Surprised by the low reviews. Scents of dough and cinnamon. Hint of cinnamon within each sip. Not at all dry, with a strong traditional amber taste and the right amount of hops. Perhaps not the most complex beer, but easy to drink and the right flavor for a simple daily drink.

Lothore (621) - California, USA - MAR 29, 2014
A- Pours a copper color with a fizzy, off white head. S- Mettalic tinges, light wheaty maltiness. T- Very light, lots of grain and breadiness with very little hop getting through. M- Medium bodied, fairly dry with medium carbonation. D- After the smell I was a little worried but this one came together nicely. A good session beer and one I wouldn’t mind having again.

Just a brutally generic amber beer. Begs the question why so many are available.

Pours an amberish brown with a tan thin head. I was very pleasantly surprised by this beer. Some caramel. Very smooth. Medium bodied. Hoppy but not overbearing. Still tasted the malt. Very nice beer.
