Bottled. Poured smoky orange with a short, dense, well-retained beige head. The aroma picked up bready and a touch of molasses malt with mild earthy and soapy hoppage around.. soft, but not that interesting. The flavor found chewy bread and biscuity sweetness at the core, with mild earth and spicy bitterness around.. more bready notes and a hint of molasses on the dry finish.. well-balanced and tasty. Lighter-bodied, dry, and somewhat grainy on the palate.. OK feel and flow.. aiight stuff. mansquito (6795) - Nueva York, New York, USA - OCT 10, 2011
Lou Malnati’s, Chicago tap ($5.50): Pours an amberish color with an off-white head. Aroma is of caramel malts and a little bit of hops. Taste is pretty straightforward and was right what I needed after a very long walk. Obviously, there isn’t much in the way of hops or anything. Caramel malts throughout. Nice and crisp at the same time. Well-balanced. crossovert (13726) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 17, 2011
This one is a pretty generic American amber lager. There is literally nothing to it it isn’t mind-blowing. Ratman197 (15216) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 4, 2011
Bottle poured a clear tarnished gold with a small lasting white head. Aromas of honey, straw and a hint of spice. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a watery finish. Flavors of honey, straw and light earthiness with a smooth watery honey finish. luttonm (6634) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 12, 2011
Heavy alt-malting, rusty honey lager and what. Grainy, sweet. Full but drinkable, golden-copper and middle of road. flavorful, but tinny

Poured out of the bottle. Copperish color with very little head. Not too much going on with the aroma, slight hops and malts with a tad bit of spicyness. Didn’t pay much attention to this one and neither should you. Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - MAR 22, 2011
Bottle. Pour an amber body with an off white head. Mild head retention. Sweet malty lagered tones, with a hint of fruit. Light bitter tones, a bit herbal and floral. Light bodied with a mild sweetness to finish. DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 7, 2011
Poured into a pint glass.
3.0 A: Clear copper orange color. One and a half fingers of white head falls quickly and leaves no lacing.
3.5 S: Grainy with a strong cidery sweetness. Hops are grassy, but aren’t very powerful. The apple cider flavor, despite being considered a flaw, works very well in this one.
4.0 T: Grainy again with underlying caramel tones. The cider in the nose is only barely detectable in the taste. Again, grassy hops. Simple, yet tasty.
3.5 M: Light body. Good moderate carbonation. This could have a thicker body and be creamier, but not too bad.
4.0 D: Easy going down and refreshing. If this was meant to be super flavorful and complex, then they screwed up, but if this was meant to be a good thirst quenching beer, then they did just fine.

I like this beer as it pours dark amber. It shows ice notes of spicy hops on the upfront palate and then give a light sweet feel on the finish. I do enjoy this beer and will try it again for sure. FullObs (136) - Illinois, USA - JAN 5, 2011
120z bottle into std pint. Clear copper color, minimal head. Haven’t had a lot in this style but it’s not a bad beer. Doesn’t blow me away. Thin. A little bit of a finish that’s tough to describe - bitter maybe but not in a bad way. Reminds me a little bit of Victoria which I tried recently - I’d go with this one. May try a few more in the sytle and re-rate.
