2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle courtesy of DosBeerigos--thanks, Phil! Served in a pilsner glass.
Pours a moderately hazy red-copper color with a half-finger white head that sticks around for a bit and exhibits some small white bubbles. A bit of lacing afterward. The nose brings forward a bit of bready malt plus a touch of toast. Some mild earthy hops there as well. The taste has a very pour showing--slight infection has set in and there is a bit of an acetic presence. Very unfortunate. Other than that, thereís a mild cherry-skin presence along with some breadiness in the background. Slight bitterness in the finish, but the coming vinegar takes over. Another infected bottle; quite a shame.

Had this on a warm summer evening outside at a bar on a deck. Had nice color to it, a deep amber color. Poured a lite colored head with some lacing. to it. It was tough to tell the clarity of the beer, since it was outside they gave it too me in a plastic cup, but from what I could tell I think the clarity would have been good. Smelled fairly balanced not too hoppy. It tasted pretty good. I again not overly hoppy, could tast some roasted malts to it. Went down pretty smooth, was very drinkable, Iíd get it again, or try more from this brewery if I had the opportunity.

This beer just shakes my beliefs. I thought I loved lagers, but I donít particularly like this one. It is just a bit too sweet for this style. I should j just quit with this and get Americas lager instead.

Not quite a light style lager but nothing overwhelming here. Nice flavor, clean and crisp, with a nice golden color and white head. Beer drinkers from all walks of life will appreciate.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear orange, medium head, piercing taste with some bitter fruit, grapefruit, and no apparent alcohol. lagers generally arenít my favorites, but this one lingered and had enough bitterness to cut through some spicy sausage and fish it was accompanying. The only thing I would knock it on was the general complexity...it didnít have a lot of interesting flavors I can describe and bitterness doesnít qualify. But, for the style, and the fact it was a lager, Iíll give it some kudos. Worth trying out.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a slightly hazy orange/amber with a large thick off-white head. Orange notes in the aroma with a slightly tart yeasty quality. Taste is slightly sweet with some bitter hops. Orange in the finish with some skunky notes. Overall decent, but not that great.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a nice light orange color with a foamy, slightly off white head that is a good size. Smells of pale malts. Taste is light and fruity. Not a bad drink!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a copper-orange, with a medium sized, off-white head. Lots of caramel malt in the aroma, with notes of hops and hay. Flavors is very clean, with caramel and toasted malts. Finishes clean with crisp. Overall, well put together, and one of my favorite "drinking" brews. Nothing to complex, or over done!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to Dandman629 for hooking me up with this. Interesting aroma of popcorn, almost like Kettle Corn. Pours a slightly cloudy amber color with some slight honey orange tones thrown in the mix. Flavor is composed of a fruity dryness. Hints of strawberry & citrus as well. Overall this suprised me. More complex than expected. A quality brew.

An American ale with some slight caramel (not sweet, but carbonised) at the aftertaste, this is another subpar brew from the Albemarlers
