Cornfield (5362) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - OCT 30, 2008
Nice pour from the swing-top bottle, a clear orange body with a three-fingered head. Oddly, no lacing. The aroma a fairly unchecked sweetness, honeyed warm bread and a dollop of caramel. The flavor’s more on target, toasty bread, honey, caramel, and an herbal/earthy bitterness to balance out the maltiness. The finish has an herbal dryness to it. Not bad.

Tap at Spuyten Duyvil. One of the top two on the day. Clear honey color with a nice white head. Subtle yet well developed aroma - dried herbal notes, hops in the middle, and a undercooked breadiness throughout (it worked...). Nothing sticks out here and everything works together. I guess that means it’s well balanced.

notalush (4631) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 19, 2008
Tap at Spuyten Duyvil - clear golden beer - frothy, well-sustained head - thick, sticky lace - beautiful, malt-forward aroma, with strong honey smells, and a lot of floral character allowing herbal hops to stick to it - very smooth - light, almost herbal bitterness - a bit of nutty, sweet maltiness - a lot of late bready character - the hops are just enough to keep things balanced - super drinkable and tasty - one of the hits of the day for me.

OldGrowth (2478) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 19, 2008
Pint @ Tyler’s Apex. Good aroma, Sweet. Caramel apple, grass. Clean brownish orange color, little to no head. Bitter sweet flavor. Malty, stale bread, wet autumn leaves, little smoke, paper/cardboard. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, clean finish with a mild bitterness. Tasty brew, aroma was a keeper, flavor no so much, leans to a bready cardboard thing I don’t go for.

JoeMcPhee (8188) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 19, 2008
Tap at Spuyten Duyvil. Clear pale amber beer topped by a thick creamy white head. Very clean malty aroma. Light crackery pale malt and a soft flinty hoppiness. A bit herbal and hoppy with a light hoppiness. There is even a touch of smoke on the back of this one, but it’s very subtle. Nice easy drinking festbier. Great balance. Off to a good start.

17thfloor (2428) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 15, 2008
Pours a clear amber with a small frothy white head. Proper marzen aroma, grassy, sweet toasted caramel malt. Grassy flavor, slightly sweet, bready, toasted cereal, light honey. Nice body, medium with fluffy carbonation. Nothing too interesting here, a bit disjointed, the sweetness and and bitterness are not in harmony.

heemer77 (5080) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 9, 2008
Bottle. Deep amber color that is nearly copper with a rocky off white head. The aroma has some fresh bread dough and a little bit og hay. There is also some apple. The taste has some bread crust as well as a little bit of caramel. There is a nice balance along with a solid malt base. Nicely done.

Bigsilky (327) - Charleston, USA - OCT 8, 2008
Excellent orange-amber color, not too dark, beautiful head. Fresh aromas of warm biscuits and malted barley. Palate is short, but only in a very gracious and mannered way. The finish is nice and clean but bolstered by a lingering hop that just dims the lights. Balance, Balance, Balance!!!! All about balance, nice with an old Mimmolette, and a waiting glass. Ayinger is a benchmark of mine and this is working on my affections.

theisti (3093) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - OCT 6, 2008
500 ml swingtop bottle purchased at Beertopia in Omaha, Nebraska. The label in this one was "Monk’s Fest". Pour is golden orange with a 1 inch off white head. Aroma of corny sweet maltiness, some grass and hay. Bready, grainy. Taste is watery sweet maltiness, faint grass / hay. Nothing off in the taste, super drinkable. Nothing really jumps out, good or bad, though this is a pleasant, very drinkable beer.

ruggedman (647) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 5, 2008
On tap at Novare Res’ Octoberfest celebration. Sampled a couple liter beers of this beer. Loved the drinkability, the biscuity flavors, the sweet malt aroma, and the nice golden autumn color. Perfect beer for this time of year. Nice to get this rare beer locally!
