I like this brewer’s product line. I enjoy this dark lager as well, but I must say that it is pretty mainstream....and let’s face it...I deserve better than that!

I had this at a bar. The appearance is an amber color. It had a tan, bubbly head with good lacing. Smells like a typical amber beer. A bit light. The flavor is of sweet honey, evergreen hops, with a mild bitter kick. The palate was a medium mouthfeel with a soft carbonation. Overall, a decent amber. Not very artful, however.

(12 oz bottle: Obtained in trade with hopdog, thanks Steve!) Okay, this is comes across pretty much as your basic amber lager. It’s minimally sweet and lightly caramely, but mostly just a dry, grainy, lagerish flavor with a bit of hops for balance. Grainy aroma, lagerish, not sweet at all. Light-medium bodied, dry and clean on the palate. Deep orange-amber color, fully hazy, and topped by an inch of light-tan head. Retention is average, the head fading to a ring, and there are a few dots of lace on the glass. Wow, just not much to say about this one. Average as average could be.

Dark Amber. Diminishing head. I'm having a hard time describing this. Pretty typical for the style but something's not quite right. I found this a little too thin on the palate and overly malty with some metallic off notes resulting from fizzy carbonation. It not bad. It just doesn't sit right with me.

Dissapointing. Sweet and malty, good carbonation. Not enough hops. Poured nice dark golden color with good head which soon evaporated, but had nice lacing. I wouldn't turn it down if offered, but I won't seek it out again.

Light amber orange with no head. Cherry, malt nose and not much else. Med weight with light sweetness that ends quickly. Rich with light fruit and dull muted roasted flavors. Not bad not great.

From a 12 oz. long neck twist cap brown bottle with a date stamped on shoulder on bottle, 2585, translates to 15/Sept/05. Made a decent appearance, poured a clear amber with a small foamy white head that reduced to a fine lacing. Had a sweet caramel-ish malty and fruity aroma with whiffs of a pear yeastiness. Moderate carbonation and a slick light bodied mouth feel, average drinkability. Had a sweet bready taste with some pear/plum flavors, a mild fruity hop bitterness in the middle and a semi-dry, crisp grainy finish with a lingering metallic aftertaste.

Don’t see anything spectacular about it. But not really my style of beer. Nothing wrong with it, just not for me.
