HighlanderOne (1233) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - DEC 4, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2014 Poured from growler purchased at brewery. Very heady aroma of I’m not sure what. Pours a big tan head that calms down after a while. Opaque mahogany. Caramel, nut, hops, wood, ginger, veggie in flavor. Slightly off aftertaste, but very drinkable. Pretty good.

On tap... somewhere. Poured into a pint glass. Dark clear color, like a nut brown ale but lighter. Nice molasses smell. No head at all and no lacing. Clean, dry mouthfeel with rather little body, but that’s not bad at all; makes it easy to drink. Tastes smokey with molasses, toffee, and a slight sour undertone. Excellent beer. I really like dark lagers and I’m glad to have tried this one. Perfect session beer; I wish I could get it easier!

ben4321 (5697) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 21, 2010
Location: Sampled at the NY Brewfest on Governor’s Island, 6/19/10

Aroma: The nose is mostly toasted and cereal malts
Appearance: Pours a hazy, dark reddish color with a fluffy head
Flavor: The flavor is pretty good, a nice cereal/grain feel to it with just a touch of hops
Palate: The body drinks really nicely, with a solid mouthfeel
Overall Impression: Overall, I thought this was a pretty good beer. A nice looking amber beer with a good flavor and a nice mouthfeel. Solid and enjoyable. I liked both of the Defiant beers that I tried at the festival.

Pours a light copper. Nose is malty and rye. Flavor follows the nose. Nice malt and rye flavors. Finish is dry solid session beer. Some chocolate notes. Nice.

jmulv (336) - New York, New York, USA - APR 26, 2010
Everything that a lager should be. Goes down very smooth, finishes clean, well-balanced with a very tiny kick at the end. Extremely sessionable, if I can find more around, it could be a favorite this summer.

blipp (8181) - La Mesa, California, USA - APR 3, 2010
Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Light floral hoppy aroma. The flavor has some crisp hoppy notes, some floral notes and a light sweetness. Decent.

Rciesla (5500) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 4, 2010
Draft. Pours an amber body with an off white head. Bitter dry and nutty with a strange chemical note, very odd. Bread y a bit metallic with some toasted malt and a mild nutty malt tone. Eh.
