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.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 31, 2010
Tap at BT. Pours a clear light amber/orange with a small white head. Aroma is light toasted malts, bready, moderately sweet malts, light caramel and toffee, and fresh herbal hops. Flavor is nicely toasted malts, but a bit thinning and not too big, light mineral and clean hop bitterness in the end. Pretty nice.

EithCubes (5006) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Fresh bottle. Nose is sweetly malty with caramel and very light toasting, pours dull copper, transparent with almost no carbonation and yet a dense, tight sudsy beige head. Taste is sweet with great toasted malts and light bread through to the finish and aftertaste, light bits of bread crusts, and a big thrust of watery lemony citrus right up the middle. Hops very light and earthy/noble. Body light-medium, watery but with a tumbling malty feel to compensate. I love the heck out of the toast into the aftertaste, lots of great Maillard character; on the whole, typical SN: clean, moreish, very simple and solid.

4oz pour at the Maxs 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.

JaBier (4956) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - AUG 4, 2010
Sample at the brewpub. Clear gold/amber pour with a medium off-white head. Nose is sweet malt, later yeast, a bit of caramel and noble hops. Crisp later flavor with some caramelly sweetness. Dries out a bit in the finish.

notalush (4910) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Bottle - label states 5.3% abv - light orange, with a minimal head - nose of fairly rich maltiness, candied fruit, light toasty bread, a touch of floral hops - flavor is simple, but pleasantly balanced - medium sweet toasty maltiness, a mild mineral leads to a drier second half, with some nutty and earthy malt character, and a moderate bitterness to finish - a little too simple, and nothing really pops enough to make me untreated in having any more, but its nice enough to drink.

Pailhead (4897) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle: The aroma is very light and consists of lightly toasted grains with a hint of caramel. It pours a transparent amber with a two finger beige head that has decent retention before fading to a very thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. There is some sporadic webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with light-moderate caramel and light fruit. The finish has light toasted grain/cereal notes with some grassiness. Its light-medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

A pretty orange, this is a light beer that is malty but not too much. A decent beer, be great to introduce "bad beer"drinkers to.

nuplastikk (4567) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 4, 2014
12oz bottle. Bright, hazy, unfiltered orange-tan body. Very thin, but steady off-white head. Pretty true to style. Clean, toasty malt. Medium bodied, very drinkable. Has enough of a noble hop bite and balance to give it an upfront bite and stay interesting. Clean, not cloying or sticky at all. Well made, fresh lager.

JohnnyJ (4398) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 9, 2009
On tap at PP Carlsbad. Clear yellow pour, frothy white head. Sweet malt, biscuits, hint of vegatble, and light hops. Non-offensive, but not to interesting.

onceblind (4287) - 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.
