2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours slightly hazy amber with small off-white head. Clear aroma of grain with touches molasses and caramel. Bitter, hoppy flavour with notes of caramel and citrus. Not bad, but more reminiscent of an APA than an Aber Lager.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bold, orange-amber in color with a full, off-white colored head, this beer is clean with moderate carbonation. The aroma is simply of an amber lager, with light caramel easily dominating the nose. A grainy character is also present, coupling with a dusty antique smell. The flavor is as expected, but very close in redness to that of an amber ale. Caramel malts prevail slightly over the inherent overall lager character. Something earthy
remains at its core, though, and shines in the finish. It’s likely pilsener malts and perhaps the character of its hops, but it simply tastes like the caramel simply, and finally, takes the back seat. Overall, not that I pleasant, but still much better than most amber lagers.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Liquor Depot (Dover, DE). Poured dark amber, cloudy, decent white head and decent lacing. Aroma of malts/caramel some yeast and grain. Taste is malty (a bit toasty); caramel and fruit balanced with some faint hop notes. A bit heavy for a lager but never the less, very drinkable and quite enjoyable.

The aroma is sweet, caramel. The appearance is a red/amber color, white head. The flavor is like the aroma, caramel, bread, brown sugar. The finish is light pine, lingering sweetness. Medium in body. Decent.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Drank out of bottle. Has amber color. Aroma is difficult since it was out of the bottle but the taste was that of malts, and grass with some hop touches. Felt rather heavy for a lager.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer has an auburn color with a small off-white head, and the aroma is simple with its currents of caramel malts and bread yeast. The taste is mildly sour and a touch sweet, and the palate combines a slick texture, medium body, abrupt finish, and a soft carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
650ml brown bottle. Amber pour, clear. Large sized beige cap that is long lasting. Lots of lacing left behind. Nose is toasty, grainy, light caramel. Taste has bready malts, light toasted notes, grassy hops. Finish has some light grassy aftertaste and some caramel and grains and is mostly dry. Light bodied, average carbonation. Easy drinker, pretty well done. Glad to see that this wasn’t just another pale lager, although I thought it was for a long time and that prevented me from trying this beer sooner.
