pours a golden brown color with nearly no head. aroma is malty and nutty with very little hops noticeable. flavor is roasty and nutty with a light spicy hop backing. full roastiness envelopes the tongue. finish is balanced and smooth. very drinkable session beer.

Oakes (17831) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 4, 2009
Bright amber. Big malty, full bready aroma is really authentic and appetizing. Creamy body has a bready bitterness. Good stuff.

Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 2, 2009
Draught, Brick Store. Clear amber. Thick, even white head. Aroma of Munich authenticity: sweet fresh grain leaping from the glass. However, the thin body is disappointing in comparison. Finishes with a nice sweetness and is overall not bad.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JAN 5, 2009
On tap at the PDX Rogue Pub. Pours deep golden amber with a thin white head. Rich maltiness up front, doughy and a touch fruity in the finish. Soft on the palate with a balanced bitter finish. Sessionable, but a bit forgettable. I thought this was a decent helles/marzen and very drinkable, but didn’t stand out.

egajdzis (6613) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 2, 2009
Poured a dark golden color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted dough, grains, citrus fruits, and light caramel. Taste of toast, toffee, earth, light citrus, and a dry finish.

hopdog (12673) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2008
On tap at The Drafting Room in Springhouse, PA. Poured a medium amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of grains, lots of grainines, some toasted grains, and caramel. Tastes of the same toasted grains, with caramel and toffee. Thin all the way around and just all around dissapointing.

TomDecapolis (4618) - Milton, Delaware, USA - DEC 30, 2008
Tap at Drafting Room in Springhouse. Pours a translucent golden amber with a small bubbly off white head. Aroma of grainy Munich malt, toffee, vegetal and nuts. Flavor of grainy toasted malt, buttery, nuts and a touch of citrus.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 25, 2008
Tap @ Bittercreek AleHouse Boise: Pours an amber color with a light head and moderate lacing. the nose is fruity and light with an up front grape and fig note. The flavor is chewy, malty with little to no biscuit and a predominate grape and hop accent note towards the tail. Quaffable and drinkable, but nothing outstanding. A decent lager with a sweeter appeal.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 22, 2008
Thin white head over a clear purpley red. Big malty nose, toasty and peppery with a small metallic note. The taste is light malts, spicy, dry and peppery with a light sweet caramel and toffee toasted malt base
