(From notes 2011) Poured from bottle at Durgin Park in Boston, Massachusetts. Pours a cloudy honey color with a minor head and almost no lacing. Nice aroma of hopiness with a touch of citrus, not too overwhelming but certainly present. Sweet and slightly spicy in taste, very enjoyable. Average mouthfeel of a lager, good drink-ability. A very good session beer.

12oz bottle in a lager glass. Pours copper with a beige head. Aroma of pale and caramel malts with some light hops and hints of toast. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent beer.

puboflyons (2049) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 9, 2012
From an undated 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is medium to dark amber that can be otherwise described as bronze with a short-lived head. The aroma has a pleasant ester of dark malts, nutty notes, and candied sugar. The body is medium. The taste is sweet with low bitterness and a smooth finish. Very drinkable.

bottle to glass; amber pour - not much aroma. taste starts malty but then an odd metallic flavor takes over - finishes dry and hoppy - slightly below average...

Aroma is a very very faint grassy, sweet smell. Poured a clear amber color with a small white head. Taste is quite intense considering the lack of smell. Is a nice toasty malt, little bit of caramel, and a quick dry finish. Feels light to medium bodied with lively carbonation.

Draft. Cloudy orange color. Smells of nothing. Tastes of fruit and hops. Decent. Not bad

Vir4030 (496) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 26, 2012
Pours a slightly cloudy light greenish tan with a few suspensions and almost no head. Smells like a lemon tea, or a long island. Flavor is bitter sour carmelized and not my cup of tea.

dmac (3896) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - APR 29, 2012
Draft at Barcade JC. Poured a medium amber/brown body with a smaller sized slightly foamy super light beige head. Aroma of biscut, grains, touch of nuts and citrus. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a quick fading aftertaste. Flavor is the same as the aroma and boring, biscut, grain, hint of nuts and a splash of citrus hops. Drinkable and forgetable.

Not a terrible lager, not grreat either. Drinkable when your other options are inbev products. Smooth and somewhat flavored for a lager.

Can’t comment too much on the color because I had this out of the bottle (boo hiss, I know). There are nice caramel flavors that go well with the malty flavors present here. While this isn’t what I’d long for, I could see this being a very nice beer to have while grilling outside on a summer day. Nothing special, but not bad at all, either.
