Dark amber pour with very thin layer of offwhite head and light lacing. Slightly roasted aroma, some carmel, grain, metallics and cream. Overall on the sweet side and very euro. Average carbonation, lighter mouthfeel and sour somewhat filmy finish. Nice carmel and bready malt flavor, very earthy, slightly floral, roasty chocolate that’s very evenly blended with euro metallic hops, a little melon too. Great amber with german flare.

12oz bottle. Pours amber, off white head. Carmel aroma, taste is sweet clear carmel malt, nice finish. Overall a solid beer. Frank (4236) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 30, 2014
This is an amber in the old American craftbrew style. To me, this means it is a malty beer and not just a slightly darker APA. All of these beer styles are great, it is just my wont to classify things. Ignore me if you wish. This one in particular has a nice copper color to it and a small head that nonetheless leaves a good bit of lace behind. The nose has a lightly floral note which seems to come from hops but the flavor is all about the malt. There is a solid caramel and toffee backbone and just a small amount of sweetness. The carbonation is crisp across the tongue and there is just a touch of earthy hop bitterness in the finish which serves to accent the malt. This is a nicely put together beer and a good example of the style. charule (2298) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 16, 2014

Bottle from New Glarus brewery. Nice bready aromas and flavors. Soft bitter finish. Not bad. Dragonfly1 (500) - Colorado, USA - MAR 12, 2014
From Mars... Dark copper pour, nice aromas of bock-like spice and sweet caramel, even a dusting of cocoa powder. More cinnamon spice right away, the middle is all lightly toasted malts, and a finish of very light pine hop. Just a touch too sweet still in the finish, but otherwise solid.
