Pleasant toasty aroma. Great amber almost copper color with weak head. Flavor mild hops with caramel and a mild, earthy malt. Well balanced, but no strong flavors. Slight honey aftertaste. Good beer for casual drinking.

12oz bottle; Aroma of bread and some fruit in the mix. Gold body with big white head. Flavor was alright mosly bitter hop but the fruit would show up now and then. Good brew could drink this while playing cards at family getogethers.

Bottle courtesy of soonah. Pours copper with a white head. Smells maly and vegetal with some tea like qualities. Tastes of sweet malt with touches of pepper and spice. Average.

thehinge (292) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - JAN 23, 2008
Grassy aroma. Honey colored pour. Nothing special going on tastewise. Slightly sour malts on the front end. Just a hint of hops in the finish.

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - AUG 9, 2008
Not a bad effort. Clear, dark brown body topped by a small beige head that leaves some scattered lace. Muted aroma has some dark toasted bread and spicy hops. Taste adds a note of faint chocolate to the dark bread and spicy hop. Unremarkable, but probably the best offering of the Spoetzl line.

A throwback to my pre-ratebeer days. Can’t say I’ve been missing this one in the intervening years. Deep amber with lightly sweet and bitter notes.

Bottle. Light copper color with a large white ehad. Nice metallic hops, really not too bad. A decent attempt, I would check on the catagory of this eer I would not consider it to be an ADL.
