On tap in Amana at the Ronneburg Restaurant. Poured a rich copper color with a nice light tan head that lasted quite a while and left good lacing. Roasted malts in the nose and other aromas of carmel and slght hops. Decent mouthfeel and a solid malt flaror. Low carbonation makes this a smooth and fairly enjoyable brew.

Big thanks to Secret Santa Eve for this one! Nice coppery amber appearance, decent head fades into a ring. Very faint aroma of light malt. Pleasant biscuit flavor, with a slightly grassy and floral hop finish. Not bad at all, an enjoyable easy drinker. PattyBoy (302) - North Liberty, Iowa, USA - JUL 10, 2006
On tap. Poured a dark amber. Flavor is sweet malt, some roasts. Nothing that really makes it stand out, but it goes good with some sauerbraten. uglyblond1 (177) - Nebraska, USA - JUL 3, 2006
On tap A nice deep amber color. Light aroma. Flavor was malt, nice complex flavor although not very substantial. Not as crisp as the best but a pronounced hop flavor, good balance. Not exactly smooth, but inoffensive, drinkable without any bad aftertaste.was good with the meal, but might have been a shade too warm. Cornfield (5569) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - JUL 2, 2006
Clear amber body with a slendy, creamy beige head. Not a long lifed one. The aroma is malty and sweet, toasty with caramel and a touch of toffee. A bit thin for the style, but with a pleasantly sweet caramel taste blended neatly with lightly roasted malt. Quaffable.

Bottle. Pours a hazy dark brown color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted and produced good lacing. Light sweet roasted malt aroma. Medium body with a sticky texture. Medium sweet flavor with a moderate sweet finish of average duration. Goes well with spicy food. vyvvy (6731) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 16, 2006
Pour is dark brown with a reddish tint. Small head with absolutely no retention. Little carbonation. Aroma is light (no head to help with no aroma) - slightly sweet and roasted malt. Taste is roasted malts from the aroma with a bit of sweetness. Very light mouthfeel with no carbonation. Finish is lighty toasted malt. For something that is suppose to be an Octoberfest this is a poor representation. Not offensive, but very boring. thegreenrooster (4558) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 24, 2006
Pour is a dark red with a small white head. Aroma is lagery with a bit of caramel in there. Flavor is malty but dull all over. Really watery in the end and not a good rep of the style. oldrtybastrd (5228) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 1, 2006
Pours a nice deep amber color. Aromas of fruit/malt. Flavor has a nice clean taste, mildly hoppy with some nice malty tones. hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 1, 2006
12oz bottle. Poured a dark orange color with an averaged sized off white head. Lighter floral, caramel and grainy aromas. Tastes of caramel and a little on the fruity side. Drinkable even if it is kinda boring.
