Tap @ Amerisports KC. Pours a dark orange appearance with an off white head. A touch nutty, light caramel aroma. Slightly tangy, mild toffee, fairly sweet flavor. One dimensional.

On tap at the brewpub, 2/20/06: Beautiful looker. Rosy and active with a decent enough head. Sweet aroma. Beer was a tad too sweet for me ... but it’s a well-balanced example of an amber lager.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Easily my favorite beer at the brewpub. The body was light amber colored with a light khaki head. The aroma was perfume like with apples and carrots. The taste was spicy with bell pepperrs and some light bread crust. This would be good for a few.

I was really surprised at this. The website describes this as a "Munchner", but it also says that one of its other beers is a Helles, and I didn't think they would have two of the same style, so I entered this as just a plain "lager". Oh well. Whatever it is, it is a surprisingly good beer--fruity and sweet in aroma and flavor, well balanced, and easy to drink (clearly not a bitter pils). Typically ambivalent brewpub carbonation and palate, and just a normal appearance. But a very nice reason to dive into this brewpub just off the highway if you're on a Minneapolis-to-Dallas driving trip like I happen to be with all too much frequency.

On tap at the brewpub. Amber in color with a big rich head. Speckled lacing. Some toasted flavor. Hoppy with a good malt content behind the hops. A sturdy little beer that I thought lies somewhere between a dunkel and a helles. This does not seem like a Vienna-style. Not toasted enough.

On tap GABF 02: Brewer listed as Amerisport. Rich malt aroma, orange colored, flat watery texture. Something about this tasted really off.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice, dark fruity aroma. Slightly dark clear amber color, with very fine carbonation and somewhat slight head. Caramelly malty flavor and a light body, refreshing and tasty. Hops do serve to balance nicely, but this beer is all about the malt. Pleasant finsh and mouthfeel. Good Marzen style beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampler @ brewpub. Completely clear reddish copper color. Aroma is light diacetyl with some caramel sweetness. The taste losses some of the diacetyl and has a good caramel lagered flavor with some light tangerine hops at the back end.
