This is a pretty tasty malt-centric lager. It’s maybe a little sweeter than it should be but it does at least have solid malt taste to back it up. It’s amber in the glass w/ a small white head. It has maybe a touch of earthy hops but it’s all about the toasty, nutty, caramel type malt flavors. This particular combination of flavors, to me, brings to mind a bitter as much as any lager--and that is not necessarily a bad thing. It is full bodied w/ mild but still slightly prickly carbonation and finishes w/ some lingering honey-like sweetness, some iced-tea astringent notes and a touch of bitterness. If this was a little more dry, it’d be a great beer. As it is, it is worth drinking but nothing special.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
355ml bottle into a "perfect pint" glass. Ligher amber color and a frothy white head. It has a really odd wine aroma, its also booze perfumey like an eastern euro strong lager, some rubber and sweet fruity caramels. The flavor doesn’t provide much, light herbal hops, firm but light bitterness, gentle malts, quite dry and minerally.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Aroma is honey, brown sugar, and sweet. Clear and dark orange color from 12oz bottle at home. Taste is sweet, honey, maple, and sugary. Just not a pleasant beer in my opinion. I don’t like ambers much but acn appreciate a lot of them, but not this one.
