Pour is a deep red color with a small off white head and lots of lacing. There’s a bready malt character up front on the nose, a touch of dark fruit, and plenty of malty notes too. Slight floral hop taste and a bit of dark fruit, light caramel, toasty malt and s dry finish. Well rounded, easy drinking.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap: Solid amber with mild clarity, just a touch of haze towards the centers. Light beige head that doesn’t last too long or leave much lacing in its wake. Crisp aroma with light fruit, berries, apple skin, toasted caramel, milled grains, & a moderately floral, borderline botanical underbody to support it all. Just like the aroma, very crisp on the palate. Amplified toastiness of the grain bill & a strong Vienna malt sweetness that leans towards toffee/caramel but doesn’t quite reach the sucrose requirements. Hints of raisin, apple, & flowers. Earthy hop profile (almost Engilsh-style) leads into a lasting biscuit malt & yeasty finish. This is a good lager.

Bottle at home. Pours a clear reddish amber with minimal head. Aroma is caramel and malt. Very full flavor with toffee and caramel and slight hop bitterness. Somewhat sweet but finishes clean. Nice beer.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Clear dark amber with creamy head. Caramel, toffee, whatever that stale old barleywine flavor I always think of as caramel prunes. Taste follows, along with copper and cola. Finish is lightly bitter, but otherwise pretty sweet. Light body, lively carbonation. Overall: this doesn’t really work for me.

Very middle of the road but good. A good solid offering from a good brewer. I like the ease in which this brew goes down. Enjoyable.

I thought I rated this beer. I have had this beer several times and think its really good. Reminds me of boston lager with more malt and somewhat sweeter. Has nice body and goes down smooth.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange-tinted amber in the pour is nice to look at and it provides a smooth and relatively heavy mouthfeel, otherwise nothing really special here. Grainy malts and maybe a touch too sweet.
