COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This amber Austrian lager has a distinct bready malt aroma and flavor followed by a crisp clean finish typical of lager styles. The nose also shows plenty of the spicy hop aroma contributed by the use of Saaz hops. Winner of a Bronze medal at the 1999 GABF.

GodOfThunder (1247) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAY 16, 2010
Draft at Iron Hill Maple Shade. Better than your average red ale. None of the trite cardboard flavors would would expect. Some grain and light maltiness. Not a bad easy drinking red with some nobel hops lingering.

willblake (2653) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - FEB 15, 2010
20100215 tap at Newark spot. Not sure how I’ve not rated this before because I get a pint pretty much every time I go to an Iron Hill. Nice teak red color with lacing off white head. Aroma is dark bread, baked beans, grass mulch and mixed earthy hops. Light bodied with airy eff and a cleansing tickle. Soft sweet bready Malta but not at all cloying. Some slight peppery, pretzely, and briny notes. Very nice, clean, well done session beer that should be an example to so many brewpubs trotting out weak interpretations of approachable styles and calling them craft. Well done Iron Hill.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2009
Served on tap at the Maple Shade location. Pours a dark golden yellow color with some subtle burnt orange hues but it’s not red at all. Kind of a misleading name for the beer. Half finger frothy white head that quickly fades into a lasting ring. Not much in the way of lacing. Bland aroma with some toasty biscuit malt, subtle hops and earthy grass notes. Fuller bodied than expected with some nice toasted malt, biscuit and subtle spiciness. Nice crisp hop presence balances things out pretty nicely. Slightly dry finish. Well balanced easy drinking session beer.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - OCT 9, 2009
On tap @ Iron Hill Wilmington. Clear amber with a tiny off white head. Biscuit aroma with a light amount of spicy hop scents. Sweet and malty with just a touch of hop bitterness. Medium body with active carbonation and a clean crisp finish. Good for the style.

From the Jug at the GABF Colorado Convention Center, Denver 11/10/2008 Floral aroma. Some carbonation. Golden coloured and smooth on the palate. A little dryness in a crisp and creamy malt finish.
