COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Seductively smooth, this medium-bodied amber beauty is akin to the great Oktoberfest beers of Munich. All German hops make this lager true to style. Patient cold aging makes it wonderfully smooth. In bottles September through February

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - OCT 29, 2006
Pours a deep clear amber with a film for head. Sweet malty nose, thin with mainly malt flavor predominating. Hint of old vegetable and nuts. With almost no bitterness in the finish. One-dimensional, boring.

punkrkr27 (903) - Berkley, Michigan, USA - OCT 26, 2006
Clear brown witha slight orange tint and a small white head which fades very quickly. Bready, malty aroma with some slight grassiness and a mild spicy hop note. Fairly even balance of doughy malts and noble hops. Very thin and watery body with a tingly carbonation.

Sampled with Stegosaurus and Beerded_one at Newtown Beerfest. Amber pour with caramel aroma. Bread flavor with hints of tofee. Not bad.

kopher (592) - New York, USA - OCT 17, 2006
(12 oz. bottle - "Enjoy By: Feb 24 07") Pours light brownish/reddish like apple cider with a few bubbles on top. Smells like rotten apples. Taste is much better, though a bit too sweet. Lots of sweet fruit and honey and a touch of bitter-sweet hoppiness, maybe. Malty. Smooth but a bit too thin. Good light carbonation. Nice finish.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - OCT 16, 2006
Poured a hazy copper color with a large off-white head. Caramel malty aroma with light notes of fruit and brown sugar. The flavor starts fruity then turns to caramel. Semi-dry finish.

hophead75 (2008) - Largo, Florida, USA - OCT 16, 2006
bottle. Pours a clear amber/copper. The aroma is toasted and/or slight roasted malt, some hops. Taste is toasted/slight roasted malt, some caramel malt, with a balanced hop presence.

JCapriotti (1379) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 15, 2006
Clear copper body. Soapy, bubbly off-white head. Aroma has dried grass and crackers. Lots of miscellaneous sweet notes throughout. Flavor is much of the same, some sticky sweetness in a dry crackery base. Quite good and for me, like a german style, but with hints of american influence. The malt profile seems simple, yet deceptively complex.

Tmoney99 (11094) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 15, 2006
Bottle sample at Clifton Beer Fest. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly diminished with fair lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration.

cheap (4210) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2006
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2006 A little darker than yer typical pale yellow american beer. No haze, transparent. Less than average carbonation. Slight bitter hops on the flavor and in the finish, probably not to style. Smooth, as advertised. Moonglow is better.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - OCT 8, 2006
12oz bottle. Reddish tea-like appearance with an orange hue; medium off-white head with good retention and lacing. Nose is very sweet, showing grapes and candy sugar. Mouthfeel shows crisp carbonation, tea-like dryness, plenty of candy sugar, floral hops, and slightly vegetal (a fact my fiance won’t shut up about - kudos to 1FastSTi for pegging it as corn; she’s now appeased). Light-to-medium finish. This is decent, but would earn a few points without the vegetal aspect.
