malvrich (275) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JAN 13, 2016
12 oz. bottle with no date info found even after being told by DB that this is on the bottleneck. Tulip glass A: Beautiful pour. Clear copper color with a short lasting head and patchy lacing. Few visible bubbles. S: Malty with toffee and nut aromas. Moist brown bread. T: Taste is also malty as expected with toasted nut and a bit of caramel sweetness. Also tastes watery. M: Light body and below average (flat) carbonation does not excite the tongue IMO. Slight lingering sweetness but it is not cloying. O: Been intending to try this for a while. Now I know its just a mediocre amber lager. Watery malt taste and always expensive. OK but not impressed. Points off too for shitty (non-existent) date coding.

jbruner (4359) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - DEC 26, 2015
Pours a clear golden brown on tap with dissipating off-white head that leaves light lace. Aroma of toasted malt, caramel, and clean yeast esters. Taste is less of the caramel, more of the yeast, clean and easy. Decent stuff, good for a lager.

tillmac62 (689) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - NOV 23, 2015
BOD 8/7/15. Pours a clear medium amber with a garnet cast. Normal head volume, lacing and retention. Very light nose of biscuit with a bit of caramel. Light body with a semi-smooth texture. Perfect carbonation with a strong effervescent burst in the middle and a finely bubbled rollicking finish. The flavor profile is outstanding. This is crisp and stays crisp throughout the entire palate. It begins with a toasted biscuit with a fair amount of graininess. The middle delivers a mild bitterness and a bit of herbal noble hop flavor. From the middle on, a subtle sweetness rolls around underneath - much like the nose, biscuit with a caramel note. The crisp finish is an effervescent explosion that leaves you with a grainy toasty lingering bitterness.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 16, 2015
Pours a clear, dark golden orange color with apricot colored edges and a one finger, frothy white head. Nice retention, only slowly settling into a thick, lasting ring. Spotty lacing left behind. Floral aroma with grassy hops, straw and earth followed by pale malt, subtle spice and light fruit notes. Spicy, peppery hops with oil-y resins and pine along with bread, biscuit, grass, straw and subtle light fruit. Faint hints of apple and pear presence in the nose. An aromatic spicy hop presence elevates the aroma to above average. Clean and crisp with a spicy hop bite that lingers over the yeast, pale malt and light fruit notes into a spicy, dry finish. Slightly peppery with crisp earthy hops. Somewhat floral with dank pine needle and grass followed by bread, biscuit, pilsner malt and light fruit notes. Theres some nice apple and pear sweetness comlimenting the biscuit malts and crisp hop bitterness. Nicely balanced and easy to drink. Nothing too out of the ordinary but surprisingly flavorful and quite drinkable.
