This loaf is great with almost any meal to take the place of dinner rolls. Delisious with a bowl of soup, or just as a snack buttered.

I liked this. It was more dense than I thought it would be but I like the flavor. I used a honey brown lager and could taste it in the bread. I will fix this again. It went well with potato soup.

Quick, easy & with a unique falvor of onions & cheese & a faint hint of beer. Hod some warm from the oven & then served it buttered & broiled with a chicken supper. Nice change of pace.

This is a really good bread. I like it toasted, spread with butter, and dipped in marinara sauce...mmm, great snack! Didn't have green onions, so I substituted regular onion, and I don't think it made much of a difference. I liked it because it was quick; don't have to knead or wait for it to rise.
