Bottle. Poured a clear brownish golden color with a large frothy off-white head that was lasting and produced good lacing. Medium toasted sweet malt and hops aroma. Medium to full body with a sticky texture and soft carbonation. Medium toasted balanced flavor with a moderate bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good complex brew for style.

551 ml brown bottle.
It pours a clear orange, the lacing is a bit dirty looking.
The smell is slightly toasty with a hint of fruitiness. There is some grain and a pinch of herbal hops as well.
The flavor is pretty solid, it has more of a hop presence than most. There is also the typical oktoberfest flavor going on, some slight toasty nuttiness and a hint of fruit.

Bottle. Light toffee malt aroma. Hazy amber color with large tan head. Slightly sweet toffee malt and lightly bitter hay flavor. Body pretty light. Not bad - straight forward. BVery (10327) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - DEC 4, 2011

My Bottom Line:
b3shine (8800) - Indiana, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Herbal hops and a delicate cereal crunch merge into a wooden finish in this cushy, friendly lager.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the misty amber shine.
-Nice cereal lengths make sure the finish is also balanced.
-Hop bitterness is minimal.
-The discreet fruitiness of oranges adds depth.
-This may not be the most memorable brew, but it is a nice go-to quencher.
16 oz bottle to pint. Looks solid; a transparent copper with fluffy off-white head that dissipates into sticky lacing. Smells solid; semi-sweet, hoppy, and malty. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. A good example of the style. JaBier (7841) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Bottle sample at the Hinterland tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 9/20/12. Clear amber pour with a medium beige head. Malty nose with crisp noble hop notes. Malty flavor with a bitter hop finish. Ughsmash (7508) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 29, 2010
Bottled. Poured light-medium orange with a short, bigger-bubbled white head. The aroma picked up lightly-toasted caramel and bready malts with odd metallic/sour fruity accents.. overall sweet and alright. The flavor found the same bready malts at the core along with slightly syrupy, yet sour fruit skins.. tacky and sour on the finish. Light-medium bodied and dry on the palate with a thicker feel than it needed.. this was either a mediocre beer or a fairly solid beer with an infection.

50cl bottle: Pours a clear deep orange amber with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a sweet, lightly toasted pale malty nose with some noble hoppy notes and a touch of graininess. Starts with pretty good fullness and fine carbonation with a light caramel sweetness and some biscuity notes with a grassy noble hop bitterness before a drier, crisp finish. True to style and quite drinkable. wlajwl (6743) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - SEP 27, 2012
The aroma is toasted malts, yeast and citrus. The flavor is malts, citrus, a hint of berries and a mildly bitter finish.
