12oz bottle from Pick’s poured into a shaker. Pours a dark amber with a half finger of white head. Pretty subtle aroma. A little caramel malt with some skunk and metal shavings. Taste is about the same. Caramel and skunk. Medium bodied with a creamy texture. Lively carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, it’s ok. Nothing I would buy again though.

22oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy, orange-copper color; modest light-tan head with fine-bubbled lacing. Crackly pale ale malts, cereal grains, and a spicy/herbal hop character in the aroma; a touch coarse. Medium body; medium-high carbonation; following the nose, the approach is rough here: excess CO2, sharp bitterness and (seemingly) some tannic qualities from the malt; the flavor’s endearing once one gets past that, showing some really nice cereal grains, spicy hop flavor, and toasty Pils malt; plenty tasty going on here, but a muddled and sharp mouthfeel isn’t helping. Lasting toasty finish: modest dryness, lingering mineral bitterness and cereal grains.

PaulUnwin (86) - Pinellas Park, Florida, USA - NOV 8, 2011
hazy appearance, aroma of bread, lightly bitter, light body, average carbonation, tastes pretty much like similar lagers of this style.

mkel07 (3446) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 29, 2011
650ml bottle. Lively in the glass with a big thick head and a hazy deep orange colour. Looks very much like an IPA. Biscuity malt invades the nose with traces of pine needles in the background. Clean in the mouth. Too many of these and you would end up looking like the dude on the label.

BucannonXC5 (857) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 28, 2011
Poured from a bottle into a pilsner glass. Color was caramel amber. Maybe an inch of head. Nice amount of lacing on the top. Lots of film on the sides of the glass. Smelled of toasty malts. I want to say citrus hops in there, too, but that might have been wishful thinking. Tasted of creamy roasty malts. Medium-to-full body. Creamy texture. Lively (moderate) carbonation. Smooth finish. Filled me up a bit too much for my liking. A pretty good beer all-around and I really tried to downgrade it for some reason. Give it a try.

Davros (1948) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 26, 2011
Pours dark amber with a large head. Nose shows toffee, caramel, bready malt and faint citrus. Similarly malty flavours, more caramel, bready malt, cardboard and soft toffee. Some spicy and piny hops are also present. Finishes with a sharp, slightly metallic bitterness. Carbonation could be a little lower.

paultheguru (644) - Parker, Colorado, USA - OCT 15, 2011
Tawny in color, with a nice white head. Solid hop aroma, very earthy. Crisp malt smell, very fresh draught. Smooth, nice bit and a classic Vienna style lager.

Hans12 (5) - California, USA - OCT 12, 2011 does not count
poured into a pilsner glass. golden amber color. pretty subtle aroma, mostly malt, some skunk, a little metal. good malt taste. dry clean finish with lingering hop bitterness. Nothing over the top. nicely balanced refreshing beer. lots of flavor but subtle.

Beaver (1301) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 2, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy light amber with a small off white head that leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is sweet toasted caramel and toffee malts.

The flavor is sweet toffee and caramel malts with a grassy bitter finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation and a syrupy sweet texture.

Overall, I didn’t care for it too much. Reminded me of an amped up Dos Equis.
