Canned. Poured clear, lighter amber with a short-lived off-white head.. decent color, but not enough of a cap. The aroma picked up sweet bready malts with a hint of cocoa with fresh earthy hoppage around.. light, complementary roast to it.. very solid example of the style. The flavor found bready and semi-sweet chocolate malts at the core, with prickly carbonation and cocoa bitterness around.. finished dry with some residual sugars and roast. Lighter-bodied and dry on the palate with a fine mouthfeel for a dunkel.. very, very drinkable. dmac (6459) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - MAY 20, 2011
12 oz can from Jonathan Ron Brielle. Poured a decent looking clear orange body with some clinging bubbles and a smaller foamy white head. Aroma is all malts at first and smells almost like a BMC but then with some warming notes of grape, raisin and glue. Thine bodied withn light carboantion and not much of an aftertaste. Flavor is almost nonexistant, a slight hint of malts and dry grassy hops. If it wasn’t for the decent color on this beer it could almost be a BMC. bobman006 (339) - New Jersey, USA - APR 24, 2011

on tap at brewpub. trans amber with thin white head. Nose is diacetyl, light tea and gravel. Flavor is more butter, moderate sugar, more tea, very little dryness or bitterness in frothy, effervescent body Thorpe429 (5122) - , Illinois, USA - APR 22, 2011
Can thanks to ChrisPro as part of Blind BIF Round 4. Served in a tulip.
Pours a moderate brown color with a single-finger white head that doesn’t stick around very long and does not leave behind much other than a few spots of lacing. The nose is comprised mostly of sweet malt along with a bit of caramel. Some hops in the background. Something quite odd about it. This continues into the taste, which is a bit too sweet without much of anything other than mild hops to carry it through. Body is light with moderate carbonation. Butter starts to come through as it warms. Probably not something I’d drink again, but who doesn’t love a good canned beer?

Clear copper color with no head. Aroma of bread, fruit, and nuts. Sweet banana flavor with bread, nuts, and a hint of caramel. Decent beer. jsmerig (1667) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 22, 2011
Malt, bready and nutty aromas abound in this lager that pours a deep brown with a rich thick off white head. Very sweet start to finish with a subtle offset of hop character. Pleasant maple syrup like aftertaste. douglas88 (9629) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 24, 2010
Can from Barley’s and Hops. Pours a dark brown color with a medium grey head. A nice light nutty and caramel malt nose. The flavor is very good; smooth, rich toast, light coffee, fruity, caramel, very good. jgb9348 (6480) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - NOV 30, 2010
Hazy brown coloured body with a ridiculously large, exploding, tan head that looks like soda and doesn’t stop with carbonation - at all. Aroma of pale malt, caramel, a touch of pit fruits and a lot of cardboard. Medium-bodied; Assertive malt and caramel sweetness up front with some light nuts and a lot of cardboardie funkiness on the back end. Aftertaste has some light sugars, but mainly an odd sweet, nutty taste. Overall, not such a great beer and the overkill on carbonation just makes it plain bad. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Oliver’s Beverage in Albany, New York on 04-September-2010, sampled at home in Washington on 30-November-2010.
