Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours orange gold with a foamy white head. Lots of malt aroma with some clean citrus/grass accompaniment. Med body at least. Flavor is a little bready, corny, sweetish, with not all that much hop. No real heat, but the overall impression suggests near to malt liquor. Other than that impression this is pretty much decent beer. Later thought: With some time and olfactory fatigue, this beer actually gets better than decent and is quite drinkable. Up overall from 14 to 15 Tmoney99 (14501) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 20, 2011
Bottle. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted malt and fruit aroma. Medium body with a smooth thick texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet fruit and malt flavor with a medium smooth sweet finish of moderate duration. Good doppelbock.

16.9 ounce bottle from Beer Run, 12/14/13. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized foamy white head. Good head retention. Aroma of heavy corn, pale malts and some dusty notes. The taste is heavy corn, pale malts, doughy notes, the mildest bit of hops. Thin bodied, boozy. Malt liquor, basically. Sammy (12212) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 7, 2010
Sampled at Eastern Europe tasting at the Tops Tasting Room in Tempe. Light in taste, big in booze. Average mouthfeel. Mix between a malt liquor and a dopplebock. daknole (11049) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAY 5, 2010
Gold pour. White head. Malty sweet aroma with some corn and maybe some artificial fruit. Flavor is stupid sweet and tastes like someone poured equal into someones sweaty pits and then bottled it. Gross ass beer.

Wow. Brutal. Pours gold with a white head. Gross fusel alcohol and weird malty sweetness. Pretty bad. Ibrew2or3 (8614) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - DEC 2, 2011
Half liter bottle pours out clear gold with copper hues and thin white head. The mild aroma emits harmless levels of chunky cinnamon apple sauce, a thin layer of caramel and a bit of boozy heat. The taste feels a touch thin to start and delivers a mix of apple sweetness, a mild twang of yeasty tartness and then subtle caramel notes. Midway and to the finish some prune and faint cherry notes join in as well as a dash of booziness. Decent brew for what it is or isn’t. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - DEC 18, 2011
500. Pours a hazy medium amber with very little motion of presence to the head. Big cabbage and artichoke funk a dunk on the nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Cabbage and artichokes again on the mid palate. A little basement in the finish. Drain pour. CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JAN 18, 2011
Bottle: Pours a clear deep golden with a thin ring of white head. Has a sweet toasty caramel malty nose with some light fruity esters and a touch of lager yeastiness. Starts with average fullness and decent light caramel malty sweetness with some malt-liquor characteristics, but overall fairly clean tasting, just a little thin and warming. An ok heller bock and not bad for the price. wlajwl (6815) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 5, 2012
Aroma is caramel/toffee and a strong hint of sweetness. The flavor is toffee, big sweentess and a mildly alcoholic finish. One-dimensional but decent enough.
