I first had this "Old Beer" in D-Town. I believe it was a special offering after they expanded the brewery; for sure, they brewed it for their 10th birthday. Recently, I bought a growler at Kennett Square, and I poured into a pint glass. There’s a slight, sweet malt nose. Nice amber coloring with a white head (very similar to their Festbier). Expertly balanced with a strong malt presence and a bitter after bite. Has a heavy feel being a lager, but it’s easy going down at 5%. Cheers! Darkmagus82 (2302) - - SEP 23, 2014

Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is served a lighter copper-deep amber color with a one finger white head. The head fades relatively quickly leaving a very light level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is lighter overall, but has notes of a lightly toasted bread and a bit of a herbal hop and a light sweetness of caramel.
Taste – The taste is very much as would be expected from the nose. It starts with a lightly roasted bready flavor mixed with a bit of caramel sweetness. The sweetness fades a bit as the taste moves on all while a herbal and slightly grassy hop taste comes to the tongue. These flavors are joined by some more light earthy flavors, to in the end, leave a rather light and crisp flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather light and thin with a carbonation level that is rather average. The thinner body and moderate carbonation are good for the lighter flavors and create a very crisp and easy drinking brew.
Overall – More on the refreshing side, but a little bit low in the flavor profile which all in all makes for a nice easy drinking session brew. cheap (5860) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2013

Draft at the brew pub. Pours clear copper with a small white head. The aroma Is very malty with mostly caramel, maybe a light smoke. The taste is lightly sweet and lightly malty as well. There is a slight hopliness. This is good but sticke and double sticke set a crazy expectation for the style. Travlr (24826) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - FEB 18, 2013
