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.
