Bottle Pours a clear amber with a decent of white head. The heads has average lasting. Lacing is okay. Aroma was subtle with hints of floral hops and spices, Had a good carbonation. The flavor was drinkable but not very deep. Has a good mouthfeel. The texture is watery. Has an okay finish with a easy aftertaste. Refreshing and drinkable but not real memorable.

A nice straight forward festbier that is clean and malty. Well made and enjoyable.

This beer pours a dark copper color, perhaps amber and red with a slightly thick tanned head which faded off quickly after the pour. The aroma was funky with matted wet dog hair, malt, cardboard and spices being the predominant smell. Not the best aroma, but somewhat enticing. Flavor-wise we had the same scenario. This reminded me heavily of a winter beer as it is dominated by spices in the finish. It seems like a sickening degree of coriander and ginger in the finish...long lasting and cardboard dryness. Some malt, a hint of fruity peel, but it seems more like the spices than anything. I just couldnt get into all the spices this beer had to offer...it was dry and it just didnt have a degree of balance i would look for..

Had on tap at Howards pub in Ocracoke. Pours a nice amber/ orange color- white head disappates immediately. Light and refreshing on the palate- feels like a amber summer beer. Lots of sweetness from the malts- not much hoppiness or finsih to it. Pretty inoffensive- interesting that all the lighter beer drinkers in the crowd chose this from the tap list. Good crossover/ sesssion beer. Might be nice at a summer bbq instead of the usual mass produced offererings. Not bad.

I had this one on the outer banks. It is full bodied and pours a nice amber. It is very drinkable and smooth. Nice taste. I would certainly have it again.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 30, 2003
Deep amber with a thick white head and good carbonation. Balanced aromas of nutty malts and herbal hops. Came off as a bold, full bodied beer that I would bet would be great with German food. Seemed similar to a Marzen with its bitterness, but without the sour aftertaste. Good balance of sweet and bitter flavors.

Nothing distinguishing about this brew. Typical for all microbrew lagers. Slightly bitter and tangy. Not very complex, but pretty drinkable. An average brew at best.

brigg (623) - Washington DC, USA - JUL 11, 2008
Cloudy, red amber body with a substantial, but disappearing head. Aroma is floral hops, and spicy with some sweet malt; not very strong. Flavor is floral hops and fruit (tart apples), malt, and buttery. Somewhat watery, but in a drinkable, refreshing way. Light mouthfeel.

maltdog (621) - Colorado, USA - DEC 9, 2004
BBD April ’04! Clear copper/amber, nicely carbonated, leaves a smallish dimpled camel head with poor retention and no lace. Nutty, maple-y autumn aromas... pecan pie, butter cookies, baked yams. Malt flavor is scoured by tongue-nipping carbonation. Green apple and some distracting acidity. Mild, well-balanced bitterness. Silky mouthfeel. Aftertaste of challah bread and tannins.
