Lots of sweetcaramel malt go along with some floaral hops from this rich copper coloured beer. Nice malty toffee flavours with a good medium mouthfeel and lingering finish. Solid.

As respectable as a lager gets, and that’s finally saying a lot. Take this one seriously, beer lovers. I don’t think I have any deScriptive notes to add over and above the others.

Dark amber with a small off white head...wonderful sweet malty, carmel, and toffee aroma. Smooth and sweet body of malt and carmel....very drinkable and well balanced, not overtly sweet. Great everyday brew.

Thanks to slikwily for this one. Pours cloudy copper to an ambered brown with a small light brown rocky head. Sweet malted barley with sugary notes and a hoppy nose with vanilla hints. Warm and sweet creamy caramel flavor greets your tonue with the first draw and leaves you with a creamy hoppiness. Medium-bodied and creamy/fizzy palate.

Beautiful amber color, malty nose, pleasant enough malt taste, characteristic of this style, maybe a little fuller and sweeter than others
