pours out a dark clear honey with a tall off white head that was nicely lumpy. the body is a clear light amber with very few bubbles in the mix. the aromas are a slight malt backbone with nice overtones of a subtle yeast with a light hop presence making an apearance also. it is a sweet yet bitter malty medium bodied flavor that is a little unbalanced. has a nice hoppy taste in the back of the palate when it finishes, but malty with notes of hay, biscuits, butter and sweet nuts. interesting mix of malt and very nice.the aftertaste is light and pleseant that is a little buttery on the tongue. nice beer.

Astringent. Buttery. Metallic. And thats just the nose. The appearance was the only thing this beer had going for it. 2 sips and I was done. Buttery, metallic, weird esters and just plain undrinkable. Bad bottle or batch, I assume. A real shame, as these guys typically make some good beer.

Eh, not so bad. Pours a red/brown color, aroma is of thick malts, as is flavor, with a floral finish as it sits on your tongue. Thats it. Nothing really special.

natedoggkc (164) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - SEP 14, 2007
Pours hazy amber, nice apperance. Aroma is pretty hoppy and has some caramel in there as well. Definately hoppy with a fairly good balance of sweet malts. The finish is kind of gritty and not to my liking. Not a bad lager though.

This is a pretty good beer with a slight bitter aftertaste that i fell in love with. This beer may give your tastebuds a reverse Onhard.

forsides (118) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 15, 2009
amber, light brown, minimal head. nose is mellow... hoppy, pilsner yeast notes. taste is crisp... well balanced hops and light/medium malts. refreshing, dry finish.. made me realize how long it’s been since i’ve had a lager, and for a lager this is pretty nice.

Blackbarrel (116) - new york, New York, USA - SEP 11, 2007
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.

At a tasting, thanks DSG, bottle, reddish, hoppy and fruity aroma, dry, bitter aftertaste, and overall a very rich and interesting beer.
