This lager is a bit sweet to the taste. It was served without a head which reduced its aroma. Had decent carbination but not a memorable beer. Could be rather easy drinking with wings or ribs.

Draft at the brewpub. Yum, this was good. Kind of an amber lager with some holiday spicing. The underlying lager seemed to be pretty solid, which made this a very good bev. Thumbs up.

On tap at Barley Creek. Pours a clear, medium gold with virtually no head. Extremely light aroma of caramel and malt is barely detectable. The flavor is a bit off and Iím wondering if this beer hasnít overstayed its welcome. There is some light caramel and malt in the flavor, but there is also a distinct metallic flavor thatís telling me this beer is past its prime. Medium bodied. This is easily the poorest offering I have sampled from Barley Creek.

On tap at Barley Creek brewpub. This one has a malty sweetness which is abundant in a Speckled Hen sort of way but it has the medium-wet body of a lager and a dark-orange color. This one isnít as creamy as the BC summerfest offering. Its darker and maltier. I canít wait for this one to kick so the other BC beers can regain their space.
