It pours with a foamy head and a clear dark orange body. Slightly sweet, with a nice aftertaste. Heavy malt character without a lot of hops. boto (2267) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - MAY 19, 2002
No hops taste and very little carbonation, but still seemed very 'chewey'. Lots of malt character. I agree with their slogan: 'Make mine a Smutty!' Merc (313) - Pullman, Washington, USA - MAY 16, 2002
Nice palate, hardly carbonated at all, slightly creamy. Very malty with a lot of flavour. Well balanced despite no obvious hops. Gregory (357) - Pullman, Washington, USA - MAY 16, 2002
Pretty good beer. Nice inbetween winter and spring beer. Very malty, and rich. Slight hops flavor in the finish to balance it out. Decent palate, nice color. gwfrankpsu (231) - McKinleyville, California, USA - MAY 15, 2002
Wonderful malty, chewy Maibock. Nice alcohol at the end, this is a very good spring or any time of the year beer.

The beer pours with a deep bronze color and a sandy off-white head color. Has a big malty sweet nose and a touch of alcohol in the aroma as well. The malt has an aroma of a chocolate milkshake. Very smooth, full, chewy and alightly bitter mouthfeel. Slightly sharp alcohol tinge on the back of the throat. A wonderful Maibock, make mine a Smutty! Steak (124) - New York, USA - APR 9, 2002
So very very malty. Starts over with a gorgeous, pretty clear, ruby-tinted color. The aroma was made me think of some kind of fruity bread (raspberry maybe), but left me a little curious. Malts come on stong with initial flavor and dominate the aftertaste as well. Hops, an carbonation, were hardly noticeable. It does get a bit alcoholic as it warms, but not that bad. It's definately a beer one needs to enjoy, taking their time. Nice stuff. turtlehead (111) - Nottingham, New Hampshire, USA - APR 1, 2002
This beer presents a sweet nutty/malty nose. A full bodied beer with a decent balance of chocolate malt and finishing hops. A pleasant beer that will make you feel warm. Cheers!
