UPDATED: MAY 18, 2009 Bottle from guyinchicago. pours a (shocker)copper color. Very malty on the nose. But along with the malt comes some aluminum foil notes...metallic is what I am trying to say. Flavor is malty, lagery and overall not that great. I am surprised to see the rating as high as it is.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle that starts out looking dingy gold and ends with a color that a generous observer might call copper (on some sort of limited color wheel). Head is a small film of tiny bubbles and aromas are grassy with some caramel and biscuit maltiness. Flavor is dominated by watered down biscuit with a bit of honey and a little bit of a grassy presence in the finish. It’s good enough, but kind of boring.

Bottle thanks to blutt59. Pours a hazy light amber with a white head. Aroma of some faint toasty notes and light maltiness. Flavor is the same as aroma with a little hop personality. Mouth feel is light bodied. Overall, not all that bad...

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Rich copper color with a little haze. Large off-white head is very frothy and long lasting. Grainy straw aroma has, at moments, some bright sourness underneath. Metallic flavors up front wane into a grainy wheat and sweet corniness that ultimately ends slightly sour and minerally. Not the best, but not terrible.

Bottle sample from STLWill (Thanks!) Orange/yellow pour with a metallic aroma. Flavor was that of any standard run of the mill lager, but finished a little bitter.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Hop Leaf, compared directly to another vienna-style lager, Eliot Ness from Great Lakes. This came out the loser. Clear copper amber, mediocre white head. Lightly fruity, and a little skunky/sweaty. Much thinner mouthfeel than the Eliot Ness. Mediocre at best.
