3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours a clear light copper body under a small fizzy off-white head that left a bit of lacing. The nose is toasty and caramel maltiness with just a light hint of floral hoppiness, smells pretty clean and well lagered. The flavor is pretty decent, fairly dry with some clean toasted malt up front. A little snap of bitterness on the finish from the hops. Light bodied with a clean crisp finish and soft fizzy carbonation. Pretty decent lager.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Transfer from BA review on 1-14-14-
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – The beer is served a clear orange-amber color with a small head of off-white color. The head fades very fast, leaving only a trace of lace on the sides of the glass and a persistent foam on the surface of the brew.
Smell – The aroma of surprisingly strong with a big toasted bready smell mixed with a moderately strong caramel sweetness. Along with these aromas are some lighter hints of some lighter fruits as well as a bit of grass and grapefruit hop.
Taste – The taste begins with the sweet caramel and the toasted bready taste that were detected in the nose. These two flavors create a base for the beer lasting throughout the entire taste. Some lighter fruit flavors of apple develop more toward the middle of the taste. This apple is very light, but is accompanied by a moderate grainy taste. Some grass and grapefruit hop flavors later come to the tongue at the end, combining with the rest to produce a lightly hopped, sweeter bready taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the thinner to average side with a carbonation level that is rather average. Overall the feel was pretty good as it matched well the sweeter caramel and fruit flavors of the brew in its more light feel, all while not being too thin or highly carbonation to support bready and hopped flavors of the brew.
Overall – A rather refreshing and quite flavorful lager. Very drinkable.

They call it a red lager but it pours more golden with no head. Very undistinguished taste lots of maltiness overwhelms. The medicinal hops they advertise show up nowhere in the finish
