jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - NOV 29, 2007
Pours hazy amber-brown with a large off-white head. Malty aroma: very sweet and bready, with a touch of raw grain. Light metallic notes. Caramel malt in the flavor alongside biscuity, tangy, almost rye-ish flavors. There’s a hint of smokiness that gives this one a winter-ish slant. Tasty, elegant little lager. Who cares which season it’s named after?

ChazMania (658) - Pasadena, California, USA - DEC 6, 2006
One of those little pony-kegs (gift to me). Got it nice and chilly. Poured with a nice head but thats where the experience stopped. The flavor was flat, nothing to say at all. Maybe hoppy beers have ruined me to enjoy anything else. I’m not sure I will even drink anymore, it may simply get tossed. I don’t have the patience to drink this thing "just because it’s there" I’d rather really enjoy my beer.

joeyplush (648) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2009
Sweet malt and honey aroma. Light amber to copper color and a thick tan head. Taste of sweet malt and honey, with some light spiciness.

darkseduction (643) - Zweibrücken, GERMANY - DEC 1, 2013
Dose 5l. Kupferfarbenes, blankes Bier, untergärig. Schöne Cappucino-Crema, sehr appetitlich. Getreidige Malztöne verbinden sich mit einer unaufdringlichen Hopfenblume. Sehr süffig, erfüllt die Erwartungen an diese großartige Brauerei.

cprochak (590) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2009
Bottle from Bottleworks. Honey and cough syrup aroma. Pours thick, but clear with a head that lingers. Very sweet taste, and the alcohol is more pronounced than expected.

Marstonlad (518) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JAN 31, 2013
Pours reddish copper with a head that disappears quickly. Malty aroma is pretty mild; flavours of hay, bread and some herbs. Taste is crisp with solid clean malty flavours featuring most. Only a little herbal notes in the finish. Overall somewhat dry, light to medium bodied, slick palate. Very drinkable, clean German beer - no mistakes but no variance either.
