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

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.

Bottle. Dark amber with a tan head. Toasted malt flavor. Malt and hop aroma.

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.

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 it’s a bit off style and sort of a mess but not bad.
