From 12 oz. bottle to glass, I got a nice 3-finger, creamy head. Very nicely balanced lager. The malt and the hops complement each other nicely.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Originally rated on 7/22/08. Beer no. 1 out of a 12 pack sampler. Pous a nice deep amber body with lots of carbonation, but a small yellowish head. Aroma was a little nutty, and hints caramel as well. Flavor of roasted malts, nuts and caramel. Decent finish.

I remember drinking this and thinking "Why does this weak ass lager taste like such a hoppy pale ale?" It’s bitter in a way that isn’t enjoyable and it has no fun qualities to make you come back for more.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
BOD 250/15. Pours a clear medium amber that is light garnet in intense light. World class head volume, lacing and retention.
Somewhat light nose of caramel and earthy hops.
Medium body that has a somewhat creamy texture. Superb carbonation with an effervescent burst in the middle and a nice prickly finish.
The flavor profile is very good. Reasonably intense, slightly complex and very well balanced. It begins with a slightly charred caramel that is more nutty than sweet. The middle brings a mild earthy hop bitterness and flavor. Underneath is the strongest caramel appearance. The finish is a slow fade of the above coupled with a subtle tart fruit note.

1.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nicely persistent foam. The aroma is weak, but suggests malt and a little fruit. Mouth feeling is tingling due to much carbon dioxide, but the taste does not fail immediately something. It has a tart fruity filling allowing only sporadic touches of caramel malt. Hop bitterness is intrusive. I think the hops are a little too dominant.

This is not a good beer. The best thing about it is the label. Malt is weak as are the hops. It’s like drinking weak coffee. No bite, no complexity. I would have poured it out but I was on a train.
