Medium-brown color, minimal off-white head. Light to medium-bodied. Somewhat tart. Toast aroma along with malt and a hint of caramel, smoke, licorice, and soy sauce.

When I poured this amber/light brown beer, I was taken aback by an unexpected whiff of skunkiness. The aroma’s a little bit roasty, a little bit caramel, and only a little bit skunky. Tastes a little bit bitter and faintly sweet. Creamy, but not rich. To tell the truth, I was pleasantly surprised.

Can. Pretty much what you’d expect visually ... yep, it’s amber. Fizzy head. Sweet malty aroma. Fairly thin body, and really not much to this all around. Fairly "macro" character, just the lightest lick of caramel. (#5842, 11/9/2014)

Transfer from BA review on 8-19-12 - Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance – Pours a medium amber color with a one finger white head. The head has a fair amount of retention and eventually fades to give a light to medium amount of lacing. Smell – The aroma is of a caramel malt, brown bread, some roasted aromas as well as a light herbal hop smell. Taste – The taste starts with a nice roasted malt and caramel taste. As the flavor advances some light hop flavors of an earthy and floral nature come into the taste. As these hops come into play, the caramel sweetness fades some but the malt taste retains its strength. In the end a roasty and lightly sweetened hop flavor is left on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is average for the abv with a carbonation level being average to above average. The roastiness would be better enhanced by the slightly higher then average body, but the thickness of this brew was not bad none the less. The average to above average carbonation level makes it for an easy drinking, slightly exciting to drink brew. Good for the style and abv. Overall – A great session amber brew. Easy to drink, not adjucty beer with a pretty good taste and feel.

Pours copper with a thin tan head that rapidly vanish. Discrete aromas of roasted malt, coffee and... cupboard?! Better on tap, with some orange peel aromas. Dry finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Amber colored body, thin off-white head, sparse lacing. Toffee, bread, corn, sweet cereals. Medium to light bodied, smooth carbonation, moderate sweetness in the finish.

Malt and grain nose. Sweet honey palate, a bit on the boring side. Got in PA while visiting State College, sat in Ron’s fridge for months, and thankfully he returned it!

12 oz bottle from unknown origin in Pitsburgh. Somewhat disappointing but just like Straub, good enough for everyday drinking.

Bottle. Pours clear rich amber color, thin tan head. Aroma of toasted malt and caramel. Medium sweet taste. Medium body, ave carbonation, slick texture, mild sweet quick finish. I thought this was a real nice lager, good flavor, smooth, and sessionable

Pours a dark copper with a frothy, tan head that stays. Malty aroma. Thin, flat mouthfeel. Bland taste. Meh. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
