Hazy golden color with a big white head. Aroma is lightly sweet like honey, and a bit of yeast. Flavor is a very nicely balanced blend of malts and hops, not too sweet, no bitter taste. Lightly roasted marshmallows, with a touch of honeysuckle. Finish is light but lingering...... bhensonb (15969) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 11, 2008
500 ml. bottle from Liquid Solutions. Slightly hazy gold color with a multi-finger white head. Aromas of wheat and banana and veg/herb. Medium body with lightly frothy carbonation. Flavor is wheat (probably none in reality, but that’s it for my mouth) and herb/veg/hop with a hint of banana. Rather bready. Really refreshing in the heat, winter beer or no. Good drink. Finish is dryish, and there is definite herb/hop bitter. BückDich (5477) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JUN 25, 2008
Bottle: Pours a copper color with a nice white head. The nose is herby with some nice caramel malt and yeasty notes. The flavor is pungent with ripe banana and toasty biscuit along with the light fruitiness of the yeast and the hops. The finish is clean and distinct. Very nice body, quite a nice beer. ganache (6089) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 31, 2008
Swing-top. Nose is yeasty and sweetly malty, touches of grain and cellar, nicely spicy. Hazy dark amber pour with a creamy rocky white head. Taste is more of the same, sweet, yeasty, lots of pale malts, some toasted grain, spice. A few sugar cookies thrown into the barrel. Touch of lemon spritz. Watery-thin body, clean, slightly dry end. Easy-going, refreshing, pleasurable. tiffanya (45) - Federal Way, Washington, USA - MAY 6, 2008
Sampled 01.14.08 - afternoon.
Served cold out of the refrigerator (~44°F) and poured into wine glass. Lovely golden color. Small head. Spotty lacing.
Malty nose with hint of spice.
Sweet, malty flavor, which is reminiscent of cookie dough and sweet bready goodness. Medium mouth-feel.
Kept bottle out to allow beer to naturally warm toward room temperature. The beer had a yummy sweet cookie flavor when it reached room temperature.
Very nice sessionable winter release. Consider starting this beer at room temperature.

UPDATED: JAN 5, 2009 Clear gold tinted amber slightly. With the second pour came some haze and some suspended protein. Towering proper head crept over the rim of the glass and condensed quickly. Sweet aroma like a classic lager but lacks the cream corn aroma I hate, lightly toasted rye in there as well. This hit me very nicely. Clean malty flavor, easy sugary finish. Fresh flavors and light overall, lasting complexity, clean finish. MoritzF (10199) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - NOV 23, 2005
(swing top bottle) Hazy orange colour with a foamy yellow medium head. Yeasty and sweet malty nose, slightly grainy. Smooth moderately carbonated mouthfeel, sweet and worty malty taste, slightly toasted and yeasty. Light bitter herbal hoppy and malty finish. Quite good.
