Not often does somethign like this get my juices flowing. I love lagers but mid-sized american breweries usually fuck them up. This is something different. I was expecting crap. I was surprised. It isn’t a traditional lager though, more like an ipa-light. Very different than the standard shit coming out.

deyholla (6511) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - APR 27, 2013
Bottle thanks to a trade! Pours a clear very deep amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of rye and sweet grains with a bit of light fruits. Flavor is very similar with rye and sweet grains throughout with just a hint of light fruits in the finish.

arminjewell (6095) - Farmington Hills, Michigan, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Pour out of bottle, clear red pour with white head, aroma brought biscuit, spicy rye and earthy tones, some grain, slight lemon, touch of toasted malt. Taste is a pretty nice mix of spicy rye, some slight caramel, toasted malts, hints of biscuit, some slight lemon and other citrus hops but restrained, finishing fairly spicy.

BVery (5979) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 23, 2012
Bottle. Chestnut colored pour with an off-white head with a small amount of lacing. Aroma is toasted malts, a touch of rye, and a bit of sweetness. Slick palate that is semi-full in body. Taste is bold earthy hops with some bready and sweet caramel malt. Pretty tasty.

heemer77 (5098) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - NOV 6, 2012
A rich deep brown brew with some copper at the edges. The thin light khaki head tops the pretty brew. The nose has some rich notes of caramel and little bit of rye spice. There is also some hint of a spice like cinnamon. Toffee and black tea are the dominant flavors. Cinnamon and rye in the spicy finish. Bits of dry wood come through in the aftertaste. Some tobacco notes come through as it gets warmer. A nice spicy winter warmer.
