Draft at brewpub. Pours a dark amber color with a medium head that diminished quickly. Heavy hoppy aroma. Medium body smooth texture. Good complex hoppy flavor with a moderate finish. Best of brews tasted.

Lubiere (10472) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2011
A golden lager with a thin white head. In aroma, solventy crips malts, grainy notes. In mouth, a watery and mundane lager, with crisp malts, no defaults nor any qualities. On tap at brewpub, Jan. 3 2011.

Dogbrick (8682) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUL 27, 2014
Sample at the brewpub. Clear amber color with a thin and frothy white head that recedes gradually to a film. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Malt and slight hops in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, overripe fruit and a touch of earthy hops. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Barely average overall.

Ibrew2or3 (7101) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 20, 2008
Pours clear deep gold with off white head. Odd looking beer for an amber. The aroma is roasty malts, 90L crystal malts and some really faint caramel. The taste is nice and amber-like with rich roasty malts, a little bit of malt astringency mixing with more lightly roasted malts. All this maltiness slowly turns into Munich grainy type malts along with mild pine hoppiness and faint floral hops as the finish approaches. The hop bitterness does grow some into the finish and lingers around with sweet and roasted maltiness.

DrSilverworm (6979) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Sample on tap at the brewpub. Clear orange color. Light, crisp carbonation. Nice light hops and zest aroma. Not bad. Tasty and drinkable. Friends liked it, it was a standout amongst them.

On tap at the brewpub in Sarasota. Medium amber pour,slight sprucey aroma. Flavor has some grapefruity hoppy notes with a balanced malty caramel finish. Thickish mouthfeel. More ale characteristics than a lager. Pretty good.
