Such a great idea that I'm surprised more brewers have not picked up on rewarding excellent home brewers by bottling and distributing their creations. Poured into a standard pint...

A: Pours a very dark ruby brown, much like the other Longshot beer I had the other night, Derf's Secret Alt. These beers look nearly identical. Dark and slightly cloudy tobacco sunburst tones. Two fingers of light cream head sift down to a half finger. Really nice, finely beaded lacing down the sides of the glass. Very pretty beer here.

S: Hints of banana, clove, and apple. Lots of grainy notes and touches of bready malt.

T: Lots of roasted biscuit, traces of cherry and grape, some banana. Malt and grains take most of center stage here.

M: Medium bodied with moderate carbonation, but there's this slightly cloying, sweet astringency that comes out in the mid and kinda quashes the finish.

O: This is pretty good, my first experience with this particular style. Very strong malt and grain presence when compared to its cousin, the Dunkelweizen. The roasted and bready notes blend pretty well with the spice and fruit flavors I typically associate with dunkels. (1,155 characters)

By far the best Longshot this year.

Copper with a sandy tan head. Fair retention and lace.

Nutty aroma with a little earthy hop and wet stick. Some toffee as it warms.

Bread crust malt with light toffee sweetness and mild hop spice for balance. Clean and earthy.

Nice. (276 characters)

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Sam Adams pint.

A: Pours a translucent, dark copper color with 1/2 finger of pale tan head. Some retention and lace.

S: Sweet malt, bit of tea, some light hay.

T: Leads with sweet tea and spice, then sweetness fades in the middle and caramel malt on the finish. Dark fruits emerge as the beer warms.

M: Medium body with a healthy dose of oil.

O: Very drinkable with nice complexity. I wouldn't mind seeing this one come back again. (484 characters)
