3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crisp dark brown coloured body with an almost perfect, three centimetre tall tan head that shows nicely. Aroma of nuts, earth, caramel, brown sugar and a touch of light funky yeast - nice. Medium-bodied; Assertive nutty flavour with some walnuts and cashews noticeable and an almost fruity finish with a pleasant sweetness. Aftertaste shows a little depth from the caramel and a lot of nuts with only a touch of yeastiness and funk at the tail end. Overall, a decent nut brown and perhaps one of the better and most complex ones i’ve had in a while, but that still unfortunately doesn’t make this a beer worth searching out to find. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 08-November-2014 for US$2,25 sampled at home in Washington on 15-March-2015.

Can. The color is a thin, clear reddish brown with off white head and lace. The aroma is true to the style, malty, nutty. The flavor is thin malty, brown sugar, nuts. The finish has a slight resin bittering.

I missed the "lager" part on the can and thought I was getting a brown ale. Horribly disappointing there. This is a mild taste of German yeast and powdered chocolate with a really bad aftertaste. Not at all good.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Canned. Nose nutty, heavily malty with light spice and earth, deep dark toffee and faint hops. Really earthy and deserving of the name. Pours a beautiful mahogany gradient down to chestnut, very slow carbonation with a dense and rocky beige head. Taste semi-sweet but seems dry at first, touch of tartness overshadowing light bitterness, but above-average maltiness with a hint of nuts and fruit that melts into the background. Clean medium-full body with just a touch of alcohol.

(backlog recollected in abstinence) Tap pitcher, shared at Pork Slope, Brooklyn 09/2012.Thanks to Steve and John for taking us here!). Pretty full-flavoured Dunkel/cream ale crossover with a mellow light malt but great assertive, spicy and UK hop profile that went very well with the delicously dripping swineries on offer. Apparently a Pork Slope mainstay, as it is still on their tap menu after 1,5yrs.

Bue à la pression. Couleur ambrée. Arômes d’agrumes avec une pointe d’amertume très légère. Peu d’acidité. Je n’ai pas senti la noisette.

Sample at Fette Sau. Clear pale brown color with a thin beige head that recedes quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, nuts and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of toasted malt, nuts and mild earthy hops. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.
