Tall boy. Aroma of slight malt. Pours copper with tanish head. Taste is nice mix of malt and hops. Some crisp grain notes popup on palate. Nicely structured beer.

This is one nice "lager"---it tastes more like a pale ale to me.
Very nice to drink on a hot day. Thank you NEW YORK!!!

Draft, copper color with a medium lasting head, very good hoppy flavor for a lager, wasn’t expecting it to have such a nice bite to it, nice bitter finish, overall it was a decent beer, nothing too great though.

Did several blind, side by side taste tests with this and Sam Adams and Sam Adams won everytime. Good beer though.

Bottle at On the Rocks. Nice yeasty aroma with a fine amber pour that was suprising for a lager. The taste was also impressive with hints of honey, oats, and hay. Nice smooth mouthfeel and medium body. Needs a slight addition of malts but overall this was a great choice for the price.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amber color with head that laces throughout. Aroma is rich and flowery with a sweet hint (honey?). Flavor is fresh hops and somewhat smokey, slightly caramel-sweet malt. Finish is bitter and very well balanced, medium bodied. Excellent.

Amber color with a lot of carbonation and a creamy head. Malty aroma and taste, with a hop tingle in the finish. Perfectly balanced, with a smooth medium body. Very drinkable.
