hoppy aroma - dark amber with light tan head - good carbination - pleasant extra hoppy taste, but not too sharp - finishes nicely with a bit of bitterness

It really is a pretty beer, burnt orange golden with a lovely firm head. It does lean heavily towards the malt and there is a hint of hops, just a hint. Seems so much more fuller in body than taste than it really is, the almost overpowering malt caramel dominate. It’s better than I thought it would be.

Cerveja bem equilibrada. Embora nao seja meu estilo preferido, apresenta carbonatação adequada e flavour complexo. Apresenta caracteristicas de uma porter, com lupulagem destacada.

First of all I would not classify this as a traditional lager. But maybe thats just me.
Mild taste of hops, but not offensive.
Good amount of carbonation.
Easy to enjoy. Glad it is finally available by the can (tall boy).

Bottle. Pours a nice Amber colour.
Aroma. what i can best describe as a light caramel aroma.
Taste. caramel, citrusy bitterness and raisins is what i can best describe it as.
Overall. Quite a good solid beer, the marketing description i feel has described the beer better then i’ve been able to.

Decent beer. One of my standards for use in cooking chili. I always like to keep a sixer in fridge at all times.

UPDATED: APR 23, 2015 Full-flavored with a mildly sweet, slightly rye-like hop flavor, particularly in the mouthfeel. My new favorite.

I can’t believe I’ve never rated this; this may have been the first craft beer I ever tasted back in the very early 1990s. On the other hand, I probably haven’t had a bottle since I joined ratebeer a decade ago. In the old days it was always on tap (and too expensive to buy, usually) but tonight I it was from the bottle. Amber pour, decent head. Malty, decent hop profile, some baking yeast on the nose. Pretty darn adequate and better than I expected.

Pours clear red minimum head. Lighter tasting ale with a nice blend of hops and grain.
