Amber color with taller off-white head. Mild malt, light toasted bread and some earthy caramel in the nose. LIght malty start. some caramel and toasted malt in the middle. Bit of citrus and pears toward the finish. Fairly clean finish. A somewhat better than average amber lager.

kramer (4945) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 3, 2006
12 oz bottle, via Thaichile. Pours an orangish copper body under a one finger craggy off-white head. Aroma is mostly a general graininess with some toasted and a little biscuity malt. Fairly light in flavor with some biscuity malt under a moderately bitter hoppiness. Finish is short and moderately bitter. Lighter bodied and a little thin with active carbonation. An OK, but unexciting, "Amber".

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.

nimbleprop (4873) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 4, 2007
Poured a translucent amber with orange hues and an active, frothy head that settles to one finger on the top. Aroma is balanced between malt and American hops. Flavor is very similar with yeasty, biscuit notes more reminscent of a Belgian than an American. Mouthfeel and finish were rather fizzy, they may have gone a bit overboard on the carbonation. I’ve had worse, not many though.

notalush (4853) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 23, 2005
A respectable vienna - strawberry blonde in color, herbal aroma with a touch of sweetness - quite hoppy, even for the style - a mild grainy maltiness - finishes clean

TomDecapolis (4477) - Milton, Delaware, USA - OCT 16, 2007
Opened with a huge hiss...and this bottle has been on a shelf for a couple months now. Pours a lightly hazy amber with golden highlights and a huge foamy off white head that left a bunch of lacing. Aroma of fruits, mixed citrus, some caramel, toffee, Flavor was lots of tingly carbonation, yeast, mixed fruits, toffee, toasted malts. I think some infection was settling in on this beer based on how carbonated it was in addition to all the fruity esters.

thornecb (4398) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 1, 2008
Pours deep amber into a shaker. Fluffy white micro head with excellent retention. Caramel malt aromas. Soft and well balanced with caramel upfront and a slight hop finish.

Poured a hazy copper color with a small light beige head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, and fruit. Had phenolic notes. Sweet malty caramel flavor. Light bitter finish is semi-dry.

Aurelius (4176) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 26, 2007
Kinda stinky cereal malt aroma. Over-carbonated. Big head, good label, lightly hazy, medium PA-coloring. Don’t know that I’d call this a ’Dark Lager’ - it’s really no darker than say, Yuengling. Makes a big icecream head. Tart, seedy. Very, very fizzy. Finishes quick and moderately sugary. From the bottle. A mishmash. I’m really a bit puzzled, looking at the other ratings, which say things like ’mahogany’ and ’dark amber’. This beer is clearly labeled ’Fisherman’s Brew’ but is only a medium orange-amber.
