COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our take on Dusseldorfs broad style features our most complex grain bill, which produces a malty, amber beer with a lot of flavor. Saphir hops give it a spicy, noble aroma and delicious hop profile. Definitely on the hoppy side for this style of beer.

benjaminbier (45) - Oregon, USA - NOV 4, 2011
Taster at the brewery around 60F. Cant tell about the foam in the little taster glass, but its present. Lightly astringent aroma, somewhat grassy hop aroma. Color is a thin brownish grey appropriate to style. Taste is neither strongly malty nor hoppy. Body is light to moderate lacking distinct character. In some regards this is very much like authentic Altbier. It is lighter than nearly all american craft brew but darker than German lager, it is slightly maltier than said lager but nowhere near as malty as US craft brew. Difficult beer to appreciate in the US but maybe in Germany it would rate well.

On tap at St. Augustines, pours a crystal clear copper with a small white head. Aroma is very light, with toasted malt and a touch of German lager yeast. Flavour is along the same lines, with sweet cereal malt, German lager yeast, and straw. Pretty unassuming and lacking in depth, but well-constructed and drinkable. Decent.

Capa (2860) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - SEP 2, 2016
Clear brownish Amber. Sweet malts lead the way in flavor and aroma. Has a nice spicy backbone and finish. Some toasted Bready malt, too. Very enjoyable.

Near clear red liquid. Easy breezy beautiful summer beer. Not a whole lot of depth or flavor but it is easy and refreshing.

Sarlacc83 (1994) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 29, 2016
Can. 2/24/16 canning date. A: Mostly opaque brownish red with a large off-white head that quickly lapses into a ring on the outer edges of the glass. Solid lacing. N: Malt, toast, earth, and some pine up front. Lots of bread and biscuit. Bit of peppercorn to spritz it up. Grapefruit lurks far underneath but one can discern it. Hint of clove. T: Balanced between a medium light sweetness and medium light bitterness. M: Very prickly carbonation, light body, no alcohol. O: Solidly constructed beer. I cant really find much fault with it. Easy to drink and tasty.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2016 Im not that into this beer. Its kinda boring and the taste goes down a lot as it gets less cold. Cute can though.

(Can) Not too bad. Some slight bitterness, some clean, soda-like quality, but not very sweet. Fairly light, but pretty decent.

Dark amber for sure. A lot going here. Cloudy. Peppery. Lemony, sure. People say burnt toast, and I agree with them. Nutty. Toffee-y. A big party in my mouth. I have a feeling I don't what's going on here. Is very good. Very different, for me. Not a back to back kinda beer for me, but it's dee-lish! I'm going to say cloudy again. Cloudy in appearance, and it appears I'm also cloudy in judgement. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at The Victory Bar - Pours clear copper / bronze with an off-white head. The aroma has toasty bread, dry toffee and good smoothness that gives it an authentic feel. It is medium bodied with semi-sharp carbonation. The flavor starts off with mild toast, nice dark bread and some pepper. The finish has lots of dry toasted malt and more of the pepperiness. Really nice.
