Bottle: Pours a gorgeous hazy deep rusty copper with a monstrous lacing/pillowy tan head. Great looking beer. The aroma is zesty, clean, bread crust, a sweeter dark bready note, lots of fresh lemon zest/rind. Nice! Has body is lively and crisp yet substantial. The flavor has an amazing malt depth. Both clean and flavorful. Crisp upfront with notes of lemon zest-like hop spiciness, followed by a subtle toffee note in the back with other malt subtleties/complexities. Toasted bread crust, subtle vanilla, toasted almond and a long peppery/zesty hop finish. An awesome, hoppy lager with great malt character!

Got to say it. I really fucking enjoyed this lager. Pours slightly cloudy orange-amber with a small white head. Nose of citrus (grapefruit, clementines, meyer lemon of note), floral, light bread/toast, hay. Flavor is very clean yet very full with the hops and malt in perfect balance. Crisp and dry finish. jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Murky orange-amber with good, delicate, flotsam, off-white head, decent legs / Sweet, malty nose of sour malt, honey, brown sugar, cooked citrus / Medium body, malty, moderate sweetness, lightly sour, good hop balance and bitter finish / Malty flavors of sour malt, bread, caramel, turning apple, dry hops, nutmeg, light clove / Not the sort of beer that I typically go for - malty, sweet, muted fruit, but this one grew on me. Nicely balanced. Would be nice on the patio in October. notalush (5910) - Lakewood, Colorado, USA - SEP 6, 2008
A very hazy copper pour, with a soapy, lasting head - interesting and complex aroma of grapefruit, bread, brown sugar, floral notes, hay, a lot of earthy, musty character - the fact that they left this unfiltered has given the beer a lot of earthy complexities in the flavor - smooth, creamy mouthfeel, with a medium body - strong, leafy, herbal hops - a little bit of tartness - bready malts, spices, a bit of fruity character, notes of rye, toasted grains, even hints of smoke at times - grapefruit pulp and a touch of citric acidity arrive late - an interesting and tasty beer - this is no premium lager, though - it is definitely a kellerbier. (Note to the brewer, though: quit it with the pretentious names for your beers) santos999 (318) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2008
Bottle at Earth. Cloudy darker copper body with a rich and frothy off-white head. The smell is a bit subdued, but has notes of pine-sol, grass and honey. The taste is much different and packed full of flavor. Grains galore with a really rich caramel and bread base. The hops come through well with some pine and grass. The finish is clean and refreshing without a lot of the overly crisp lager notes. I really dig this brew and can’t wait to try more from High & Mighty.

Pours orange with a huge rocky head. Nose is floral hops, some lemon zest, honey. Flavor is bitter flower petals, some sour citrus, soft caramel. This beer is under-rated. Awesome! DrDavid (957) - Johnson, Vermont, USA - SEP 10, 2008
(Bottle). Aroma is hoppy and citrus, along with some yeasty malt. Very hazy orange amber in color, with a creamy off-white head that leaves quite pretty lacing. Flavor is very hoppy and citrus, but it’s also supported by lager breadiness and malt. Very pleasant hoppy finish. Overall, a bit of a hybrid brew. Different and excellent. nhorween (645) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 23, 2008
Bottled on June 4, 08. Chunky rusty amber color with a dense creamy head. Lemony, orangina like hop-forward aroma. Clean and slightly toasty with light caramel. Surprisingly full nose for a lager of any kind, in my experience. Round and hugely clean flavor, with a pithy, bitter citrus finish. Bready malts and slightly yeasty - nice lacing, by the way. Mushy and chewy, with a grassy and herbal component. Soft finish. Really well balanced and very drinkable. As flavorful and interesting a lager as I’ve had.

This is what a lager should be. A gold/bronze color with a powerful thick head. The malty fruity smell is subtle as are the bitter grassy hops taste. I wish I could find a bar with this on tap because I could drink it all night. joeymacaroni (309) - Wagontown, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2008
tap @ drafting room. pours a nice golden color with a frothy white head. aromas of citrus, yeast, and floral notes. taste is very hoppy, mostly floral and citrus notes. lemon, grapefruit, yeast, wheat. lingering, bitter aftertaste. i would have thought it was a belgian strong ale or something. odd, but good.
