PorterPounder (7618) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - New Leaf Market - 12 oz bottle. Pours a nice sparkling, medium copper with a light off- white head. Aroma has some nutty accents to, a trace of fresh lake water. Crisp flavor with some nuttiness, a bit of maple syrup sweetness, a trace of dates and molasses. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Decent.

Drake (13150) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 16, 2016
12 ounce bottle from Trader Joe’s Brookfield, 11/8/16. Slightly hazy amber, thin fizzy tan head, decent retention. Aroma of biscuity malt, toffee, floral and herbal hops. The taste is toasted malt, caramel, citrus, earthy and herbal hops. Hints of raisin. Medium bodied, crisp, moderate carbonation, mild lingering bitterness. Solid.

mrjaxson (514) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 20, 2014
The caramel malts dominate the aroma to be like, duh, caramel, though there’s just a hint of fruit, maybe cherries? The taste is sweet throughout and there can be a chocolatey finish. Tasted from a bottle.

wxman (1769) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - NOV 19, 2014
Pours a clear pale amber/orange with an antique lace head that sticks around and laces the glass. Caramel and grass aroma. Taste is sweet caramel malt, buttered toast, a light grassy character and mild hop bitterness.

TXBadger (2658) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 22, 2014
Pours a dark amber color, with nice off-white head. Very rich and malty, caramel and toasty flavors. Just a little pine on the finish to add just the right amount of bitterness for a cold Wisconsin winter evening.

JonnyMadison (87) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 1, 2014
Bottle. Light and refreshing for a winter beer. Good off-white head and copper color. Simple and drinkable, but slightly lackluster if you are looking for something unique and flavorful.

RRistow12 (746) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Tasted from bottle. Pours a clear amber with white head. Lot of lacing on sides of the glass. Nice aroma of toffee and caramel. Great aroma for amber lager. Taste is sweet with toffee, caramel and a little bit of spice. Medium bodied with a sticky mouthfeel. Great amber lager. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
