16-oz. can 10/30/18 needed an average pour for a finger sized foamy beige head with short retention and stringy lacing. A ring remained to the end, almost.
Beautiful, clear amber-copper color with a red hue, appears amber-yellow in front of light. Fizzy little bubbles rise and support the head. Unfiltered and unpasteurized, says the label.
Dark Rye bread dough dominates the smell with ripe banana and a hard candy sweetness.
The taste begins semi-sweet from camel malt with a light hop bitterness that increases during middle and end. A bready malt richness is moved along by the ample carbonation. The finish is clean, crisp and semi-dry with a lingering hop spicy-bitterness.
Medium body, smooth almost creamy middle.
Label says this was their pilot beer with a taste of a Bavarian Dark. It does smell and taste of German malt/yeast. Easy balanced drink. A great fall beer.

Amber color and crystal clear. Modest head which leaves only a single streak and a single spot for lace.

Dry caramel (crystal malt) aroma. Some hop but only as a spice to the nose.

Good berry like presence, some residual malt sugar. The bittering hop is only present for balance. Richer body but with plenty of carbonation. The finish is balanced and pleasant providing a moderate aftertaste time wise.
