3.98/5 rDev -0.3%
Really cool looking bottle purchased at Beers of the World in Henrietta, NY.
Pours a copper brown, with a one inch head, and a little bit of lacing.
Smells like grass, toasted bread, caramel, and toffee.
A pretty good hop profile on this one, must be relatively fresh. Some herbal and grassy hop bitterness that lingers for a bit, with delicious crackery toasty bready malt flavor, along with dry caramel.
Medium bodied, pretty full for the ABV at 4.7%. Low carbonation, crisp, clean mouthfeel.
This one of the best German breweries that you can get in the US. Awesome stuff.

3.85/5 rDev -3.5%
The beer comes in a hazy dark ruby with lots of particulate.
The aroma has pilsner quality of floral, grassiness, a toasted malt, caramel and candy sweetness, lager yeast.
The flavor follows with a slight caramel and candy sweetness in the front. A pilsner and lager yeast quality. Floral hops. Then onto a strong bitterness for the style of grassiness, earthiness, almost pine, and a big herbal and tea leaf quality.
A pretty good beer for the style, but because of the bitterness and hops, I suspect that my 10 month old bottle had some oxidation, so try to get this beer fresher than that.

4.19/5 rDev +5%
Pours very dark brown, with a nice beige head forming up. From the look of it, it will be a malty, compact, dense drink.
Smells of roasted malts, dark spices and green and dry grass.
Roasted malts, somewhat sweet with a dark fruitiness background (low raisin, dry figs). Hint of apricot also, and some low citrus (a mild lemon zest that you usually get in a lager also). Yeasts are hard at work, earthy, spicy, woody. A floral note, but a bigger herbal note, with pine, sage, dry cones. Hops are big and clear, and create a hugely intense dry bitterness, enhanced by the roast, really rough. The bitterness and an alcoholic warmth linger for a very long time in the aftertaste, but not in a bad way.
A little fizz, but the beer is mostly creamy, dense and robust.
A great intensity of aromas, beautiful balance between malts, yeasts and hops creating a strong, very "German" bitterness that few beers achieve.
