3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
DATE TASTED: November 16, 2013... GLASSWARE: Sam Adams lager glass... OCCASION: TWO rates in one night--feeling good!... APPEARANCE: solid orange amber body; pours a Santa’s beard-white head, frothy and thick; lacing is sporadic but significant... AROMA: malty and confidently so...pleasant hint of caramel, candied sugars and faint hints of floral hops... PALATE: somewhat smooth; simply a slick, aptly medium-bodied presence with a lingering aftertaste...TASTE: indeed malty; borderline dunkel/doppelbock base; flat, singular effect...OVERALL: caught off-guard by the five-finger malt punch this brew delivers; liking the eight-beer mix pack Lakefront puts out more and more; not a standout but one that pairs well with rainy November nights like this...

12 oz bottle from the sampler case. This is an above average amber lager but it still reminds me of drinking something artificial in its redness. Don’t let that dissuade you from trying it yourself.

This one is light biscuit up front, a candy sweet middle, and a barnyard aftertaste.

Went to a great steak house with no good beer. I had to settle for this. Not my style of beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear amber lager. Roasty and sweet Aroma and taste. Well balanced and malty, the hops do help cut through some of the malt. Refreshing and crisp like a lager. Slightly spicy

12 oz bottle from J J Liquors in Edgewater. Clear amber appearance with red hues and a beige head. Clean, malty, smooth and rich with notes of toasted grain, light caramel, toffee and bread. Solid, easy drinking amber lager overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy amber-orange with many fine particles and a decent khaki-cream head that leaves some soapy, stringy lace. Nose involves toasted malt, lightly metallic lager yeast, some noble hop spice and light pine. Pretty sweet, fairly bitter. Medium bodied, oily, active, with a toasty lager finish. Nice amber lager.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, best before 11/19/2015. Pours slightly hazy reddish copper color with a 1 finger dense off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a good amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of caramel, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, light lemon/orange zest, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance of dark/bready malt and citrus/earthy hop notes; with good strength. Taste of caramel, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, light lemon/orange zest, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Light-moderate dryness after the finish. Very nice robustness and balance of dark/bready malt and citrus/earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors with minimal yeast ester notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and fairly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice Vienna lager style. All around good robustness and balance of dark/bready malt and citrus/earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Was hoping I stumbled on a true Stein beer but alas, just a play on words....such is life....pours a cream soda brown color with a pillowy head which lingers.....aroma of very little, slight malt sweetness....taste is hay, sweet grass stalks, tails off into slight metallic finish. Not crazy about this one.

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.

Nice amber that has a bit of alcohol. Unlike the fixed beer this one doesn't have red malts, just amber.
