COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A red lager with a caramel malt backbone presenting an awesome toasty flavor, finishing with a slight sting on the palate of medicinal hops.

Pours an attractive orange copper with thin off-white head that dissipates quickly but leaves some lcaing. Nose is bread, toast, a bit of caramel malt. The taste is equally straightforward, with just a hint of apple before a bit of hop bitterness on the end. "Grapefruit" is normally an insult to grapefruits everywhere, a code word for mouth puckering, but here it is restrained, just a clean, sharp end. This is a simple but likeable brew, with a fresh taste and ABV low enough for a session

on tap a while back at Santucci’s - Very good. Tasted more like an APA than a lager. Also had a little sweetness/fruitiness in there that was unexpected.

Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Lighter sweet malts, light toasted bready notes, and a touch of bitterness. Drinkable.

Can. Nose isn’t really sweet, has toasted and caramel malt (sort of stale-smelling) wit a touch of herbal hops. Pours hazy amber (reddish-golden) with a tight, soapy beige head that does eventually get around to peaks and valleys. Medium body malty and a bit cloying, some pleasant depth with sunny bock character, spice, caramel, wood; even has that slight sickly character found in many a Maibock. Hops are herbal and lightly medicinal, a bit gummy, but generally stay out of the way. It’s well-made and well-conceived, and fresh and clean, but something about the malt construction is putting me off and I think for good; the very strong sweetness actually helps with that but the sort of dirty stale toasting does not appeal.

kramer (5173) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2014
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.

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.

Can from GE. Pours clear, clean orange with yellow hues and huge, pillowy white head. Wet grain and bread nose. Grain and bread and caramel and a bit of chocolate, a touch of lingering bitterness, but not bad.

Can, thanks to Dave. Pours out an attractive, darker amber color with a small white head. Aroma is of sticky caramel, cereal malts, light grass and some bread. Taste is lots of sweet grainy, caramel malts, slightly toasted bread, dishwater, odd metallic notes. eh....

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

Pour is dark hazed copper with a good bit of tight light tan head and a thick lacing. Nose is heavy caramel and grainy malt. A bit doughy, faint herbal hops. Taste is sweeter, more caramel, a bit less grainy. Chewy stale malts, herbal hops, moderate bitterness.
