Draught at Carolina Ale House in Durham, NC. Clear golden color with bubbly white head. Grainy nose with a hint of spicy hops. Slightly sweet with a nice grainy aftertaste that is a bit buttery. Crisp finish with perfect amount of carbonation for the style. Very good beer. wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - OCT 21, 2002
Has a taste similar to a pilsener, but not quite
as crisp. Caramel detected but not very strong.
I love this brewery, but this is clearly not their best
beer. hurleymanvw (101) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - SEP 14, 2004
Amber colored beer with a slight white head. Caramel and coffee flavor. Had a slight hop aftertaste. Nice beer good for a drink or two. boto (2249) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - MAY 5, 2003
Bottle: Kind of suprised by this beer. Light copper in color. Fairly decent head on it. I do get a bit of caramel in the aroma. Also some malt sweetness and hops. Similar tastes. The beer is very smooth and well rounded, with a slight bitterness at the end. Overall, a pretty decent offering. Libeerian (209) - Garner, North Carolina, USA - SEP 3, 2003
Amber-gold brew topped by a thick head. Big Vienna malt nose. Nice malty flavor with good hop backup (perhaps too good). Dry malt finish.

Dark straw pour with medium white head and big carbonation bubbles. Aroma of malt and hopcit. Tastes malty/honeyish, with some hopcit and slight fruit at the finish. Dorwart (2595) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - SEP 8, 2005
Large bubbly off-white head. King of chunky. Light malts and hops with a bit of sweetness. Color is a dark orange. Wow. Much more hops in the flavor than expected and from the aroma. Quite nice and hoppy. Little bit of orange and flowers. Quite bitte flavor and finish. Slick and oily at the finish with more bitterness. A decent brew. brownaler (673) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - APR 24, 2004
A good lager from CBC. The flavor has loads of character even though the flavor seems too dull from trying to round it out. Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 26, 2005
Dark gold with a strong white head. Smells sweet and nutty with a dose of caramel. Very clean flavors, but it came across as a bit watery and lacking in body. Sweet, somewhat fruity beginning leads to a slight balancing bitterness in the end. tkaufman (128) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - JUL 6, 2003
Had this on tap in Hilton Head and it was pretty uninspiring. Very little in the way of hop aroma or flavor and the malt flavor is subtle at best.
