Thanks Rich.

I just didn't know. I sat there playing around with them for a while and just wanted some opinions. Some of the labels here are just amazing. So I thought I would try to be somewhat amazing.

Thanks for the input.

They look great but I can't figure the German text with an American Image.

Looks great, but apfelwein isn't brewed according to the reinheitsgebot, I don't think.

Hmm, I guess not. I'll Take it off. You know Edwort has it on his label as well. I went and checked after the question was raised. However the Reinheitsgebot only applies to beer does it not?

Well that part is coming off. Funny enough. I actually went and read the text of the Reinheitsgebot. So I think I will just take that off my labels. It is just marketing fluff anyways.

I agree. It seems like a confused theme, with Uncle Sam and the German text. I think you should either stick with an American theme, or consider a German icon for the mascot.

Maybe Hammered Hitler? Alcoholic Adolf?

The labels look great, though!

Ha ha That made me laugh.

Well I guess what I was shooting for is my nickname is Sloppysam, I am of German Decent but of course born in the US. So I was trying to encompass both of the nationalities. However having to explain that everytime I hand out a bottle is not good either.

Thanks for the feedback and I will probably change the labels to take the German text off.

Hammered Hitler. I am going to have to name a batch of marzen that.

That's better.

Being Hyper-critical the tails on the S and the B and uncle Sam leaning make my eye see it is off kilter.
It isn't and you probably wouldn't see it on the bottle.
