Light brown pour with a creamy head. Aroma and taste both simpler version of the 8 and 10, with a little more light spice and yeast and less alcohol warmth. Not the masterpiece that the others are, but more refreshing and requires less concentration. A great beer to relax with.

SHANER4 (500) - Green Bay, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Poure a murky brown color with small head. Fruity with yeast, brown sugar, fruit and light chocolate flavor. Tasted almost like the 8. Would have to drink them side by side to determine the difference. Good brew !

GT (9985) - Oceanside, California, USA - NOV 20, 2008
Pours a muddy brown with a small, white head with some yeast particulate. Aroma is slightly muted but there is some grass, flowers, earthy notes, bubblegum, and yeast. Mouthfeel is effervescent with a little too much carbonation. Taste is sweet with lots of candy, brown sugar, crystal malt, and some slight sour, fruity notes. Spiciness and yeastiness throughout. Nice dry and neutral aftertaste. Excellent.

Homer321 (4848) - Melboring, Florida, USA - NOV 20, 2008
11.2 oz bottle into wide mouthed glass. smells of burnt sugars and slightly bready. rich ruby color. Incredibly smooth up front that turns sweet like caramel, slightly tart. slightl alcohol as it warms. mouthfeel is highly carbonated. Overall a good beer, but I would lend more toward a St. Bernardus.
