Basically, a perfect amber lager. Done the way it should be. Nice roasty character, but balance by some pine notes on the finish. Very clean, easy drinking.

RRistow12 (175) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Tasted from bottle. Pours a clear amber with off white head that fades quickly. Aroma is sweet, caramel, grains, and a little perfume. Taste is a clean light bodied malt dominated beer. Caramel, bread, nutty flavors. Minimal bitterness. Sessionable beer that would be good on a hot day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jgb9348 (4493) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Amber coloured body with a a copper glow at the bottom and a very thin half-centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of toasted malt, light sugar, very minimal hops and a nice fresh grain scent. Light-bodied; Nice fresh malt flavour with a good toasty flavour, some light wheat and a strong caramel and toffee finish. Aftertaste is mellow and subdued with only a little toffee and nutty flavours making things bitter, but the malt and light grain stays throughout. Overall, a nice light beer with some solid flavours and nothing bitter or offputting. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased on 30-December-2013 for US$2.39 from Corner Store (Bait and Tackle) in West Palm Beach, Florida sampled on New Year’s Day 2014 (January 1st) in my hotel room here in Clearwater, Florida.

ARH (158) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 29, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 12 oz bottle poured into nonic. Faint traces of orange in the aroma, but mostly dough smells. Appears clear amber with a light orange colored head which dissipates quickly. It’s comes on mostly sweet, but it’s a smooth sweet as opposed to overwhelming. It’s a medium body beer with strongest notes of citrus and malt, but finishes thin and caramel-sweet - couldn’t pick up too much of the hops. It has an average carbonation, but turns flat relatively quickly as it warms in the glass. Nothing lingers in the taste,and it finishes very clean. There’s nothing overly special or surprising about this beer. Nothing filling or offensive lends itself well to a session beer.

Bottle at random grill in Madison. Pours a reddish amber with an orange head. Aroma is heavy malty caramel with some light fruit. Taste is sweet caramel, some roughness, and some fruit. Medium bodied. Finishes sweetly biscuity caramelly, but not in a cloying fashion. Shrug? Not a top amber from not a top brewery. Would say "hit the style" however it is easy to name 10 better examples of the style.
