Dark copper with a quickly dying head. There's a light smoky malt character here. It's smooth, undistinctive, but it's OK. Better than Bud. ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - NOV 1, 2003
Had one of these on tap at the "Ram Restaurant and Brewery" in downtown Indy. Pours a sparkling dark ruby. The mostly lasting average off white head is in between frothy and creamy. The nice lace adorns the side of the pint glass in encompassing sheets. The subtle nose is mostly floral with some light caramel and cereal tones. The toasty flavor is mostly cereal malt with no acidity. The mild and malty finish is even keeled and brisk. The medium dry palate is lively. bu11zeye (13239) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - OCT 14, 2003
(Bottle) Aroma is better than the name implies. Pours deep amber brown color with a small white head. Okay, but nothing overly exciting. PrinceofNessus (236) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 4, 2003
smells malty and corney, with a white head, and a dark amber color. The flavor is sickly sweet and malty witgh an acidic bite, vegtables, kinda a narsty taste. 3fourths (9367) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 3, 2003
Deep amber brown. Looks like a bock. Typical malty syrup aroma and flavor, sticky and ugly. Malty, nutty and with some vanilla. Nothing worth continuing to write about.

Poured a medium reddish brown with a slightly off white head. Aroma was sour and slightly buttery(?). Flavor was very malty and very tangy, almost like vinegar. The flavor struck me as very unbalanced, overwhelmingly cidery. Maybe my bottle had gone bad? This beer became undrinkable about halfway through and became a sour feast for the drain. I'll try this again in the future and rerate if my rated sample was indeed spoiled. BückDich (5477) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUL 9, 2003
Clear amber color with foamy white head. Nutty toffeeish aroma with grapefruitish hops. Flavor is slightly hoppy with a background of malt, fairly well balanced but a little too musky and tart for my taste. Aurelius (5654) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 12, 2003
Cascade aroma with some caramel. Highly hopped and maybe a little overbrewed. Gets tinny in the finish. Good moutfeel. Bronze beer with creamy head. AceOfHearts (1374) - Mountain View, California, USA - MAY 8, 2003
Tap at Dallas location. Reddish-amber, average looking. Ugh...adjunctive malts prevail here too, but at least it's something to chew on after their blonde. omhper (25949) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 24, 2003
Sampled draught at Humperdinks, Dallas, Texas.
Dark amber. Fruity and roasty with a touch of soapy citrus fruits. Rather malty, but mellow. Syrupy, bitter finish.
