pale lagers are not my thing, but this was better than most. noticeble difference in this to macros, more emphasis on the bready malts, just enough hops to balance it out in the end. not bad.

bottle: this is what a premium lager should be like, IMO. IMpressive looking pour, clear dark red with a pillowy white head. Nose is cracked grain and creamed corn. Sweet toffee and thick malts with hint of skunk on the finish, a touch of bitterness and burnt sugar

I haven’t called a premium lager impressive yet, but this one truly is. Nice malty aroma with that tell-tale lager smell in the back. Pour was a beautiful clear amber with a one finger off white head. Flavor was big and full (especially for such a low ABV beer). Toasted malt filled the mouth with a slight biscuit and caramel flavor. Just a slight hoppiness in the aftertaste. Not bitter, just balancing. Nice beer!

Poured amber with nice off-white head. Mostly malt nose, hint of pine. Caramel malt sweetness, hop flavor light and light on bitterness, too. Slightly muddy finish. Had with dinner at Roy Moore Fish Shack

Jabic (502) - Plainfield, Vermont, USA - JUL 16, 2011
Ar: Firm toasty maltiness, some red apple and caramel. Ap: Amber, slightly hazy, small white head with poor retention. T: Toasty malt, some light caramel and biscuit - dry with medium bitterness, steely and tea-like, and light cracker notes on the finish. P: Medium-light bodied with medium-high carbonation - crisp. O: Nice beer with a pretty substantial malt profile - certainly a session beer - not quite as intensely malty as a Vienna or Marzen, but same sorts of flavors.

This was the best lager I’ve had in quite some time. Just a very nicely balanced thirst quenching beer. I would say it is a throwback to the old days when men were men and women were glad about it.

12 fl oz bottle from BOTW (Rochester), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. 21MR11.

App.: Clear deep amber with a large off-white foam. Aroma: Toasted biscuit, earthy, slightly nutty malts, some bright notes with a touch of metallic tang, caramel, bread crust, a touch of green, resinous hops. Palate: Medium body, elegant effervescence. Flav.: Caramel, much fruitier than the nose, nice,berries, tree fruits, a little raisin, very malt-forward, nice (again); dry with restrained bitterness and a clean, malty finish.

Quite drinkable.

hayduke (5138) - Eureka, California, USA - MAR 19, 2011
a draft pour at the Cape Ann Alehouse. Light clear yellow. Nose of light malts and good fruit. Medium mouthfeel. Flavor is malts and light hops. Good bitter finish. Excellent for the style.

On tap at Yesterday’s Ale House - Newport, RI. Aroma gave a surprisingly strong fruity whiff. Otherwise quiet. Pale amber pour. Flavors are confused. Tight, crisp lagering and then instense fruitiness. I guess I could see this as coming with malts associated with the Vienna style, but they seem above average. Malt body and structure were cogent, but the flavors never jived for me. Otherwise, drinkable.

Nice foamy pour but controlable. Rocky head. Don’t see many lagers with gunk on the bottom of the bottle. Smell is a little lemony at times. Really sharp and rude for a lager, has many ale attributes. It quite bitter bordering on IPA territory if thats possible. Maybe they mixed up the label on this one, heheh. Nasty heavy vanilla er sumthin going on here. I didn’t see the percentile but I bet it rates quite high here. Now I see it has a 50% for overall and a 93% for style, figures. Yes quite big in personality. It says 5% but let me tell you it feels more like 7%. Impressed. Didn’t expect this from a lager, wew.
