White foamy full lasting head. Amber colour. Aroma is malty, fruity with peach and light floral and hoppy notes. Flavor is malty too with fruity (pear, peach) and light spicy (cloves) tones, ending in a balanced, slightly hoppy finish. Light to medium bodied.

On tap while watching some basketball at a pub. I know this is good for the style, but I still think it’s only a bit above average.

I’m not normally a lager fan as I prefer to get some flavour for my efforts. But this is worth mentioning in that regard. A decent flowery bitter flavour that lingers. After two pints I’d be looking for something else though.

Golden color out of the bottle with a foamy ivory head. Light grainy nose with some lemon notes. Crisp cracker and toast malt flavors with some lemon peel hop tones. Very flavorful, tasty beer.

On tap at a Brooklyn sports bar.
A very, very nice lager here.
In my opinion, this is superior to the "flagship" Yuengling Lager.
Pours copper with nice head and tastes like a lager should - malty but not too heavy. Taste of caramel and almonds (light). Nose is of resin with a hint of citrus.Very well done here.

Tap; Nice dark amber colour for a lager with some light malt and caramel aroma. Taste is interesting and slightly roasty. Very satisfying.

Bottle from sansburys. Dark amber on the pour. Little to no head. Malty on the nose. Reminds me of paulaner octoberfest, bready and caramelly. Obviously Vienna and/or Munich used. Little bittering and hops well rounded. Decent lager for sure

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2013 Found this beer on tap in London, England and then found it at local LCBO store in Canada. This is a great beer. I did not know they made lagers out there with such enjoyable taste. Great beer for even the general person who is the anti-lager drinker.

Fresh from the tap at MSG. This one poured a darker orange color with an eggshell white head. Aroma was nice citrusy hops, and light toasted notes. Flavor was grainy, lightly sweet, and well balanced by moderately bitter and fruity hops. Great example of the style and a beer I could drink all day.
