12oz bottle. I’m not huge on lagers, but I’ve been loving this one. Pours a dark/reddish hay with a slight head. Smells and tastes more like a toasty pilsner. As a "Spring" beer i think it does the job perfectly. Light, refreshing, nothing offensive. wheninhell (488) - chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2007

Thanks again guys! Braudog (6906) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - APR 23, 2008
Bottle. Poured with quite a roar of carbonation that quickly turned into a meow. The aroma is quite biscuity, like freshly baked dark bread. Drinks with a full caramel coke, rich and malty, and a kiss of hop at the finish. (#3432, 4/23/2008) MacDaddyOJake (274) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 20, 2007
A surprise hoppiness hit me when I opened the bottle. Slight fruityness to the aroma that almost had a hint of berries. Taste was similar but was rounded out by a malty backbone. I hope to see this in 6-packs as I could easily drink a few in one sitting and not tire of it one bit! Cletus (6368) - Connecticut, USA - AUG 7, 2009
Pours copper with a thin off white head. Smells of toasted malt, some spicy hop notes, peppery. Tastes nutty with some toasted malt notes and a spicy bitterness on the finish.

Reddish-bown body with a light white head. Grassy and corn-on-the-cob aroma. Heavy grasses and hops in the taste, the hops mute the grasses somewhat. Corn-on-the-cob ending. Very nice for a lager. crzybob77 (530) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 24, 2006
Was pleasantly suprised at the nice hop balance of this beer. Generally i would have thought of a spring lager as a being crisp, light, and malty, but this takes that and adds respectable hop backbone. Cheers. Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - APR 17, 2008
At long last, the elusive spring lager that I’ve been missing for years. Deep gold in color, decent head, clear. Aroma was sweet honey accented malts and some floral hops. Flavor matched, definitely pushing on the sweet honey side of the malt world. Hop focused with some balancing noble hops on the finish. Nicely done brew, just a touch sweeter than I like. I would have preferred things to be a bit cleaner. TheBeerGod (6284) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - MAY 30, 2005
Draft at the Green Leafe in Williamsburg on 5-29-05. Copper bodied with a small white head. Nose is caramel, malts, light grassy hops, and light cocoa. Taste brings out light caramel notes, creamy malts, mild hoppiness, dried fruits (for some reason I could swear I picked up melon), light cocoa and tea leaves. Body is medium with a light carbonation feel. Finishes with creamy maltiness, light cocoa, bigger fruitiness, light hops, brown sugar and thinned caramel.

Puored from a 12oz bottle a dark amber with a beige head. I had floral/grassy hops in the nose. The same grassy hops were in the flavor with a touch of sweet malts.
