2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a copper color falling somewhat short of amber, with a dense, creamy white head that leaves a generous lace. Aroma is faint, and what’s there is off-putting, sharp and oxidized. Flavor is better, dominated by a heavy hops bill, floral, lemon, bits of grapefruit. Only light malts, pronounced vegetable finish. Medium bodied.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from the growler a very red-brown in color with a small thin white head. Aroma is a very earthy hoppiness with a bit of a sweet caramel malt scent. The hoppy earthy flavor hits the tongue first and is followed by a sweet caramel malt flavor. Slight bread taste to it as well. Overall an okay beer.

pours red with a thick white hear. Mild hop and malt aroma. Flavor is hoppy, everything beyond that tastes similar to a celery stick dunked in a margarita, not in a bad way. Finished creamy and smooth. This was very interesting.

Had this one on draught as part of a four-sampler at the brewpub in Madison, Wisconsin. Clear, dark copper pour with a thick, foamy off-white head, a light malty nose, mild and balanced, smooth but not much going on with this one.

On tap at the brewpub on 6/22/07: Pours a transparent amber bronze with a dense, creamy nitro head. Aroma of lightly sweet toasted malt and earthy hops is pretty subtle. Body starts fairly full with a nice light caramel sweetness balanced with some mildly earthy piny hops before a smooth, bittersweet finish. A pretty decent red lager.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a good lager beer. Pours heavy from the nitro tap at Roman’s, with a dark orange/red color and a creamy head that lasted for quite a while. Not a lot of aroma beyond some hops, and some less malt. Flavor is nice and mellow, and mouthfeel is smooth. A nice session beer.
