Good smooth feel. Not to much aroma and even little flavor of nutty malts. Still overall enjoyable.
On tap, ADT. Clear copper with a medium off-white head. Sweet malt, toasted bread, mild citrus hops. Light bodied with a smooth balanced finish. Pleasant easy drinking. tommann (3851) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 16, 2017

10-09-2017; bottle; at home (bought at Saveur Bière, as part of their September discovery box).
The looks of the beer are fine. The colour of the beer is a rather dark golden yellow, approaching amber. The beer itself is pretty much crystal clear. I don't really see any bubbles rising in the beer. On top of the beer some rough slightly brownish white foam is formed. Foam retention is rather low. The foam quickly disappears, leaving not much.
The smell of the beer is rather mild. I hoped it to be stronger. I smell some sweet malts, with a hoppy fresh fruity note. It is nice, but way to weak. There is a nice gummy kind of sweet touch there to, not bad, but all very mild.
The taste of the beer is better. It is way stronger. There is a very nice sweet malty flavour. It has a minimal toasty edge, not enough to call it a 'toasted lager', at least not in my opinion. Besides the sweet malts, there is also a touch of almond, some fruits, a slight syrupy touch and nice bitter and refreshing hops. The fruits have a slight hing of fresh apples. It is nice together with the slight syrupy, or caramel touch. Not bad. The hops are a nice balancing factor for the rather strong malts. This makes te beer well balanced.
The palate of the beer is average. It has a medium body, is slightly tingling and has a medium high carbonation. The finish contains mainly the sweet malts, caramel and some of the bitter hops. The end of the finish is rather dry. All in all, a nice beer, but not as toasted as expected. Roymullins (23) - - SEP 2, 2017
Nice malty lager. Most lagers are to weak and thin for my ale-scorched palate but this one holds up well- will enjoy again. thedm (6278) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 31, 2017
This bottled brew from a bottle shop was served at a cool temperature and poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a typically carbonated body transparent light orange brown colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was lager-ish. crisp with a medium malt hop aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of hops and malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

UPDATED: AUG 29, 2017 Can pours clear bronze color with a big fluffy off white head. It lingers leaving streaks of lace on glass. Smells of bread, caramel, flowers and light perfume. Tastes of malt, spicy hops, toast and a hint of minerals. Light to medium body, solid carbonation, slippery mouthfeel and a spicy, tingling finish. This is a nice clean, easy drinking beer! drpimento (3714) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 26, 2017
Another disappointment. With a toasted lager I would have expected some significant toast to it, but no. In the aroma I did pick up a hint along with some malt and fresh beer. Flavor has the barest suggestion of toast, lots of malt and significant bitterness more of a bitter sweet or a Sweet Bitter. Sweet up front and a slight bitter finish. An okay beer but nothing worth getting excited about. scorza (1) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - AUG 15, 2017 does not count
UPDATED: AUG 15, 2017 A 12 oz bottle at Sweetgrass restaurant in Tarrytown, N.Y. Golden color and lightly sweet aroma. Smooth and balanced, moderate alcohol. Lingering toasty note. mjmoen (575) - - AUG 12, 2017
