The beer departs the 12-ounce brown bottle a deep amber color with a portly frothy light tan head and the residual lace a covering sheet upon the glass. Nose is crisp sweet malt, fresh and pleasing to the senses, start is slightly sweet with the grain profile adequate, top is light to medium in feel. Finish is briskly acidic with the hops delightfully spicy and the aftertaste dry, a fine drinking beer.

Amber in color, off white head. Biscuity malts, some lighter hops, a little toasty as well. A little to thin I thought, but easy to drink. Decent. boto (2250) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - SEP 21, 2004
12oz. bottle: This beer comes out of the bottle a somewhat orangish color. But the head: was it huge. I even had this beer foaming out of the bottle after opening. All of the examples in the sixer were the same. The aroma is somewhat sweet, with notes of caramel and nuts. A somewhat smokey/musty quality to it also. The taste is good: Sweet caramel malt and a little nutty. Good once the head died down. egajdzis (6625) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 20, 2004
Poured a hazy orange copper color with a small off white head and very light lacing on the glass. Sweet and malty, nutty aroma. Taste also was sweet malt, more caramel and nuts, and light carbonation. hurleymanvw (101) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - SEP 15, 2004

Bottle. Orange and clear with a white head. Clean malty aroma. Flavor is malty, but thin. A little blande. Malt flavor fades quickly. bubbleflubber (2228) - Swannanoa, North Carolina, USA - AUG 31, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 29, 2006 A good session beer. Healty carbonation with a large head. Nice caramel aroma. Copper in the mouth with caramel malt and fruit hues. Dry, thin finish. Not extremely complex, but decent for Oktoberfest! ross (2146) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - AUG 8, 2004
pours amber colored with a white head. smell like heinken with some added sweetness to it. taste is smooth and has a little fruity flavor to it. finish is good, leaves you licking your lips. actually this beer is pretty underrated imo. not bad at all JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUN 13, 2004
Copper color, nice fluffy head leaves a clean glass. The caramel sweetness is in perfect balance. Light on the tongue. Crisp and decent.
