Deep amber pour. Soft chewy sweet malt aroma. A touch of minerally character. Light caramel and toffee flavour. Clean and chewy with a bit of minerally astringency on the back. Kind of misses for me. 3fourths (9341) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2007
5 oz sample at the brewery. I figured I’d give this a shot on the off chance it was an altbier or vienna. No such luck. The second I took a sip I knew it was included in the dreaded American Dark Lager (aka Michelob knock-off) style. Has a tawny brown and copper colored body, perfectly clear, but with a nise sized tan head. Flavor up front it a little buttery, with some sour grains over the middle and into the finish, turning more towards soggy cereal grains as it progresses. Has the distinct chewiness of Munich malt throughout, with a slight maple sweetness as well, turning more bitter and husky in the finish. Close to a brown ale, flavor-wise, actually.

Sample at the brewpub. Clear amber pour with a thin off-white head. Malty aroma with caramel and hints of nut. Caramel malt flavor with some slight hop in the finish to dry it out. Not bad. FROTHINGSLOSH (7796) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2007 Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a darkish amber color with a khaki head. The aroma was sweet, tangy and malty. The flavor was very malty, slightly nutty and a bit roasty. There was a lightly tangy finish.
