3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shaker pint draft at the brewpub in Columbus, Ohio. Pour is a clear brown golden with a smallish off white head. Aroma is a touch of char roast malt, along with a hint of nutty malt. Nice fresh nose. Taste is nutty, slight roast and a mild toasted sweet maltiness. Really crisp, clean and flavorful. Palate is medium to light bodied with the soft char roast lingering nicely in the after taste. Quite smooth. Really drinkable tasty beer. Nice one.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap into a pint glass...Pours a pretty ugly watered down coca-cola with a light white head, ok retention and lacing...The aroma is light, almost dead, I can pull a little roasted malt and toffee...The taste is light but refreshing, light roast, caramel, and tofee. Super easy to drink.
This is good dark lager, try it.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Elevator Brewing Co, Columbus OH, March 2010. Not particularly dark - amber / copper colour. Thin off-white head. Caramel character in the aroma and flavour, but also some chewy drier malt. Pleasant enough, if a little short of impact.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
This bottled brew from a beer festival poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a uncarbonated transparent dark copper brown colored body. The mild aroma was nutty and brown malt. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The mild flavor contained notes of softly acidic nutty and brown malt. Not one that I would likely drink again.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle poured into a pint glass produced a finger worth of white head that faded to a good lace. The body of the brew was an interesting reddish brown color.
The aromas were a little roasted and bready yeast, it was very light and subtle. Basically what I look for in a lager when it comes to smell. The flavor was roasted and sweet at the same time. It was crisp and light in the mouth with good carbonation. It was a easy brew to drink and was looking for more when I finished it
