Originally reviewed: 10/11/10. 22oz bottle picked up at a grocery in Charlotte when I was in town a couple weeks ago. Poured into a pilsner glass. Pours a clear amber brown color with a thick 3-finger off-white head on top. Decent retention; left some sticky lace behind. Scents of caramelized malts, toasted grains, and sweet coffee. Nice. Good crisp clean feel. Refreshingly wet. But a bit heavy for the style on the finish. Slightly filling. Great flavors of toffee, fresh dark bread, balanced out with a mild hop bitterness. Slight spice noted, but it’s tame and in the background. I liked this beer a lot! Great drinkability. 22oz was not a match for me. I want more.

Poured dark amber with a thin head and some decent lacing. Aroma was bready with some sweetness. Taste was bread, caramel, and a little bitterness. Not strong on flavor.

Pours a dark amber/copper color with dark golden orange edges and a frothy two finger white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Chinks of soapy lacing left behind. Sweet, slightly earthy aroma with hints of earthy grass and floral hops countered by sweet malt noted and some light fruit. Also some biscuit/bread character. Fuller bodied than expected with a nice balance of delicate floral hops and sweet malt. Faintly toasted with hints of bread, biscuit, caramel and toffee. Floral hops add subtle spice but very little bitterness. Hints of apricot add to caramel malt sweetness. Well balanced decent session beer.

Bottle @ home, picked up in Atlanta by my bro. Thanks Jetson! Moderately hazy, amber brown appearance with a creamy, off white head. Grassy hops, straw, sweet, toasty, light caramel malty aroma. Sweet creamy, light caramel malty lager, grassy hoppy flavor. Pretty solid light lager from an american brewer.

Boring basic german lager as far as I could tell, nothing to say about spicy hops, they weren’t in the one that I had.

I liked this. Clear amber body, small white head, great lacing. Nicely balanced, with great sweet malts and significant hops. Hard to call it a lager with its amber, rather than pale appearance and with its sweet rather than dry flavor profile. I liked it, whatever it really is.

Bomber. Nose has spikes of grass and sharp citrus, otherwise mild malt and doughy yeast. Copper-brown pour with a sudsy tan head. Taste is tart, lightly bittersweet, there’s some nice celery here from the hops but the texture seems to be more important than the mild flavor (I don’t dare call it bland). Medium body is crisp and clean, reminds somewhat of a cider. Sort of a lagered Bitter with thinner malt profile.

Pours Brownish copper fades to burnt orange to gold rim, off white head, sweet malty smell. Taste is molasses but not as sweet as smell, still very malt driven. Just enough hops to keep some balance, a solid German ale with some faint raisin and German yeast kicking in. As it warms i get more hop flavor with a herbal spiciness that adds a very nice effect. Seems like a dunkel weissen but with a bunch of barley. Good beer for sure.
