COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our take on the classic European amber lager. It has bright reddish highlights and a pronounced bready malt aroma reminiscent of its Austrian counterparts. The flavor plays slightly toward caramel and toasted lager malt but remains balanced and drinkable with a clean finish perfect for a summer session.

Light copper pour, 3 fingers of creamy off white head. Nose is dough, hint of hops. Bitter. Middle is bread and medium roasted grain. Finish is dry. Missing something, but not bad.

skmikeg (878) - Poway, California, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Pours a reddish amber-copper with a thin off white head which fades to very little lacing. Aroma is of toasted bready malts, biscuit malts, caramel, sweet malts, and toasted lager malts. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium-light body with a slightly watery mouthfeel and a mostly sweet, medium finish. Overall, a decent beer that is a little too sweet for my tastes by is really good for a mediocre style.

vyvvy (3951) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Pours clear golden copper with a large white head. The aroma has clean bready malt, light vanilla, light spicy/leafy hops and mild caramel. It has a medium / light rough body with some fairly sharp abrasive carbonation. The flavor starts really dry with crackers, dry caramel, fruitiness (apple / dried apricot sort of thing), spicy hops and herbal notes. The finish has far more of a hoppy presence than most of the style and remains bone dry. This is a beer you could study for subtleties or drink down quick and not thing much about. Enjoyable.
