3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from beer of the month club. A nice amber pour with an off white head that had some retention but no lace. A slightly watery appearance. Aroma had nice caramel malts upfront combined with a nice nuttiness. Some mild floral hops. Flavor initially had some nice sweet malt notes upfront and a delicate bit from the hops. Aftertaste had almost an astringent note to it that took away from the beer. Smooth finish. A decent beer ruined by the aftertaste.
APPEARANCE- Light amber color, perfectly clear. Nice white head with great lacing.
NOSE- light scent of malt, no discernible hoppiness.
FLAVOR- very slightly bitter, but no other note of hop in this beer. Smooth drinking and light body is well suited for this type of lager. Clarkdvm (509) - Florida, USA - JUL 25, 2016
Bottle in Buffalo. Says amber lager on bottle. Tastes fine. Nothing outstanding but worked well with wings. snoworsummer (5626) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 6, 2016
Bottle. Tastes like bready malt, some dried fruits, nutty, and light booze. Light/medium body and carbonation. Smells like bready malt, dried fruits, nutty, and light booze. Nekronos (4175) - Xalapa, MEXICO - JUL 5, 2016
More like an amber lager it was fine to drink. Enjoyably at all features and quite strong in some moments too. jsquire (4425) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - DEC 2, 2015
Amber color with a thin off white head. Big malty nose. Flavors of dark brown sugar, malt syrup, and some dark toast. Like most ambers, its a pretty generic beer. Nothing wrong, but nothing interesting.

Draft at UM at Canal Side. I’ve had this before, but never rated it. Wasn’t much craft selection there so I had to go with this. Pours a dark clear amber with small bubbly tan head. Aroma isn’t much. Some caramel, brown sugar, bread. Flavor was the same as the nose. Lager yeast notes. Body was light and thin texture. Average carbonation. Not very good at all.

Rated based on notes taken 9 Jun 2012 -- A standard Amber, nothing of special note. scarletfire65 (1458) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 14, 2015
Bottle at home. Aroma is caramel malts with a bit of turpentine. Pretty basic flavor profile... malt heavy, dry crisp finish, zero complexity. Passable at best but one is plenty, thank you. Caytinator (1005) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - JAN 27, 2015
Light lacing, toasty amber beer, worth a try, but I doubt you’ll find anything you haven’t tasted before. Frank (4172) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 23, 2014
This is a decent amber colored brew. It is a bit caramelly for the style maybe but is still pretty tasty and dry with solid bitterness in the finish. It has a nice noble hop character and a good bit of bready malt a well. I wasn’t sure what to expect from a lager from this brewery but this is really pretty good.
