Bottle... Poured a reddish/amber with a white head. Toasted malts and grassy aroma. Very earthy, and smooth, toasted, caramel malt flavors. Crisp lager character with low bitterness and very little hop presence. Candy qualities and sweet bready finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle thanks to riversideAK. Pours amber with minimal white head that dissipates quickly. Lively carbonation. Aroma is of malt, pine, cheap scotch, grain, and hops. Taste is of sweet hops, pine and notes of cheap scotch. Has a nice biscuity malt backbone. Starts off very bitter due to all the earthiness, but you warm up to it after a few sips. Just a drinkable beer with enough flavor to keep you interested, but nothing more.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[Bottle] Pours a really nice clear reddish copper with a small beige head. Aroma is really grainy, some sweet malt, and lager yeast. Flavor matches pretty well with a lingering sweetness on the finish. Nothing special, but not too bad either.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is very toasty with a touch of sweet caramel malts. Some crisp hoppy bitterness too. Pours reddish/copper with a thin head. The flavor is very toasty with a touch of sweetness and a super crisp hop bitterness in the finish. I really like the clean crisp bitterness in the finish. Lagers are under rated. It is not barrel aged with lacto and brett, so it cant be any good I guess...
