From can poured into a pint glass. I really like this. It's not very bitter and has a nice malty flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HIGHB4LL (522) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JAN 9, 2014
12 oz. can. Appearance: finger of white head, diminishes quickly, clear, amber/copper color, .Aroma: bread, caramel, wheat, resin, floral, slight citrusy zest. Palate: light-medium body, sticky texture, average carbonation, metallic and bitter finish that lasts, watery. Taste: nice full body malt taste with a mellow hoppy bitterness at first, giving way to much less pleasant hoppy metallic taste. Overall, like the look, but the metallic and watery sensations did this beer in for me, not a fan really.

Brouwerij (929) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 6, 2013
Can. Pours a dark amber with light tan head. Settles in minutes with minimal lacing. Aroma is nutty, malty, sweet. Flavor is quite sweet, fading into a nutty, toffee malt finish. Flavor is fairly mild throughout, drinkable. Quite nutty, malty, and caramel as it warmed. Moderate carbonation, light body, and crisp texture. An interesting combination of lager texture and strong malt profile. Definitely different, admittedly I haven’t had many of this style, but I appreciated this beer a lot more the second time around.

I stumbled across this beer in Taos, NM at a liquor store that had no business holding this kind of beer. I’m glad it did, though. This is still a standard against which I compare dark lagers. Rich, full bodied, great balance, and slightly sweet.
