Opened with a huge hiss...and this bottle has been on a shelf for a couple months now. Pours a lightly hazy amber with golden highlights and a huge foamy off white head that left a bunch of lacing. Aroma of fruits, mixed citrus, some caramel, toffee, Flavor was lots of tingly carbonation, yeast, mixed fruits, toffee, toasted malts. I think some infection was settling in on this beer based on how carbonated it was in addition to all the fruity esters. Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - OCT 10, 2008
Bottle. Pours an amber body with a light head. Lots of toasted malt with caramel and a light hop finish. No etoh and a bit bland. jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 4, 2010
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.

Deep orange with a slight haze, faint white head. Straightforward sweet and grainy malts completed by a racy floral hop touch. Quite bitter, certainly dry, brings forth slight nutty oiliness, but remains tame in all its componenents. Light bodied, crisp texture. From average to average.

Beautiful browish copper appearance. Smooth pour with limited head and surprisingly little aroma even with nose deep in the glass. It appears the scent needs to go through the mouth rather than the nostrils; I enjoyed a lingering aroma of the beer’s hops for a few moments following my first few sips. Surprisingly strong hoppiness for an amber lager. Not bad, but left me feeling like this beer is trying to compete in a different category

Pretty average -- as the score indicates. Almost too flavorful for its style too sweet and sugary. Pours a nice dark mahogany brown with good lasting head. Smell is malt and brown sugar. The taste -- too syrupy.

12 oz bottle. Hazy amber in color with a huge tan head. Aroma of sweet caramel, toffee, and bread. Taste is pretty sweet with caramel and toffee- hardly any hop character or bitterness to balance. Carbonation was very heavy and abrasive on the tongue and throat. This was definitely a bit old. perhaps re-rate on a fresher bottle or draft. 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. fiulijn (20492) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 30, 2009

Hazy blond color. Very simple Ale, not worth many words.
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.
