Draft sample @ brewery. Light barley malt and grassy aroma. Clear honey gold with a moderate off-white head, nice lacing. Sweet grainy malt, slightly spicy grassy hop flavor. Light body, soft carbonation.

This is pretty decent for a lager. Take your typical lager, add a bit of hops, get rid of a bit of the annoying qualities, and here you have it.

3/28/13. Sampled during CBC 2013. Amber pour with a small khaki head. Fruity aroma, light spice, and plenty of caramel. Mostly malty flavor, caramel, a touch of fruitiness, light spicy and grassy hop character. Not bad.

Amber pour with an off white head. A good balance of malts and hops but I would have hoped for a little more on the hop side. Easy to drink and a nice beer for a ball game.

UPDATED: JUL 1, 2012 Served in a cheap plastic cup. Had this after a company outing at an Indianapolis Indians game (AAA). After drinking free swill for an hour this was maybe the best beer I?ve ever drank out of a plastic cup. Lots of flavors going on here with fruits and caramel, but nothing overbearing. Surprisingly easy to drink in 100* weather.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2014 16oz can 4/12/14 (Payless Liquors-Indianapolis)-Pours amber with an off white head. Aroma of malt and sweetness. Taste of three danger with some caramel and toffee on three back end. Not my favorite style but tasty.

16 oz can to pint. Looks good for the style; a transparent light copperish orange with eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes malty and lightly toasty with notes of lager yeast. Nice and smooth on the palate. A solid example of the style.

Pours deep golden and clear supporting a dense creamy white head that fades to a film in minutes. Nose is some toasty malts, sweep pils malts, mild fruity esters and fruity and or very mild floral hops. Flavor is moderate sweet rich malts with some again fruity notes that can be taken from either hops or some yeasty esters. Medium sweetness in the flavor then finishes moderately dry with a medium light bitterness. I would call it a full body. This has been my favorite of the sunking cans with a sticker on the side.
