Appearance: clear caramel amber with one finger of tight, creamy, light tan head that sticks around and leaves good lacing. Aroma: malty, slightly sweet, with a bit of honeyed cereal grains and some slightly earthy hops. Taste: light toast, caramel malts, cereal, light but present hops, hint of creamed corn. Finish: clean, crisp, with lingering malts and a hint of roasted nuts. Notes: Outstanding beer. Extremely drinkable with balanced flavors that are assertive for the style. One of my new favorite amber lagers.

Pours a clear orange/gold color with 2 inch foamy head that sloooowly recedes - very attractive in the glass. Nose is mostly malt with some sweetness/breadiness. Taste is very pleasant - predominantly malt, but with some caramel and a touch of bitterness on the finish. Seems like this would be a great "go-to" beer for everyday drinking.

This beer surprised me. It had a nice aroma, but the malt jumped out. It was NOT sweet. Just nice malt flavor balanced with a bitterness that is seems small but builds up on your palette. There is a bit of mineral flavor as well.
I have to say, I will buy another six pack and re-taste this beer kkleu357 (640) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 9, 2014
One a free 4 pack at Steve’s on University. Thanks! Lite amber color, two inch head. Has a malty funny sour smell. Nice mellow, smooth flavor. Decent bitterness. The funky sour smell doesn’t translate to the taste, which us good. Would without a doubt take another free 4 pack if given one. MetalNHopHead (2257) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - JAN 2, 2014
A very palatable lager. Nice amber color with a good-looking head. Smooth toasted malts with hints of caramel and biscuit. It has a good hoppiness, as well. In a style as vast as this one, this beer doesn’t particularly stand out but it’s still a solid performer. Definitely would be happy to drink it again.

This is one of my favorites. Local Milwaukee brew. Toasted flavor with just the right amount of hops. Clean appearance and very smooth. One of my go to beers. SSSteve (4006) - - DEC 1, 2013

Nice clear reddish pour with a modest soft head. Aroma and taste blend for caramel sweetness in nose and mouth. Hops are prevalent and end well. Cousin_Larry (895) - - NOV 23, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 24, 2013 Had this one on tap at Mama Mia’s in Mequon. Reddish color with no head. Has a nice sweetness and malty flavor. Good. DuffMan (10751) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 25, 2013
On tap @ the Über Tap Room in the Wisconsin Cheese Shop, Milwaukee. Bland sweetish caramel with wintergreen notes. Odd.
