A little hoppy, but not much depth, seems thin. Aroma lacks, but has smooth and malty tones throughout. Excellent complex finish with a sweet aftertaste. Warm.

In the 12 oz. can during a NWA flight. Reddish amber in color. Nice fluffy head, but lacing was poor in the crappy airline plastic cup. I think this is essentially a Vienna-style ale with a fairly decent malty backbone.

Rich gold color with small head. Muted roasted malt nose. Med weight with a sweet to drying finish. Old malt flavors some roasted notes and faint cherry quality. Eh!

Not bad! Imagine my surprise of having this on a recent Northwest flight. Maybe it’s because NWA has a hub in MN. Anyhow, a bit of malty flavor and really nice. It hit the spot and I had it in a can! Give it a try.

Bottle pours a nice amber color with a decent head and no lace. The aroma is of slight hops. The flavor is slightly yeasty, malty, and a minor hop finish with a rather thin body. Overall, fair...

I really enjoyed this one. There was a nice fluffly head, and the colour was a very sparkling clear copper type colour. The flavour was good, nice and malty with an excellent hop finish. Honestly the best of it’s category I’ve had so far.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Copper in appearance. A bit of head and a few spots of lace. Nose is very malty and slightly dusty. Overly sweet, sticky and a bit flat. I must say I am not digging this, not in the least.

A hazy dark orange beer with a fine collapsing and lazing orange head. The nose is of oranges, yeast, malt, and hints of hops. The flavor is of oranges, yeast, caramel, malt, aroma hops, and slight touches of bitter hops giving it a dry end. Surprisingly yeasty.

Looks good in the glass. Dark amber color with a decent head. Pretty average flavor and aroma. This would be a good winter time session lager.

UPDATED: JUL 18, 2006 Had this one on my Northwest flight to Hawaii the other month. Poured an Amber color with a smaller head. Malty caramel tastes with a light hoppy finish.
Re-rate from 12oz bottle. Poured a medium amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Aromas of grain, and caramel. Tastes of caramel, grain and some hops. Thin body.
