Drjohnrock (691) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Draft sampler at the brewpub. Light amber hue, light sweet malty aroma, light to moderated bittersweet flavor. Something a bit off in the taste--some soapy character.

PorterPounder (7404) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 25, 2006
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.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 26, 2007
Good to see these folks doing lagers, too. Tasted March 2005 @ Brewery--Poured a rich burnt amber body. Sweet mildly sticky nose (hints of caramel). Mild hops presence, quite quaffable, but lacked a lot in the finish.

Lubiere (12935) - 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.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - FEB 20, 2009
At brewpub. Clear amber with little white head. Caramel malt aromas with a smattering of Cascade-like hops, a balanced smell. Quaffable mouthfeel. Body is mainly sweet and caramelly with a bready character. Slightly spicy in finish.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 1, 2010
Draft @ Brewpub: Clear amber color with a light head and some lacing. The nose is lightly husky with some grain and malt notes, subtle roast or caramel, too light to detect, and some light fruity hop notes. The flavor is mild with a thin body and a touch more of the grainy notes. Finishes thin and light.

Dogbrick (11605) - 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.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 23, 2009
Pours a dark ruby amber color with golden ruby hues when held to a light source and a thin half finger off-white head that quickly fades into a very thin lasting ring. No lacing. Earthy, metallic aroma with some subtle malt character as well as some adjunct like corn and rice presence. The flavor is similar to the aroma with a bit more of a malt presence. A bit fuller bodied than I expected but is still a bit watered down with a grainy rice and corn flavor as well as some subtle rye and caramel malt. Not very flavorful and it took a while to get through the full glass.
