A mediocre brown ale. The taste was initially on the sweet side but during the glass moved to more of a bland mediocre taste. Color was a good dark brown and very rich, but the lack of head makes the appearance average at best. Like other Saint Arnold's beers it's not bad but not good, as I've said in my other reviews of their beers, it's C+,B- beer. Nothing to write home about.

Serving type: on-tap

Had this on tap at the brewery. Had a decent light brown color with a short head. Not too bad for a spring beer. Decent flavor with decent body. Not too much flavor. Goes down easy and was very nice to drink. But nothing too spectacular as I was expecting more.

First off, I have been looking for this brew for a couple of months now. I prefer a more malty ale, with a darker appearance, so I thought this would be just right for me after I fell in love with SA's Oktoberfest but was no longer able to buy it. After reading the description on Saint Arnold's webpage I set out looking and it was definitely worth the wait, and almost reminds me of the oktoberfest brew, considering that SA's oktoberfest is actually an ale.

Poured from a bottle into half-pint glass

A: A deep reddish-copper with good lacing at warmer temps. and a decent head

S: Sweet caramel malt, and slighty fruity, roasted

T: Bready up front, and if warm almost cinnamon, then goes into a caramel malty, then end with a mild hop crispness that doesn't stay on the tongue for long.

M: Medium carbonation, with a creamy head

O: My favorite brew SO FAR from Saint Arnold, and probably my favorite beer to date. It isn't bad chilled, but you get a much more "rounded" experience after it warms slightly.
