KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - DEC 17, 2010
Bottle. Poured a hazy medium amber with a very small off white fizzy head that was fully diminishing and had no lacing to speak of. The aroma was very light of roasted bread malts, a flowery hop and a leathery yeast with hints of caramel and dried fruit. It tasted sweetly bitter and a little acidic from start to finish with the end having a mild notes of caramel and a slight hint of some fruitiness. Mouthfeel was light to medium in body and oily in texture with a lively carbonation. Overall a nice tasting and refreshing brew.

AirForceHops (7044) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 9, 2010
Bottle. Very good for a lager. Pours a hazy amber with a decent white head. Left lacing. Big, malty nose with some fruity hints to it. Flavor is rich and smooth, heavy on the sweet malts with a touch of caramel. Medium in body with mild carbonation. Some pleasant bitterness in the finish and aftertaste. I would buy again if I’m looking for something light and smooth, well made brew

Orange-amber with modest, creamy, beige head / Nose of sour malt / Light to medium body, sour and malty, soft carbonation and a little watery, with fair finish / Simple flavors of sour malt, cooked fruit, and caramel / Below average, for a lager.

Ratman197 (14508) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 12, 2010
Bottle poured a clear amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of graininess, carmel and earthiness. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, earthiness and a hint of fruittiness with a smoth carmel finish.

Frothmeister (786) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 18, 2010
12oz bottle. Pours a clear, light reddish brown with a tan head. Aroma of burnt sugar, malt, faint yeast. Surprisingly flavourful for a lager. Tastes similar to Fuller’s ESB. Sponge toffee, treacle, dried fruits with some bitterness. A pleasant surprise! Honestly, if tasting blindly, I would never guess this was a lager.

r464 (2354) - Earth, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2010
Orangey color. Aroma of malts with hits of hops. Not all that bad for a lager. A step above the macro brews, but still rather tepid. A safe session beer or one to have for a crowd.

williamherbert (1529) - Syracuse, New York, USA - MAY 9, 2010
Very good bright sunny orange hue with a large rocky white head. Lots of haze, serious carbonation. Leaves a little foam. Has a German malt bitter aroma. Filled with a mild bitter hop second wave scent. A slightly woody smell is in the hops, the hops also being a bit floral. Some strong ale alcoholic punch. Tastes like a strong/special ale with some bitter amber malt thrown in. Good alcoholic punch. Hops add a flowery but bitter addition. Bitter and grassy, and somewhat sweet. Feels thick like a strong ale, even though it’s somewhat ashy. But not in a bad way. A nice, thick, heavy, bitterish drink, with a sweet balance.

oteyj (2139) - New Hampshire, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Brownish amber pour with a small off white tight foamy head that leaves a nice sticky lacing. The aroma is bready caramel toffee with light note of nut and some fruity esters. The flavor is nice for the style- caramel and toasty toffee with a nice floral hoppiness. The palate is medium for the style with a slight astringency and supple texture. Not bad at all for the syle, and average overall.
