Bottle at Panini’s on the OSU campus. Sorry, but had to blow through this one and get a draft of Blue Moon - another example of a style of beer that just doesn’t do it for me. Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2005
Mild toasted sweet malts and butterscotch. Nice fruity hops, mild orange blossom. Dark amber clear with thin off-white lacing head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts mildly acidic and bitter, with toasted malt and sugary quality. A bit sweet in the finish with nutty bitterness and some salty after. Decent lager but not remarkable.

Colored like Jim Beam, cream colored head, light malt flavor, hint of hops, clean finish. Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - JUN 7, 2005
Bottle: Aroma of caramel with light hops. Pours a transparent amber with a small white head. Fruit and buttery caramel up front with a well balanced a very tastey grapefruit hop finish. Very good. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 6, 2005
Reddish-amber pour with a thin beige head. Very nice malty aroma, with some toffee, caramel, and lighter spices noted. Mouthfeel was very smooth, with flavors of bread, caramel, and brown sugar. Finish was of roasted malts and subtle hops. Very good brew, especially for the style! Would make a fine session beer.

Amber orange color, nice layer of head & lacing. Nose of rich malts; toffee & creme, a soufle of scents. The flavor has a rich reduced flavor, candy cane sweetness & underlying balance. Best Vienna Ever. PWalk (337) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 30, 2005
One is greeted by a great roasted malt aroma when the beer is poured out. Flavor is much the same, malt and roast fill the palate nicely. Good beer. beergodd1 (400) - Conneaut, Ohio, USA - MAY 30, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2010 Very Sweet/malty aroma when cracking the bottle, Deep amber pour, crisp yet flavorful finish...Light roasted malt finish, but all in all a fine combo with the malt/ hop/Yeast flavor! radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 30, 2005
Bottle. Amber in colour with a beige coloured head. The aroma was malty ( lots of bread, caramel and cookies) with some citrus. The flavour was of cookie dough, roasted nuts, caramel. Smooth mouthfeel, medium body, medium carbonation. Finishes with a medium lingering bitterness. Quite enjoyable. guzzler67 (1696) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAY 29, 2005
Crimson colored with a small, off-white head. First whiff was a pleasant toasted malt aroma followed by some soft fruitiness. Smooth textured mouthfeel with moderate amount of carbonation. Earthiness in the finish.
