3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - Bitter roasted malts. Clear amber with a thin head. Very malt forward, with enough bitterness to cut the cloying sweetness. Bit of spice and hops in the finish. Not my style, but I can appreciate this for what it is.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a translucent amber with a 5mm of off-white foam head that diminished quickly to a collar that laced poorly. Carbonation very high and fine. Aroma subtly of sweet caramel malt. Taste bland with some sweet caramel and a hint of hops bitterness. Light body, a bit thin. Light, smooth, sweetness, a hint of bitterness but fairly bland.

"i was intrigued by the premise of this all malt amber lager, but it was another miss. slight fart character to the aroma (nice, no?). the flavor was unique, but not good enough to make up for the otherwise unimpressive beer."

Aroma: sweet caramel, bread dough, a hint of pine and citrus
Mouthfeel: light to medium bodied, frothy, with a quite dry finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap, poured into a sampler glass. The aroma is toast, caramel, juicy orange, and a touch of nuts. It pours a bright, clear amber color with a soft and creamy white head that retains a thick ring with a spattering of head skimming the surface. It leaves an ok lace. It’s a medium sweet with a light bitterness. The texture is oily with a medium body and a good amount of soft carbonation. It finishes with caramel, nuts, and orange blossoms and leaves a mild, malty, toasted bread aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at our hotel in Milwaukee.
The beer is dark copper with a mild haze and sports a half inch off off-white head. The aroma bring caramel malt, bread, grain, a hint of sweetness and mild alcohol. Perhaps a touch of citrus in the flavor with a light bitterness in the finish. Pretty drinkable, though the beer itself is rather bland and uneventful. Ok...

Thanks to Henshawb for this. Poured a clear copper color with almost no head that disappeared instantly. Nose has a slightly roasted maltiness and really not much else. Tastes fairly bland but this is the reason i dont drink too many lagers. Slight caramel but mostly a bland maltiness that leaves my realizing why i dont buy american lagers for the most part.
