Bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours slightly hazy deep orange amber. The yeast wasn’t exactly sticky so hard to tell whether it would have been crystal clear without. Moderate offwhite head subsides. Nose of bread, biscuit, rich malt, slight metallic. Slight perfumey noble hop. Tastes moderate sweet malt, brown bread, slight caramel, savoury maillard notes, biscuit, light bitter, touch more perfumey hop, again a tinge of metallic. This bottle’s 10 months old but may not have been stored cold... Medium body, clean, no esters, crisp malty finish, medium carb, slightly creamy. Ok, would like to try fresh.

WLG423 (201) - Connecticut, USA - NOV 4, 2009
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2009 Aroma is toasty and rather bready. Pours out a burn orange with almost no head. A grainy flavor that continues the bread aroma. Body is light with a smooth light finish

beerking99 (199) - Virginia, USA - NOV 2, 2003
Great malty-toasted aroma, with hints of honey and subtle background of hops. Beautiful amber-orange color, with a big, very dense, pure white head. Flavor is great malty and toasted with a very balancing hops backgroung.

RCx240 (198) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 6, 2014
Pours a clear, coppery amber with a rich and creamy off white head. Aroma of caramel, molasses, pine, wheat, and faint citrus. Taste is sweet caramel, molasses, mild floral notes and finished with a lingering hint of smoke. Full body, foamy and bubbly carbonation. A very nice, easy to drink beer that still manages to retain a lot of depth and character. Fabulous for a style I’m not usually that crazy for.

Fluffy head, dark golden color. Very well balanced. Roast malt and just enough hops and bitterness. Not too sweet.

luv2brew (196) - Chesterfield, Virginia, USA - SEP 14, 2007
Pours a deep copper with a massive white head that lasts a good time The nose is of fresh german malt with no hint of hop bitterness. This is very well rounded, but I was hoping for a little more sweetness. It almost has a little dryness to it. The carbonation is a little bit more than I was expecting, but they pretty much got this one right. This is extremely clean and refreshin with a very small bit of bitterness at the end.

Dimpled mug for this guy. First thing I notice about the beer is the clarity – it’s very clear. The next thing I notice is the aroma, which I can smell from where I’m sitting – my glass is about an arm’s length away. Next we have the head, which is rocky, with inconsistent large and small bubbles. As it fades, the head retention is strange. It looks like fat suspended in broth – lets hope it doesn’t taste like that. Aroma reminds me a little bit of a farm, kind of like damp straw. Damp leaves maybe. Color is amber moving to gold, a little bit darker than a pumpkin. Taste is light, with a slightly salt water mineral finish. Mouthfeel isn’t sticky, more along the lines of creamy. Lager yeast is the name of the game here, as it dominates everything, from the nose of the beer into the first taste. I expected this to have more malt characteristics, honestly, and they are there, to be sure, though not as sweet as I would like. Instead hops are the focus, with some grassy dandelion hops lending a small amount of bitterness to the whole thing. I find this beer strangely drinkable. It’s not like anything I’ve had before – and that’s always surprising. Distinctive.
