Nickls (1883) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 17, 2011
Tap. Light clearer gold color with a pure white fluffy head. Citrus-like hop notes, some maltiness, and a bit of sweetness in the aroma. Comes off almost like a hoppy malt liquor with the toffee and sweet caramel notes married with a fairly substantial hop presence. Medium body with decent carbonation.

ben4321 (4092) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 19, 2011
Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 6/10/11

Aroma: The nose is fairly light, it has some spice, grass, caramel, and bready notes
Appearance: It pours a golden color with a somewhat fizzy white head
Flavor: The taste is medium sweet with a yeasty presence and a spice hop
Palate: The body is fairly light, it drinks reasonably crisply, and goes down easily
Overall Impression: Overall, I found this one to be a solid lager. It wouldn’t be something that you would describe as really exciting, but it isn’t bad either. A pretty decent example of the style.

radagast83 (5038) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JUN 24, 2011
Draft at Brewpub. Poured a copper color with a small white bubbly head. Aroma was grains, light malts, caramel notes. Flavor was caramel, light sweet malts, grain, hops. Perhaps not the best one they make, but highly drinkable, with an alcohol content that is quite hidden for what it is.
