Draft. Pours an amber body with an off white head. Bitter dry and nutty with a strange chemical note, very odd. Bread y a bit metallic with some toasted malt and a mild nutty malt tone. Eh. arrogantb (1402) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 7, 2010
I received a corked and caged bottle from a trade with a ratebeerian. This thing had a lot of carbonation! The head took a while to settle down. The color was a ruddy brown. The smell was stinky, like a muddy creek. The taste was a standard lager taste to me. Decent beer but i couldn’t get past the smell.

Tap at Barcade. Biscuity, weak aroma, a little mint and berry in there. The flavor picks up, with bright orange jam, biscuit, lettuce, and cookie. Tasty. JoeMcPhee (9517) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 21, 2009
Tap at Barcade. Deep amber pour. The nose is quite clean with a touch of light caramel and toasted malt. A little bit cereally with an unusual fruitiness on the back that seems to be malt derived. It’s fairly strange, but pretty tasty. PilsnerPeter (3050) - Flushing, New York, USA - NOV 19, 2009
Tap at Barcade: Deep amber off white film. Clean grainy aroma- some toasted & caramelized barley- not much else. Light body with rounded carbonation. Some toasted barley flavors and mild husk. Pretty clean and some some discernible U.S. hop fruitiness. A one dimensional session that is preferred over the macro offerings such as Killian’s Red.

Draft @ the nearby pub. Nothing special here, brown pour with some head. Was a better choice than the normal macros, but not by a lot. Some malt flavors and smooth texture. BREWMUSKCLES (2731) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 4, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2014 this beer is a good lager beer with malt and farina and a decent hop character and a bit of candied nut. a moderate lingering finish, the body is refreshing enough. the layered effect makes it a bit better than a lwnmower beer. weezfour (124) - Oradell, New Jersey, USA - JUN 6, 2009
Another stellar offering from Defiant. If you are in the area, definitely get your ass onto one of those bar stools. How do you beat $3.25 beers that are brewed within arms distance? Amazing. Nice and dark, bit of a bite, but still goes down smooth as anything. yobdoog (1888) - Kingston, New York, USA - APR 20, 2009
Man this used to be great. A dark rich creamy full body lager. Last time I had it at the brewery it was light, still crisp with some good flavor but definitely not the big lager it once was. I feel the batches tend to change. j12601 (13034) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 28, 2009
On tap at the Peekskill Brewery. Pours a clear brownish amber with a light tan head. Aromas of toast, and a hint of sweet malt. Mouthfeel is medium and just about empty. Light bitter finish. Essentially an unremarkable lager… I didn’t find anything in here that would make me want to drink this again, but it wasn’t bad. It just didn’t do anything
