Bottle. Thanks to jeffc666 for this! Lovely copper body underneath a foamy tan head. Nose is caramel, sweet malts, light hoppiness, and light toffee. Very nice! Taste is nutty and hoppy with some earthy notes, light caramel and sweet malts. Body is medium with lots of carbonation feel to it. Finish is very nutty and malty. Light caramel, hoppy earthy notes, and almost a wood-like finish. Nice!

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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
