"A true old world German Ale with a light brown color and a pleasant nose of grassy grainy aromas with slight fruity esters." ~SBC~

A - Pours a murky tan color with about a half inch of cream-colored head. Nice lacing.

S - Sort of doughy, caramel malts, slightly grassy, with hints of candied fruit.

T - There's an interesting bready almost yeasty thing going on here. Caramel, and a sharp, grassy finish.

M - It's quite chewy, with a very pleasant amount of carbonation. Not too much, but enough to give the beer a decent body.

O - I really like this one. It's very simple, but sometimes that's perfectly okay. A very worthwhile brew.
