KajII (783) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - DEC 17, 2010
Bottle. Poured a hazy medium amber with a very small off white fizzy head that was fully diminishing and had no lacing to speak of. The aroma was very light of roasted bread malts, a flowery hop and a leathery yeast with hints of caramel and dried fruit. It tasted sweetly bitter and a little acidic from start to finish with the end having a mild notes of caramel and a slight hint of some fruitiness. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and oily in texture with a lively carbonation. Overall a nice tasting and refreshing brew.

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

Atheist_Peace (967) - 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 (1490) - 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 (578) - 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 (5011) - 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.

rondphoto (2088) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUN 27, 2013
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.

Bottle thanks to trade with phatdog1! Pours a clear amber brown with fluffy off-white head that dissipates to leave good lacing. Aroma of bready malts and a hint of astringency. Taste follows, nice caramel notes with a hint of spice. Solid Vienna lager.
