The color was a crisp amber with a thin, white, and fizzy head. The aroma was sweet, acidic, and fruit. the flavor was spiced and fruity. The palate was very carbonated. The finish was clean.

Pours a hazy red with a one finger tan frothy head. The nose is grainy, sweet, definite lager character, caramel. The flavor is grainy, some grassy hop character, lightly sweet. Crisp mouthfeel. Not one I would do again.

Pours amber. Not too super. Not a fan of Rahr beers. A bit watery, nothing special. Have another? Pay me?

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. The pour was ruby and brown in color. Thin off-white head with minimal lacing. Corny, malty aroma with some underlying medicinal notes. The flavor was light sweet caramel and some hoppiness with that same medicinal flavor. Thin body. I didnít really care for it. I should have had a Bud Light Lime instead.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a deep amber color with a full light beige head and lots of carbonation that dies down after a minute. It has a sweet aroma that is slightly malty. Fairly carbonated and thin, but not a totally bad flavor. Iíd prefer a bit more character, but oh well. Not bad, but not great either. Doesnít stand out.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured into a Bobís í47 pint glass. Pours medium brown, slight reddish hue. Big thick creamy head sticks around. Smells of dark roast malt, coffee. Light on the palate. Thought it would be much more full tasting. Easy drinking with bitter aftertaste. Itís just too watery for my liking for this style. Itís not objectionable, but I sure as hell wouldnít go out of my way for this either.
