Total Wine, Chantilly 12oz ($2): Pours an amber color with a white head. Aroma is caramel malts and a bit of hops. Taste is mostly caramel malts. Subdued sweetness is present throughout. No off-notes. This is a simple session and seems to only want to be a simple session. For that, I can’t fault this beer. Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - MAY 1, 2012
Originally reviewed: 11/15/08. Picked this up from a ’make your own’ sixer from the Fresh Market.
Pours a deep gold with a pretty small head. This dissipates to a thin sheet, but leaves a moderate amount of lacing.
Smells of nice floral hops and fresh biscuits. This has a great scent to it. It’s very inviting.
I dig the taste of this. I usually prefer ales over lagers, but this is one well-crafted lager. It has a nice amount of hop bitterness coming through that lagers usually lack. This comes across more like an APA, which is probably why I dig it. There’s a nice balance to it as some of the creamy sweetness also pulls through.
I’ve really come to like the brews from this "local" brewery. This one is no exception. Great beer that I recommend you give a go. hellbilly (3247) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - APR 16, 2012
bottle bb nov,2011 from ingles sylva on 7/11/11.
pale honey color with a clingy ow head.
aromas of sulfur, lemon, grain and spice.
more of the same in the flavor along with some orange, a tanginess akin to spoiled apple juice and a slight tartness on the finish. fruity mid palate, dry on the finish.
not bad... not really anything... 5/3/6/3/13 Sevenlee (1846) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - APR 1, 2012
Pours a slightly cloudy amber with a frothy off-white head. Aroma is malt, caramel and some floral hops. Taste is also malty with hints of caramel leading to a light hoppy finish. OK. Stldsf1 (616) - Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Amber color with some fruity and earty after notes. It's an ok lager. It has a little different palate than most which makes it worth a try.

Bottle from giant sterling. Pours orange with a half an inch of white foam. A bit citrusy on the nose. Pretty smooth on the tongue with a slight hint of malt sweetness on the finish. It’s not lager but it could be worse. unclemattie (4357) - Georgia, USA - NOV 23, 2011
12oz twist-off bottle. Light orange-amber color. Thin white head. Hint of cardboard in the nose. Finishes with a bit of fruit, sharp bitterness. Lots of crispness. Flavor of toast, sweet malt, and woody tannins. A good summer Lager. jeremytoni (3082) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - NOV 6, 2011
From a bottle poured an amber color with a small amount of head. Light malty flavor with a quick finish. jcr (2744) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - OCT 28, 2011
Bottle. Amber body. Fizzy, white head. Aroma of toasted grain, vegetables with a hint of caramel. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly bitter. Medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Some biscuit taste along with canned vegetables. Hint of caramel, grain. Drinkable, but average. bochi23 (116) - Virginia, USA - SEP 26, 2011
Tasty but not overwhelming with flavor. In fact, I like this beer when it is rolling around on my palate but the flavor goes away really quickly. That’s my biggest critique.
