Well I guess this is the first rate. Nose is rather sweet for a lager, smells a lot more like a golden ale to me with notes of somewhat sweet grain and thats about it plus some residual sugars. Does not smell clean like a lager should. Muddy off golden pour no head or lace. Medium malty sweetness dominates the flavor. Light earthy hops in the finish. Not clean like I was expecting. Much like a golden ale. Not bad or flawed, but seemingly not to style, definitely needs work. BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - OCT 11, 2010

Light amber in color, clear with a thin head. Lots of roasty malt in the nose with light hops. Loved the lager flavor of this beer. You can drink this all day. Tasty and fresh this was great. Very smooth in the finish.
25 dec 2012, can. Light amber, clear, steady bubbles. Nose is caramel malt and kind of metallic. Thin body and fizzy. Really is metallic. Kind of tartly so. There is some bubble gum in there but it is tart and metallic and unpleasant.

Serving: 12 oz. bottle from 5000. Thanks Andre! It pours a very dark amber pour with a decent off white head. The nose reminds me more of an amber ale with a slight fruitiness, a touch of dough, and a light touch of hops. The flavor has a touch of butter with hints of bread and light leafy hops. A little malty for a premium lager but still pretty decent. Medium body with average carbonation and a lingering malty finish. Not bad. bitbucket (2165) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - MAR 15, 2013
Pint can. Pours clear orange-amber with a respectable white head. Aroma of biscuit, caramel, hay, fruit. The taste follows that lineup pretty closely. Not quite crisp finish of oranges and bit of pine.

Pours copper with a etched sheet of light cream. Smells like some kinda chinese food. Maybe like a cheap sweet and sour. WTF?! Taste is sweet with some cream, some crystal malts, a really nice marzen flavor - too bad the nose is such as it is. Medium bodied with lighter carb and a moderately dry finish. In spite of the nose, I might drink again, but not on the quality, on the intrigue. mnmike (1086) - Minnesota, USA - APR 24, 2013
My brother bought this when I told him to pick out a beer that "looks" the best. I guess I have to be more specific... txspartan (1080) - Berchem, BELGIUM - AUG 9, 2012
Rather horrible liquid metal. Maybe they needed to clean the pipes but it was pretty much all metal. CampesinoTino (800) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 29, 2012
Tall Boy Can. Pale copper colored in appearance with substantial sea foam head. The aroma blends caramel, toasted grain and medicinal hops notes. The taste starts out with some nutty malt and caramel flavors along with notes of earthy hops and apple cider. The body has some light creaminess to it with heavy carbonation and more malt sweetness and grains in the finish. A good beer to pair with spicy food and BBQ trujahwarrior (510) - Monroe, Washington, USA - AUG 15, 2012
On tap Pours an amber color with a medium white head. Smells of malt and light hops. Tastes like a good craft lager with a good hop finish. Mouthfeel is light and smooth. Overall it a pretty tasty lager.
