On draught at the brewpub. Arrived a coppery amber with a thin, somewhat creamy white head that was gone by the second sip. Mild aroma of malt with a few notes of caramel as well. The flavor is malt with some biscuit, with the biscuit lingering well into the aftertaste. A bit abrasive on the palate. So so.

Had on draft at the brewery. Poured a nice clear light amber color with slight foamy tan head. Aroma and flavor both were very very biscuty with some caramel and mellow earthy hops. Overall, enjoyable.

Tap at the brewpub. Though I was excited to see this had a nice, reddish hue, the aroma and flavor told the real story. Aroma grainy and vaguely caramelly. Flavor very sweet with a hint of hops. Cloying and a bit astringent. Not a winner, I’m shocked I actually scored this as high as I did, but I guess I’ll go by the notes and not my memory of this one...

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear copper with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet sorghum and sugary malt. Flavor of sweet malt (although not as sweet as the aroma). Very watery and pretty awful. I thought this sounded interesting, but I was wrong. Avoid if you can. 5/4/5/3/11 (2.8/5)

Appearance: Typical lager color. Caramel brown in color with a frothy head on top. Smell: The smell was a bit hard to find. It was not unpleasant just a very muted caramel malt aroma. Taste: The taste was also a bit thin. It was grainy with a hint of sourdough bread in the finish. I can not say I really enjoyed the aftertaste but it was not bad either. I do think they use the same Bavarian lager yeast in this beer as they do in the Black Lager. It seems to be a middle of the road lager. If you are used to drinking Yuengling Light, then you will enjoy this beer (IMO). Mouthfeel: Light! Basically sums it up. Drinkability: I found this to be an appropriate session beer for a festival if you were just looking for something to drink while playing games. Hope this is helpful. Cheers!

They basically retooled the Octoberfest recipe and came out with a product which is not as dark and has more of a floral flavor and creamy texture. If it weren’t for the bubbles I saw in my plastic cup, I could have mistook this for a Pepsi as far as color os concerned. The caramel and hop flavors from Octoberfest are here but toned down and mixed with some bittersweet grassy flavors. That mixture seems somewhat off balance. I would say the creaminess is the best part.
