guzzler67 (1563) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Clear gold appearance with a small off white head and a fair amount of lacing. Subtle aroma of cereal grains dotted with caramel. Malts dominate the taste, more toasty than roasty, and only modestly hopped. Smooth, slightly sweet, short lived finish. Well made session beer of an underappreciated style.

tcane7 (1670) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 28, 2014
Bottle courtesy of Pedro. Pours a clean gold with thin, fluffy, white head and spots of lace. Aroma is hay, caramel, grassy and earthy hops. Sweet and malty with a light bitterness. Medium carbonation.

Jur (452) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 16, 2014
Draught @ Smoke & Barrel, DC. Pours clear amber, fast fading head. Modest nose, faint wet malt. Describes taste as well. Thirst quencher, not very interesting, bit bland even.

Great dark gold color. Not a real robust flavor that left me wanting for more. ---all in good suds.

Bottle. Clear amber color with a creamy head. Notes of caramel, bread, and nuts. Sweet and nice carbonation, but the finish is slightly bland. Quite good for the style.

On draft. Yummy lager. Really nice toast flavor, with a slightly sweet caramel finish. Nothing too fancy (well, it’s a lager), just really good.

kramer (5360) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear dark copper body under a small fizzy white head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is slightly grainy with toasted and lightly caramel maltiness. Minimal to no hops in the aroma. The flavor is pretty bland and boring with thin husky and grainy toasted malt, almost completely lacking in hops. There’s a lack of smoothness to this as well that belies the fact that this is a lager. Thin and watery with fizzy carbonation. Pretty disappointing, I thought that I had heard good things about this brewery. Guess I need to try some others from them.

kidobutai (517) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - DEC 17, 2013
Poured from a tap. No head or lacing. Nice dark golden color. Unremarkable aroma, malty flavor, full body and nice nutty taste coming through. Not a lager fan, but this wasn’t bad for a wing restaurant.
