From Dec 2006
Poured from 12oz bottle(room temp) a clear reddish gold with a large head of foam that shrank to a broken layer that remained mainly in the center of the glass.
The smell is on the weak side but I note some sweet malt.
The taste has sweet malt tones but I detect a graininess more than anything else. Further sips only enhance the taste of grain and it makes for a rather dull, imo, Lager that has a pretty decent colour for the style. This one is just *not* working favourably on my palate. Others may like it and that's a good thing but it's not working for me at all.
Bottom line: I'm not fond of this Red Lager at all. Try it and see what you think

"same qualities (ingredients) as the ale, just a touch better from the switch in fermentation method. still not impressive. underwhelming beer. average at best." mkel07 (6397) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 5, 2012
Draught at The Pub Monte Carlo in Las Vegas. Very light in the mouth with caramel and nutty biscuit flavours. Clear red to amber colour wih a slight white head. Nutt malt aromas are pleasing and this is a good all round beer without being great. coolpop (1394) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JAN 26, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2012 Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with a small off-white head. Aroma and flavor are fairly malty, quite fruity (cherry, grape), almost no hops, a little diacetyl. For what it is, quite nice. Onionkid (390) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - AUG 31, 2011
Bottle. Malty aroma. Smooth taste, fairly balanced. Enjoyed it quite a bit, wanna grab another one and get better notes on it. 4.5% alcohol.

simple but not great tasting. not very sweet, kind of bitter, and barley sour. weak palate: sub-par malt, apple, gas. part of that wack monthly beer club. Maverick34 (3304) - New York, USA - DEC 12, 2010
Bottled. Pours a red gold with smallish head. Some light hops, a bit of malts, clean finish. 3fourths (9358) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 29, 2010
bottle. clear bronze body, white head, patchy and foamy. nose is mostly clean: toasted barley, toasted wheat, light caramel resin, light semi-dried/semi-green hop cones. yeast is very mild, mostly doughy, mostly soft. moderately chewy, somewhat resinous towards the finish, has a fullness or roundness that I typical don’t like to see in lager, but as far as crispness, the lagering is evident and for the most part adds rather than affects/subtracts from the beer. overall not too bad.

Sampled at the taproom on 8/6/10. Pours clear amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma of pale malt, lager yeast and noble hops. Flavor is malt and moth balls (!) with some noble hops in the finish. danielcurtis81 (1519) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 22, 2010
Served from a 12 oz bottle thanks to JT. The appearance is a slightly hazy gold with a light brown hue. Smaller white head. The aromas are grainy with a light hop edge. The flavors are grains, a mild grape candy, light hop doses. A better premium lager if you are into one.
