COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our take on the maltforward fest biers of Bavaria. Extensive malt aroma and taste trials over the last two years led us in crafting this recipe, a subtly-hopped amber lager that walks the line between dry and full-bodied, not too sweet but definitely not lacking in malty goodness. Lagered on our in-house toasted oak to round out this brew’s flavor profile.

mcberko (6333) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 8, 2014
On tap at Base Camp, pours a cloudy orange with a small beige head. Aroma is very feint with not a whole lot detectable. Flavour is also quite subtle, with sweet malts and herbal notes. Pretty weak beer with not a whole lot going on here. Decent.

On tap at the brewery. Pour is hazy amber with a big cream-colored head and good lacing. Grainy, cereal, bready, grass, caramel, and raw wheaty aroma. Taste is fresh bread, rye, lightly grassy, cookie malty, and cracker with a lightly hoppy bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Decent stuff.

650ml bottle-shaped aluminum can pours copper color with a finger of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is cereal grains and caramel. Taste is a caramel and grainy malt sweetness with an earthy bitterness. An interesting dark lager that I found enjoyable and recommend to others.

Decent little take on the style. Enjoyed the toasted oak hints, but other than that it was a bit watery for me.

Sampled at the brewpub - Pours golden / dark orange with an off-white head. The aroma has toasty toffee malt, earthy English yeast and maltiness. It is still on the drier side. It has a medium body with light soft carbonation. The flavor start with fairly fruity notes, mild toasted malt and some earthiness. The finish has a distinct English yeastiness.

22 oz aluminum bottle- Pours rusty amber with a two finger head that leaves a nice rocky head with cobwebby lace. Aroma is malty sweet, spicy hops, caramel. The taste is like a hop forward amber, rich malt and dry hops, pretty basic overall, nothing offensive here though.

pdx77 (1345) - Oregon, USA - MAY 19, 2014
From aluminum bottle purchased at Base Camp. Clear amber color with a lot of tan head. Aroma is grass, biscuit, caramel, and a hint of metallic copper. Taste is definite caramel malt, sweet citrus, and bitter grass. The oak comes through toward the end, which keeps it from being too sweet. Smooth finish that is caramel with a touch of bitterness.

douglas88 (5955) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 20, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Pours a reddish copper color with a small white head. A sweet nose of caramel and toffee. The flavor is similar: light fruity malts, caramel, some sweeter toffee. Dry at times, quite drinkable.
