pours lighter than expected, but definitely an amber tone. Aroma is tangy malt and sweet carmel. Flavor is rather full, definite sweet toasty malt flavors but also a decent hop bitterness at the end. Nice finish in the combo of a sweet malt and a nice lingering dry bitterness.

Bottle. Clear amber color, medium off white head. Aroma of toasted biscuit. Taste is malty, slightly nutty, slight earthy. Good example of the style.

rjplumer (762) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - JUL 31, 2015
(12 oz.can) Mild caramel malt aroma. Hazy amber and gold body with a healthy head to start. Mild caramel malt taste with only mild bitterness. Clean and bodied finish. Well balanced and enjoyable.

DSG (9303) - Tel Aviv, - JAN 9, 2015
Can sample at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Thanks Amit. Clear deep gold. Aroma of malt, caramel and floral hops. Sweetish flavor with malt, floral hops, a bit of caramel and a nice bitter finish, a bit piney. Light to medium-bodied. Decent.

At Cheers, Beacon Hill, Boston, MA. Classified as amber lager, though quite bitter. Taste (and smell) actually reminding of the sea.

Atheist_Peace (981) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 2, 2014
Light amber pour, quite clear, with lots of nearly white head. Very grainy nose, almost to the point where it smells like fresh wort. There’s a little hint of caramel underneath but this is really quite one dimensional to me. The palate is about the same, but slightly better. There’s a little spicy hint that gives it at least a touch of character. This is definitely a pass.

Pours a clear coppery amber with off-white head. Bready malty aromas. Citrus and honey notes. A pretty average lager, nothing special at all.

Scrapersnbeer (1531) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 2, 2013
Spicey and nutty earthy aroma with some metallic background. Clear orange color, collapsing head. Bittersweet caramel taste, very much an English brew in this way, although it’s a lager. Crisp clean body, for medium length sessions. Okay stuff, not a match for the heavy hitters in this category.

SamP01 (641) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Pours a coppery amber with a medium off white head. Aroma of light caramel malt some grains and light fruity notes. Taste same as aroma with mild bitter notes. Palate is a medium body with mild carbonation. Finish is light caramel malt and grains, light bitterness and fruity notes, and a mild nutty ending. Overall not a very robust brew in flavor and aroma, just an ok brew.

EithCubes (5304) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Bottle. Nose lightly dusty with a sprinkling of sweet earth, Munich with the muted earthy-spiciness of English hops. Pours a beautiful dark copper-amber with a rocky beige head. Spicy English hops [aha! It must be the Nugget] and crystal malt with a little sweet darkness of Munich and some nice rolling malt depth, lightly woody; bitterness is very light and more nutty-earthy than bitter, also overwhelmed by the sticky sweetness. Light fruity edge-rounders and a pleasant buttery undercurrent. Love the toasty character here. Medium-fullish body, aftertaste dries a bit. This is my vision of a traditionalist Englishman brewing an Alt for his Rhenish guests with what was at hand; it has a wonderful balance between malt and hops and would do very well in multiple seasons, best late at night.
