12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma of toasted malts, brown sugar, nuts, tea, caramel, and a hint of earthy hops. Flavor is pretty much the same, with caramel and toasted malts, brown sugar, earthy hops, and nuts. Light-bodied, with a toasty, dry mouthfeel and low-medium carbonation. Nice.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle is clear red with thin white head, aroma brought notes of caramel some slight grass and grainy notes to it, hints of biscuit, yeast, some spice as well. Taste is pretty caramel forward, hints of spice and grass, touch of yeasty notes finishing fairly clean, slight hop bite as well.

Lemke10 (757) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 11, 2012
I had this on-tap at Wedges in Janesville, WI for $3 in early 2012. Pours a semi-cloudy amber color with about an inch of a frothy white head. Scent of toasted malts and caramel malts. The taste is mostly of toast malts that are slightly crisp and bitter mixed with some hints of citrus as well. Finishes with a slight dry after taste. Definitely much better than I was expecting. An overall great amber brew!

jmohno (1053) - Iowa, USA - FEB 13, 2012
Nice pinkish gold clear color. quick diminishing head. smells like strong lager light beer like aroma but with a faint light sweet malt aroma,fresh light clean distinct yeast aroma. Nice crisp bright taste with some sharp citrus hop tones,very clean sessionable quenching drinkable with a mild malt taste and mild malty sweetness. This would be great in a can to sit around a fire with and to eat with. Finishes crisp citrusy with some of the maltiness-light and clean with a mild sweetness.

mrjaxson (283) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Spot-on for the style: medium body and medium malty sweetness. A hint of caramel in the nose and a mild slap of hoppy bitterness on the finish. Goes perfectly with my wife’s fabulous lasagna.

ContemplateBeer (1507) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JAN 17, 2012
Aroma of caramel, honey oats, apple, pear and a balanced herbal hop presence. Appearance is copper/amber with light bone head. Flavor matches the nose; a nice toasty attack with a slightly sweet honey/fruit center with a refreshing herbal finish. Palate is bubbly and chewy with a bit of stickiness. A really well made lager with nice points of interest.

Gregis (1281) - Shawnee, Kansas, USA - JAN 16, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy pale brown, like iced tea with lemon squeezed into it, with an ecru head that drops fairly quickly. The nose is of sweet, slightly doughy caramel malt; very clean. The palate is light-bodied with a mild mineral quality that leads into a drying finish. Following the aroma, the flavor is of sweet, doughy, and slightly biscuity malt backed by just a hint of earthy hops. This is a pretty solid Vienna, and at 4 bucks per sixer, it’s a heckuva value as well.

BVery (5980) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 21, 2011
Bottle. Slightly hazy amber pour with a small off-white ring head. Aroma is toffee and caramel malt. Lighter, somewhat fizzy palate. Taste is caramel/toffee, earthy hops, and a bit (just a bit) on the watery side. Decent beer, for sure, but it shouldn’t elicit any "hey dude, you need to try....." texts.

Much tastier then Nordeast or Yuengling! Great early fall beer. Lots of sweet malty flavor balanced with great hops that doesnt overpower.
