3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
I like this beer. I was hesitant because I associate the term "lager" with the crappy domestic beers that you buy at gas stations.
I was pleasantly surprised buy this beer. The full body of roasted malts and the barley really compliment each other. The aroma smells of caramel, malt and barely. Color is a dark amber and head is a whitish to slightly tan. All in all will but this beer again.

Draft. Dark amber brown with a low head. Smells sweet of hops, some toasted malt smell. Bitter crisp taste. Light/medium pallate with a chewy syrup finish.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Slight malt aroma. Nothing special here. Red amber in color with a frothy white head. Nice honest caramel malt flavor up front. No ending. Nothing. A slight frothy mouth feel with a syrupy ending. Syrupy to the bottom of the glass. A so-so-beer. Ho-hum

Had on draft at the Revere Tavern in Delafield, WI. Came in a traditional 16oz Irish glass. Amber shade with a small white head. This is a great beer for malt lovers. Has a nice crisp finish. Overall very enjoyable.

Pours a very pretty amber with a nice big off-white head. Aroma is of malt, light fruit. Flavor has a great apple taste to it. Very refreshing, easy to drink. Would take another in an instant.

Bottle Pour a amber-copper body with a small off-white head and litle lacing. Has a fruity, banana. Lightly sweet, maltiness is present to begin. then becomes a little roastier. A lightly dry, more bitter hoppiness is present towards the end. A pretty good brew.

Pint at soblemans in milwaukee. Awesome color, as vienna’s do. I think this may be one of the best lagers i have ever had. Great bitter taste, not a hoppy bitter but still good. Really good mouth feel. Definitely would get again, probably one of lakefronts best beers.

This had a nice smooth flavor. A carmal taste that went down easy. It was slightly on the watery side and could have used a bit more hops.
