'09 vintage bottle. The pour is a hazy light amber. The aroma is boozy and much like a barleywine. The taste has sone age to it for sure, sweet and some toffee.

tap. golden with small head. strong lager with mild sweetness and light hops. kevinator (2885) - The Colony, Texas, USA - FEB 5, 2014
OK lager. Malty and grainy aromas with a mild hops presence. Clear golden color with a sustainable white head. Light palate with decent carbonation. Probably the lightest beer of theirs I’ve had with the exception of the Bohemian Pilsner. Grainy malts with a little straw and a decent bitter finish. Well blended and deceptively strong. tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - JAN 27, 2014
Tap: hazed, sunshine-gold body with a super fine-bubbled layer of creamy foam that sits on top for days, leaving a huge sheet of lacing all around the glass. Aroma is certainly lager-like; fresh grains, baked bread, crisp yeast, sharp with some spicy Noble hops in the back & a mild twinge of DMS. Taste is smooth & crisp with earthy & spicy hops, undertones of sweet baked bread, light honey, & a mild inclusion of lemon-y, citrus zest. Finishes clean, as a lager should, leaving only a slight bit of bread & yeast behind. Don’t understand the hate on this one, it’s a very nice, enjoyable lager.

Light copper pour. Sweet bread Roma and a little spice. Sweet malt, thin body, little carbonation. Hints of caramel but clean lager. Nothing crazy but easy to drink. strongpieman (1651) - Mount Airy, Maryland, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Draft. Clear yellow beer with white foamy head. Sweet aroma and taste, a little syrupy, mild lager flavors. Overall oksy crossovert (14233) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 23, 2012
The only reason that this beer is rated so poorly is probably becqause it was at winter solstice and there are a bunch of idiots with no palates that attend. A very ncie lager adn a suprisingly nice one. Light but alcoholic but not boozy. 48FanInCali (857) - California, USA - MAR 25, 2012
12oz bottle. TIPA color orangish pour with no head. Nose is sweet malt and spices. Taste is very sweet and very flat. No character but sweetness. Disappointing to say the least.

12oz Bottle. Winter Solstice 2011. 11% ABV. 12oz Bottle. Thanks Sean! I’m really curious to know how they got this beer up to 11% and kept it this pale. I’m guessing a fair amount of white malt. The aroma has a wild menagerie of mixed fermentation congeners, some friendly petting-zoo barnyard animals, others fierce angry beasts of the deep woods. The beer comes at me with a vicous attack of characteristic Kuhnhenn lactic acidity. If you handed me a sample of this blind, I would say that it was a too-sweet, too-warm, but rather meek Hefeweizen. This beer is not conjuring winter in my mind, instead, perhaps a warm bath, with some lemon-scented bubbles and shampoo that stings my eyes. Odd, indeed.
