Bottle. Strong grainy malt and caramel aroma. Copper color with small head. Caramel and strong barley malt flavor with a mild hops finish. A very nice festbier - I really like the flavor of the malt in this beer, and it has much more body than most beers in this style.

This beer rocks.
LOTS of rich malt in the nose. The German hops give off a perfume-like aroma. Also detected prunes. Perfect, sparkling amber. Small khaki head with nice lacing. Very malty, slightly sour. Slightly thin, watery mouthfeel. Fizzy. Mohave dry, yet slightly sour in the long finish. Rich Malt lingers on the tongue for quite a while. Worth a try.

Bottle from Premier Gourmet. Thanks for the pick up IPFreely. Dark slightly orange amber body with a smallish white head and nice lacing. Slight metallic notes in the aroma, touch of earthy smokiness and malt. Flavour is on the sweet side and malty but not overpoweringly so. More notes of earthy smoke flitting about in the flavour as well, very subtle but noticable. Not a ton of hops that I can detect, but they are not really missed either. Decent medium mouthfeel. Nice, restrained quaffable session beer.
