4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured straight from a chilled bottle. Aroma is slightly sweet, hints of caramel and toast. Pours a dark, amber-brown body. This is by far one of my favorite tasting beers. Very complex, hoppy feel to it, doughy, big body to this one. Carbonation is average. Very frothy lager, one and a-half fingers. Nice, sweet aftertaste resembling caramel and toffee. Alcohol taste is mild-moderate. Really pleasant to drink and despite being a bit dark, goes down relatively easy. Very, very tasty
Overall, a sensational brew. Will buy again.

12 fl oz. bottle. Pours amber, a bit hazy, with nice off white head. Poor head retention, poor lacing. Light to medium body, average carbonation, some crispy texture. Taste is smooth, malty, some herbal, caramel, subtle fruity notes. More or less balanced.

Pours a half finger of head on a clear amber colored body.
The aroma is rich caramel malt. Wonderful.
The taste has a solid caramel malt flavor a mild lemon bitterness in the background.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
It has excellent balance and flavor.

Bottle. Smells like a regular beer, pours orange with a two-finger white head that sticks around a while. Has a malty taste, but it’s very smooth with a slight tart and grainy taste at the end. I don’t love it but I definitely like it.

This is a pretty beer; a nice slightly orange amber color with a white head that lasts a bit. Nose is typical lager with a toasty note. I’m not a fan of lagers, but I tried to be fair. It doesn’t have that lager skunk like a lot of lagers. Taste is nicely balanced sweetness and a light bitter hop note. Medium body, lively carbonation. Not bad.

Nice amber colored beer with good head. A little bit of malty flavors but drinks smooth like a lager should. Pretty good mid level beer.
