Malty, light bodied, somewhat fruity. But thats about it. Very mediocre beer. csaso (2266) - Missouri, USA - DEC 11, 2013
Bottle - small foamy head, medium amber color, sweet malty/caramel aroma and flavor, very mild hop balance - pretty standard amber lager joet (2604) - Wilsonville, Oregon, USA - JAN 7, 2002
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! PorterPounder (7894) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 11, 2002
UPDATED: APR 13, 2006 Rerate Had on a Northwest flight from a can this time. Not as impressed, slight funk in the aroma, thin mouthfeel, not as much caramel flavor. Light copper color.Original 3.7 Hearty, malty, rich. Deep amber color with a hint of caramel. Smooth finish. Jayson2425 (167) - Box Elder, South Dakota, USA - APR 12, 2004
I was told this was a good beer and it was not too bad. Has a dry taste to it. The appearence looks good and has a nice aroma

Decent beer overall, this one pours a brownish amber colour with a nice soft sticky beige head. Noticeabley sweet malts midpalate. with prevalent aromas of balanced hops, cranberries and red licorice. colts9016 (198) - Idaho, USA - NOV 20, 2008

Overall not to bad but not great CanIHave4Beers (4184) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - APR 11, 2011
This exceptionally nice looking beer pours a deep rust color with a big tight white head and lots of great lacing on the glass. The aroma is earthy, floral, and fairly soapy. It doesn’t smell terrible but it’s not the most inviting of aromas in a beer. The flavor reminds me a bit of the aroma, it’s got lots of floral bitterness and rosewater. The beer is astringent and lacking in much malt flavor or complexity. The beer isn’t very well balanced and leaves me wanting for the malty well crafted Amber Lagers of WI. The beer admittedly gains some mild malt flavor, gets fruitier, and a lot less astringent once it warms a bit, but it retains the messiness of the first sip a little too well.

Had it on a plane and I was desperate for a brew. 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.
