Light copper pour with an off-white head. Aroma is malt. Taste is a light sweet malt, crisp finish, light biscuit. Nice lacing. RobertDale (6480) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - NOV 7, 2014
12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear reddish gold with a nice white head. Aroma of malt, fruit, and grass. Taste is malt, grain, grass, fruit, and some caramel. Pretty good. jayzz (481) - Illinois, USA - JUL 5, 2014
Enjoyable light tasting beer without a lot of bitter in the long finish. Clear, cold and foamy. wxman (1820) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - JUL 5, 2014
On tap at Global Brew. Pours a clear golden with a big white head. Bread dough and mild hop aroma. Sweet malt taste, dough again, slight grassiness, crackers and mild hop bitterness. A really good lager!

Reviewed from notes as I just found this next to the previous beer I just reviewed from my brother in law who lives in IL.
The three beers I had of this was poured into pilseners every time.
The appearance was a nice looking amber to copper color with a decent half fingered white foamy head that died practically immediately.
The smell had a decent looking roasted malt to bitter hops, it seemed well balanced to me. As it warms, there’s even a slight spiciness to it.
The taste had a nice sweet yet crisp maltiness running about my tastebuds. It seemed like the aftertaste had a long sweet roastiness running about it. There was a quick yet crisp dry finish.
On the palate, this one sits about a medium in body and shows a decent sessionability about it.
Overall, is this an altbier or a Vienna lager? Uh...kinda like the commercial description, I honestly don’t care as I’d have this again and would love to have it with some pepperoni and mushroom pizza. cubs (10635) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Bottle @ home via rotbox, thanks to TheAlum (I think). Pours a burnt orange appearance with a thin light brown head. A lot of toasty and husky grains in the nose. A fair amount of sweetness and a touch of citrus. Some grass. Decent mouth feel and finish but there is a lot of sweetness on the tongue. Grassy and doughy. Honey and toast. Decent carbonation. A bit old but decent. Christpuncher (3135) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2014
A very malty lager. An average beer at best , very hearty in flavor. Smells terrible and has a bitter finish. Had at oshaunasseys

Sample at Hopleaf. Clear amber color with a thin white head that recedes steadily. Spotty lacing. Aroma of malt, caramel and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of bready malt, caramel and mild grassy hops. The finish is sweet with a roast malt aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Pours a nice golden colour with tiny white head. Aroma is hops, malt, fruits. Taste is sweet hops. Very drinkable beer.
crystal clear gold with tiny head that dissipates quickly (maybe a bad pour?).
