A light-bodied, slightly hoppy amber lager. Caramel malt, roasted/burnt malt and citrus hops. Sort of a hybrid style of beer. Flavor is a little too light - needs more swagger.

Originally rated on6/6/14. Pours a murky orange-brown with a foamy tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, caramel, and citrus zest aromas. Taste is much the same with earthy citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel.

12oz bottle from Joe Canals. Poured an unimpressive murky brown with a foamy off white head. Aroma of. Bad malts, bread, light hint of molasses, dry brown sugar. Flavor is like the aroma with some addition of super old and dry citrus rind and tonic water.

arminjewell (8672) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAY 6, 2015
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark reddish pour with slightly off white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, bread, dough, some slight yeast into a bit of grass, slight pine into a bit of orange, hints of grain. Taste was a mix of caramel, bread, dough into a bit of yeast, slight grass, some earth, finishing slightly bitter.

Hands down one of the best hoppy lagers i’ve had. Nice big body with great malt flavors and the hop choice was perfect.

Ericular (802) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 24, 2015
5 months old, so maybe on the edge of freshness. Pours a nice clear golden color with thin lasting head and good lacing. Aroma is earthy, spicy, bready malts. Taste is nice semi-sweet caramel and bready malts. with some hop bitterness in the background, bringing a little citrus. This is good, and I’d like to try it fresh sometime as I imagine it would be much better.

Swagger pours a red color with great white head and nice lacing. Aroma is big citrus hops, sweet aroma as well. Clean, crisp, hoppy, just fantastic.

Pours an orange Amber color with off white foam head. Aroma of caramel, grapefruit, and earthiness. Sweet caramel taste with perfect hop hit and nice grapefruit flavors throughout. Nice and frothy. Definitely one of the top hopped red ales/lagers I have had. Up there with Tocobago (an ale) which is saying a lot coming from me.
