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."

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.

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.

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.
