UPDATED: JUL 7, 2003 This actually doesn't suck…
Okay, same old minimal megabrew head that disappears quickly, but there is a pleasant smell here. A decent slightly roasty taste and malty sweetness without the usual corny taste. I was not thrilled, but at least pleasantly surprised, and will have to give it above average marks for that. As I work my way through the "Leine's Lodge Tackle Box," I'm a little more hopeful than I was with their Berry Weiss.
<em>Tried the draft version, July 3.</em> Nothing that makes me want to change my vote up or down. Would have a bit more malty profile if it weren't poured into danged frozen glass. An improvement over what a "Miller Dark" would be.

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.

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.

Tap. Pours brown with orange hues, off-white head. Aroma is malty, bread, citrus. Taste is slightly nutty. Finishes dry. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ContemplateBeer (1823) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 27, 2014
Freebie from Aunt Linda’s fridge. Aroma: Lean caramel that tends toward bread; butterscotch is moderate and a bit obtrusive. Appearance: Red copper body with a foamy bone head that settles into a skin. Flavor: Lean caramel with metallic touches up front; butterscotch and more bread toward the finish. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, average carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: A fairly flawed, rather boring beer. Wouldn’t want to drink this again.

i gave this one time, but it just didn’t do anything for me. tasted like the better/not super offensive macros, really, just looked a little nicer. almost no nose (light malts) and the only flavor past a touch of sweet malt was a rather unpleasant bitterness on the finish. not at all impressed."

Far better than I remembered. Smooth and goes down like water. Downside is that it’s pretty watery.

A decent red/amber lager that sticks to the basic malt profile with slight hops flavor. Crisp and easy drinker. Boring compared to most "craft" brews but better than any plain yellow or watered down international-conglomerate made American Lager.

Tap. Pours brown with orange hues, off-white head. Aroma is very malty, bread, citrus. Taste is dirty, nutty. It is not very good. Stay away.
