A copper color with a moderate head. Aroma is faint malt. Flavor is very malty with a hint of caramel and nuts. Some citrus fruit is present. The aftertaste is slightly bitter. Not a bad beer.

On draft as their ’special’ beer when I was there. Nice malty flavor and aroma, this was one of their better brews.

boto (2103) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - FEB 29, 2008
Draught in Chattanooga: This one pours with a small white head that dropped off almost immediately and left no lacing. It is an absolutely clear amber color. The aroma is a little light, although pleasant. Just hints of some toffee, malt, roastiness and earthiness. The taste is good. It had just a touch of sweetness to it. Pretty good balance with a hint of bitterness on the finish. No bad, it will appeal to many, but is rather non-descript.

NachlamSie (3294) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 30, 2009
On tap at Chattanooga. Pours quite red with a good white head. The aroma is very woody with bicuity notes and something like damp basement. There is a surprising level of European hop bite in the flavor. It’s very woody with a pleasing dry finish. Hints of apples and bread are noted. This is a very crisp, clean beer. This delivers in the way I’d hope a typical lager to. It’s not bad at all.

yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - MAR 9, 2007
UPDATED: APR 24, 2007 Pint at the Seven Bridges Brewpub in Jacksonville. Had this on the eve of their party to introduce it, with some of the proceeds going to charity. This beer poured clear amber orange with a white head that soon dissipated. It was an honest, straight-up beer. Very drinkable, and very forgetable. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing to make it special or memorable. a good Irish Red, but boring.
