Nice malty, apricot aroma. At first I thought this was an amber ale (I didn’t look too closely at the label). As it warmed, however, it began to get an odd bitter, nutty, sweaty flavor that did not work for me. As amber lagers go, this is not bad.

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...

Bottle. Clean slightly sweet malt aroma with a touch of grass. Copper colored with a thin, mostly diminishing white head. Clean malty flavor with a light mouthfeel and a quick dry finish. Enough hops for balance without showing up in the flavor. Thin and easy to drink, kind of like a slightly less flavorful Point Classic Amber.

1FastSTi (3285) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 11, 2006
Bottle. The beer pours to a glowing orange body with a creamy off-white head. Nice visible carbonation and decent lacing. The aroma is malty and has that typical earthy toffee and grain sack qualities. Subtle hops. The flavor has tons of malty grains. Light buttery peanuts. Definitely has that Vienna lager quality to it. Light herbal hops.

Pour is a orange with a white head. Aroma is a bit of grainy malt with no hops present. Flavor is a toasted biscut with some lingering hops. Nothing to go out and find and not really in the horrible catagory but it does have some promise of being a good beer.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a crystal clear light amber color with a medium size diminishing white head. The aroma was sweet caramel malts with some grass and citrus notes as well. The flavor is essentially all malts, sweet caramel, with artificial tasting vanilla present as well. Not much in the way of hops. Syrupy yet the mouthfeel is rather light. Drinkable, but nothing special.

BVery (5618) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - FEB 12, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2013 Tap. Mostly clear amber pour with a clingy white head. Pretty simple aroma and flavor of caramel malt and mild hop. Okay.

Malty, light bodied, somewhat fruity. But thats about it. Very mediocre beer.

Bottle - small foamy head, medium amber color, sweet malty/caramel aroma and flavor, very mild hop balance - pretty standard amber lager
