Draft. Poured clear golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate toasted sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium sweet finish that was moderate in duration. This is a solid beer for style. seymour (2121) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - DEC 12, 2011
Tasted on tap in sampler glass. Attractive, clear light-amber color with big off-white head. Good retention, even a little lacing. Subtle floral hops aroma. Sophisticated malty-sweetness resulting from bready pale, mild caramel, and some dark toasted malts. Medium body with soft, round mouthfeel. Very clean, dry, lasting lager finish. If you like mass-market dark lagers (Amberbock, Killian’s, Dos Equis amber, etc,) you’ll like this fresh one even better. blipp (9902) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAR 12, 2011

I had this from a 12oz bottle.
Nice orangey color, some good maltiness made this beer nicely drinkable. alexanderj (3605) - Branson, Missouri, USA - FEB 12, 2010
On tap; poured a dark amber color. Bready, earthy and yeasty. Flavor was dry and actually solid for the style. Solidly hopped for style, with some grass and earth. Bready and biscuit. GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - MAR 2, 2008
Draft at the brewpub (Phoenix location). Poured a clear medium orange color. Head was off white with good retention. Some lace was left behind at the end. The aroma was of noble and grassy hops, brown sugar, and toffee. Delicately sweet up front with a dried and slightly bitter finish (bitterness peaked at about 3 out of 10). The flavor palate included dominant grassy hop, subdued molasses, brown sugar elements. Pretty good. mjg74 (3199) - La Mesa, California, USA - FEB 29, 2008
