Pretty amber near headless pour. Clean. Hops and bit of berries in the nose. Interesting full hopping on a fairly mild sweet body. The Led Zep guitarist still rocks! fidelis83 (2535) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 15, 2009
Pours a crisp medium red-amber with a tall off white head that has decent retention and leaves a respectable lacing. Aroma is of burnt sugar, caramel, toasted grain, crusty bread and leafy hops. Flavor is toasted grain, caramel, sweet barley, homemade crusty honey-wheat bread, a hint of floral and leafy hops, maybe just a touch of yeasty bread dough. FInish is crisp, slightly bitter and bready. Palate is thin-medium, smooth and well carbonated, leading to a dry, spicy finish. Not bad but nothing special, better viennas for a better price easily available. Reminds me of some west coast "ambers". robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 12, 2004
Amber Colored...slightly fruity. Sweet Tasting. Middle of the Road Lager. Not Terrible, worth trying anyways. ElGaucho (2401) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - JUL 10, 2003
Draught. Aroma is a bit off. First sips were not pleasant, but I had previously been having a Fosters, which is different enough to require a palate adjustment period. Light amber in color. No lace and small head. Some bitterness on the tongue but too much malty off-ness. With the exception of Finnegans, my experience with James Page's beers has been less than stellar. illinismitty (2377) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 20, 2008
Bottle from Alexsdad06. Thanks! Pours a solid medium amber with a nice beige head. Nice aroma of dark bread and lager yeast. Flavor is heavy with munich malts and bread grains with a moderate spicy bitterness to balance it out. Some toastiness on an otherwise clean finish. Not bad at all.

Bottle - small foamy head, medium amber color, sweet malty/caramel aroma and flavor, very mild hop balance - pretty standard amber lager sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 9, 2009
Tasted 09/09/09. 12oz bottle. Filtered with an amber hue. Finger width of off-white head. Faint aromas of caramel and doughy bread. Medium bodied with a very smooth malt character. Good amount of sweetness from the malts. No noticeable flaws. Sessionable and easy. Finishes with a mildly sticky sweetness. Little to no hop presence. This is not too bad! Quaffable and mild, but very drinkable. Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 13, 2005
Clear coppery/amber color, with no head at all.
Aroma, sweet, amlty, light graininess, minimal hops.
Grainy on the palate, as well, but overall clean and smooth. Light bodied, but not thin, flavor, and it’s not a bad one, remains sip after sip, gulp after gulp. Not bad at all.
A tasty little lager, when you’re not in the mood for anything more challenging.
Good crossover brew, for the less adventurous. boozedude (2229) - Des Moines, Iowa, USA - MAR 8, 2012
Kinda boring.. pours dark. Has a slight carmel taste. maybe i got a bad bottle but its pretty flat scraff (2125) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 10, 2005
Rated at 35,000 feet on a Northwest flight from Detroit to DC. Hey...it was better then ordering the Bud Light. Sparkling amber, thick creamy off-white head. All light aromas of toasted caramel, white bread, hint of butter, with a very slight roasty, fruity undertone. Decent balance, somewhat sweet though with toasted caramel and honey being predominate. No bitternees unfortunately. Medium bodied, smooth soft carbonation, lightly toasted, semi-sweet finish. Nothing great obviously, but it beat the alternative.....
