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.

Pours like a glass of iced tea, with a frothy, disintegrating head. Nice whiffs of biscuity malt, honey, almond, and tangy Cascades. Startling complexity for a lager, with different aspects of this beer calling for attention at each sip. Seems to defy categorization, sometimes like a bitter, sometimes like an Oktoberfest, maybe even an APA? This rating is for the superb bottled version, but it is even better on draft in Milwaukee. Also, a very neat, colorful label; in fact, one of my favorites in recent memory.

MaltOne (199) - Wisconsin, USA - FEB 14, 2013
Aroma is slightly yeasty and caramel. Pours reddish amber. Pillowy white head, that recedes to an outer ring. Flavor is a lightly roasted malt center with dry, slightly spicey (cloves, resin) finish. Medium light body. Very drinkable, nicely balanced.

PhillyHomeBrew (176) - Forest Hills, New York, USA - JAN 4, 2008
This beer is a clear amber filtered product with a quickly fleeting head. The aroma is has a bit of apple scent, but not much. It does not have a very strong flavor either, but the little flavor that it does have tastes like shredded wheat.

redmosquito (172) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - AUG 16, 2004
Dark copper in color, with little head. Malty aroma with a little yeast in the background. Good bitterness yet still malty. This is a beer I could drink all night.

brewolf (169) - Wilderness, WA, USA, - JUN 6, 2012
Translucent amber with a minimal tan head. Toffee, apple blossom, and mild herbal hops in the nose. Taste is only lightly sweet with just enough hops to cut through and clean things up. Light body, medium thin texture. The apple/fruit notes don’t fit the lager description, but the mellow, herbal hopping comes across distinctly ’German’ to me. Feels like a ’Vienna-Bock’ or amber bock. Simple, malt forward, and tasty. Thanks, Matt.

I’m not very familier with this stye of beer. That said, I’m not sure I’d make it a regular part of the rotation. That’s not say it was bad, it poured a nice dark copper color and had plenty of malty flavor, it just seemed pretty average. Worth another shot down the road though.

Orange-brown lager that’s lighter than it looks. Caramel mostly, minimal hops. A bit burnt in the aftertaste, though not unpleasantly so. Iffy echoes of cheapness persist, though that may be simply memories of inferior lagers coming to the fore.

Reminds me of beers from Sierra Nevada. Floral note on the aroma. Although it is an all malt lager it tastes to me of hoppy notes, maybe just imagined.
