UPDATED: FEB 26, 2008 Draft. Kudos to the Carlos O’Kelly’s in Ft. Wayne for supporting a local beer! This has an interesting brown color, nearly ochre; or, auburn if you will. The glass had little head left by the time my server brought it. It has a spicy body that goes beyond the usual “amber.” Extra malty, but not roasty (except in the smell), with kind of an orangey note. The hop profile comes in midway through, reminiscent of a pale ale with cinnamon and maybe some grapefruit.

At RedRobin. Smooth caramel and malt upfront with a quick finish. Smooth with No aftertaste ---Rated via Beer Buddy

355ml bottle. Amber pour. This seems infected, seems like a thing among indiana breweries.

Pours a red amber, good carbonation and a lace head. Sweet and sticky aroma. Unpleasant sweet malt taste, slight celery flavor. Very sticky mouthfeel.

Dogbrick (13013) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 9, 2015
Sample at the Ft. Wayne brewpub. Murky brownish-amber color with a medium thin light beige head that recedes steadily to an outer ring. Small patches of lace. Roasted malt, yeast and fruit in the nose. Light-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, fruit and slight hops. The finish is sweet with a short malty aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Draft sampler pours golden with a white head. Aroma and taste of malts and yeast.

Draft - Caramel and light grains. Clear copper with a rich beige head. Caramel, orange, light grains and the slightest hop notes. Simple and easy drinking.

Draft to taster at the brewpub. Looks decent; a semi-transparent orange with thin eggshell lacing. Very soft carbonation, especially for a lager. Smells of lager yeast and mild grain. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Okay.

JStax (6504) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - APR 20, 2014
Draft pour. Clear amber color, no head. Grassy, herbal, a little lemony. Taste is mostly sweet, but becomes a touch bitter toward the finish. Low carbonation. Light to medium body.

2.9
DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Taster on tap at the brewpub. Caramel malts, some spiciness. Light hint of citrus. Hazy auburn color. Minimal off-white head, no lace. Bigger bitter taste, light sweet taste, light bite in the finish. Light-medium body. Lightly sticky, more dry. Lighter carbonation. Kind of soft. Alright amber lager. Grew on me as I went. More complexity and bitterness than your typical amber lager.

A very foamy pouring beer with a very sour aftertaste. The lable says smooth but the beer doesn’t.
