On ok ale, it looked good, tasted good, but not great. I’m not complaining, its a decent brew, I’d buy it again at a good price. jasonp (1581) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - SEP 26, 2004
Pours a classic amber with an ample off-white head. Aroma is of floral hops and malt. Taste is moderately sweet with notes of caramel, toasty malts and spicy hops. Nice bitter aftertaste. Mouthfeel is very full, round and creamy - just perfect. Good lacing and head retention. Overall a very well balanced, satisfying brew. The only downside is that although the flavor is good, it is kind of boring and doesn’t really stand out. elnadeau (786) - Laguna Niguel, California, USA - SEP 14, 2004
Copper color with a decent sized head, aroma is hops on top of sweet malt. Good body, flavor is malty, perhaps some nuttiness, finish is hoppy, spicy bitter. Not bad, drinkable but lacking character. walleye (1102) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - SEP 8, 2004

Pours deep amber/brown color. Head is off-white. Aroma seems to be kind of malty, with a little hop smell as well. Predominant flavor is a roasted maltiness. Not much hops going on. Flavor also has a spicy/nut flavor. Pretty good.

Clear coppery appearance, decent haed formation. Creamy malt aroma, mild hop spice. Smooth mouthfeel, sweet malt, mildly chocolaty, gentle hop spice, decent amount of bitterness and bite in the second half. Easily drinkable. jtw (1165) - farmington, Michigan, USA - JUL 5, 2004
light amber color, lively carbonation. aroma mostly of malt, with some honey and hops sourness in there too. nothing memorable about this beer, some spiciness but also staleness in the hops. worth $5 for a sixpack, but no more. DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 12, 2004
Reddish orange color, light white head. Strong aroma, hops, grapefruit, bread and honey. Unusual flavor! Medium body, malty with slight hop bite, sugary, resembles an amber crossed with a tripel. Chewy. Started out strong but the more I drank the less I liked. Strange, but good(?). ClarkVV (6839) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 9, 2004
UPDATED: APR 23, 2004 Says from Steinhaus Brewery in New Ulm, MN. Weird. anyways 2004 bottle. Pours a nice robust copper-orange. Clear and filtered. Big light straw colored head. Smells lightly of wet barley and maybe a hint of hops. Begins with a medium-full flavor that is wet, surprisingly flavorful and mostly malty (honey, buttered bread). Mouthfeel is fairly creamy with some dryness coming from the barley and hops. Hops add a good level of spiciness. The flavors won't knock your socks off, but they are all detectable and in a good balance. A great session ale and awesome for the price. JohnC (3008) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - FEB 8, 2004
well, at 75 cents/bottle, what the heck? It is amber with a musty aroma. There's not much flavor behind it, iether.
