Orange-amber with modest, creamy, beige head / Nose of sour malt / Light to medium body, sour and malty, soft carbonation and a little watery, with fair finish / Simple flavors of sour malt, cooked fruit, and caramel / Below average, for a lager.

Ratman197 (9448) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 12, 2010
Bottle poured a clear amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of graininess, carmel and earthiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, earthiness and a hint of fruittiness with a smoth carmel finish.

Frothmeister (544) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2010
12oz bottle. Pours a clear, light reddish brown with a tan head. Aroma of burnt sugar, malt, faint yeast. Surprisingly flavourful for a lager. Tastes similar to Fuller’s ESB. Sponge toffee, treacle, dried fruits with some bitterness. A pleasant surprise! Honestly, if tasting blindly, I would never guess this was a lager.

r464 (1883) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2010
Orangey color. Aroma of malts with hits of hops. Not all that bad for a lager. A step above the macro brews, but still rather tepid. A safe session beer or one to have for a crowd.

williamherbert (1258) - Syracuse, New York, USA - MAY 9, 2010
Very good bright sunny orange hue with a large rocky white head. Lots of haze, serious carbonation. Leaves a little foam. Has a German malt bitter aroma. Filled with a mild bitter hop second wave scent. A slightly woody smell is in the hops, the hops also being a bit floral. Some strong ale alcoholic punch. Tastes like a strong/special ale with some bitter amber malt thrown in. Good alcoholic punch. Hops add a flowery but bitter addition. Bitter and grassy, and somewhat sweet. Feels thick like a strong ale, even though it’s somewhat ashy. But not in a bad way. A nice, thick, heavy, bitterish drink, with a sweet balance.

oteyj (2130) - New Hampshire, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Brownish amber pour with a small off white tight foamy head that leaves a nice sticky lacing. The aroma is bready caramel toffee with light note of nut and some fruity esters. The flavor is nice for the style- caramel and toasty toffee with a nice floral hoppiness. The palate is medium for the style with a slight astringency and supple texture. Not bad at all for the syle, and average overall.

Capa (1963) - Manama, BAHRAIN - APR 27, 2010
Biscuit malts with spicy hops in the aroma and flavor. Toasted malt is pretty strong in the flavor with a light fruity note, too. Decent amber lager, though I’ve never been a big fan of the style.

Leighton (10419) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 29, 2010
Bottle. A very solid lager. Pours a glowing orange-brown with a decent white head. Big, malty nose with some fruity hints to it. Flavor is rich and smooth, heavy on the sweet malts with fruit notes and caramel. Medium in body with mild carbonation. Some pleasant bitterness in the finish and aftertaste.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 21, 2010
Well... I sure pinned this style down in a single guess. Pretty spot on as far as amber lagers go. Bright orange colour with a full malty nose. Touch of corn. Sweet and smooth mouthfel with really nice fruity characteristic. Pretty easy session beer I picked up in Newark a couple months ago. Forgot I still had it!

Lubiere (9734) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 24, 2010
A golden lager with a thick light moka head. A rather unpleasant mineral malt eith light adjunct notes. In mouth, a rather bland lager with light butterscotch notes, a bit of rye notes, bland. Bottle at Lucky’s Logan Airport, Dec. 28 2009.
