Draft @ Brickskeller. Pours a clear orange color; thick, creamy white head with great retention and glistening lacing that coats the glass; great pour. Very fruity, spritzy aroma: raspberries (surprisingly), red fruits, light maltiness; fruity and lightly hopped. Light carbonation. Medium mouthfeel: red fruits, touches of pitty raspberries / raspberry syrup, and some basic candy maltiness; undercarbonated and underhopped, at least for what I’d like to see from an amber / vienna. Medium finish: toasty malts, red fruits, and wet malts; quite toasty end.

Most recently had this one on tap at Gingerman, but have had this one from kegs in the back yard as well. Pours a dark amber with 1/4 inch of off white head. I love the deep medium dark color of this beer. The aroma is of woody malt and slightly citrus hops. The flavors are very clean and crisp, with layers of oak, citrus, smoke and dark fruits all easily discernable. The hops are well balanced in this brew but I’ve had a few in the past with a sour/astringent hop after taste.

A cloudy amber pour, almost no head. Refreshing aroma of strong sweet malt. Smells better than it tastes. The flavor is like slightly sour malt and strong spicy hops. Average lacing on the glass. Consistency is like juice and the finish is nice.

Sweet oak aroma some orange zest, and smoked malts. Pours a dark orange/amber brown, thin soapy head. Oak, pine, tiny bit of hickory and toasted malts in the finish. Palate is smooth but a bit bland in the finish. Meh.

On tap at Flying Saucer. Has an amber/orange color with a medium white head. Has a good balance of hop and malt on the nose. Good lacing on the glass. The taste is a very smooth tangerine and a bitter finish. Enjoyed this one.

Rarely do American brewers devise ways to develop lager styles. Alog w/their pilz, this has got to be the best lager I have tasted from the U.S. Draught. Orange & plum aroma. Deep amber pour. Slight malty sweetness, with complex flavor patterns (apricot, almond, pie crust) & great hops balance. Really worth drinking more!

On draught at Posse East in Austin. This is my regular go-to beer at this location. Pours transparent amber. Nice malty balance with a very smooth finish. Can drink several, so makes a nice session beer in my opinion. Seems stronger than most lagers but without published alcohol content, cannot confirm this. Goes nice with a Posse burger basket!!

Pint glass at Opal Devine’s- very little head, aroma of malt, perfect amber color in appearance. Hits the mouth with a medium body, a note of sweetness to start, hops on the middle and finish, which is mildly bitter and frank. A beer that made me crave a smoke while I drank it, which is very hard to do! Bottle and sell it damn it!

Very complex flavors going on here. Quite malty with some sweetness coming through from that, but also tastes a bit like port. There is definitely a fruit wine taste as well. Very enjoyable and original. On tap.
