Can’t believe my little local Grocer stocks this. Lager purest might not approve, cause it tastes like an IPA to me. Very hoppy. burnt toast and caramel corn. Supersize frothy blond head. Best lager.

22oz bottle - Pours light amber with a substantial white head. It has an aroma of sweet malt and some light, citrus hops. The flavor is hoppier than I expected with crisp, moderately strong bitterness balanced fairly well by the caramel malts. It’s a medium bodied beer that finishes with some good bitterness. It’s available at World Market around here.

I love the packaging. Extra points for kick ass graphics! Pours amber with copper highlights. Quickly disappearing white head. Aroma of grain, lightly roasted malt, grass with a hint of sweetness. Fairly crisp on the palate with a good amount of crisp malt and grassy hops to finish it off. Medium bodied. Very crisp and refreshing. Nice!

twindadplus2 (587) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 5, 2007
Coppery red with a small tan head. Aroma of dry grains, sweet malt and a hint of bitterness. Flavor of grain and sweet malt with an herbal bitterness in the finish. Nice mouthfeel and not too strong on the carbonation. Not bad at all.

Mild sweet grain malt aroma with wisps of hops, taste was a rather full bodied sweet grain flavor ,almost sugary at times with a noticeable hop bitterness in finish, lacked the crispness of a lager, displayed the full bodiness you would expect from all those different malts and hops,reminded me of an American version of an Oktoberfest, very interesting,thanks Kingpin

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 2, 2007
Bomber consumed at the Freak Bar at Coney Island. Pours copper with a tan head. Smells of sweet malt and some corn with some peppery splashes. Tastes very refreshing with some tea like elements and earthy hints. A fun beer at a fun and unusual place. Consumed with some of the freaks from the 10 in 1 freak show.

Reid (1855) - Salem,Oregon, Oregon, USA - SEP 2, 2007
I have no idea how this 22 oz bottle made its way to a small grocery store in Salem,Oregon. Lovely looking lager, dark copper with a large tan head. Great laceing throught the galss. Aroma I wasnt so pleased with, its sort of malty/nutty but with some off putting "cheesy sock" thing going on. Nice taste to strong on the malts, dark and semi-bitter, with a great zing of grassy/sherberty hops near the end. Pleasant hop aftertaste. Nice mouthfeel to this one, smooth under the well done carbonation. Drinkable vienna, very nice.

vyvvy (3904) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 2, 2007
Pours clear bronze with a bubbly light tan head. The aroma has well toasted smooth malt, some nuttiness and a bit of hops. Medium crisp body with quite a bit of sharp carbonation. The taste starts with dark toasted nutty malt and dry caramel. The finish adds some earthy / spicy hops A very respectable lager.

Harsebrau (227) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - AUG 29, 2007
Brown and clear with an off tan, frothy head. Good lacing for the duration. Malty sweet aroma. This beer was better than I thought it would be. Clean and sweet and asking for salty foods. More hop prescense than I expected. It added a crispness that was very nice.

beastiefan2k (2367) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - AUG 27, 2007
Pours a clear dark brown, slightly orange-ish with a small head. Aroma is present with macro-corn, caramel sweetness and some West Coast citrus hops. Taste is smooth with light lagered sweetness and again some felt hoppiness but more flroal and earthy. Finishes with low bitterness and a lagered fruitiness. Lighted bodied with average carbonation. Gets some bonus points for reppin my old hood, the big C.I. in BROOKLYN!!!!!!! I’m telling you this will be a collectors item one day. 22oz bomber, Rodenbach Grand Cru smaller tulip glass.
