UPDATED: APR 29, 2012 Aroma is fruit and yeast. Pours amber with a white head. Taste is malt, grain and yeast. Good beer. badbeer (434) - Iowa, USA - JUL 5, 2008
Pours a nice dark amber color, transparent, and had a white head; but the fact the head left with no trace brings it down. Smell of caramel and toffee. Sweet caramel greets your taste buds, paired with some toffee and a soft, earthy bitterness to even things out. Really well balanced taste. Higher carbonation than average, medium bodied. After finishing up a test, this one hit the spot nicely. I’d have another, but unfortunately this is the only one I had.
Worth a try. BeerZack (432) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 4, 2008
Dark copper color with minimal head.
Sweet caramel, marzipan, some toffee, fig, hint of spice (nutmeg).
Pleasantly surprising flavor, much more subdued sweetness than the nose shows. Some mild caramel sweetness balanced by some dry roasted barley notes and just enough hop bitterness to almost cleanse the palate.
Medium-heavy carbonation, a bit stinging, medium body. Pretty drinkable. skoll (420) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - SEP 23, 2012
An amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has primary notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt and caramel as well as lighter notes of wheat bread, alcohol, and bread - reminds me of a bock. love the maltyness of this brew iabeerguy (392) - Iowa, USA - JAN 29, 2010
This beer pours a nice red color with a small head. Aroma of malts, hops, fruit, and caramel. Nice lacing around my glass. Flavor is of malts and caramel. Finish is nice and smooth. A very enjoyable beer.

Aroma of sweet malt. Very nice amber color. Tan head quickly faded away. Sweet, biscuity, slightly nutty flavor. Smooth finish. Easy to drink and enjoy. Gooney (389) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 16, 2010
12 oz bottle - Nice orange/amber color with lively carbonation. Not much in the way of aroma. Light bitterness with a strong malty flavor. Texture is a bit oily. Overall, it’s a pretty good beer. I’ll have another. drywallman (367) - Lake in the Hills, Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2005
This one was from a batch mfg. in 6/05, so it is fairly fresh. Poured with a soapy head that lasted for a while, and had a dark orange opaque body. It was sweet with light caramel malt, and just enough hops presence to balance. Really heavier on the sweet malt. The body was what was expected of a lager. Overall a good session brew.

Bottle, thanks to iowaherkeye. Poured a clear amber color with a thick white head. Nice malty aroma, crisp malty flavor with a little bit of back end bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and a clean finish. Nice amber, but nothing to write home about. bigcat03 (336) - Columbus, Nebraska, USA - JUN 30, 2016
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2016 Bottle into a shaker. Pours copper with a small and quickly dissipating white head. Very little aroma with just a hint of malt. A nice toasted malt and biscuit taste throughout. Good medium body and carbonation. A nice amber but nothing amazing.
