Sampled at GABF. Amber pour with some white head. Aroma of toasty malt, raisin, caramel. Flavor is caramelly, maybe a bit sweet. Some bread. User29624 (1683) - - SEP 19, 2009
Pours copper with a light off white/tan head. Caramel malt aroma, slightly sweet. Clean malty flavor and good balance. Decent altbier. JoeMcPhee (9427) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 19, 2009
Deep copper pour. The nose is lightly crackery and caramelly with a little bit of malty sweetness. Toasty and chewy with a bit of medium crystal malt sweetness in spite of the beer being well-attenuated. There is a kiss of lightly spicy German hops and a light breadiness as well. Good balance, although it does tend to the sweeter side of things. NobleSquirrel (3438) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2009
Draft at Brewpub. Pours a coppery amber with a fading head. Nose is a bit fruity and distant roast type character. light caramel-cocoa comes through in the taste, along with a crisp dried fruit note. Clean and clear. Pretty decent and standard. PilsnerPeter (3046) - Flushing, New York, USA - AUG 25, 2009
Tap at the brewpub: Bronzeish copper with an off white fading ring of head. Malty aroma with a mild fruity presence with some caramelized malt and a touch of raisin. Crisp mouthfeel. Has a fairly clean and malty flavor. Mild caramel meshes with a lean raisin note and toasted pale malts toward the back. A decent interpretation of the style.
