Bottle pour at the BevMo Holiday Beerfest held at Golden Road Brewing in Los Angeles, CA.

Pours a clear orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and caramel. Taste is much the same with a mild bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is pretty tasty and easy to drink.

This beer pours with a thick, shaving cream like head that sits on top for a very long time. 2.5 inch head settles half way in about 3 minutes, a light tan tint to the head and very rich consistent lacing down the glass during the slow settle. The color is that of a very strong southern iced tea. Very tannic in color with red hues when held to the light.

The nose is very rich as well with bready yeast being the dominant note along with vanilla and caramel, more specifically like caramelized sugar. The hops are very subtle and hardly notable to the nose.

The first impression of this beer is very classic and clean German artisan brewing. The beer is dry with great malt flavors and very subtle hops. This is not a beer for hop heads since you will not like it. However, if you are a fan of European brews and traditional German beers then this is a fantastic example of that tradition. I really like this one. I can feel the warmth of the alcohol in my stomach implying the higher ABV but it is completely masked by the flavors. This could be a dangerous beer because it is so good and drinkable you could become extremely hammered rather quickly. The mouth feel is light and smooth with lively carbonation that falls away to a slight bitter hopping that is superbly well balanced.

The flavors are rich. I let it warm a bit to really let the flavors come out. Initially sweet malt with very subtle Smokey undertones, hints of black pepper, bread, caramel, bitter herbs, and fresh mountain spring water are all there in a wonderfully balanced beer.

Overall this is an extremely good beer and I really would love to drink some more at any time.

Pours a dark ruby brown with tons of light tan head. Sticky lacing everywhere. Head doesn't dissipate much at all.
Aroma is a bit skunky. Dark fruits, freshly baked bread. Overall sweet, but not much else.
Starts a bit watery, then has a very nice easy going flavor. Lots of sweet dried cherry flavor blended with bread. Little hop bitterness briefly breaks up the sweetness.
Mouthfeel is thin and watery. Very easy to drink.

Overall a pretty good brew, but I think it wasn't as fresh as I'd liked it to be, hence the skunk smell. Great flavor and drinkability though.

Pours a brownish-red color with a thin head into my glass. Not too dark but I still think it's too light for a dunkel.

Nuts, dates and malt that borders too much on cloying. It's also light-struck to a degree thanks to the green glass.

Caramel, nut and only a dash of raisin/date upfront. Not bad. Chewy. Clean.

Lingering nuttiness dominates the back of the throat. Finishes very clean.

It wasn't what I thought at first but regardless, I like this organic example of the style!
