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.

arminjewell (8857) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 7, 2014
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, clear orange-red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toffee, bread, some dough, some spicy notes, some nice grassy notes, touch of red fruit. Taste is a mix of grass, spice, yeast, bread, some doughy notes into some toast, slight red fruits, finishing slightly sweet, slightly dry.

3fourths (8811) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 14, 2014
From bottle. Clear copper with a short head.
Red apple fruitiness in the nose with maybe some metal notes; simple malt, little aroma hops, but clean. Medium-light body, a little syrupy across the middle, growing bitterness late. Nice flavor balance, but it’s nothing to demand your attention.

nimbleprop (6355) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 10, 2014
4oz pour at the Max’s Taphouse Beer Camp event. Pours a clear orange with some cloudy, white head. Nose has a real distinct grainy character, nutty like peanut skins, plenty of yeasty dough, a bit of buttered toast. Flavor is spot on, yeasty bread, flicks of orange, some biscuit. Clean finish. So true to style.

onceblind (6172) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Clear brilliant copper under a thin foamy white head. The nose is very biscuity and grainy-earthy. The flavor is a tad bit large and bold for its style, which I have no problem with, but the flavor profile itself is a bit too toast and biscuit for my taste, with amber grains and a lager yeasty finish. A bit doughy sweet throughout.
