COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed to celebrate our 15th Anniversary. Brewed in the traditional German style using German Malts, Hops and yeast. A brilliant golden to light amber color with a big malty aroma and smooth flavor profile to match. Hints of Munich and Vienna malts emerge in the finish.

A brown beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of malt, caramel, and bread. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, bread, and a hop note carrying thru all the way to the finish.

alexanderj (3266) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - NOV 12, 2009
On tap at Beachwood about a week ago. Color was a dark amber with an off white head. Aroma of wet, ripe fruit with dirty sea water; quite weird. Flavor was also strange; sweet tarts mixed with bread and wet fruit. Surprisingly poor for me.

joeneugs (2932) - Livermore, California, USA - SEP 1, 2009
On tap at Pete’s in Danville. Nice bock. Pours caramel color with an off white head. Sweet aroma. Tastes of caramel and red/purple fruit. Its not too cloying or syrupy as some inferior brews of this style can get. Pretty drinkable.
