arminjewell (9237) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Pours hazy brownish black with thin off white head. Aroma has notes of some chocolate, touch of roast, and some dark fruit. Taste is some thin chocolate and roast, some weird almost vinegar in the middle, finishing slightly dry and bitter. Good, but a bit off.

Clear darkish amber beer. Smooth and soft. Quite malty with soft fruit coming through fairly quickly. Not hoppy fruit but a slightly tart orange that turns sweet in the finish. Not a traditional lager and all the better for it!

can. Pours dark copper color with small gray head. Aroma is caramel, slight metallic, slight molasses. Flavor is alot of caramel, with some soft hops toward the finish, but a lasting caramel aspect. Smooth, creamy, almost chewy mouth feel. Very sessionable, its really not too bad. Nothing complex or noteworthy, but entirely inoffensive, and pleasing to drink.

brokensail (15728) - Dublin, California, USA - JAN 17, 2011
A: The pour is amber in color with a decent sized off-white head. S: Not an overly impressive nose, but not bad. Mostly bready with some yeast and maybe a bit of earthy hops. At least itís not buttery... T: A pretty basic flavor profile here. Some toasted and bready malts with a decent enough earthy hop flavor. Not really much bitterness and maybe a bit of toffee. M: The body is light to medium with a moderate carbonation. D: I had very low expectations for this tick. Surprisingly not bad. Donít know if Iíd really want it again, though.

Atom (2134) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 16, 2011
12oz can pours hazy copper with small off-white head. Aroma is yeast, caramel, toffee, and malts. Taste has a weird sour sweet acidity, lip pucking. Thinking this is a bad can, will have to try again.

obguthr (5577) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - DEC 2, 2010
Year old can: Dried grass clippings on the nose. Hazy copper, fine floaties,thin yellow head. Metallic sweet barley malt flavor. Nutty cashew finish. This was not all that bad and quite enjoyable even in its advanced age, particularly for the style. Is the tinniness from the liquid or the can? Itís probably the liquid, but Iím dying to have a fresh sample to decide. Definitely should re-rate.

Worty, but flavorful, this lager is flawed, but still above its ilk. Itís a bit hard to drink in terms of aftertaste and defects, but overall it is best when mixed with bourbon.

beerguy101 (5356) - Newark, California, USA - SEP 19, 2010
Sampled on 9/19/2010. This amber pours a medium amber color from a 12oz can. Small to medium sized white foamy head, decent retention and nice lacing. The aroma is fruity, caramel and sweet. A medium to light bodied amber. The malts are caramel and sweet. The hops are herbal. A little sweet and somewhat nutty with some hop bitterness. Decent carbonation. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - JUL 14, 2010
12oz can, sampled on 6/7/10: Pours a transparent dark copper amber with a stringy-lacing off-white head. Has a semi-sweet toasty caramel malty nose with some grassy hop notes. Starts with pretty good fullness and sweet chewy caramel maltiness well-balanced with some grassy hop bitterness before a smooth lightly doughy finish. A good dark lager.
