(From notes 2011) Poured from bottle at Durgin Park in Boston, Massachusetts. Pours a cloudy honey color with a minor head and almost no lacing. Nice aroma of hopiness with a touch of citrus, not too overwhelming but certainly present. Sweet and slightly spicy in taste, very enjoyable. Average mouthfeel of a lager, good drink-ability. A very good session beer.

A cloudy, light gold with a big foamy head that spilled over the glass before it quickly faded. It looked awful! Strong malt flavor, well balanced, with a nice hop finish in the aftertaste. A bit more robust than I would expect from an Amber. Full-bodied, mouth filling. Held up well to a hearty meal. Tastes great!

Aroma is a very very faint grassy, sweet smell. Poured a clear amber color with a small white head. Taste is quite intense considering the lack of smell. Is a nice toasty malt, little bit of caramel, and a quick dry finish. Feels light to medium bodied with lively carbonation.

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.

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

This was beer. It wasn’t great. It wasn’t bad, either. Just an okay beer in all respects: color was okay, head was okay, aftertaste was a little metallic, aroma was okay, hopped some, sweet some.

Can’t comment too much on the color because I had this out of the bottle (boo hiss, I know). There are nice caramel flavors that go well with the malty flavors present here. While this isn’t what I’d long for, I could see this being a very nice beer to have while grilling outside on a summer day. Nothing special, but not bad at all, either.

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.
