This beer is okay for a lager. More interesting than a lot of the competition. There is a little bit of nice malt flavor and the color is nice. Other than that, I wouldnt savor this one for too long. Down it and get another!

Amber poor with decent head.. lots of carbonation. Metallic taste as all this brewers beers have. Could taste some hops though drank it all...

Clear, orange copper pour. decent white head and gentle lacing. med-high carbonation. Some earthy hop and malt aromas, which match the flavor. Malty, with some piney hop flavor on the back. A bit of bitterness. Well balanced. Hop flavor not as pronounced but similar to Sammy Noble Pils. Generally a good, but not great, beer.

"Perfect balance of caramel malt sweetness and hop bitterness. Look for a rich amber color and medium body." Purchased at Lowes Foods, Greenville, NC Great flavor; smooth.

Not too bad. Could be a bit more hoppy or sweeter or something. Pretty good balance though overall, with a nice aroma.

Not much to the beer, a typical lager. Gorgeous color and thats about it. Little aroma, medium body, light hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice amber, but not much from its bouquet. Average at best. Not memorable and its taste was watery.
