On tap as guest beer at Legends in Richmond VA: Copper hue with a small frothy off-white head and fair lace. Vice nice aroma with hints of cookie dough, roasted malt, hazelnut, a touch of caramel, plum and orange fruits, and some spice. Sweet and lighty bitter taste initally with some fruitiness as well. The finish was crisp and bitter. Light to medium-bodied with a clean and lively mouthfeel. Very nice version of a fest beer. I enjoyed this one a lot, a break form the same old Octoberfest offerings.

Bottle - A depp amber, ruby colored beer with a thick creamy whie head. Very nice looking. Sweet malty aroma. Sweet, molasses malty flavors. Very nice beer. Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 30, 2003
Deep amber with a thick white head and good carbonation. Balanced aromas of nutty malts and herbal hops. Came off as a bold, full bodied beer that I would bet would be great with German food. Seemed similar to a Marzen with its bitterness, but without the sour aftertaste. Good balance of sweet and bitter flavors. 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 hurleymanvw (101) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - SEP 15, 2004

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.

strong carbonation. went down smooth. reminded me of drinking a soda. Taste isnt’ very distinct. not a bad beer all in all. Cletus (6355) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 23, 2008
Bottle courtesy of durhambeer. Pours brown with a thin white head. Smells of caramel, fruit, some hints of molasses. Tastes of pepper, spice, some hints of caramel and a nice dry wildflower/citrus taste as the beer warms. woodychevy (874) - - MAR 28, 2013
Had on tap at Howards pub in Ocracoke. Pours a nice amber/ orange color- white head disappates immediately. Light and refreshing on the palate- feels like a amber summer beer. Lots of sweetness from the malts- not much hoppiness or finsih to it. Pretty inoffensive- interesting that all the lighter beer drinkers in the crowd chose this from the tap list. Good crossover/ sesssion beer. Might be nice at a summer bbq instead of the usual mass produced offererings. Not bad.

Copper color, nice fluffy head leaves a clean glass. The caramel sweetness is in perfect balance. Light on the tongue. Crisp and decent.
