Nice red colored lager with a creamy thick head. Taste is lacking and I really like red lagers.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 14, 2004
Dark red with a good head. Malty-sweet aroma. Hints of brown sugar, but not much else. Mild, with a thin body and no aftertaste. Looks good, but not really interesting.

A decent lager, but nothing spectacular. Light redish color with a slim head. Malty aroma. Kind of interesting malty taste. Nothing really stood out with this beer. Had this on tap at Barley's in Knoxville, TN.

Draught. Good flavor just not enough of it. A light version of an amber-like lager. The finish is fairly crisp, and there is a fairly decent hop aroma.

suprchunk (2960) - Crestview, Florida, USA - APR 21, 2011
Pours a dark amber with a small white head. No lacing on my clean glass. Smells metallic and malty. A little bit of corn, sugar and cabbage. Same in the taste with a bit more in the malt. Slight bitterness mixed with a nice sweetness in the palate. Not a bad beer. Just expected a lot more for a lager, especially one with such a low abv.

Bottle. Pours amber. Aroma of caramel, nuts. Mild sweet flavor. Not bad overall.

Sweet aroma and dirty yellow pour with a strong malt backbone and lingering mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
