16 oz draft poured on tap at Binnys South Loop (chicago, I’ll). Pours a moderate amberish hue, slight haze, moderate offwhite head that sticks around and laces, and well carbonated. Aromas are a bit or german hoppiness, light carmelized malts, a touch of malt stink. Initial has a good body for the style, light carmel malts balanced by german hoppiness, that bitters a bit on the finish, and the stink comes through. Pilsner malts? Where is the Vienna Spice? Finishes a touch toast and a touch hop. Ok, a good fresh replacement for sam adams but nothing to write home about. I am excited for and worried about this brewery at the same time. Cheers. swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - MAY 20, 2009
On tap at Hop Leaf, Chicago. Pours a light amber. Light sweet malt flavor & aroma. Not bad but there were too many others great options Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUN 21, 2009
Bottle courtesy of msante79 – thanks Mark. Pours a cloudy amber with a thin white head. The nose is caramel malt and earthy hops. The taste pretty much follows suit. Medium bodied. An ok beer. Thanks again Mark!

This one poured as you might have guessed a copper color with an off white head. Aroma was slightly roasted malts with some sweetness. Flavor was smooth german malt with some notes of grassy and herbal hops. sigh_borg (97) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Pours crystal clear gold with tiny head that dissipates quickly (maybe a bad pour?). Aroma is mild hops and malt, with some fruitness that I can’t identify. Taste is nicely balanced; primarily sweet with a hint of bitter that increases through the finish. Mouthfeel is full, more than I’m used to with a lager. Overall refreshing and solid but I wouldn’t get excited about drinking it. Don’t know why people are hating on this beer so much; perhaps I’m just not experienced enough with tasting and rating lagers.

Pours a nice golden colour with tiny white head. Aroma is hops, malt, fruits. Taste is sweet hops. Very drinkable beer.
