3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Biscuity malt caramel nose and taste. Low carbonation minimal hops. Slightly spicy. Not the strongest tasting, a good session ale. Quite nice!
