COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our full bodied amber colored lager is a result of combining our fine Pils malt with more darkly roasted malt to brew what has become our most popular beer. Slightly more hoppy than our other beers with a very clean and crisp finish. This beer is hard to put down.

Ibrew2or3 (8159) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 12, 2011
Can courtesy of Utah legend douglas88. It pours clear copper with off white head. The aroma is grainy malts, 7 grain bread, biscuit, spicy hops and a touch lemon like. The taste starts with semi bright notes of spicy hops, a bit of rosted malts and earthiness. It then picks up a touch of fruity esteriness as well as bready to grainy to near nutty malts.

Velkyal (320) - Gordonsville, Virginia, USA - NOV 23, 2011
From a can. Pours a light amber with a firm white head. The aroma is like walking through an alpine meadow in the height of summer, with some honey notes in the background. Tastewise, a smooth pilsner malt dollop of sweetness balanced with a touch of nuts and toast, with a gentle bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied, very easy drinking, all round good beer!

Golden yellow pour with white head. Aroma of sour corn and sugar. Light maltiness, paper, with a decent floral bitter finish. Light bodied with good carbonation. This beer is not bad. The initial aroma kinda got me but on the third or fourth try not so bad.

Green River, UT - Ray’s Tavern - on tap. Dark golden sparkling pour, snow white head. Malty wort-like aroma. Flavor has some caramel, some nuttiness, some buttery notes in the back end. Crisp refreshing mouthfeel. Hit the spot after a morning of hiking in Utah.

For a Utah lager, this is actually quite tolerable. Reminds me of Samuel Smith’s London Ale a little.

Amber color pour with a foamy white head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, light fruit and citrus hops. Flavor is light malt and a crisp hop finish. Refreshing.

TAR (2676) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - MAY 18, 2016
Packaged on 4/14/16, consumed on 5/8/16. Golden orange. Fleeting white head settles into the wispiest collar. Pleasant nose of marmalade-kissed toast, vanilla cookie, creamed coffee, and hay dust. Trace of melanoidins is marred by hints of marzipan and fruit chews. Light tickle of loose-bubbled carbonation. Fluffy malt textures inundate the palate, backed by a gripping contrast of toasted pumpernickel bread and softer tobacco. Hint of sweet pecan accentuates the earthy medley of flavors. Subtle tartness and a slippery orangey fruitiness quickly emerge and hamper the drinkability as the body takes on a distracting limpness and sugary sweetness. A smattering of dusty melanoidins pokes through at times as the malt is thoroughly extracted. Well integrated hops show a fairly high level of oily flowery petal notes as well as an elegant and rustic tealike effect, although the sweetness is unassuaged. Rich, but wet, maltcentric finish is dabbed with an aniseed-like hoppiness and lingering spicy tobacco. I’m a bit surprised by the mediocrity of this, after having consumed several cans of the superlative pils. The malt does boast moderate depth from this having been decocted, but it’s too sweet and unclean to drink much of. Nice aroma, but that’s about it. Okay. Thanks for the can, Sledutah.
