Emeister84 (2414) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Aromas of toast, apple butter, and toffee. Clear, dark gold, with low retaining white head. Toasty, nutty, and dry, with prevalent, tannic, hop bitterness. Light-medium body, decent carbonation, finishes with clean, dry malty tones.

On draft at 11th Street Taphouse in Virginia Beach. The pour is a darker amber color, quite clear and thin without any head or lace. There is a few bubbles rising up from the bottom. The aroma is also really thin and light. There is a sweet maltiness and a light caramel, but thats about it. Its sweet and caramel dominated. I like that there isnt any metallic to it as some others have. The flavor is much of the same. Very light and single-dimensional. Caramel malts and a light toast up front and a relatively sharp fall off from that to nothing. The mouth feel is watery and not very carbonated at all with a lingering sweetness. This isnt terrible, but I wish it had more staying power.

Decent lager, with a strong sweet malt backbone. Difficult/unique taste to describe, it's slightly vanilla and slightly caramel. Decent, but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle. Pours amber with tall, long-lasting, fluffy white head. Aroma is of grassy hops and caramel and biscuit malt. Body is medium and smooth. Grassy hops and caramel malt nicely balanced on the palate. Finish is long and semidry. Nice session brew.

To the Brewers at Devils Backbone, congrats on an outstanding lager! I like this one! A little mist escapes the bottle after I pop the cap. Pours a beautiful amber color with a healthy and loud off-white head that dissipates quickly with a wee bit of lacing. Subtle bouquet of a lager and malts. Great refreshing lager taste and feel in the palate! This is an outstanding lager that goes down easy. I really enjoyed it!
