Bottle pours a clear amber with a tiny tan top. Scent is bread and caramel. Taste is same with a hint of spices. jcweaver (768) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours ruby with a short beige head. Flavors of sweet caramel and light earthy hops. Similar flavor. A little bland but smooth and drinkable.

thinnish looking copper pour with little head - aroma of lightly roasted malt and light grapefruit - tastes of caramel and apple. A bit thin on the palate. Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Bottle from Specs. Amber pour with an off-white head. Aroma is light orange and toast. Taste is sappy, grassy, and almost dirty. Citrus, roast finish. cblado (298) - Washington, USA - JAN 20, 2013
11 oz "stubby" bottle. Pours a orange/copper color, thin head, no lacing. Aroma is mostly a smooth caramel malt. Flavor is caramel malt, some grassy hop notes. Simple, drinkable, decent. Plus the stubby bottles are kind of fun.

Can't complain about this one. Nothing terribly special about it, just an everyday drinkable beer for the winter season. Beerenberger (1605) - Fischer, Texas, USA - JAN 16, 2013
Aroma is malt forward. Pours a reddish amber with a rapidly disisapating white head. There was more taste to this beer than I expected. Toasted malts, hints of nuts, grain, and a nice touch of spice in the finish. Medium body with minimum carbonation. Overall, I was surprised . I really enjoyed this beer.

This is a weak confused beer with lack of integrity and identity. There is a tinge of bitters, tinge of yawn. Light brown in color weak white head. Mild carbonation. Initial impression is of taquila, very little to smell. Strange & weak 4.85 BD flylikeabanana (179) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 13, 2013
A nice holiday red. Honey, hops, and pine. Soft, smooth palate. As drinkable as their lager.

11oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a clear medium brownish-red with a slight bit of chill haze. Just a small white head fading to some splotches after a couple of minutes.
A lot of grass in the aroma along with some toast and caramel much like the regular Session lager with a little extra roast.
The aroma translates well into the flavor with grass/hay up front followed by some light toast and caramel. There is a little sweetness and a thicker body than a typical amber lager might have along with some light bitterness.
Overall, a tasty amber lager and one that, as the name would suggest, is quite sessionable. One to pick up if you see it around.
