Clear copper body. Off-white creamy head. Aroma is of soda crackers mixed with hotel room and dry light chocolate. taste is fizzy and moderate sweet. Then a little bit of rye dryness kicks in. This is a little dark for a pale lager, but I think that probably added only good things to the flavor.

Holdwine (1237) - Beertimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 7, 2009
Wet grainy nose. More orange pour than most lagers. Actually doesn’t taste that bad. A little watery, but plenty of grain on the tongue. taste quickly departs.

This came from the BOM club. Really not that good. Oh well. How much can you say about a beer you will probably never drink again?

Golden-amber with thin head. Graniy aroma. Balanced with mild sweet fruity malts and faint hops. Smooth, refreshing, & dry.

This beer is really pretty decent, but still nothing much to it. I like some more complexity.

kimcgolf (872) - Dacula, Georgia, USA - JUL 29, 2007
Pours from the bottle to a nice copper color, but thin white head sdissipates quickly and leaves no lacing. Faint hoppy, grainy aroma truns quickly to a stale scent. Mouthfeel is bland and taste is absent, all leading to a short, stale, dry finish. This is a step above the BMC lagers...but not much. Unfortunately, this would not even make a good session beer.

grimreeser (797) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 30, 2006
Pours orange amber with little head. Aroma is weak, can’t distinguish anything. Very watery. Not much to this one.

3.5
buckybeer (666) - Eau Claire, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 9, 2006
Better than I thought it would be. Pours a medium amber with a small head. Aroma is light malt and very light hops. Taste seems a tad watered down but is still pretty good. Light malts and hops.

2.2
shendrix (478) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 7, 2008
A none too impressive lager, tasting largely of malty corn. The Beer of the Month people need to try a little harder.

I was impressed by this beer. The bottle did not scream try me, but I figured why not. Pours a dark orange with an off-white head. There’s a hint of coffee in the aroma, but that’s about it. The taste was above average. Bold up front with a smooth finish. A touch of citrus?
