Bottle 75 cl. Courtesy of bu11zeye. Hazy amber with a creamy and lacing off-white head. Sweet caramellish aroma, a little perfumy and a distinct oakiness. Fairly solid body with rich caramels, sweet oak and the citrus adding a balancing freshness. A slight bitterness. Very pleasant and drinkable. 220312

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Bev4Less. Aroma was of woody, centennial hops. Flavor kinda reminded me of Double Bastard and Oaked Arrogant Bastard, which made the style say American Strong Ale more than Amber Ale. This one was harsh to start, but definitely mellowed and was more enjoyable in the glass as it sat. Very good beer.

Fantastic beer. Lots of dark, fruity notes on the nose and the initial flavor, but slowly rolls across the palate and develops and oaky dryness. Certainly a complex brew that never tastes quite the same from sip to sip. So clean, light, refreshing, and delicious, but never would have guessed it’s a lager

On draft at The Bruery. Poured a golden reddish color with fluffy white head. Aroma was caramel and hops. Taste was fresh pure hops with a nice touch of oak on the finish. I’ve had this many times now but something about this was way better than any other time having it. Super Fresh!

Loakal pours a dark red color. The head on this beer is crazy as you can see. It took over my glass.
A really good mixture here of hops and oak. Hops give off a citrus, grapefruit and pine aroma. On the other side is the oak and a hint of caramel. Really nice and inviting.
The taste is pretty complex for a red and has a lot going on. It’s still nicely hopped and it gives off a good amount of bitterness. But there’s aspects I didn’t pick up in the aroma. Vanilla, earthiness, and spice. Then bring in the nice backbone of oak and caramel and you have the a perfect marriage of all the ingredients. Nothing gets in the way of each other and they all come through nicely.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, slick and sticky.
