Poured into a stein. Clear, medium to dark amber with slightly off-white head. Head dissipates after a few moments. Looks as though it falls within style guidelines.

Soft malty smell.

This tastes very good. Bready malts and smooth, sweet flavors. Slightly slick and a bit chewy. Hops are soft and subtle, as they should be. Body is medium with a notch toward the full side; pretty substantial for style. Finishes crisp despite the malt-forward presentation.

Very good interpretation of the style.

12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a clear deep copperish-brown with a thin soapy head. No head retention at all and also no lacing. Pretty disappointing.

Aroma is an interesting mixture of caramel, vegetables, and metal. Some apple notes too.

The flavor is a little better but still an odd mixture of what seem to be off-flavors. Caramel and fruit are more pronounced with apples figuring in even more prominently. A touch of tartness with a bit of a chalky finish.

Overall, this beer just seems a bit "off". Not sure if it is a sanitation issue or a yeast issue but there are definitely off-flavors here. Really needs to be cleaned up.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a dark copper color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of malts, bready. Taste is smooth, bready malts, touch hops, highly refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.
