Sample at brewpub. Comes copper with a small white head. Mild aroma of malt and spice. Taste is malt, grain, spice and a bit of hops. A bit thin. Decent.

TheDM and Hotstuff vacation brew 20. This draft brew was enjoyed at the brewery in Atlanta Georgia. This brew poured a medium sized head of mostly lasting fine to large sized light brown colored bubbles that left behind a good lace and a transparent red brown colored uncarbonated body. It had a very mild red malt aroma. The mouthfeel was thin flat, old and uncarbonated. The flavor was also thin with only a slight red malt flavor to it. It vas very one-dimensional.

Cybercat (5747) - Georgia, USA - AUG 6, 2007
It pours a beautiful transparent reddish brown. Aroma is not strong but invitingly malty and spicy. Flavor is rich and malty, with hoppy hints and a touch of cinnamon.

Aurelius (5295) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2002
A fruit-juicy, sweet aroma. Sweet, tart and clean without a whole lot of hopping. Reminded me of sloe plums that I used to eat as a kid. A bright orange-red.

hotstuff (5144) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 18, 2003
Draft at Max Lager's in downtown Atlanta. This beer had a small sized tan head with fine-large bubbles that was mostly lasting. There was no carbonation observed and the body was transparent with a red hue. The nose was malty, sweet and spicy with a light hoppy and mild spice taste to it. The mouthfeel was smooth, thin and watery. This was a light bodied beer with good lacing. This beer lacks character, flavor and it was a rather boring beer to drink and rate.

2.9
Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 20, 2010
GABF 2010 as Max Vienna. Pours a clear dull copper/ light orange with a thinning head. Aroma is diacetyl, butter, vanilla, marshmellow, toasted malts, light grass. Flavor is herbal, dusty crackery malts, toffee, biscuit, some flowery hops, with more butter and a touch of vanilla. Slight slick finish., Some off things here.

2.9
ChainGangGuy (4894) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - NOV 14, 2009
Appearance: Clear, reddish-amber body with a thin, white head. Smell: Sweet-smelling, bready aroma with some mild, fleeting hints of caramel and fruit. Taste: Sweetish, bready malt profile with a hint of caramel cubes. Minor fruitiness. Incredibly faint hop character with almost no imparted bitterness. Drying finish with a final impression of sweet breadiness. Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Lightly carbonated. Drinkability: First, the Gold was woefully undercarbonated, and now this. Again, a bump in effervescence would help this beer a great deal.
