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

9/3/10. On tap in a pint glass. Plain, grainy aroma with a grainy, almost chocolatey flavor. Not bad.

"you can taste the orange peel more than the coriander, the smoky black patent malt almost taking over the flavor and aroma...like a slightly funky good black lager more than a wit. points for uniqueness. this beer was stout dark but light-medium bodied, and had a lot going on, but was still drinkable. the mix of flavors didn’t quite come together as much as i’d hoped as some of the wit character was a bit overpowered, but it tasted good. dry finish and feel. aroma a bit weak and unassuming, otherwise a good beer."

Braudog (5838) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2007 Amber beauty of a beer. Awesome malty nose with the promised caramel-nut-malt heaven-on-the-tongue. Perfect tease of a bitter end. I think this is the closest to perfect I’ve found.

TheAlum (5833) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - NOV 20, 2008
12 oz bottle from the singles rack at Binny’s (Orland Park, IL). Poured a dark hazed carmel color, small off white head. Malty nose with slight spice. Tate is similar, bready and biscuity w/ carmelized malt notes. Slight spice in the finish, light bodied, maybe even thin, but very sessionable. Cheers!

Bottled from Systembolaget Amber with a small head. Red berries and some sourish notes of vinegar in the aroma. A bit sourish flavour as we’ll with red currant and yeasty notes.

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAR 31, 2009
Bottle from Hackomal over on the other site. Thanks! Pours bright golden amber with a thin head. The aroma is sweet and toasty with hints of earthy hops. Caramel, toast with a earthy grass/peppery finish. Pretty true to style IMO.
