Bottle; Pour is murky dark golden brown with a fine bubbled khaki head in this glass; mild retention, mild lacing as well. The nose is fruity, nutty, caramel notes I suppose. The flavor profile is apple skins, caramel, bread, roastiness... and a general feeling of mediocrity to me.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy amber-brown with a very small white ring of bubbles. The aroma is mostly Elmers glue with some caramel, metallic and sour notes. The flavor is very light caramel with some sour tang on the finish. Very light, watery body with moderately fizzy carbonation. Perhaps this one is old since I got it out of a single cooler, but still doesn’t have much in the way of flavor.

On Tap. Pours a copper red hue, decent head, but dissipated quickly, some nice lacing though. Aroma is very light mix of roast malt and hops. An easy drinker, but not very complex. A rich man’s Killians Red.

3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours to a caramel-red color with a thin-medium creamy head. Smells nutty and hoppy. The best part of this beer is how it goes down. I was expecting an oaky-ness from the aromas, but was surprised by a more subtle hint of caramel flavors with a refreshing end. VERY smooth. Bought the Auburn Lager in Auburn, IN and it is a decent beer that accents the feel of the region.
