Bomber. Pours a clear dark chocolate color with a large off-white head. A sweet chocolaty nose, some cocoa and fruit. The flavor is mellow, caramel, some bitterness, toffee, smoke, big Munich malt. Very clean and tasty. bhensonb (15079) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 9, 2015
Bottle shared by Marcus. Pours clear, dark and ruddy with a beige head. Aroma of dark malt, perhaps with a floral hop. Near full bodied. Flavor is rather dark malt that suggets a little chocolate. It’s sweet, but not excessive or sticky, and there’s enough noble hop to keep it pleasant. popery (2170) - San Francisco, California, USA - JAN 27, 2015
The beer is a medium-dark brown color. It’s somewhat hazy. The head is tan foam. Some lacing, pretty good retention. The aroma is light caramel and toasty malt with a very pleasant nutty character. Mild sweet lemony, fruity note. The taste is lightly sweet with a touch of bitterness and very mild acidity. A little cocoa but much more of that toasty, nutty malt flavor. Finishes clean. Pleasant and easy to drink. Creamy and full for the strength of the beer. marcus (10138) - Sacramento, California, USA - FEB 9, 2015

On draught at Occidental Brewing for the 3rd Annual Humbug Lager Fest. Caramel brown color. Aroma is medium malt with some peanut and smoke. Taste is similar, with some roasted notes. Smooth finish. Prufrockstar (2132) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - FEB 6, 2015
Bottle. From notes. Appearance: clear dark brown/amberish: frothy offwhite head; some lacing. Aroma: nutty; toast; light roast. Some metal/copper right at the end, slightly astringent. Toast, light chocolate. Taste: lightly sweet, lightly bitter finish. Overall: Enjoyable. Turns out I still don’t know shit about lagers. I like this alright, but still no idea how to talk about this or what sets it apart from others. Anybody who wants to teach me, send me a message. I want to learn.
