Light haze on this copper brew. Sweet caramel malt, light grass, toasty malts, and some floral as well in the aroma. Full bodied and smooth. Nice toasted malt, caramel, and some earth/floral hops in the flavor. Refreshing and flavorful- this brew is well underrated.

Bottle Pours a hazy amber with an off white head. The head leaves quickly. Lacing is okay. Aroma is malty. Mostly caramel and grass. Has an okay cabonation. The mouthfeel is alright. Theflavor is spicy grass. Which really works for tis beer. Has a good malty endiing. Has a medium body. A thickier texture. The finish is good with a good aftertaste. Not a bad beer from a brewer who makes good beer.

From the bottle - This one poured a tall, white head of foam with a rich (for a lager) aroma and an an decidedly ruddy hue to the liquid (why isn’t this called a red beer?). The taste is very caramelly,
with a grain adjunct... it’s a good lager, but nothing too special.

Very sweet, thick bodied, lightly bitter, cloudy yellow, hints of honeysuckle, other flowers, a sticky-watery lingering finish with notes of sweet malt, herbs, and golden delicious apples,

Once in awhile you find a beer that is grossly underated...this is such a case. Maybe my palate is ass backwards...but a 2.86...WTF. Honestly this is one of the better lagers I’ve had. Pours a light clear gold and has a two finger white head. Aroma is lagering yeast and sweet bread/fruit. Flavor is sweet malt and caramel...with lagering yeast, but there is a bit of bitterness as well. I think it is incredibly well balanced. Mouthfeel is smooth and a bit oily. Don’t get why people don’t like this. To me, it is the biggest upset I’ve found...next to st ambroise oatmeal being a top 50...WTF is with that.

Dry malty, buttery, sandalwood aroma. Homebrewy at times and unusual. Hazy light tea color. Diacetyls - butter, caramel. Easy drinking. Some cereal and straw, sweet on the lips. Mouthy.

Pours dark golden with a mostly receding wispy off-white head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, nuts, and sticky wort. Taste is malty, toffee, nuts, sticky bread and herbal hops. Mouthfeel is full bodied and lightly sticky with moderate carbonation.

A brew with clear high and low points. Highs? The lovely appearance, with a nice medium copper color and off white head. The aroma, with a nice sweetness and some alcohol notes. Lows? The flavor, sadly. It’s thin and lacks much depth. A bit of malt and caramel sweetness, but it can’t live up to the aroma...not even close, really.
