tap at Wolfey’s in Elyria, Can’t really complain about this one, just your basic lager, with way too much sweetness, too much caramel malt too.. lagerheads get your act together.

Soft wheat metallic taste with a spice coriander middle that fades slowly. A Christmas ale light. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

Aroma: No aroma. Could be water. Appearance: Dark gold with minimal head. Taste: Medium sweetness throughout with hints of sourness in the finish. Palate: Light body, smooth texture, soft carbonation, slightly sweet finish. Overall: Nicely balanced, but still a bit too malty for my taste. Paired well with the brewer’s BBQ sauce, though.

12oz bottle into Le Listermann - nose is nutty, leading me to think that the fact this beer was so cheap was because it was old. Regardless, I like the smell. Sip adds more nuttiness and I don’t think this typical for the style. It’s very malty and I lack the knowledge to figure out which one/ones. I’m curious as to the name of the beer: barnburner. Get some bread in the aftertaste and a slight hop kick but nothing close to 27 IBU’s which also leads me to think the is beer is old. To my surprise, this aged well. Looked for a date, but no go. I’m glad I tried it and would like to try a fresh one just to compare.

Pours a hazy copper with a medium white head. It has a very slight hops aroma with a slight hints of citrus. It has a medium sweetness with just a hint of bitter. It has light to medium body with a thin texture and very fizzy carbonation. This might be one of the best lagers I’ve ever had, and at 6% ABV it’s a great buy. I wish I could find it in my town seeing as how I’m from Ohio.

Bottle shared by DrSilverworm. Pours amber in color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor had some toasted biscuity malt, dry grass/hay, with some mild hops character. Pretty light overall.

Pours a cloudy amber color with a minimal off-white head. Aroma of sweet grain. Flavor of sweet malt, light toasted malts and some earthy bitterness at the finish.

12 oz. bottle shared by DrSilverworm- thanks again, Chris! Pours a clear orange-gold with a tiny head. Aroma of biscuity malts, leaves, and straw. Flavor is the same. Not much to it. Light-bodied, with low carbonation and a malty, dry mouthfeel. Gets the job done for what it is.

12oz bottle from And Beer in Athens, OH. Shared with local raters. Clear orange color. Thin, kind of bubbly white head. Nice decent spread of lace. Toasty malt aroma. Caramel malts. Spicy flavors, light pepper, medium body. Kind of crisp, lighter carbonation, pretty dry finish. Sweet taste, moderate bitter. Pretty flavorful, full bodied lager. I like it.

Bottle to snifter (thanks DrSilverworm). Looks good; a hazy orange with thin off-white lacing. Smells doughy and hoppy with a good mouthfeel. Good beer.
