2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Crisp deep amber coloured body with pungent ruby highlights and a two centimetre tall tan head with a lot of movement in the body. Aroma of toasted malt, caramel, nuts and a hint of earth - not too much there. Light-bodied; Sharp toasted malt notes with a little earthiness, some light sweet toffee flavours and a hint of grass and herbal notes. Aftertaste relatively light with the malt and a little sugar coming through. Overall, a pretty underwhelming beer with a good malty flavour, but not much else and not really worth trying. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in McLean, Virginia on 07-February-2013 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 16-February-2013.

This is an interesting red winter lager, yeasty and a bit of chocolate. Bottle pours a dark red-brown with a medium white head. Taste is nutty-malt and finishes almost like a light stout.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle. Deep amber/copper color and clear with a small white head and no lacing. Aromas of toasted grains, bready malts and hay. Medium body, slick texture and average carbonation. Flavor is mostly toasted and caramel malts, faint honey and vanilla sweetness with a light hop bitterness that finishes dry. Pretty crisp and clean. Meh, not for me.

Deer Valley Resort. Bottle. Nice reddish color with smell of sweetness to it. Malt was there along with some dried fruity taste. Not much of head retention. Thin mouthfeel. Not bad, but not great either

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle best before 03/13/13. Nose is lightly grainy, definite German lager yeast, a little sweetness with the pretzel dough and probably some Munich. Pours a beautiful dark amber-brown body and a short tan head. Very crisp full body, dense (and essentially impenetrable, simple) malt, mostly dry with a spritz of citrus on the back, hops are minimal but not absent, and there’s stability despite the light edge forward in malt. Water seems extra hard.
