COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A solid, malt emphasized lager, the firey hued richness perfectly balanced by clean hop bittering.

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.

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

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 20, 2008
Pretty mild amber. Flavors included some light sweet malt, light caramel, and mild hop bitterness. Smooth body but not a lot of flavor overall. Decent brew but not worth a second buy.

The aroma is dust and hoppy with a grassy/herbal hop. The malt is subtle and has a slight caramel quality. The appearance is light amber with a medium head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth from carbonation. Overall itís a bit off style and sort of a mess but not bad.

Pours a clear deep golden orange color, with a small dissipating head. Nose is malt and grainy. Taste is typical of most lagers , boring without taste or any real flavor. Better than most, with a crisp dry finish. Pass me the ales please! Quaff Score 5 / 10

bottle. Amber with small head. Mild caramel malt. Very light hops, and thin flavor profile. Somewhat below average.

2005 bottle from Robertsreality, who sent me practically every Capital beer! Orange golden body, bit of a chill haze, though not as hazy as the other capitals Iíve had. Off-white head is immediately dissipating to nothing. Aroma has lots of lightly sour yeast, bits of hard vienna malt and old bread. I wasnt as sold on this one as the others. A little bit meaty, quite sour/sweet, with too much breadiness, and light buttercream. Medium to medium-light body. Not a bad balance and a somewhat watery, though pleasing, drinkable mouthfeel. Moderate to low carbonation. I usually love all yeast flavors, perhaps itís some acidic mash flavors that I donít like? Not sure. Will have to try again.
