larsga (6923) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 6, 2008
Biggish offwhite head. Amber body with light carbonation. Light earthy caramel aroma with faint papery notes and some hops at the far back. Dry earthy caramel taste. Clean, sharpish mouthfeel. Bitter earthy caramel aftertaste with grassy hop notes and a touch of wood. Good, but the taste is very subdued. If there were more of it this could be really great; as it is it’s OK. (0.5l bottle at Cardinal.)

Ernest (6905) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 23, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 26, 2008 Bottle (BB Feb 09). Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing. Body is light amber. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted bread, malt syrup, cookie, husks), lightly hoppy (flowers), with a note of peach. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation. A tired, rough, uninspiring example. The brewers seem to just be phoning this in.

jonas (6301) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - OCT 27, 2003
Grassy bitterhop notes with a bisquit background. Orange amber with a lowish creamy head. Nice broad hop flavors on top of a firm malt body. Hops are fresh and malt is fruity, I do not think this is a beer which ages or travels well. It is nice finally to taste a well-done german fall/winter seasonal.
