12-oz. Pours a crystal clear dark amber with a loose smudge of gray film on top. Cabbage and smoldering dry leaves on the nose. Watery, fairly flat light body. Toast, leaves, and less cabbage on the mid-palate. Mild doughy finish.

12oz bottle from Lukas Liquor. Pours clear copper with nice one finger off-white head. Aroma is sweet malt, light caramel and some spices. Flavor is sweet malts, caramel, light hops, and metallic notes. Little bit more full flavor and mouthfeel compared to Left Hand’s version I just had, but not exactly better.

Pours amber with a white head. Smells of sweet malt and spicy. Tastes dry and bland with some peppery splashes. Disappointing.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - MAY 8, 2009
12 oz bottle. Pours an orange-copper color with a 2 finger white head that is quick to evaporate. Aroma of caramel, cinnamon and a light pine hop note. Flavor is all malt with some light spiciness and pine hop. Okay, but nothing to write home about.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - FEB 9, 2009
Bottle Pours a dark slightly hazy amber/brown with only a minimal off-white head that lingers nicely. Lacing is sparse and chunky. Aroma mostly of dark malts, and caramel. Flavor is malt and nuts but kind of thin. Just has that mass-produced taste. Carbonation is quite soft. Easy on the hops and the finish is lacking bitterness but a woody earthen taste is there.

djd07 (6253) - Houston, Texas, USA - DEC 3, 2008
Bottle. Pours a cloudy copper color wtih a medium frothy white head that diminishes quickly. The aroma is sweet fruit with raisin and light hops. Decent lacing on the glass. The taste is a sweet roasted malt with caramel and a spicy finish. A good amber ale from Widmer.

DubC5000 (305) - San Francisco, California, USA - OCT 24, 2008
Maple malty aroma. Dark orange in color, with more than typical carbonation for an ale. Some resiny hop sweetness and leafiness. Flavor continues sweet malt backdrop and mild hop accents. Some alcohol burn and ’’choke’’ present but I think it adds to the character rather than detracts. Beer is filling and warming.
