This draft brew from a beer festival poured a small sized head of foamy off-white colored bubbles that were fully diminished and left behind a hazy dark yellow orange colored body. The mild aroma was malty and musty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The thick flavor contained notes of mild hops and malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again. shrubber85 (11508) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Draft. Light toffee apple malt aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet buttery caramel malt and mildly bitter hay flavor. Pretty solid Maerzen. queenholly (3623) - South Whitley, Indiana, USA - SEP 23, 2012

tap at the brewery - Pours clear amber and smells of caramel malt. It tastes of sweet, toasted caramel malt and some mild hops along with just a touch of dark fruit. It’s medium bodied and tasty.

From the tap this pours a clear golden amber with a modest off-white head with minimal lacing. The aroma is mildly sweet, toasted grains with a touch of caramel and a very slight hop bitterness. Some alcohol enteres into the flavor, the caramel is more pronounced, and the hops take on an earthy quality. Not bad.MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - SEP 30, 2007

On tap at the Backroad Fall Fest, and served in a shaker. This beer poured a clear, bright orange color with a small, frothy, off-white head that slightly lasted. Some faint lace was left behind. The aroma was made up of mild caramel, bread, and some light citrus. The flavor was caramel, bready yeast, and a touch of citrus hoppiness. The mouthfeel was light to medium-bodied with a decent dose of carbonation. A solid beer that is true to style. TheEnemy (564) - Chicago, USA - JAN 13, 2007
(Notes from October 2006.) Pours a deep fiery caramel-aburun. Thin head disssipates quickly. Fairly faint but pleasant malty caramel aroma with a bare hint of hop bitterness. Flaor is a big burst of caramel and misplaced fruity esters. Some diacetyl as well. Somewhat lacking in malt sweetness -- definitely pushes the dry end of the fest style. Thick, slightly sticky palate fits the style. Right idea that misses its mark.
