Thin off white head with fair retention and lace.Clear amber hued brew. Very mild nose, some grainy malts. Med/light body, decent carbonation, lil oily. Just some dry, grainy malt flavors, lil toasty, bready with a faint grassy note. Dry finish, clean and just ok. Vienna? Nahhh. Amber lager i,d take over yuengling any time. Bottle from statelineliquors.

Clear bronze appearance with an average size, short lived, off white head and a fair amount of lacing. Subtle, grainy, sweet malt aroma. Sweet caramel malt taste dominated until a modest amount of spicy hops popped up in the aftertaste. Medium bodied, decently carbonated mouthfeel. Bottle from State Line.

Draft at Moriartys. Dark honey orange brown with a foamy off-white head. Toasted wheat flavors. Somewhat vinous. Slight caramel sweetness in the middle, but finishes quite dry. Strong carbonation. Have not had this style often. Tastes like a mix of a Belgium Blonde, an Irish Red, and a German Oktoberfest.

I love a beer with good hops and full flavour and body. This satisfies my taste for a cold one. Not for fans of dishwater beers. I had it first on tap and liked it better than the cans. I think it’s my new favourite beer!

Had this at Church Picnic. Really a Red ale, plenty of malt and a good amount of hops. Nice color and head from the can.

- Wasn’t as great as I was expecting it to be.
- tastes like pine, but sweet aroma.
- Almost goes down like a malt.

Amber with small white head. Mild caramelly aroma. Taste - caramel malt, dry crackers and some earthiness. Medium bodied, mildly hopped and easy drinking. Better than I was expecting, but pretty average overall.

Good beer. That’s about it just a good beer. Slightly hoppy with a hint of spices.

I was able to enjoy this beer for the first time this week in Pittsburgh @ Houghh’s, a great local craft account. A very well balanced brew with an excellent choice of both Hops and Malts. My hat off to the 2 brewmasters. Not too bitter just right with dinner or to enjoy while watching the Steelers path to another Super Bowl

This brew was very disappointing. Bland, boring, and underachieving. My fist shall from hop city, maybe my last.
