3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Aroma of some toasted malt. Flavor is bready malt, somewhat light like most american lagers, but with a toasted/roasted malt aspect to it. Good twist on the typical american beer style.

6-pack from Bottle King, Wayne, NJ...bottle pours amber in color with a frothy white head...sweet grainy aroma...I see what others are saying about the watery taste/mouth feel, but the flavor is not bad overall...light malty and sweet, leaves a bit of lacing...quite refreshing, went down fast...decent drinker on a warm day.

draft- where’s the toast? All I taste is lagery sweetness. Prefer this over macro versions, but not my favorite style.

Comes off very well with a deep rich color and flavorful fragrance but seems to lose it in the taste. Slightly skunky and watery tasting.

UPDATED: DEC 26, 2007 Draft. Malt aromas of roasted and nutty and hops smell of pine and herbs with dough, smoke and dates. Fizzy white head with fair lacing and is mostly dimishing, color is a nice copper/brown. Flavor starts lightly sweet and finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is light/medium, watery, with lively carbonation and a nice dry finish. I’ve had this beer in a growler from the brewery and remember it having deeper aromas and flavors, still a nice drinking lager.

The beer pours a orange amber colour wtih a thin shortlived head which fizzes down to some decent lacing. The aroma is nutty with notes of fresh hops. The flavour has strong fresh hop notes with light malt sweetness which lends some subtle caramel flavours. The mouthfeel of the beer however needs some serious improvements, the beer is watery from start to finish with the only saving grace being a decent hoppy dry finish. If you like this beer then see if you can get your hands on a Brooklyn Lager, it does everything this beer does but much better. This beer on a whole is still pretty decent though.

Not a bad lager. Tastes a lot like toast that has been extra toasted. Dark amber color for a lager with not too much of an aroma some toasty breainess. flavor had some nice toast flavor, but traditional clean lager flavor with some hop bitterness, a slight bit of lemon. medium in palate with a long finish
