Bottle: Poured deep copper to amber in color. the nose showed off citrus, caramel and had a nice spiciness. The palate was sweet (caramel) but also had a balancing bitterness with some noticable citrus. Soft, plush and medium-bodied. austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - JUN 26, 2008
Sparkling amber, small fizzy head. Herbal and biscuit malty nose. Flavor is slightly buttery caramel malts, herbal hops. A bit watery but smooth palate. Nicely hopped, crisp lager, not that far from a (really) poor IPA even. CH-303 (2198) - Fribourg, SWITZERLAND - JUN 26, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 27, 2008 Appearance: Dark amber, almost no head.
Aroma: Quite malty, can smell the hops. Sweet.
Taste: A bit boring. Malty aftertaste.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2008 Copper murk with tan/white head. Nice malty taste. A good blend of sour and bitter. Nice hops bite in the finish. Full flavored yet very drinkable. Tastes a bit like southern iced tea.

33 cl bottle, Mulmur, ON. Slightly hazy golden/light amber. Pronounced hop aroma, nice sharp hop bite. Lighter body than hoped for, brief bitter finish. Drinkable and balanced but Iíd go with a Three Floyds variety over this. HonkeyBra (4044) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JUN 21, 2008
Bottle from a Brooklyn mix pack. Pours a nice amber, pretty solid white head. Aroma is great: toffee, caramel, with hints of bitter hops. Taste is dry with bits of caramel, toffee and a bitter hop finish. This is better than Great Lakes Eliot Ness. alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - JUN 20, 2008
Bottle; poured a n orange-amber with a medium white head; somewhat creamy. Aroma was great for the style, dominated by flowers and oranges; earthy. Found it to be pretty carbonated. Dry and bitter for the style finish. Toffee and caramel makeup the initial thrust of the beer, then some sweetness and it finishes with grassy and flowery hops. Definitely above average for the style. Surprised it took me so long to try this. That1Guy (2236) - Colorado, USA - JUN 20, 2008
Iíll be damned. A non-skunked lager. I didnít know it was possible. Better than Sam Adams Bahston Lagah. Delicious brew. Iím diggin it. GMUcrew7 (577) - Mason, Ohio, USA - JUN 20, 2008
Pours nice copper color, with small beige head. Aroma is malty. Flavor has nice balance of the malts and a very nice dry bitter finish of grass and floral hops. Palate is somewhat sticky and leaves a nice lacing behind.
