3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a nice clear sparkling copper with a nice lasting white head and good lace. Aroma is lightly sweet caramel and crackery malts, lightly toasted bwheat bread, and some earthy and slightly peppery hops. Flavor is clean, nice toasted malts, biscuity, light caramel flavor, nice crisp bitterness, a bit herbal and slight grass. Crisp and nice finish- good vienna/mexican amber lager.

Good stuff. A very solid, light Amber lager. Thin pour, with almost no head. Tastes of caramel roast, and has a very light bittery clean finish.

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.

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!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle @ Beer Run / Charlottesville VA --- Clear dark orange amber color, thick ivory head, streamers of lace. Bright color, good looking. Aroma of malt. Taste is semi-sweet malt that has mild carbonation on the swallow, and hops that give a sense of unsweetened tea as much as bittering. A satisfying brew, easy to drink, lots of flavor.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 11, 2011 Bottle. Poured a murky orange in color with a small white fizzy head that was fully diminishing and had poor lacing. The aroma was of sweet malts with a light citrus hop scent. It tasted bitter and rather malty at first and finished with a nice biter-sweet hoppy flavor that stuck around on the taste buds for and average amount of time. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body with and creamy yet dry texture with a soft carbonation. Overall a great lager with a nice mix of maltiness and bitterness.

(Old BA rate - bottle)
Poured with a fairly generous finger of creamy white head; pretty solid retention and some lacing; lightly hazy light orange-rust color. Lightly malty; nutty; bit of yeastiness. Maltiness shows up first; a little earthy; pretty clean and basic. Mediumish MF; a little carbonation sneaks in but would have expected some more interesting feel to it; just kinda slid by without much notice. Pretty good as it tasted solid and was refreshing enough. Overall, not a bad brew at all and I could see this as a macro-drinking friend converter

(most recently, @ hat factory, RVA)
light coppery bronze hue. fizzy. white to off-white head. decent maltiness, but not much complexity. then again, it’s not exactly going for complexity, either. some nice, crispy bready/cracker taste with enough hops to balance but not much more. way more presence here than any of the typical lagers out there, but not the depth of character of some of the better micros or imports.
