3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewery. Copper color with white head. Not much in the aroma department-- some faint maltiness and underlying bitterness. Flavor is mild caramel malt with some crisp hop bitterness in the finish. A bit watery throughout. Not bad at all, very drinkable, but not a knockout.

Rating from 3/06. On tap @ DD. Amber color. Caramel, toffee aroma. Taste is caramelly, mild earthy hops, hops mostly for bittering. Not too bad for what it is, a light amber lager.

The 12 ounce bottle poured a flat-but-clear orange-amber colored beverage with a small, creamy, white head that was mostly diminishing but that left good lacing on the glass. The aroma had a light, sweet and fruity fragrance to it. There were notes of caramel with a very light floral hop backdrop. The body was medium with a soft carbonation and a creamy, smooth texture. The flavor started out sweet and stayed that way through the medium-long finish. There was even a slight alcohol warmth in the chest.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. Light copper amber in color with a thin off white head. Aroma is a sweet doughy caramel, but not strongly pronounced. Carbonation level is high making the beer have an unpleasanrt palate when coupled to the thin body. Drinkable, but not memorable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz Bottle via Arctic Liquors Beer of The Month Club. Pours a semi clear amber with a small white head. Aroma is subtle-a bit of toasted grain, some vanilla, and lager yeast. While I am not a fan of the style, this is one of the best i have tasted. It starts with some vanilla, toffee, toasted grains and there is even some fruity esters underneath, some apricot and melon. Light/medium body. Low/moderate carbonation. Very tastey and refreshing. A high quality craft beer that i could easily drink several of.
