12oz Bottle. Pours golden, white head. Decently finished and balanced lager with all the lagery bits in the right part. Blairgus (4615) - California, USA - MAR 20, 2011
orange/yellow, clear with some bubbles and frothy white head.
nose is a bready sweet lager. almost reminds me faintly of a belgian dubbel malt aroma.
thin body and very fizzy.
has a sweet lager background but with some yeasty breadiness as well. odd for a lager. it has actual flavour but i’m not sure it’s what i’m looking for in a lager asheft (3108) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2011
Fresh noble hops aroma with some biscuity caramel malt. Clear light copper appearance under a lasting, white cover. Weak caramel malt flavour that is biscuity and followed up by weak noble hops. Fairly simple and with a bitterness that is not sufficiently offset by maltiness or hoppiness. Medium to high carbonation, light to medium body, slight nutty tang finish. magsinva (1428) - Virginia, USA - APR 22, 2011
tap - overall I’d rate this beer as drinkable. It is malty with a mildly bitter finish. Pours with a decent head and leaves some nice lacing on the glass. prawlie (1676) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2011
355 mL bottle poured into a Westmalle glass at home. Orange/pale brown coloured, quite fizzy but with a short-lived head. Smells a little of malt, but also has something else to it, a bit hoppy, overall quite nice. Tastes malty, a touch sweet and a little dry, with a hint of bitterness. Personally as American lagers go I prefer Brooklyn’s offering, this is just a little bland.

Würziger Geruch, eher dunkles Aussehen. Sehr würziger Antrunk, der allerdings durch den folgenden wässrigen Durchhänger nicht ganz überzeugen kann. Im Nachgeschmack wirds dann dezent malzig, allerdings auch nur eine kurze Zeit. Ab und zu, warum nicht?

Reddish blond color with high and longlasting foam The smell is spicy, hoppy, slightly sweet.It starts spicy, with a strong hoppy bitter aftertaste... OmegaX (1383) - Florida, USA - AUG 16, 2011
Not bad. One of my first ventures into the non-typical macro brews (even though they pretty much are one now). Don’t know how much new can be said about this one. Decent beer when not much else is around and probably the only thing readily available at any restaurant. Malty, citrusy, somewhat hoppy. Semi-sweet and pleasing. Good for a beer batter as well. milehighchaos (2) - Colorado, USA - AUG 20, 2011 does not count
Good average craft lager. I keep some on hand to convert my macro drinking neighbors. Ktwse (5458) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2011
Pours light amber with a big white head that disappears quite fast and leaves little lacing. Aroma is bready malt with a hint of nuts, there’s some floral hops in there as well, but overall it leans towards the malt. Taste is a very well balanced floral bitterness with some herbs, Surprisingly, not so much malty tones in the flavor compared to the nose. Body is medium on the light side and the carbonation is a bit too heavy for my liking. I much prefer Brooklyn’s vienna to this one if we’re talking largish micro brewers.
