Pours a dark amber with a sizeable head. Aroma of malt. Pretty good balance between malt and hops with a touch of spice at the end. A decent offering.

A very drinkable amber ale with a bit more flavor than normal...has a nice crispy hoppiness and toasty carmel flavors that makes this brew very drinkable.

Good looking beer. The body’s a deep amber with ruby highlights and it sports a thick & creamy khaki head. The aroma contains fruity, juicy malts with some fresh toast. Caramel and more fruits are present in the flavor along with a mild spiciness. A touch of earthy bitterness mellows the drink out, making it a decent, sessionable ale.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2009 Mildly hazy deep amber with a thin tan head that meets its demise fairly quickly. Aroma of heavy caramel, fruit and lightly toasted malt. Flavor is heavy on the caramel with dark fruits and not much in terms of hops though a mild bitterness does come through on the finish. A bit oily and grainy and dry on the finish.

(02-15-08 = 8-4-7-3-13)Draught at the Gasthaus. Nice dark amber color with pleasant aroma. Nothing good or bad about palate. Beer had nice flavor and I enjoyed this beer and would try it again.

On tap at Miller Park. Plastic cup, blah. Brew City, watching the Brew Crew, and there are few craft choices in the park? Sweet red malts. Decent.
