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 (427) - 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.

probstblueribbon (2918) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 25, 2011
12 fl oz bottle from BOTW (Rochester), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. 21MR11.

App.: Clear deep amber with a large off-white foam. Aroma: Toasted biscuit, earthy, slightly nutty malts, some bright notes with a touch of metallic tang, caramel, bread crust, a touch of green, resinous hops. Palate: Medium body, elegant effervescence. Flav.: Caramel, much fruitier than the nose, nice,berries, tree fruits, a little raisin, very malt-forward, nice (again); dry with restrained bitterness and a clean, malty finish.

Quite drinkable.

a draft pour at the Cape Ann Alehouse. Light clear yellow. Nose of light malts and good fruit. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is malts and light hops. Good bitter finish. Excellent for the style.

auerbrau (3177) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - FEB 26, 2011
On tap at Yesterday’s Ale House - Newport, RI. Aroma gave a surprisingly strong fruity whiff. Otherwise quiet. Pale amber pour. Flavors are confused. Tight, crisp lagering and then instense fruitiness. I guess I could see this as coming with malts associated with the Vienna style, but they seem above average. Malt body and structure were cogent, but the flavors never jived for me. Otherwise, drinkable.

cheap (4054) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 27, 2011
Nice foamy pour but controlable. Rocky head. Don’t see many lagers with gunk on the bottom of the bottle. Smell is a little lemony at times. Really sharp and rude for a lager, has many ale attributes. It quite bitter bordering on IPA territory if thats possible. Maybe they mixed up the label on this one, heheh. Nasty heavy vanilla er sumthin going on here. I didn’t see the percentile but I bet it rates quite high here. Now I see it has a 50% for overall and a 93% for style, figures. Yes quite big in personality. It says 5% but let me tell you it feels more like 7%. Impressed. Didn’t expect this from a lager, wew.

KajII (782) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - DEC 17, 2010
Bottle. Poured a hazy medium amber with a very small off white fizzy head that was fully diminishing and had no lacing to speak of. The aroma was very light of roasted bread malts, a flowery hop and a leathery yeast with hints of caramel and dried fruit. It tasted sweetly bitter and a little acidic from start to finish with the end having a mild notes of caramel and a slight hint of some fruitiness. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and oily in texture with a lively carbonation. Overall a nice tasting and refreshing brew.

AirForceHops (3174) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 9, 2010
Bottle. Very good for a lager. Pours a hazy amber with a decent white head. Left lacing. Big, malty nose with some fruity hints to it. Flavor is rich and smooth, heavy on the sweet malts with a touch of caramel. Medium in body with mild carbonation. Some pleasant bitterness in the finish and aftertaste. I would buy again if I’m looking for something light and smooth, well made brew

joeyplush (630) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 7, 2010
Thinnish head with floating yeast on top. Aroma is very sweet and malty. Flavor is malty and also sweet, palate is very sticky and has a lingering roasted malt character.
