Draft at Greenbush Bar. Pours a dark amber-brown color with reddish tints and a fairly thin off-white head. Aroma of caramel malts, floral hops, biscuit, and a faint bit of citrus. Flavor follows suit mostly, with notes of caramel malts early and then floral hops, nuts, citrus, toast, and sugar. Sweet and malty. Light-bodied, with average carbonation and a sweet finish. Simple and sessionable. sebletitje (10080) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 30, 2009
Cheers to Mike for sharing this one.
Pours copper with beige head.
Aroma and flavor, wheat, caramel malts, thick grainy palate, bready and malty resembling cookie dough with some light notes of hops. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 1, 2013

Smooth, soft light-medium carbonation. More dry finish. Moderate bitter taster, moderate sweet in the finish. b3shine (8878) - Indiana, USA - SEP 26, 2013
Bottle to taster (shared by alexsdad06). Looks solid; a semi-transparent orangish brown with white lacing. Smells sweet and malty with light floral notes. Tastes like it smells, sans the floral notes. Average on the palate. Okay. Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 26, 2009
Pours clear copper with thin white head. The aroma is mildly malty sweet with a touch of earthiness and spicy hops. The taste starts with a mild roasted malt astringent note and hop bite then very quickly becomes more rich with malt sweetness and some pretty solid nuttiness. It ends some lingering earthy to spicy hop notes and some refreshing dryness.

Bottle. Pours crystal clear reddish amber, small off white head, some lacing. Aroma is caramel and bread. Flavor is about the same, medium sweet, some metallic bitterness. Light body. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 23, 2005
Bottle. Poured a clear medium orange with a light layer of beige head... had some nice lacing as this went down. Nose picked up smooth caramel, earth, toasty grains, bread, and pine... became rather sticky and a little remniscent of pine resin as it wamed up. Lighter-bodied. Smooth through the mouth with bitterness around the tongue and a rather sticky finish. Flavors of toasted earth, caramel, and some floral hoppage. Nothing extraordinary about this one, but it was smooth, tasty, and very easy-drinking. TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 9, 2009
12 oz bottle from my trip to Wisconsin for GTMW. Pours a hazy orange amber, a but darker brown, a moderate offwhite head that stays at a decent layer, laces ok. Aromas are malty, caramel, toffee, and biscuits take the front. Light floral hopping, largely malt forward. Initial is malty, biscuits and caramel, bread, light bitterness, faint citrus that balances fairly well. Quite drinkable, but a bit sweet on the backend. Finish light bitterness, fairly malty, bread caramel and toffee steal the day with a touch of nuttiness and light hopping. Ok. wlajwl (6816) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUL 20, 2012
Aroma is sweetish malts and a hint of graham cracker. The flavor is malts, medium caramel and a sweet and smooth finish. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2010
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear dark copper body with a minimal fizzy white head. The nose is toasty and slightly grainy malts with a little iced tea and some light floral hops. The flavor is mostly husky crystal malt with some moderate bitterness. Finishes with a little caramel sweetness, toasted malt, and a lingering dusty graininess. Slightly sticky and clingy with moderate fizzy carbonation. A pretty forgetable beer. Meh.
