Sampled from the bottle at the St. Paul Beer Fest. Pours a clear gold with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a light grass note with a hint of light fruit and a grain backbone. Flavor is mild with grass and grain and not much else.

Angenehmer malziger und leicht sirupartiger Geruch. Für ein "Alt style Lager" dann aber zu wenig Hopfenaroma und Bittere. Der Geschmack ist hauptsächlich süß und malzig und etwas kratzig im Nachtrunk.

On taip on a 26 Glacier Cruise / Whittier AK --- Clear dark amber color with a beige head cover and short strips of lace. Aroma of caramel. Taste is clear caramel malt that becomes more like toffee as it moves through a lightly carbonated swallow, followed by mild hops in a finish that is lingering only because of the fizz. A decent "normal" brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The pour is a nice mahogany with a beige head. The aroma is pumpernickel bread, earthy, spicy hops, malted barley, and a bit of caramelized sugar. The mouthfeel is firm, with a medium-to-thin body and sustained carbonation. The taste is moderately bitter, with background sweetness and a dry finish. Peppery, bready, and caramel flavors are pretty evident. A really nice, balanced, tasty session beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: clear, Amber copper color with a light head that dissapates and no real lace. Caramel, malt aroma. Dry, not sour and low bitterness. Sweet flat caramel flavor. Nice malty profile. Very clean and balanced.
Lacks a little freshness. Good flavor but slightly heavy or sweet finish due to the lack of CO2.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2015 12 oz pour from refrigerated bottled into a handled mug. Leans on dry. White and a hint of sweet orange in the nose. Light citrus and pleasant malts in the taste. Medium body. Smooth. A drinkable go-to beer. I didn?t have this under idea circumstances, however, so I?d love to come back and try it again sometime.
Update: Trying it again. Rating actually stayed the same. Amber, clear, ample carbonation, slight head. Nose is bready and a little yeasty. Medium body and crisp. Taste is still light citrus and pleasant malts. Still a good drinkable go-to.
