Clear old gold pour with a three finger, fluffy eggshell head that has decent retention. Aroma is toast, caramel, oily grain, light doughiness, floral hops. Flavor is indeed pretty toasty up front, then a good deal of caramel, some light nutty notes, odd bitter oily grain and light earthy and floral hops. Light to medium body, dry, but slightly slick feel, medium, sharp carbonation, dry, but slightly oily finish. Not really my cup o’ tea.

Keg at Rose and Thistle, Frimley. Vague grassy aroma. Amber. Thick fluffy off-white head. Down in the dial taste-wise - light bitter, umami. It doesn’t really register. Light-medium bodied. Slick. Soft carbonation. Abrupt finish. It’s perfectly pleasant and rate the palate and appearance. But there’s nothing to it. Enjoyable whilst simultaneously being inconsequential as far as taste goes. Hmmm. Difficult one. ajnepple (6995) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUL 3, 2017
12 oz single bottle from Hy Vee Wine & Spirits - Council Bluffs (Madison Ave). Clear, light amber appearance with a dissipating white head. Aroma of toasted malt and mild hops. Similar flavor, adding mild sweetness and balanced by a light bitterness. Light to medium body. Smooth, clean and easy to drink. A decent lager overall. nickd717 (4855) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUL 1, 2017
Bottle. Clear penny copper with a minimal white head. Aroma is sticky caramel, biscuit, light toast. Flavor is sweet caramel, toast, minimal hop bitterness. Medium bodied with lower carbonation. Good for the style I guess, just not exciting. zacgillbanks (5450) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - JUN 29, 2017
Bottle from Asda, Metrocentre, Gateshead. Amber coloured with a thin white head. It has a toasted malty and toffee flavour followed by a caramel and fruity bitter-sweet finish. Only OK for the high-ish ABV.

Keg at Gypsy Moth, Greenwich. It’s a drinkable beer. Can’t say I noticed much toasting - indeed, I can’t say I noticed much of anything. But it’s inoffensive. Chudwick (3332) - Taylor Mill, Kentucky, USA - JUN 14, 2017
Draft- decent. Server said this would be amber. Was expecting an ale and not a lager. Oops. CormacMcCory (8) - - JUN 14, 2017 does not count

Draft at Buffalo Wild Wings. Pours light brown with a white head. Has a fair amount of caramel on the nose and tongue. Finished clean. It’s a lot like Yuengling Lager except at twice the price. slowrunner77 (12594) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 6, 2017
Dark amber color. Not getting much in the way of toast in the nose or flavor, malty and rich with a rather extreme bitterness, that dries the palate in the finish. Not a fan.
