COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The rich amber color and caramel flavor of this beer are derived from the generous amount of caramel malt in our recipe, with just a dash of roasted unmalted barley for a subtle toasted flavor in the background. The sweetness, body, and mouth feel tell you that this is an all-malt beer. The finish has a balanced edge of Willamen and Casade hoppiness which cuts through the malty character, leaving a clean palate which beckons for more. Note: the terminology of "stein" refers to the appropriate drinking vessel and not to a type of beer made with hot rocks.

Good amber/red color,small off white head that managed to have a decent hangtime,and leave a little at the sides.Nice malty semi-sweet aroma with a little fruit and hops.Very nice flavor,light malt with a very decent amount of hops coming through but not over poweringly enough to make it bitter.The fruit is a nice mild grapefruit.This is almost a light version of a pale ale IMO and very drinkable,makes me wish i could get this stuff up here because i could definately go through alot of these this summer.Thanks to Jcapriotti for sending this up to me.

Not a bad little lager. Its unfiltered and cloudy, which is interesting for a lager. The head is nice and lingering and leaves a nice lace. Constant cascading bubbles catch the eye. A little watery up front, but a nice toasted malt in the back with a touch of caramel sweetness. Id really like to take this beer and punch it up with a nice spicy kick of some noble hops like saaz.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 6, 2004
Appearance: muddy bronze body, below a small, dunnish head. Aroma: a bit complex! Bitter, dark fruits mingle with caramel overtones, although the dominant aspect is dry, with a whiff of carbonation. Malt is felt prominently, and seriously kicks in once you get it up to the lips. Great texture right up front, and a very mellow mouthfeel. Little hops, but substantially malty. Thats what this beauty is all about, and it delivers a fantastic, rewarding taste all the way through. Rich, tasty, lush, warm and friendly, full in body, this is a malty masterpiece. Just a perfect lager in every respect, never, ever lacking in flavor.

Syd (921) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 24, 2004
Bottle pours an attractive deeper amber with an off white head. The aroma is malt and floral hops. The flavor has good fresh bread hints, nice citrus like hops, and sweetness. the palate is where this one scores highly, rich and coordinates well with the flavors. Overall, I'm pretty happy with this one.

radiomgb (2686) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2004
Bright copper in colour. Aroma of caramel, malt, citrusy hops, and floral. The flavour was fairly light, with some caramel, malt, and a slight sweetness. Finishes with a mild bitterness and a caramel sweetness.

envane (570) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 23, 2004
Dark amber with a white head. Aroma is malt with floral hops. Taste is malty, a little roasty. Stick, sweet finish. Slightly mteallic off-flavour, but still a good beer.

beerhugger (542) - Oshawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 20, 2004
Cheers to joeybgood for this treat. Definitely like the rich amber colour, although there was something beyond the malty floral aroma that didn't seem like it belonged. Lemony fresh flavour lingers nicely moving to a sweeter finish. Not bad.

whaleman (2178) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 6, 2004
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2005 Amber body with medium carbonation and a thin, soapy white head. Appetizing aroma of fresh caramel malt, nuts, and a hint of floral hops. Flavor is malty with a sour hop character. This is an interesting session brew.

BierBauch (784) - Cape Coral Waterfront Wonderland, Florida, USA - MAR 26, 2004
UPDATED: APR 7, 2004 12oz Bottle Brewed Nov '04 As amber as a beer could be and as clear also. A small dense head rests on top. A malty caramel aroma blended evenly with cascade hops. Crisp carbonation. Flavor is caramel malt, sweet, slight metallic. Overall a nice beer.
