Sweetish dark malt aroma, without molasses. Woody, musty malting. Initially seems drier than it finishes out. Rather simple. Finishes sweet with a medium-light bitterness. Medium mouth. zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 6, 2006
Bottle. Pours red orange with off white head. Aroma is very malty tangy. Flavor is the same, with a hint of caramel. This beer is watery much like most of the other brews that I’ve sampled at the Church Brew Works. BrockLanders (780) - Panama City, Florida, USA - JUL 27, 2006
Tap at the works. Nice dark amber pour..fluffy whitish head. BIg sweet aroma...malty, cara-toffee notes...interesting...a big departure from the previous establishment samples. The flavor is big malt, toasted sugar, with a soft roasty finish. Not bad...interesting interpretation. TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUL 22, 2006
06 State College Brew Expo. Pours a translucent goldne amber with a bubbly off white head. Aroma of sweet malts, caramel, toffee, no hops present but pleasant. Flavor along the same lines. JPDIPSO (6216) - Wauwatosa, USA - JUN 26, 2006
Bright fiery brown color with a smallish taupe colored head. Caramel aromas with a accent of darker toasted malts. HInts of floral hops as well. Sweet toasty flavors mix with a mild caramel and light honey taste. Quite roasty and toasty in the finish. A rather simple brew, a touch sweet more like a toasty amber.

Old bottle 05 pours lively with a beige foam that quickly fades to a lone foam
island bombarded with mini tsunamis at each sip.Color:amber to brown leaning towards brown. Nice malt aroma,caramel and toffee.Taste very rich caramel flavor with some brown sugar sweetness.Not a big fan of german lagers this struck me more as a brown ale or a scottish ale.The age has rid it of all traces of hop and made it a easy drinker. kramer (6682) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 20, 2006
12 oz bottle, via CMUBEERMAN. Pours a clear dark copper/orangish color with a small off-white head that faded quickly. Aroma is rather grainy with some caramel and toasted malts. Flavor overall is very minimal, just pale malt with a light bitterness in the finish. None of the malty sweetness I look for. Mouthfeel is very thin with very active carbonation. Overall, except for the color, this was a Pale Lager. No sweetness or body, the hallmarks of the style for me. lamas (1636) - Washington DC, USA - APR 15, 2006
Bottle. A clear ruby pour with a smallish tan head. A roasty malt aroma that features some caramel and a little chocolate and coffee. The taste is equally roasty. Medium body. Starts with a good bit of caramel, roasted coffee and milk chocolate. A crisp finish with a little bitterness and a hint of lemon. Nejhleader (1550) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 28, 2006
had a bit caramel taste to it. Nice brown colour. went down very easy, overall not too shabby. IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - NOV 14, 2005
On tap Mister Goodbar, Buffalo. Pours a reddish brown color with a light tan head. Aroma of fruity malt, light floral hops. Flavor was fruity, slightly nutty, light bitterness. Light to medium bodied. Pretty drinkable. Not bad.
