12 oz bottle-amber color w/no head. Roasted malt aroma. Flavors of burnt malt, grass & hay, & bitter hops. The hop aftertaste does not help this beer @ all, really just kind of muddles it up. Long burnt malt finish...didn’t think too much of this one! redlem (1306) - Ohio, USA - OCT 20, 2007
Not very good and somewhat of a disappointment. Light bodied, low watery aroma. Slight malt taste, minimal caramel. Lots of carbonation and very macro-like. One of the bottom fest beers I have tried. JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - NOV 9, 2007
A severely disappointing octoberfest. Pours orange/brown. Aroma of caramel and fall spices was promising. Taste is dry, flavorless water. Terrible really. DukeBrewDevil (732) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - FEB 25, 2008
Bottle, and a rather old one at that. A rich red color with minimal head. Smells like caramel and malts. The taste is overpowered by malt and it left my mouth wanting a good rinse. This wasn’t very good at all, but I guess that’s what I get for buying the $1/bottle past-prime seasonal. cheap (6202) - CHINA - SEP 12, 2007
Slight candy aroma. Colored like iced tea. Comes on pretty bitter for a fest. Similar in behavior to many average malt liquors. Nice carbonation. Fairly bitter and insensitive, like many ales. Pilsner and alky metallic finish, hangs for a while. Don’t think this and Hacker belong in the same league.
