Bottle - Hoppy, dry, nutty flavor to this one. For me this is one of my go to favorite beers to drink on a regular basis. I love the slight bit and flavor on this one.

Caramel and stale fruit. Some burned sugar. At least it looked brown... Tried this at the DC beerfest with Jess, Mark, and Matt in 2014.

Bierkrug (2130) - - MAY 21, 2014
355 ml bottle in Vienna, VA. Pours a dark brown with a creamy tan head that lingers. Aroma is molasses, caramel, bread, malty notes. Its pretty light, and the taste is exactly like the aroma, very drinkable, but nothing really stands out to me about this beer. Palate is smooth.

Pint on tap at Norfolk Tap Room. Clear darkish copper brown with a small topping of cream. Mild aroma of dry cocoa, toast and a touch of citrus. Flavor is toasted nut, caramel, cocoa and a touch of citrus. Light-medium body has medium carbonation and a nice balance.

Nice brown color and a relatively easy to drink brown ale. Not the most interesting or strong aroma.

solidfunk (8670) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 22, 2014
Not quite so legendary. Pours clear brown with some fizzy initial head and not much lacing. Mostly just some light hops here, cant get much of a sense of the malt here. Finishes with light sweetness. Tap at Big Board.
