Smells malty. Tastes quite smooth and malty. The flavor is quite good! The palate is evenly balanced and bold without being overbearing. Just very good and nice. Not over the top, but very pleasant.

Nice orange color, decent head. Smells very bready and the taste follows suit. This reminds me of a marzen and I was quite surprised by ho much I enjoyed this beer. Of all the Big River beers this was probably the best one I had the chance to sample.
Serving type: on-tap

UPDATED: AUG 16, 2003 A good beer especially for something found at a minor league baseball game. Appearance is orangish. Aroma is malty and fruity. Flavor has a nice malt kick with a slightly fruity taste, maybe apricots and oranges, and some hop presence. Mouthfeel is quite nice, creamy and smooth, with a nice bite. Much better than I expected.

Draft... Disney Boardwalk location... Clear, deep amber lager with a small, fizzy, white head. Caramel aroma with earthy and spicy notes. Malty flavor, but well-balanced with good bitterness. Medium-bodied and creamy with lively carbonation. Coarse, lightly bitter finish.
