TheBeerGod909 (43) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 9, 2008
Pours with a moderate off-white head. Aroma is also moderate, but inviting. Flavor is slightly hoppy, almost as robust as a weak IPA. Not a bad beer.

This was a decent red it was smooth, not very hoppy and finished very smooth. I really think was a good beer to enjoy multiple beers of this. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at brewery. Slightly toasty aroma, clean and with very low noble hops. Clear dark amber under white wisps. Clean, light flavour with some lightly toasted nuts and moderate bitterness and a light, zesty hops note. Crisp and light body, medium carbonation.

superspak (4220) - Michigan, USA - MAR 7, 2016
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, best before 4/4/2016. Pours crystal clear reddish copper color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Muted aromas of brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Has a metallic note in the nose at first, that diminishes in the glass over time. Okay aromas with balanced bready malt and earthy hop notes; with very poor strength. Taste of brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, floral, light pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of brown sugar, brown bread, toasted biscuit, light nuttiness, herbal, floral, grass, light pepper, and yeast/toasted earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Good robustness and balance of bready malt and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from carbonation and bitterness as well. Fairly clean on lager flavors with minimal yeast ester notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately grainy/bready, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.9%. Overall this is a pretty solid Vienna lager. A bit weak/off in the aromas; but has some good robustness and balance of bready malt and earthy hop flavors; and is very smooth and easy to drink. A fairly enjoyable offering.

Carlisle (357) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2016
Draft. Pours reddish-copper with beige head and substantial lacing. Sweet caramel malt aroma with subtle cherry note. Caramel with corn sweetness. Thin mouthfeel but a sweet long finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12/24/15 Chicago (12 oz bottle poured into a standard pint glass). Red amber colour with minimal white head. Minimal carbonation, with a slight smell and taste of malt. Light texture and easy going down. Overall OK offering.

A week aroma of grain, pours a clear reddish color with a lasting thin white head. Taste of grain with a watery feel and weak grain finish.

Atom (2036) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 22, 2015
12oz bottle pours a bright amber/orange with a large cream colored head. Smells like a watered down red tootsie pop. Watered down caramel malt with some light but distinct hop bitterness. I’ve had worse, better believe I’ve had better.

Bought a six pack up north. Not a good or bad amber lager. Wouldn’t get it again but they were ok.
