I give up, this beer needs alot of work, but with that work it could be good. It is way too soft and yeasty. Very boring, and slightly watery. For not being offensive I give it an average mark.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Overall an unremarkable beer. Pours a deep amber with a cream colored head. Sweet malty aroma with a hint of fruitiness. Mild malt flavoring with a shortlived slighty sweet malty aftertaste.

UPDATED: SEP 15, 2004 RERATE: <b?Draft. Had this off tap at a restaurant in Outer Banks. Decent caramel flavor reminds me a little of Red Stripe. Mild carbonation, minimal head. Smooth drinker. Deep orange hue.

Thin color but great head. Not much on the nose, a little sugar and hops. Thin and crisp. A decent quaffer but nothing to write home about.

Bottle, OBX, NC. Amber lager - good oily copper color, foamy white head initially, disappers quickly, solid mellow taste, slightly sweet malt and tracing of hops followed by a fairly crisp finish. Pretty darn good.

Beer just tastes better to me when I'm at the beach. I guess it's psychological. This is one of my faves when I'm down in Nags Head NC. Nice malt flavor but with a good balance. Not super deep, but still has a bit of complexity.

Very drinkable fest bier. Caramelly, soft, malty. Can drink massive quantities.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Unpastuerized half-liter bottle from the brewery, 12/06. Pours a brilliant dark copper with nice carbonation but just a thin coverage and little ring of an off-white head. Pleasant subtle aroma of lightly toasted malts which, with a touch of noble hops, imparts a lightly fruity (cherry) aroma. Sweet malty flavor with some nice toasty notes coming through. Pretty clean with just a little bitterness upfront and a smooth, balanced, although somewhat dull finish. Medium bodied and medium carbonation, with a fairly smooth mouthfeel. This is a solid German-sytle Fest and one of the better Weeping Radish offerings.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From bottle. Brought back from OBX. Pours amber with decent white head. Sour aroma and taste overwhelm this beer.
