First time rating this....hmmmm...I got it for free at the bowling alley, where I had the three kids all by my myself, trying to get them to bowl. The bartender thought I needed it! A passable lager, fairly clean atthe finish and when warm. Fair lager malty nose.

Pretty decent, and easy to drink. Has kind of a funky/acidic aftertaste though.

Had a robust hops, and malts aroma. Not a bad lager. Not my favorite beer though. Sticking with the ales, and pilsners.

malty fruity aroma, pours copper-brown and has a nice head. First sip gives you a bitter blast. As you continue it becomes maltier and smoother and the hops diminishes. Slight alcohol taste at the end. Tastes more like and irish ale than a lager. Refreshing.

This beer is a beautiful pour, but I think it’s pretty middle of the road as far as flavor and quality. I think it’s a great beer by which to rate other beers. Fairly distinct aroma, great amber color, and a bitterish sparkling taste.

Relatively nice hallertau aroma. Malt character is fair with some thinness and faint funk. Hops are fair, but understated.

She is an orange amber in color...she gives good head and leaves lots of lace. She has a hoppy flavored snatch with a mild finish. Solid.

I was really looking forward to this beer after reading all the fine reviews. It really looked good in the glass, nice color and good head. Then I smelled it. It smelled like paint. It tasted like a mixture of paint and soap. Now I know how they got the color and head, red paint and soap. Needless to say, I was very dissapointed. I did try another to see if it was just this bottle. Tasted the same. Gave the rest to my son in law.He said the same thing. Very dissappointed.
