Bottle. Reddish with a thin white head and lots of lacing. Fuller flavoured than you would expect. Rather speedy and soon gone finish 3fourths (9367) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 3, 2011
bottle. 3.8% vienna, thank you heater allen. clear light chestnut colored body. light grassy noble hop notes in the nose with a toasty / biscuit vienna-like character. light body and thinner than it should be, so it’s a bit out of balance and has a watery feeling to it, and the malt is rougher than the other Heater Allen lagers. grassy and green flavor with an herbal tea nature. pleasant and interesting but ultimately it’s just simple field beer, and doesn’t match the quality of the coastal and the pilsner. hayduke (5731) - Eureka, California, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Shared with Strykzone via Facebook Chat. Pours a very clear light amber with a good sized white head. Nose is a very clean smelling caramel malts with some grassy and floral hops and some light fruit. Body is medium and the mouthfeel is exceptionally smooth. The flavor is mild, yet flavorful, with a hop character and finish that delights the senses. Shows you can make a lower alcohol brew that tastes good if done with tender loving care which this one was obviously was. Strykzone (7800) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 9, 2011
22 oz. bottle from Hayduke as part of our open trading series. We shared bottles via facebook chat. This had plenty of yeast sediment on the bottom of the bottle and fortunately I rolled mine. That caused considerable haze in the orange brown beer. A light colored tan head was one finger and never completely left. The nose was soft sweet fruit with caramel. Those were also tasted. The fruit was complex and sweet. Very nice. Bready caramel and soft bittering hops. The finish brought out some gentle spice. This was very subtle and very well brewed. A credit to beer craftmanship, especially when that 3.8% ABV is considered. bvc (1244) - Washington, USA - NOV 22, 2010
22oz bomber that I picked up at Belmont last Saturday. Pours a clear bright light amber with a orange/copper tint and decent size bright white head that is medium to loose in bubble size and settles down to a small loose layer. Bright lightly malted nose, ample amounts of grassy hop, some light orange and caramel. Crisp and light in the mouth feel and ample carbonation. Some bready malt, touch of caramel and bright grassy hop character. A touch vegital but still enjoyable to drink.

On tap at Horse Brass. Nice clear amber pour with a nice bone-white head. Nice malt and bread aromas and flavors with a bit of a hop grassiness. Not a bad beer, but probably my least favorite from Heater-Allen so far. beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - FEB 16, 2009
On tap at Bailey’s taproom. Dark copper pour, good clarity, with a smooth white head. Excellent maltiness up front. Toasted malts, caramel, and a touch bready. Hops were grassy and gave the beer a slight pilsner-like crispness. Clean and really well balanced. boFNjackson (4230) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 12, 2009
Tap @ Bailey’s Taproom... Poured amber with a white head. Aroma of malt grains. Smooth, subtly carbonated palate with flavors of malted grains and caramel and/or toffee, A little hop bitterness for balance making this a very drinkable brew. Grainy, biscuit-like finish.
