This smooth lager strikes a delicate balance between malt and hops in the aroma, palate, finish and body. It has more body and less hops than a Pilsner, and less malt and more hops than a Munich style lager. 30 IBU.

Travlr (26075) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 22, 2010
Dark amber color with a medium white head that settles quickly and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma of licorice and black pepper. Flavor has licorice, lots of hops and lots of malts. Could be better balanced.

Old rating copied over from another site.

Poured into a nonic pint, this is a fairly clear beer, amber in color with a finger of soapy off-white head. A nice bread character to it. Earthy and slightly citrusy hops (orange peel, for the most part), and a subtle toasted character. A touch of pepper is there and maybe a hint of grass. Flavor is surprisingly heavy on the citrus peel and grass. A slight hop bitterness with a decent earthy quality. Bread, toast, and hints of toffee provide the malt character. yeast is also prominent. Light to medium in body with a moderate carbonation. Easy to drink, clean, and crisp.

bhensonb (15756) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 16, 2009
Bottle from Archer Liquors. Light copper color with a transient, temporarily impressive off-white head. Aromas of pale malt and saaz? hop. Near medium body with fizzy/frothy carbonation. Flavor is amazingly bitter, almost overpowering the light malt. Comes a bit bready, but finishes nicely bitter and fairly dry. 30 IBU seems a good number.

djd07 (15544) - Houston, Texas, USA - FEB 18, 2015
Bottle as shown. Pours a clear gold with small white head that lasts. The aroma is a fruity hop and biscuit. Thin mouth with toasty malt, light fruit, grass, light dry finish. Good.

Bottle courtesy of Doodler (thanks Scott) poured a clear orange amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of bread dough, earthiness and light fruittiness. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp. Flavors of bread and light earthiness with a crisp finish.
