Light brown, not mch head. Nose is malty, hops are definitely noticeable. Malts predominate with the usual caramel tones, but held back by the sweetness. Hops definitely assert themselves at the end, some good bitterness. Lacks body, is a bit thin in the middle, could use to be a bit stickier.

Slightly sweet, good malt and spice......................................... IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - OCT 13, 2003
Murky brown color, fluffy tan head. Sweet earthy aroma, malty. Malty and nutty flavor, once again very earthy. Mouthfeel was comparable to raspberry iced tea: dry. Not bad, but I'd skip it over. kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - FEB 24, 2004
Light chestnut, hazy. Nice tan head fades quickly. Malt flavors predominate--the sweetness becomes more apparent as it warms above cooler temperature. The Hallertau tops are not much in evidence.

Pours an amber brown with a thin tan head. Has a thick, belgian-like aroma with lots of dark fruits and yeast. Also has a noticable woody, caramel, nutty aroma. Although it smells like it will be a great beer, ithe flavor is somewhat bland. There is a good malt presence, but that’s about all this beer has going for it. There is some brown sugar, spices, and raisins initially on the palate, but it finishes very thin and watery. I was hoping for a lot more out of this one - weak.

dark red, headless, sweet carmel malt aroma and flavor, just enough bitterness in the finish to keep it from being too sweet
Aroma: 6/10; Appearance: 5/10; Flavor: 6/10; Palate: 5/10; Overall: 13/20
The score was calculated based upon the notes and an old scoring system.
Toasty amber lager; slight smokiness, clean malt flavours; light finish let me down. YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - MAR 25, 2004
Copper body with a weak white head. Caramel, yeast, buttery nose. Some fruit. Flavor had some fruitiness and malt. A refreshing drink.
