Bottle. Bright copper golden with small white head. Malty aroma, hints of honey, very light hops. Incredibly well balanced. Delicately malty, the finish is excellent. If I can get my hands on a fresher bottle Ill rerate this, otherwise this is a great beer.

JFGrind (2030) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2004
Average flavored Dortmunder, light on hops and aroma. Alcohol content was stonger than I expected.

TChrome (1457) - Bedford, Texas, USA - MAY 10, 2004
Dark golden in color with a medium egg white head that is retained. Aroma is fairly muted, but consists of light hops and light breadiness. Flavor is also restained but exceeds the aroma. Flavors of light hoppy bitterness, a little malt sweetness and a very dry finish. Another good beer from Great Lakes. I will enjoy this one during the Texas summer.

badgerben (5030) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - MAY 8, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 28, 2010 Original Rating, May 8, 2004: Very golden color with little head. Aroma is a little vacant... malt? Taste is very well balanced between hops and malt. Very clean. Im a little torn because it is so balanced, but it also does not seem to have much to offer in the way of a flavor. 6/4/5/4/13 Re-rating, May 28, 2010: Dark gold color with a quickly falling medium head. Very faint aroma of grains. Mostly a grainy flavor, with a bit of bitterness and astringency. Fairly dry. Hint of earthy hops.

Sammy (11772) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 6, 2004
A beautiful color. One of the best beers we have had that goes with almost any meal because of its overall balance. I have never had a bad beer from this legendary brewpub.

Kingman (26) - Lexington, Ohio, USA - APR 27, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2004 Uniquely bitter with a touch of sweetness at the end. Strong golden color. One of my favorite beers from the tap.

Tmoney99 (14109) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 23, 2004
Moderate malty with a grain/hop tone. Clear medium amber color with large frizzy white head. Bitter flavor and finish that lasted a long time.

NVBeer232 (467) - Reno, Nevada, USA - APR 17, 2004
Golden color with a pretty rich white head. Aromas of bready malts and a touch of hop zest. Flavors of biscuity malts with a pretty hoppy finish. A standby session brew.

roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2004 Aroma of a combination of malts and hay. A little hop bitterness with a full sweeter aftertaste. Really a tough beer to describe. Smooth yet strong, its flavor is very multidimensional. Very carbonated.
