j12601 (10094) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 18, 2011
On tap for growler fills at Half Time. Pours a clear golden orange with a medium to large beige head. Very sweet caramel on the nose, lots of toast. Sweet, toast and a hint of cocoa. Rather empty, sweet and caramel filled. A touch metallic, and almost buttery smooth. Soft bitterness on finish. Better than expected, but still rather dull and not something I’d really want to be drinking much of.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JAN 28, 2010
Bottle. Pours a fizzy amber with a small yellow head that dissipates like soda. No lace. No retention. Aroma is toast, brown sugar, some chemicals. Taste is burnt toast, chemicals, old pancake syrup, artificial candies. Yuck.

alexsdad06 (9958) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 5, 2016
Bottle sample from backlog notes. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have toasted grainy malts, caramel, light earthy notes, not much to get excited about.

JoeMcPhee (9426) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2009
Cask at Rattle N Hum. Very clean nose. Soft sweet crackery malts. Nice breadiness with a firm, spicy hoppiness. Bready and slightly yeasty. The overall character is of a fresh and well-balanced lager. In contrast to most lagers, the cask really accentuates the balance in this beer. Surprisingly tasty.

blipp (8882) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 23, 2009
Cask. Pours amber with a thin head. A hint of floral spicy hops in the aroma with a touch of sweetness. The flavor has a bready malty base, and floral hops. A light earthy note as well. Very well balanced and clean tasting.

Ibrew2or3 (8508) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 21, 2010
Pours clear deep copper with white head. The aroma is caramel, lagery yeast, a touch of molasses, crystal malts and a bit of graininess around the edges. The taste is on the crisp side to start with some spicy malts and graininess and then quickly picking up sweet caramel, crystal malts and lagery yeastiness. Midway and to the finish it picks up some dry malt roastiness to help balance out the initial sweetness. Pretty nice stuff.

12oz bottle (2010) into a pint glass. The pour is clear brown with a small white head. The aroma is burnt caramel and seltzer water. The flavor is very similar.

SudsMcDuff (8296) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - MAR 16, 2010
since the regular lineups from MH have started coming out, my enthusiasm has dropped... a vienna? ok... light ruby, low head .. light maple and some caramel .. why so many local weather updates?light bitterness, but its a vienna , so who cares.. . simple.. lackluster .. has an annoying aftertaste .. . Remember that show ’My Three Sons’? It’d be funny if it was called ’My One Dad’... wait, what?

bytemesis (7981) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - APR 27, 2012
Bottle. Pours cloudy amber with minimal, quickly dissipating head. Aroma has notes of wheat and toasted malt. Taste has wheat, toasted malt, and lemon notes. Overall an easy drinker.

Bottle thanks to mar. Pours with a minimal head, clear copper body. Aroma is grassy and bready. Fizzy, bitter dry and grassy. Not great.
