COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Special hop characteristics are brought out through a process called "dry-hopping", wher raw hops are added directly to the lagering brew. Experience this smooth blend of slightly sweet malt flavors balanced by the full taste and aroma of the renowned Hallertau hop.

Narnad (1448) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - OCT 22, 2008
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.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 4, 2008
Pours an attractive deep reddish brown coloured body with a small white head. A nice, prevalent moderately hopped mouthfeel. It has aromas of oak, earth and licorice. Flavors of caramel, ripe apples and cinnamon.

pepsican (1438) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - MAR 20, 2008
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.

gws57 (1274) - Saint Charles, Illinois, USA - FEB 5, 2008
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.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 18, 2007
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.

On tap at Romans Pub.Slight caramel malts and the faintest of hops was all I could detect aromawise,taste had some harsh malts with a Red sucker sweetness ,slightly bitter finish. Nitro didn’t make this anymore special. Good enough to session

prosqtor (408) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 29, 2007
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.
