4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 20/20
Probably the first good lager I ever had. With actual taste, it left me quite surprised. With hints of caramel and bitterness, but all at a subdued lager level. I found it to be very spicy and herby as well, but all within a comfortable range. I rated it so high, because this is what lagers have the potential to be, instead of light piss water.

Poured into an imperial pint glass. This lager poured a great amber cloudy color with a frothy head. What a great flavor! This is a bold lager, lager being the foundation. On top of that just enough malt and a good heap of hops. Big round mouthy flavor. Cheers!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Brass Monkey, NY. Clear amber color with thin creamy off-white head, excellent lacing and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of toasted, caramel and biscuit malt, herbal and mild floral hops. Taste starts with sweet caramel malt, following is refreshing fruity and grainy sour, while finish is moderate bitter. Medium body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Surprisingly good for bottom fermentation brew, but that’s American quality...

Tasty lager here. Bubbly and with caramel notes. Ambet looking, light bodied. Short, weak palate, and thats why is just a good try but nothing compare to the Brooklyn Lager.

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.
