Pours amber with a nice off white head. The aroma is caramel and berry fruit. The flavor is toasted with some caramel and a strong bitter burnt toast finish. I liked this one.

On tap at the Allentown location. Pours a clear amber with a small white head. Aroma of maple syrup, roasted malt, and brown sugar. Flavor of sweet malt, some roasted notes with a sweet finish. The aroma intrigued me, but in the end it was just ok and a little on the sweet side.

Draft at Allentown. Pours clear medium brown with a very thin head. Tastes like malt, dry hops, light syrupy sweetness. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like light malt and caramel.

Clear copper color with a minimal white ehad. Aroma of caramel malts and some hops. Taste was mostly caramel malts with some toasted malts and a bit of hops. Did not expect to enjoy this as much as I did.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Just like the Knuckleball I tasted earlier in my recent visit to the Brew Works in Allentown, this amber lager was a big disappointment. It poured a copper color with absoutely no head. I got a bit of toasted malt and light hops in the aroma. But the flavors were very bland and light. This beer doesn’t really have all that much to offer. I tasted some toasted malt and very light hops in the body, along with a hint of bread.

Meh - most of the beer I sampled at the Allentown location was good, but not great. This was no exception.
