Bottle. A- Caramel, malty, toast. A- Red brown color, clear liquid, tan head. T- Toasted caramel, malty. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, malty finish. O- Shocked by how much I enjoyed this considering its an Amber Lager from Leinenkugel. Very easy to drink and balanced. Nice blend of bitterness and maltiness and full of toasted caramel notes. Not bad at all.

Bottle in La Crosse, WI. Slightly toasty aroma with faint hazelnut and red fruit. Clear, dark mahogany under a thin, off-white collar and patch. Sweet, buttery nutty flavor that quickly dries out with a slight carbonic bite. Flavorful yet delicate and well balanced. Medium light body, medium carbonation, crisp.

Pours a dark brown with a thin white head. Aroma is caramel, toffee, some roast, and earthy hops. Flavor has a metallic tinge to it, with toffee and caramel dominant, along with some earthy hops. Has a very low bitterness and a thin body. Decent.

chinchill (4424) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 2, 2016
12 oz bottle poured in pint glass. (from notes) A - fine looking, mahogany color; clear. Nice off-white head but too short lived. S - like the taste, main aroma is toasted malts T - no flaws, yet not an exceptional brew worthy of strong recommendation. Minimal hop presence. malty aftertaste. M - smooth and, as advertised, a bit creamy.

Fredis23 (564) - Hickory Hills, Illinois, USA - DEC 15, 2015
Almost Black With Shades Of Red, Medium Small Head, No Lacing. Faint Toasted Malt Aroma. Taste of Toasted Malt, Vanilla, Coffee Like Bitter Finish. Vanilla Gives Creamy Feeling, Although it is Thinner Than Looks And Taste Suggest. Decent Enough To Enjoy. OK.

superspak (4864) - Michigan, USA - OCT 27, 2015
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, best before 8/17/2015. Pours crystal clear dark reddish brown color with a 1 finger dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, dark bread, light smoke, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of roast/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, dark bread, light smoke, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, dark bread, light smoke, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity, robustness, and balance of roast/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Very clean on lager flavors with minimal yeast ester notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/bready, and lightly sticky/chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.9%. Overall this is a very good schwarzbier style. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of roast/bready malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; and very smooth, clean, and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
