sonnycheeba (5140) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle. Pours clear dark copper with fizzy off-white head. Aroma is cereal and caramel malts, light fig, faint earthy notes, and some toast. Flavor is sweet bready malts, dark fruit esters, faint hops, and light corn; dry finish. Light/medium body and medium carbonation.

Aurelius (5094) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Lightly sweet, toasted malt aroma. Embossed brown bottle, clear, intense burnt orange beer with a light white head. Nicely bitter, nutty sweetness, toasty. The body is a bit flabby/starchy - without the crispness desired. Some overbrewed, metallic hop notes in the finish. Overall, probably a good value if you’re looking for a marzen. ABC Liquors, Bull Run.

Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Nose is like a slightly-stronger version of Traditional Lager. Smells like America. Taste is fairly malty with a touch of bread.

oldrtybastrd (5003) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 13, 2016
Pours a medium amber with two finger head. Smells of light malt and a touch of wood. Flavors of malt, a little wood, and a touch of fruit.

nearbeer (4917) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 24, 2013
12 oz. Clear shiny copper with a lasting quarter inch of foam. Nose is sour-sweet dry grass and earthy, toasted grain. Taste is the same as the aromas with some corn and mildly tart apple thrown in, and toasted nut on the dryish finish. A hint of a metallic note in the long finish. Mouthfeel is a bit light. Malty as per the style, but fairly balanced. Smooth, average level of carbonation.

ChainGangGuy (4808) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - OCT 6, 2011
16 ounce pint - Taco Mac in Canton, Georgia.

Appearance: Dark amber-hued body, good clarity, and capped beneath a slim, white head.

Smell: Sweetish scent, fairly tame, with light notes of toasted grains and caramel flavoring.

Taste: Crisped grains with some toasty elements to it and a light hint of caramel flavoring. Faint, vaguely herbal hops, mildly bitter. Sweetish, faintly grainy finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium-plus carbonation with some tingle to it.

Overall: The caramel taste here, it’s... it’s just odd, and, maybe it’s just me, but it seemed to have a falseness to it, like the added flavoring to that Saranac Caramel Porter. It’s not an abhorrent beer, but it sure doesn’t stack up against the better examples of the style (or even the not-so-better ones).

snoworsummer (4803) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 7, 2013
From a bottle. Pours clear medium brown with a thin white head. Tastes very much like sweet corn and malt, kind of syrupy. Medium body and carbonation. Smells like sweet malt and corn syrup.

emacgee (4613) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Pours a clean and sharp orange amber with one finger of creamy tan head. Nose is mellow. Some malty sweetness and fruity notes. Flavor is meh, soft malty sweetness and touch of fruity/caramelish notes. Some raisiny notes. Mild herbal hop character. Medium light body and soft bitterness. Very light and soft body.

nick76 (4379) - Tampa, Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2012
The aroma is papery with dirty dish water and caramel. it has very little hops as expected. The appearance is light copper with an average head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is average. Overall I am not a fan.

unclemattie (4358) - Georgia, USA - SEP 10, 2012
12oz twist-off bottle. Deep orange / light copper color. Long lasting off-white foam. Distant wood aromas. Flavor of toasted malts. Very smooth, lighter bodied. Loads of wood character. Very soft texture, easy drinking. Flavor is mellow, very well balanced. There is a nice caramel malt in the finish that follows up with earthy hop flavors along with some vanilla. Nothing like Sam Adams’ Oktoberfest (which is a Vienna), thank goodness. This is the perfect American representation of the old-world Fest Style beer. Very nice balance. (3455)
