ok. i bought a case of this for 15 bucks on clearance having never heard of it. i didnít give it much thought; my wife likes ambers, itíd be a good filler beer, and itís cheaper than Yuengling. whatever.
Well, i tried it and was instantly in love. It drinks like so much more than an amber lager. it pours a cloudy sienna color with a thin off-white head. the aroma is kinda fruity- candy, bubblegum, cherry, plum- and toasty. the flavor, though, is what makes it. itís really bready and toasty. itís got a dark fruitiness to it. itís got more hoppy bitterness than any other lager I can think of, and the finish is dry and malty with a pretty solid bitterness. i highly recommend it.

Golden pour with hints of red. Light head and lace. Nice caramel malt aroma. Sweet start with a hint of cherriness. A hint of hop bitter on the end. Thin and a bit watery, decent carbonation. Not bad more like an amber ale than at PL. j12601 (11175) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 31, 2009
On tap at Barcade. Pours a clear pale golden amber wit ha thin white head. Mostly empty aromas with some malt and a little bit of citrus. Medium bodied, light malt, not much else. Finishes with a light bitter.

12 oz bottle. Amber pour with a thin off white head. Aroma of malt and faint hops. Great full flavor of roasted malt. Pleasant surprise, really good local (for me) lager. Ron (3925) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 9, 2009
Yes JB, this was a fine beeer to have right after tubing and before trying my hand on the jetski. This beer had more body to it than the usual Lager. I guess thatís why itís premium.

The label calls this one an amber, ípremium lagerí doesnít seem to do it justice. Very nice beer with a great balance of hops and malt, leaning towards malty. Enjoying it on a boat with our best friends made it all the more enjoyable. BREWMUSKCLES (2673) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 29, 2009
pepper spice and malt flavor to this cloudy tea looking brew. a bit too little hop and this brew tastes like something is missing. a whole dimension of character, flavor!? call it what you like but at least the palate is open to insert something, what !!! with a good enough name, bottle and appearance cape ann reformulate this brew a bit and show us your skills. good luck since it wonít take too much. syton98 (44) - USA - JUN 15, 2009
Not much to like about this beer. While the aroma was ok the aftertaste was not pleasant and hung on the tounge for a long time. I would not and did not order a second. BroSpud (2166) - , Massachusetts, USA - MAY 18, 2009
Tasting at a beerfest [Disclaimer: This was tasted along with many, many other beers during a tasting at Julios. Some of the details are a little hazy]. Liked this one slightly better than their ale. zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - MAY 17, 2009
(bottle - 12 oz) Hazy copper pour with a very thin off-white head. Aroma is lightly sweet and malty with a light touch of hops underneath. Flavor is sweet at the beginning with a crisp and lightly bitter hop balance near the middle. Finishes clean and lightly toasted with some malts and a bit of dry grass on the palate.
