Pours a one-finger white bubbly head leaving a ring and not much lace. Clear light, amber color. Medium carbonation. Medium bodied. Nose is sweet. Starts and finishes sweet. The high ABV is not really noticeable. An excellent choice. $3.50 for a 400ml bottle from Colonial Spirits Acton, Ma.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 13, 2004
Bottle pours amber, small milky white head, decent lacing, with lively carbonation. Sweet grains on the nose, slight banana & clove as well. Up front its sweet malts on the tongue, sweet grass/grain in the middle, but quickly it turns into a somewhat harsh hairspray/medicinal/metallic flavor at the end. This beer had me all the way up to the finish. Otherwise, good body and a slightly creamy/syrupy mouthfeel. That 9.1% ABV is quite noticable.

DCopperfields (146) - New York, USA - MAR 11, 2004
Beer poured the color of honey, a little cloudy and nice carbonation. Head dissipated to cloud above the ale within a couple of minutes, but leaving globs of lace. Aroma brings sweet malt to mind, the flavor of caramel. Nice strong malt up front, good bitterness, nice hop balance. Strong tasting ale, but. 9% ABV is very deceptive. Finishes bitter. Pretty good drinking stuff, I will definitely do these again.

Ungstrup (35665) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 29, 2004
The aroma is very sweet - no wonder with the 9.1% ABV - and it has notes of peaches and yeast. The color is dark amber and it has a beutiful lasting off-white head. The flavor is also sweet with notes of peach and alcohol. A nice beer to give warmth on a freezing winter night.

IPFreely (1470) - Sanborn, New York, USA - FEB 27, 2004
Lighter bronze color, sizeable head. Aroma of light fruit and some malt. Flavor is pretty sweet, malty, a little fruity, with a bit of an alcohol kick. Slightly bitter finish. Medium body, a little harsh but not too bad.

Bottled. Only thing this one had going was malt and alcohol.

warrior (213) - Mt. Wolf, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 28, 2003
Slight fruity aroma. Malty sweet flavor with some alcohol taste. Finish has a little yeast flavor. Reminds me a little bit of a Maibock. This is a decent beer but I would like more flavor to help mask the alcohol more.

MaiBockAddict (1497) - Good Beer Bar Deprived, New Jersey, USA - DEC 20, 2003
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2003 This beer (to use a Hopscotchism) ROCKS!!! Deep yellow color with a perfect white head. Spicey floral aroma with hints of alcohol, that says "Grand Cru". Big malty profile perfectly balanced with spicey hops and a slight alcohol burn. Absolutely delicious!!!

Just finished my finals, so I stopped at Discount and picked up some beer to rate. This one has an interesting taste, lots of carbonation, but it works for this beer. Not bad.
