Sample at the Ping Pong, Foosball, and Great Beer tasting on 03/03/2012. Pours a slightly hazy yellow-amber color with a medium white head that evaporates steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruit and caramel malt. Light body with flavors of toasted malt, caramel and ripe fruit. The finish is sweet and malty with a slightly hoppy aftertaste. Pretty average overall.

Bottle shared by a friend. Pours clear amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt and earthy hops. Grainy malt flavor with a bit of fruit.

Served from a 12oz bottle from Flying Noodle beer of the month club. The appearance is a pale copper with a chill haze. The nose is fresh barley and pale malts. The flavors follow suite. The barley has a nice rawness to it. Nice toasty almost caramel flavors that develop into a hard candy with some butterscotch tones. Well done lager.

pale lagers are not my thing, but this was better than most. noticeble difference in this to macros, more emphasis on the bready malts, just enough hops to balance it out in the end. not bad.

bottle: this is what a premium lager should be like, IMO. IMpressive looking pour, clear dark red with a pillowy white head. Nose is cracked grain and creamed corn. Sweet toffee and thick malts with hint of skunk on the finish, a touch of bitterness and burnt sugar

I haven’t called a premium lager impressive yet, but this one truly is. Nice malty aroma with that tell-tale lager smell in the back. Pour was a beautiful clear amber with a one finger off white head. Flavor was big and full (especially for such a low ABV beer). Toasted malt filled the mouth with a slight biscuit and caramel flavor. Just a slight hoppiness in the aftertaste. Not bitter, just balancing. Nice beer!

Poured amber with nice off-white head. Mostly malt nose, hint of pine. Caramel malt sweetness, hop flavor light and light on bitterness, too. Slightly muddy finish. Had with dinner at Roy Moore Fish Shack

Jabic (386) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - JUL 16, 2011
Ar: Firm toasty maltiness, some red apple and caramel. Ap: Amber, slightly hazy, small white head with poor retention. T: Toasty malt, some light caramel and biscuit - dry with medium bitterness, steely and tea-like, and light cracker notes on the finish. P: Medium-light bodied with medium-high carbonation - crisp. O: Nice beer with a pretty substantial malt profile - certainly a session beer - not quite as intensely malty as a Vienna or Marzen, but same sorts of flavors.

This was the best lager I’ve had in quite some time. Just a very nicely balanced thirst quenching beer. I would say it is a throwback to the old days when men were men and women were glad about it.
