More like an amber lager it was fine to drink. Enjoyably at all features and quite strong in some moments too.

Amber color with a thin off white head. Big malty nose. Flavors of dark brown sugar, malt syrup, and some dark toast. Like most ambers, its a pretty generic beer. Nothing wrong, but nothing interesting.

Draft at UM at Canal Side. Iíve had this before, but never rated it. Wasnít much craft selection there so I had to go with this. Pours a dark clear amber with small bubbly tan head. Aroma isnít much. Some caramel, brown sugar, bread. Flavor was the same as the nose. Lager yeast notes. Body was light and thin texture. Average carbonation. Not very good at all.

Bottle at home. Aroma is caramel malts with a bit of turpentine. Pretty basic flavor profile... malt heavy, dry crisp finish, zero complexity. Passable at best but one is plenty, thank you.

Light lacing, toasty amber beer, worth a try, but I doubt youíll find anything you havenít tasted before.

This is a decent amber colored brew. It is a bit caramelly for the style maybe but is still pretty tasty and dry with solid bitterness in the finish. It has a nice noble hop character and a good bit of bready malt a well. I wasnít sure what to expect from a lager from this brewery but this is really pretty good.

Deep red-orange. Just a finger of head. Classic Vienna appearance. Slow, tiny bubbles. Aroma is very sugary, with a very heavy toffee/molasses undercurrent. Touch of black licorice. There some dates that are very mild. Taste is sugary, heavy caramel. Itís just malts, no hops can be detected. The feel is thick and a little chunky, like a shag carpet. Itís a very sweet American ale. not a hop to be found. It would be tempting to compare it to macrocrap like Yuengling (itís closest cousin) but the flavors are good and complex enough to separate it.
