COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This spring time brew contains a sturdy German hop profile that gives it inherent spiciness that leads to a crisp, dry, fresh finish to balance the sweet malt character.

Dogbrick (7575) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Sample at the Upland Tasting Room. Hazy amber-orange color with a medium white head that dissipates steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roast malt, caramel and hops. Light to medium body with flavors of toasted malt, earthy hops and caramel. The finish is sweet with a bready malt aftertaste. Decent overall.

574deadzone (980) - North Central, Indiana, USA - MAY 26, 2014
On tap at the Brewpub. Pours a clear amber-orange with a decent khaki head that leaves some thick, foamy lace behind. Nose involves sweet malt, dusty yeast, and light noble hop spice and earth. Pretty sweet flavor, but also fairly bitter. Medium to full bodied, oily, fairly active, with a long dusty finish. Very enjoyable, just about right as the style goes, and balanced between refreshing and substance.

phaleslu (6204) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Draft at the Upland Tasting Room. Pours a clear orange-gold with a small off-white head that leaves a sheet of lace. The aroma is mostly just malty - crackers, toast, bread. The flavor is cleaner and not quite as malty, with some balancing leafy and grassy notes. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a dry, malty mouthfeel. Decent maibock.

b3shine (5131) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 14, 2013
Draft to taster at Upland. Looks solid; a transparent orange with off-white lacing. Smells and tastes of caramel, malt, and dough with a solid lager mouthfeel. Not bad.

Huhzubendah (2399) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Bottle shared by plank10. Thanks Nick. The beer is orange hued with a thin white head that leaves sparse lacing on the glass. The aroma carries grain, fruit, malt, sweetness. Smells like a bock. The taste follows suit, with a present sweetness throughout. Fruit, grains, and a bit of alcohol. Fairly thin in body. A decent beer, but not on par with the authentic German examples of the style.

Bottle. Grainy caramel malt aroma. Amber with a small beige head. Bready malt and caramel flavor with a spicy hop finish, a little boozy. Medium body, lively carbonation.

burg326 (3508) - Florida, USA - MAY 22, 2012
12 ounce bottle poured an amber caramel color. Aromas of sweet malt, little hops, caramel, and some toffee. Flavors are the same as aroma, decent beer overall, would drink again.

Pours a slightly hazy orange/gold with tan head. Sweet, malty scent.....bread, caramel. Taste is sweet, spiced...slight fresh hop bitter...breads and light fruit. Alcohol is very well hidden.. A pretty nice beer.

bluejacket74 (1263) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - NOV 25, 2011
12 ounce bottle, bottled in April 2011. Served in a mug, the beer pours a slightly hazy orange/amber color with about an inch off-white head. The head goes away quickly, and there isn’t much lacing. Aroma is sweet and malty, the brew smells like bready malt, dark fruit, toffee and a little bit of grassy hops. Taste is mostly sweet, it tastes like toffee, bready and caramel malt, and some grassy hops. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it’s a bit syrupy and slick with good carbonation. I’d like to try a fresher bottle of this, but this one wasn’t too bad at all. $1.99 for a single bottle at Liquor Barn.
