The beer pours a crystal clear deep copper color, the head is paltry in size, and vanishes leaving only microscopically small bits of lace. Nose is malt, nutty sweet, and hints of caramel. Front is malt and cloyingly sweet, top skimpy, the finish inconsequentially acidic, sufficiently hopped, dry aftertaste. A drinkable beer, that is pleasant enough, but nothing to “Write Home About”. Ranks #876 on my current 1000 beer master list.

This is a nice cool weather beer. it has a sweetish alcoholic flavor mixed with caramel malt notes. The head dissappears quickly. It is not a hoppy beer. It is balanced with Hallertauer hops to give it a German ale character. If you found Snow Cap to be too bitter and hoppy for you last winter, Broken Rake makes a nice substitute. Stock up on this one now becuase it is available in the fall only.
