SpringsLicker (3046) - Tennessee, USA - DEC 2, 2007
This pours as an amber/orange bodied brew that throws up a creamy, off-white, long lasting head. Some fruitiness in the aroma despite it being a lager. Good malt/hop balance and presence. Decent body, some dryness comes in at the finish. I could drink another one.

Copper/amber, with a very larger, off-white head. Aroma is fruit, malt, and caramel. Flavor is caramel, fruit, and malt. plenty of carbonation.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - APR 6, 2008
12 oz bottle. Clear dark gold with a big white head. Sweet malty nose, caramel and orange, a bit grainy with some earthiness. Flavor is more earthy than expected, some mild citrus, a bit of herbal hoppiness. This is a nice little session beer. Nice, drippy lacing. Citrus comes through stronger in the finish. Not bad at all...

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 18, 2008
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.

kevd193213 (841) - 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.

williamherbert (1229) - Syracuse, New York, USA - MAY 9, 2010
Very good bright sunny orange hue with a large rocky white head. Lots of haze, serious carbonation. Leaves a little foam. Has a German malt bitter aroma. Filled with a mild bitter hop second wave scent. A slightly woody smell is in the hops, the hops also being a bit floral. Some strong ale alcoholic punch. Tastes like a strong/special ale with some bitter amber malt thrown in. Good alcoholic punch. Hops add a flowery but bitter addition. Bitter and grassy, and somewhat sweet. Feels thick like a strong ale, even though it’s somewhat ashy. But not in a bad way. A nice, thick, heavy, bitterish drink, with a sweet balance.

puboflyons (1883) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 9, 2012
From an undated 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is medium to dark amber that can be otherwise described as bronze with a short-lived head. The aroma has a pleasant ester of dark malts, nutty notes, and candied sugar. The body is medium. The taste is sweet with low bitterness and a smooth finish. Very drinkable.

Slightly hazy medium amber, persistent heavy head cover, swaths of lace. Taste opens with sweet malt and light toast, joined by mild bittering midway through the palate, slowly dissolving to sweet malt again at the finish. Refreshing, easy to drink, good with seafood.

Art of Beer Festival 2004: Has a nice amber color with some carbonation and a some lacing. Smell is sweet malted. Taste is sweet malted with slight roasted flavor and finishes moderately bitter. Overall I am not a fan of the amber beer, but this one is not too bad.

Pours deep amber with a big off white head that fades fast. Malty, earthy aroma. Sharp somewhat spicy taste, nice maltiness. Some toffee, good mouthfeel. Well made.
