COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

STORY

SphinxTX (2875) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - MAR 25, 2010
Bottle thanks to Bu11zeye. Pours a hazy amber with white head. Aroma is fruity, light nut, faint grain and faint malt. Flavor isnt much different. Mouth feel is light body and watery. Nothing I would recommend.

Roastiness right off the bat, with some toasted caramel nuttiness, needs more hops and comes off a little unbalanced.

Pours a slightly hazed orange golden color with off-white head. Spice, vanilla, and some malts on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with spice, vanilla, roast. Not bad.

Gusler (2653) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 1, 2003
The pour is a deep amber to copper color, the head prestigious in size, creamy in texture, and the leftover lace a nice fine latticework to coat the glass. Mostly malt in the nose, lightly fruit sweet, fresh and clean to the senses, the start is full of malt, and lightly sweet, top middling in mouth feel. Finish is perkily acidic, the hops pleasant to the palate, dry aftertaste, and a quite drinkable beer and at 4% ABV, something that would make a nice session beer. Ranks #700 on my current 1000 beer master list.

BREWMUSKCLES (2619) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 4, 2008
the beer is light cola sweet and somewhat earthy with a carbonation profile of half exhausted sodapop low alcohol volume is to be anticipated after tasting the brew it is a bit demonstrative but more so unremarkable sorry just not something someone with an interest or looking to develop an interest in beer would find memorable. slightly nutty... eehhh

Pretty mild beer. Watery malts, some straw flavor. Smooth and pretty forgettable.

Transfer from BA review on 3-26-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance The beer pours a nice copper color with a big and billowy off white colored head. The head has huge carbonation bubbles entrapped within, which pop over time to leave a good level of lace on the sides of the glass as the head recedes. Smell The smells is mainly of a roasted malt and a light amount of a toffee sweetness. Mixed with these are subtle aromas of a citrus hop and a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg spice. Taste The taste begins with a lighter roasted malt flavor with a touch of caramel. The caramel gets stronger more toward the middle of the taste, only to fade again slightly more toward the end. While the caramel changes in intensity the roasted malt flavor remains relatively constant throughout and creates a solid base for the brew. Toward the end, a bit of a bitter grapefruit citrus hop and floral hop flavors come to the tongue combining with the more roasted flavors of the brew to produce a lingering, lightly sweetened, and somewhat bitter roasted flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel - The body of the brew is on the thinner to average side in terms of creaminess and thickness with a carbonation level that is rather average. The thinner to average body and average carbonation are a nice compromise between the drinkability and lighter abv of the brew but yet still can uphold the roasted flavors of the beer. Overall - An easy drinking and rather flavorful brew for only a 4 % abv brew. A nice session winter style lager.

troopie (2301) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - DEC 23, 2012
Bottle. Good looking beer, pours red with thick lasting head. Aroma is caramelly. Hempy flavour in with the malt. Some pickle note in the finish. Also a bit of pepper.

Emeister84 (2298) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 13, 2014
Aromas of cinnamon, nutmeg, bran muffins, wheat bread. Amber with an orange glow, and a mostly fading off-white head. Toasty and spicy with a subtle sweetness. Light-medium bodied.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 2, 2005
Clear, amber/copper color, decent ring of beige foam above, assuredly slimming down to a miniscule size. Aroma: Very malty, coppery, plentiful yeast in the nose, with a definite coppery feel, and a hint of fruit. Taste: very mild, with little hop presence, and toffee-ish malt tones. Mouthfeel is negligible, and the body is a little less than medium. Nothing wrong with that, though, its par for course for an amber lager. Flavor isnt as full as Id like, however, and points are lost there. but it is tasty, if a bit too tinny, and extra-drinkable to be sure. For the style, its above average, but no better.
