Nice red colored lager with a creamy thick head. Taste is lacking and I really like red lagers.

Wiseblood (700) - Clarksville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 14, 2004
Dark red with a good head. Malty-sweet aroma. Hints of brown sugar, but not much else. Mild, with a thin body and no aftertaste. Looks good, but not really interesting.

Draught. Well, this beer isnt that much of a ruby color, its more like a light amber and slightly see-through. No head formation on this one after less than a minute. The nose is rather mild with sweet, grassy, hay character and something that reminds me of white bread. Very assertive papery hops are in the flavor, reminds me of wood chips. Also I detect apple peels, walnuts, dough, and straight-up malted barley. This is pretty decent for something that is so obviously a lighter lager.

A decent lager, but nothing spectacular. Light redish color with a slim head. Malty aroma. Kind of interesting malty taste. Nothing really stood out with this beer. Had this on tap at Barley's in Knoxville, TN.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - JAN 30, 2005
Draught. Good flavor just not enough of it. A light version of an amber-like lager. The finish is fairly crisp, and there is a fairly decent hop aroma.

suprchunk (2986) - Crestview, Florida, USA - APR 21, 2011
Pours a dark amber with a small white head. No lacing on my clean glass. Smells metallic and malty. A little bit of corn, sugar and cabbage. Same in the taste with a bit more in the malt. Slight bitterness mixed with a nice sweetness in the palate. Not a bad beer. Just expected a lot more for a lager, especially one with such a low abv.

Bottle. Pours amber. Aroma of caramel, nuts. Mild sweet flavor. Not bad overall.
