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.

TAR (2597) - 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. Iím 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 itís too sweet and unclean to drink much of. Nice aroma, but thatís about it. Okay. Thanks for the can, Sledutah.

2004 NABA Festival: Golden burgundy in color.Light head with fruity aroma. Low bitterness. Good up front taste, but too much after taste.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 6, 2004
Amber with a light head and spotty lacing. Malt and hops in the nose, very lageresque. Roasted malts, mild hops and citrus flavors. Very mellow.

UPDATED: MAR 7, 2007 Draft pint at MacCools Layton, UT. Clear and light amber color, nice spicy aroma. 1.5 finger head. Small body, slight clove-vanilla flavor with malt, and nice hop balance. Interesting beer, might seem low-bodied due to the low alcohol content.

Can pours a clear copper with a foamy white head. Scent is light malt. Taste is bready and lightly roasted. Crisp and clean.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - MAR 20, 2011
12oz can. Rating #24. Nice dark gold pour with a thin white head. Aroma is a little caramally and it has a bit of dried fruit as well, rich aroma. Nice little bite, a bit more dark dried fruit, not bad. (1508)

"Kinda surprised by this one. Not a big fan of the style but the floral hop/toasted malt balance was done well. Head to head was almost better than the pilsner..."

On tap a few weeks back in SLC. (Bayou). Color was orangeish/amber. Aroma of pale malt with a bit of earthiness and sweetness. Flavor was bready with a nice peppery hop finish. Solid for the style.

Watered down in flavor. Light aroma of yeast. Nothing real special. Mild toasty ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz can. Amber with a decent off-white head. Aroma is of caramel, malt, light nuttiness, and bread. Taste is the same.
