At Barbecue Dave’s, Sterling VA, November 2013. Deep amber with a decent, off-white head. Sweetish lager, with some caramel and a few hops in the finish. Ok.

Bartender poured a taste. Bitter, bland, lackwd any lager qualities. Yuck...have I filled up enough letters to post this comment?

sloth (2636) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - DEC 3, 2013
Medium sized off white head with fair retention and lace. Clear, light copper hued brew. Nose is malty with caramel and light breads. Body is light with a decent carbonation, faintly oily, slightly tart. Lightly sweet malt flavors with a little bit of hop spicyness.Grainy with an almost dry finish. Went well with my barbecued, pulled chicken sammich. Draft at Old South Smokehouse.

Looks a pretty amber in the glass, but the fun stops there. Smells and tastes, I hate to say it, like a cheap domestic. Would not buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Thin head. Tea colored. Tastes similar to commercial description - some bready malt but not much bitterness. Good example of a Vienna larger. Will buy again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Just know that I like it. Appearance: Color is reddish amber and mostly clear. Aroma: Bready malt. There is no bitter bite to this beer. Smooth, "bready" malt with slight hop taste to it. Love this beer.

The beer is copper to amber colored with a half inch of head. The aroma brings lager character, yeast, a touch of fruit, sweet breads, grain. A tad sweet, countered to a small degree by a touch of bitterness. Pretty light in body with moderate carbonation. A nice complement to the bratwurst and sauerkraut.

I am certainly no expert on the art of brewing of craft beer, and I am most certainly a layman with regard to the terminology used by many adept reviewers on Rate Beer. Lagers are not typically my style of choice unless I am cooking with beer. This lager, from Devil’s Backbone, lacks balance, a quality in many lagers that I do not care for. There is an abundance of flavor in this lager, citrusy hops and caramel malt with a nice dry finish. Best lager that I’ve had.

Luvystypotables (1057) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - SEP 21, 2013
Amber colour, average head, light yeast and carmel aroma. Fizzy, with a smooth taste, but not much palate.

Golden to amber color with little aroma. Sharp lager taste, minimal malt backbone. Clean finish.
