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.

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.

foyle (234) - 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 (378) - 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.

Huhzubendah (2498) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 26, 2014
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.

355ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique 170513. Big bold amber colour with a cracking head that settles to an even layer of foam. Clear in the glass with caramel, biscuit and malt aromas. Full bodied with a creamy smooth mouthfeel.

Biscuity malt caramel nose and taste. Low carbonation minimal hops. Slightly spicy. Not the strongest tasting, a good session ale. Quite nice!
