maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 15, 2008
Bottle on 07/15/2008. Very slightly hazy copper amber body with a medium frothy white head. Sweet nutty and grainy aroma. Sweet nutty and grainy flavor with a bit of sour green apple. As I further sip on the glass, the infection becomes more clear, this is getting kinda rough, and I’m fairly disappointed. Medium body with moderate carbonation, but a bit harsh to drink.

Butters (3725) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUL 19, 2008
Pours clearish copper with thin ring of off-white head. Malty and vegetal aroma. Sour and vegetal flavor. Kind of disgusting. Bottle could have been old or infected.

obguthr (3636) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUN 18, 2010
Caramel and toffee nose, with a metallic tinge. Cloudy orange, thick yellow head, poor retention. Lightly sweet unmalted grain initially, tinny at midpalate. Finishes more bitter with rotten cherries. Not the greatest maerzen or vienna, but drinkable and still better than macro swill.

Nate (3636) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2003
Weak aroma - malt, light bitterness. Sugary and bit of caramel. Kind of herbal. Small off-white foamy head that dissipated quickly. Small amount of haze in amber tan liquid. Medium watery body and medium subdued carbonation. King of weak in taste. Malty but not that sweet with some tang/saltiness. Very little bitterness. Weak and bitter finish and nutty after.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - SEP 4, 2005
Draught at the brewpub. Medium brown color with thin head. Prominent malty aroma. Malt flavor is also prominent with licorice and caramel in there somewhere. Tastes and smells very similar to the brewery’s Black Radish offering.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAY 5, 2004
On tap at the Roanoke Island brewery. Believe it or not, this was my very first pub-brew EVER!!! The year was 1989 and I was on a litle weekend roadtrip with friends to the NC coast. We saw this charming little brewpub on the side of the road and stopped in to see what was going on in there. The beer was served in large (maybe 20 oz?) lager glasses with the Weeping Radish logo emblazend on the side. The amber was like drinking a loaf of liquid bread at the time. Rich orange color, white head, Hops! I was tasting hops for the first time! Now I know that today my jaded palate would consider this quite boring, but I owe this little NC brewpub a debt of gratitude for kindly and gently being my first time. Ah, nostalgia...

Aubrey (3430) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JUN 7, 2000
As the description says, slightly malty and toasted; quickly dissipates though. Decent, but not much flavor. It has a little nutty/malty bite, but it doesn’t last long. I was a little disappointed, especially after reading about their strong ’Bavarian’ influence.

Kinz (3251) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - OCT 18, 2003
Amber appearance, rapidly diminishing head. Aroma of mild malt and a bit of fruitiness. Not much malt backbone, some hoppy flavors in there, bit of grapefruit, and a bit of asparagus. Better than I expected, but pretty boring.

SpringsLicker (3115) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 1, 2004
Not a bad beer. This has a good balance and color. Not quite the acomplishment that their "Dark Radish" but a well made beer just the same.

On tap. Dark orange with a thin off white head. Scent is malty. Taste is malty and some nuts.
