This is Rohrbach’s flagship lager. It is a light, well-balanced amber lager with a light malt flavor, and a crisp, clean hop finish.

Tap at the brewpub. Mostly clear golden almost color with a decent white head. Some bready pilsner comes through as well as a touch of fruitiness and light floral and spice. I think I get a touch of butterscotch but its not enough to distract too much. Decent lager.

Some have compared it to sam adams lager. I feel its a little bit more malty with a little bit more after taste. Good.

MacBoost (1775) - Penfield, New York, USA - APR 8, 2012
Pours a deep amber with little to no head, from a growler acquired from Wegmans, Penfield. Notes of caramel and spicy hops in the aroma. Taste is slightly sweet, malty and lightly bitter. This is much better than I expected.

Sample and eventual growler at Railroad St - Looking at the ratings I’m surprised this didn’t score higher. I literally got one of the first pours out of the first keg of the most recent batch, couldn’t be fresher. This probably made the difference. Wood like a Bock, not too much, and enough malt strength to make me question the lager part. Crystal clear, nice lace, some head.

RickTStiles (826) - Houston, Texas, USA - NOV 20, 2009
On tap at the Straathallen Hotel. Not bad. Crisp, refreshing, a bit fruity and overall satisfying and easy to drink. Wont change your life but it goes down smooth.

decaturstevo (5850) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - SEP 23, 2008
Light amber pour with off white head and lace. Malt and almost bourbon-barrell aroma. Medium malt with a bit of an off bitter. Thin and foamy not really special but pretty solid.

Draft at ballgame. Served headless. Seemed fairly fresh. Colorful body, highly fizzed and light bodied. Some caramel malts, slender hops. Slightly metallic. Pretty good lager.

blipp (8284) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAY 9, 2008
Draft at Jine’s on Park Ave. in Rochester. Pours clear amber with a thin beige head. Aroma is light caramel and barley. Medium body. Flavor is lightly roasted malt, caramel, toast and the faintest hint of hops. Nice.
