22oz bottle. clear bronze under a medium sized white head but loses life after awhile. zesty malt aroma with some peppery hops. flavor has notes of peppery hops, corn tortillas. palate is light with dry finish. low carbonation. been a real long time since i’ve tried this style. this beer has a sense of quality throughout. enjoyable.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2010
Enjoyed from a 22oz bomber in an English pint glass. The beer pours a burnished amber color, with a small and short-lived head. The nose gives hints of Munich malt, along with a touch of pine. A bit more from either department would have gone a long way toward adding some complexity or depth. The palate is malty without being overbearing. Munich, with a recognizable but pleasant base of pilsner. Hops provide balance, but without enough assertiveness to evidence any particular variety. The finish is slightly malty and crisp. Overall, a refreshing and subtely flavored lager that has more character than many other breweries’ attempts at central European styles.

7/10/10. Bomber on the beach, mmmm. A nice light, beery aroma with some caramel and a dash of tinny. The flavor delivers a darker bitter pow with some spicy hop lingering in there as well. Really not bad, good session brew.

Tap at Barcade: Hazy amber tan head. Clean toasted malt aroma. Rounded body with smooth carbonation. Nice dry flavor with a clean toasted malt profile. .Mildly peppery back. A nice session.

auerbrau (3182) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - JUL 8, 2010
22oz Bottle, purchased at Bottles - Providence, RI. Opens with a mild malty nose, clean and crisp. Pours a darker red-brown than I expect, clear with a tall foamy head. Flavors are fine, clean fresh maltiness, somewhere between and amber and a brown, nice nuanced german-style maltings. Some subtle crispness to the texture, minimal hop flavor. This is fine. I guess I was expecting a yeasty pilsner-like beer, but got something like a clean, but plain, altbier. It’s drinkable.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 6, 2010
Multiple fresh draft pints at Redlight Redlight. Pours primarily a clear, golden to rusty amber color with a small head of smooth, off-white foam. Wet splotches of lacing mark the glass. The nose is fresh and bready, showing notes of toasted grains and semi-sweet dough, hinting at a bit of honey, with a smattering of peppery, floral hops. Likewise, flavors are easy going and nicely balanced. Spicy, lightly grassy-floral hop bitterness plays the counterpoint to the doughy, toasty, cereal grain and bread notes. There is a touch of honeyed sweetness that smooths everything together quite nicely. The palate allows for easy sessioning, sporting a medium-light body and lively, but soft and controlled carbonation. Finishes semi-dry and refreshing. Though this doesn’t measure up to some of the more notable examples, it’s still a damn tasty brew that drinks like a dream on a hot summer day. Good stuff.

draft @ redlight redlight. Caramel malts with sweet bread and sweet spicy grass notes. Pours a rich amber with a thick white head. Smooth, sweet malts with spicy earthy hops with hints of grass and pine. Excellent session beer!!!! Tastes very fresh too!

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2011 Lucent copper, thin beige head, medium-light body, soft carbonation but not at all flat.

Aroma: mineraly, drying leafy hops, caramelized malts.

Taste: lots of sweet pretzely malt, a distinct caramelized malt note, a hint of tabacco leaf hop character, and a bit of astringency.

Has a steinbierish note that reminds me of Olde Burneside ales. Subtly good beer.
