Pours a nice copper color into a tulip glass. Has a slightly sweet aroma with a bit of doughiness. Has a caramel, bready flavor with a toasty overtone. Very drinkable. mar (5415) - Dallas, Texas, USA - SEP 23, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2007 nice small head and a great golden amber color. i can smell the hops and a slight amount of the malt but it’s not too sweet. quite a great taste honestly. the hops are there but they get evened out by the malt. it’s not heavy on the palate and there’s a slight bitter taste at the end as well. vyvvy (6460) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 20, 2008
STL microfest. Pours orange / gold with a small tan head. The aroma has rich malt, full caramel and some dryness as well. Medium body that is clean, dry and crisp with light prickly carbonation. The flavor starts with grainy caramel, spiciness and a dryness that different than normal for the style. The finish is clean, crisp and short lived. A very nice maibock. hayduke (5203) - Eureka, California, USA - FEB 23, 2011
Courtesy of a trade with Strykzone. Poured from the 12 oz. bottle a rich clear amber color with a robust tan head and lots of lacing. Nose of caramel malts and lots of floral hops. Medium body and smooth clean mouthfeel. Flavor mirrors the aroma, with good balance between the malts and hops. Finish is long and lightly bitter. Good stuff. The guys make good German style beer.

Draught at the brewery. Light amber beer has thick, sturdy white head. Nose is more grainy than sweet or malty. Flavor is lightly sweet with a nice, moderate bitterness for balance. Tasty and a little rough in a good way.

12oz bottle. Clear, medium amber color, thin white head. Aroma of musty lagering. Very unique. Flavor is of toasted grains, some spicy pepper. Is it rye? Yummy. Smooth and clean. Light medium bodied. Perfect to style. theisti (4126) - Kansas, USA - MAY 4, 2009
Sample or two at the 2009 Parkville Microbrew Fest. Pour is clear copper with a smallish, thin white head. Aroma of toasty malt, and mild sugar sweetness. There is also a dustiness to it that is hard to explain. Taste is almost all about the toasted malt graininess, with only an edge of the sweetness near the back. Palate is thin, and decent carbonation. A bit one dimensional, but really super drinkable. phaleslu (10246) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2011
Sample poured from a 12 oz. bottle at St. Louis Microfest 2011. Pours a clear amber color with a fairly thick off-white head. Aroma is very nutty, with leafy, vegetal notes, toasted malts, pistachios, and grape leaves. Flavor is equally nutty, with good pistachio and peanut notes, toasted malts, brown sugar, and a little bit of mixed fruits. Light-medium bodied, with a nutty mouthfeel and dry toasty finish. Good beer. ads135 (4607) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUL 20, 2013
