COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The rich amber color and caramel flavor of this beer are derived from the generous amount of caramel malt in our recipe, with just a dash of roasted unmalted barley for a subtle toasted flavor in the background. The sweetness, body, and mouth feel tell you that this is an all-malt beer. The finish has a balanced edge of Willamen and Casade hoppiness which cuts through the malty character, leaving a clean palate which beckons for more. Note: the terminology of "stein" refers to the appropriate drinking vessel and not to a type of beer made with hot rocks.

Ferris (4751) - Burnaby, British Columbia, - FEB 3, 2013
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.

Draft. Clear Amber color with tan head; substantial lacing. Malty aroma. Toasted malt upfront with a finish with biscuit balanced by bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KeefOz (954) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - OCT 10, 2014
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."

[ Keg ][ 5oz ][ Lakefront ][ $1.50 ][ Plastic Cup ][ 8.18.14 ]
>> Clear deep orange pour, weak head. Nose is super sweet malt. Sugary taste, grenadine and sweet cherries, sticky, cloying, all sugar. Nope.

foyle (246) - Wyoming, USA - AUG 14, 2014
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass. Appearance: pours a thin off white head that recedes leaving some light lacing. Color is a rich, cloudy amber with abundant streaming carbonation. Aroma: sweet caramel, bread dough, a hint of pine and citrus Mouthfeel: light to medium bodied, frothy, with a quite dry finish. Flavor: caramel, butterscotch, raisins, toasted bread, with some herbal and citrus rind hops in the finish. Overall: very well done and enjoyable. Should pair well with many foods.

ARH (526) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 22, 2014
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.
