Lubiere (10453) - 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.

kwerikson (178) - burlington, New Jersey, USA - JAN 20, 2010
pours honey gold with an off white eggshell head that was about a finger thick and fell rather slow. the body is a hazy amber with some co2 rising from the center of the glass. the aromas are citrusy and slightly hoppy with some floral notes and light fruit. it is light bodied with a pretty good balance of sweet and bitter. the hops are up front and plesent and finishes with a really good malt backbone that finishes semi dry. aftertaste isnt so great but still light and has some flavor.

Hazy blond color. Very simple Ale, not worth many words.

BillKismet (3360) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 25, 2009
Orange bodied with a cream head. Nice E.S.B-Browny ale style, though it may be a lager. toasty malt and muted hops. Effortlessly nuanced and unpretentious, but rather flavorful and workman-like.

Svesse (6296) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - NOV 22, 2009
(Bottle, Oliver Twist, Stockholm) Amber colour with brief, beige head. Malty, bready nose with ryvita, caramel and spicy hops. Malty taste with notes of brown bread, citrus peel, toasty vienna style malt and spicy hops in the finish. Medium body, balanced malt sweetness. Medium bitterness. Tasty and spicy vienna style lager.

halfonit (1183) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 11, 2009
This brew has a dark golden color. Aroma is of sweeter malts, hops, and caramel. Taste is basically the same. Has a sweeter malt aftertaste. Not too bad.

joeymacaroni (309) - Wagontown, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 14, 2009
ok. i bought a case of this for 15 bucks on clearance having never heard of it. i didn’t give it much thought; my wife likes ambers, it’d be a good filler beer, and it’s cheaper than Yuengling. whatever. Well, i tried it and was instantly in love. It drinks like so much more than an amber lager. it pours a cloudy sienna color with a thin off-white head. the aroma is kinda fruity- candy, bubblegum, cherry, plum- and toasty. the flavor, though, is what makes it. it’s really bready and toasty. it’s got a dark fruitiness to it. it’s got more hoppy bitterness than any other lager I can think of, and the finish is dry and malty with a pretty solid bitterness. i highly recommend it.

decaturstevo (5213) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - SEP 17, 2009
Golden pour with hints of red. Light head and lace. Nice caramel malt aroma. Sweet start with a hint of cherriness. A hint of hop bitter on the end. Thin and a bit watery, decent carbonation. Not bad more like an amber ale than at PL.

On tap at Barcade. Pours a clear pale golden amber wit ha thin white head. Mostly empty aromas with some malt and a little bit of citrus. Medium bodied, light malt, not much else. Finishes with a light bitter.

kevd193213 (877) - Hope Valley, Rhode Island, USA - AUG 30, 2009
12 oz bottle. Amber pour with a thin off white head. Aroma of malt and faint hops. Great full flavor of roasted malt. Pleasant surprise, really good local (for me) lager.
