3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
pours a thickly chill-hazed orange-tinted red, with a fairly thin off-white head that collapses fairly quickly but sticks around as a collar, and laces a bit. sweet malty nose has caramel notes and a bit of fruit. nice enough, but not very "lager-y". flavor starts somewhat sweet and juicy, then finishes with a nice rush of spicy hoppiness. very round.
mellow beer - seems to be dominated by a caramel maltiness. good enough, but nothing terribly special. as it warms, some toffee notes become more dominant.

Bottle. Clear copper with white head. Aromas of caramel, biscuit, nuts. Flavors of caramel, biscuit, nuts, citrus. Balanced finish. Medium-thin body with round mouthfeel and moderate carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a bit lighter than I thought it would, and the malty aroma signals the taste to come. Caramel and toffee malt tastes dominate, with some whitebread toast flavor peaking near the finish. Immeadiately after this toast flavor, the hops start to shine with a mellow bitterness that nicely rounds off the beer. Body is wet and light, but this seems to work well for the taste.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle - Has an almost weird poop brown cloudy color to it with a constant stream of bubbles and no head. The smell reminds me of my grandfathers dairy farm, no only hay and malt but the barn comes to mind too. As for the taste, rather plain and boring. Lots of malt on the palate and no hops. For my tastes not a good choice, lacks character and depth.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light toasty, slightly grassy scent. Taste is light but flavorful. Toasty malts with a very nice yet faint hop flavor. Very refreshing and tasty, easy to drink.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. An unclear orange beer with no head. The aroma is quite light, but what is there is sweet and acidic, with light notes of caramel. The flavor is also a combination of sweetness and light acidity, combined with notes of hops. Nothing special.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark riddish-orange hue. Decent head and adequate lacing. Aroma is of caramel malt with some honey mixed in for good measure. Nice balancing of hoppiness on the palate. Clean aftertaste leaving just enough sweetness on the finish. Crisp as a good lager should be. Would make a good breakfast beer. One of their better beers, but not anything very interesting. Ordinary, but not bad.

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

An all malt masterpiece! Very smooth flavor and dangerously drinkable.. A real man’s session beer right here!

Straight from my birthday keg. Wow -- when they say "a generous amount of caramel malt" they aren’t kidding. Aroma is heavy caramel malt. Rich, mouth-coating malty flavor goodness. Very smooth and full, with hops lingering at the end, giving a slightly metallic finish along with tickling, light carbonation. This beer tastes as it looks -- full, rich, and caramelly in a beautiful amber liquid.
