Looks great with a good white head and a deep amber body, smells great with a creamy malty aroma and then taste like an old tin can. There is definatly something lacking in the taste of this beer which is a big let down because I liked their black raddish brew alot.

Definitely not a festbier. It looked like one, but it was quite bitter and had not malty side, no toffee toastiness either. I had this side by side with their helles and the difference is negligable - both are dominated by bitterness with no hop flavor and lacking malt body.

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.

This is not a very good lager...at all. Seemed way too dry and flavorless.

Panzuriel (1358) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2002
Slightly vinegar smell. Sweet and creamy. Slightly cloudly amber orange liquid fizzy head. First taste very carmelly, with an acrid almost vinegary fruit hint. Whole experience similar to drinking syrup flavored with raspberry candies.

ARMed (613) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2002
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.

Suttree (5256) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 25, 2003
Dark copper, kahki head. Bready, yeasty aroma. Nice and full bodied. Salty, veggie (califlower?) flavor. decent finish, but the veggie flavor dominates. can't recommend.

ROGUE (2127) - Newark, Delaware, USA - NOV 19, 2009
12oz bottle. Poured a clear dark amber color with a two finger whitish head. Aroma brown sugar and mild spice. Taste was more sweet than bitter, with sweet caramel malts and some hop balancing. A strange bitter flavor throughout. Somewhat thin, very carbonated.

On draft at the brewery restaurant. Pours clear amber with a white head. Sweet malt backbone. Not much else.
