2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Its malty alright, and bready. Its not quite as sweet as it smells -- which is good. Mouthfeel is lacking, a little more flat than I prefer. Weird aftertaste.. a hint of copper. Not bad overall. OK.
Bottle. Deep golden beer. Clear. Tall frothy white head. The aroma is malty and estery. Almost banana-like. Nice. Medium body. Sweet malty taste. Those cute esters again. Very interesting. SanfordBrewer (1577) - Sanford, Florida, USA - DEC 15, 2009

bready hop aroma, malty T1, bready hoppy T2, warm T3, §bitter Tf, smooth & flavorful.
Pours dark golden with a fully receding off-white head. Aroma of sweet caramel and sticky bready. Taste is cloying caramel, light breadiness and cookie notes, with some umami in the background. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied, sticky with moderate carbonation. Unpleasant sweetness and caramel flavors. I wasn’t a fan of this one. RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 20, 2007
Pours a slightly clouded amber gold with a decent creme head. Nose is thick with carmalized sugar and a slight bit of cooked apples when you go deeper. Malt is there as well. Flavor is extremely sugary sweet. I get mild apples here,but more so the uncooked body of one and not the skins. Feel is okay. Low carbonation and a sticky syrupy edge to it as well. I can’t say I really appreciate this one too much. One too many things going in too far a direction.

dark yellow, big frothy head, spicy floral hop aroma, rich malt flavor, somewhat sweet, touch of unknown complexity, slightest hint of bitterness in the finish
Aroma: 6/10; Appearance: 7/10; Flavor: 5/10; Palate: 5/10; Overall: 10/20
The score was calculated based upon the notes and an old scoring system.
Light amber color with some variation from top to bottom. Bubbly white head dissipates at a medium pace. Very intriguing aroma...strong on raisins and brown sugar...much more complex than Lagers I’m accustomed to. Very sweet and sugary flavor is also high in malt and has strong hints of honey. Creamy smooth on the palate with a light aftertaste. This was an excellent lager IMO and something I would actually seek for in the future. spector (906) - Lancaster, Ohio, USA - MAR 21, 2007
Lots of sweet malt in the aroma.Pours a medium copper with a very small white head.The flavor is dominated by sweet malt and light fruit.Medium mouthfeel with a sweet finish. ABUSEDGOAT (2769) - California, USA - OCT 27, 2006
Clear golden, big head, average lacing. Aroma is bread and hints of grass. Creamy yet metallic mouthfeel. Almost graceful but slightly flawed. Solid regardless. Braudog (6763) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - AUG 13, 2006
Bottle: Musty aroma wafts off this one -- a sugary sweet elixir that would probably attract hummingbirds. The flavor is richly malty and almost corn-bready. Would go great with some heavily gravied German fare.
