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.

Yes JB, this was a fine beeer to have right after tubing and before trying my hand on the jetski. This beer had more body to it than the usual Lager. I guess that’s why it’s premium.

The label calls this one an amber, ’premium lager’ doesn’t seem to do it justice. Very nice beer with a great balance of hops and malt, leaning towards malty. Enjoying it on a boat with our best friends made it all the more enjoyable.

pepper spice and malt flavor to this cloudy tea looking brew. a bit too little hop and this brew tastes like something is missing. a whole dimension of character, flavor!? call it what you like but at least the palate is open to insert something, what !!! with a good enough name, bottle and appearance cape ann reformulate this brew a bit and show us your skills. good luck since it won’t take too much.

Not much to like about this beer. While the aroma was ok the aftertaste was not pleasant and hung on the tounge for a long time. I would not and did not order a second.

Tasting at a beerfest [Disclaimer: This was tasted along with many, many other beers during a tasting at Julios. Some of the details are a little hazy]. Liked this one slightly better than their ale.

zach8270 (3502) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAY 17, 2009
(bottle - 12 oz) Hazy copper pour with a very thin off-white head. Aroma is lightly sweet and malty with a light touch of hops underneath. Flavor is sweet at the beginning with a crisp and lightly bitter hop balance near the middle. Finishes clean and lightly toasted with some malts and a bit of dry grass on the palate.

smcolw (530) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 1, 2009
Nice head that settles in a rocky fashion, leaving some chunky lace after each sip. Malty (crystal) aroma. Adequate hop to provide balance, but this smells closer to a cross between a Mild and a Scotch ale. Solid toasty malt flavor up front. Stronger hop finish than I expected. Provides good balance. A rich beer, but with good carbonation.

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 22, 2009
A busy orange beer with a volcanic, spouting pure white head. Not much of an aroma but one can never expect anything too special from a real lager. Big barley flavours. Dry and dusty with slight honey flavours. Very toasted. It has a good, flavourful and forward character and at this price it is a great summer barbecue beer!

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - MAR 29, 2009
12 ounce bottle from from Vintage Cellar. Pours a slightly hazy reddish copper. Medium head with decent head retention and lacing. Very nutty aroma with some caramel notes. Taste is bitter hops with caramel notes and some toastiness. Medium bodied.
