Looks and tastes like iced tea with some honey mixed in. Hardly any hops to speak of. Not awful.

Thank you zebracakes for the chance to taste this! An american dark lager? No way, this is a pale lager or a premium lager. Not dark enough to be called dark. Grainy sweet aroma. Not alky olfactory even tho it is pretty sweet smelling. Looks like light iced tea, very light.Nicely bubbly. Is not anywhere near flat. Hay and not like any other dark lager. Certainly more like an APA of sorts. Just a plain old good local beer.

UPDATED: JUN 20, 2008 I find it to be pleasantly sweet, with a nice dark amber color. Easy to drink. I think you may like this better than Yuengling...a great session beer. I love it personally and recommend it.

Bottle. Pours clear amber, thin off white head. Aroma is caramel, malt, hops, metal. Flavor is the same and pretty malty. Weak body.

Decent, but pretty weak tasting. All malt flavor that completely lacks complexity. No hops or bitterness. Watery finish.

This is a nice clean version of an amber lager. Pours a deep amber color with a thin white head. Very refreshing and balanced. Recommended!

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I am using commercial description to lable this an amber ale but doesn’t taste like one. Pour was a medium bubbly brown with a nice 2 finger off white head. Aroma was roasted malt but hard to detect. Taste was mostly water with a hint of toffee/roasted malt in the back of the throat after the swallow. Not much going on here and pretty weak.

Dusty and caramelly sweet nose, pale amber color, low frothy head. Light toasted maple syrup malt with a licorice tinge at the end. Oily mouthfeel. Thinish. Average.
