12oz bottle. Beer pours a clear golden color. The aroma is malts, grain, caramel. Flavor is a light caramel, with notes of sugar and grain. TheOrange (479) - Kent, Ohio, USA - JUL 13, 2008
I received some of this as a Christmas present. and Just re-unearthed from the unused garage fridge...I fear spoiled beer.
The pour is a cloudy orange-ish color, with a small fast dissipating white head. The pour has a pretty good number of bubbles raising up from the glass. the Aroma is sweet mild hops with some fruity overtones. The flavor is bitter, and earthy. Lighter body. An interesting beer. I would like to try it on tap somewhere.

This one had a strange mouthfeel to me, hard to describe but I had trouble getting it past my tongue (?). Honey colored with an amber hue. Very syrupy malty flavor. Drew (2411) - Kent, Ohio, USA - SEP 22, 2002
This was a big ole dog that’ll keep you company all day long. An easy drinkin’ amber, full of malts - especially strong taste of Werther’s candy. very little aroma. blank (996) - Austin, Texas, USA - APR 5, 2003
i'm having a hard time describing this beer. Probably because i had it in between to really good other beers. Light, easy, ok... i guess

This doesn't taste like an Ale, and indeed the name of the beer is "Balto Heroic Golden Lager" and it seems very Vienna-ish - bordering on Bock territority. And it's OK; very sweet/butter/toffee, a lot of chemicalness in the ending. guzzler67 (1696) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - DEC 28, 2004
Clear gold with a tiny head and zero lacing. Aroma did not contribute to the overall enjoyment; malts, maybe. Smooth, sweet flavor that worked well in washing down some pizza, but not something I would break out to impress friends or family. Cute pooch on the label, though.

Bottle - Poured a golden amber n color with a very thin white head that faded very quickly to almost nothing. Aroma is sweet and malty with notes of caramel and hops; although nerither is very pronounced. Flavor is slightly hoppy with also some malty sweetness. Finish is lightly bitter with some lingering sourness. An OK beer, but certainly nt my favorite User37895 (3042) - - AUG 31, 2006
Ah, I just don’t like the thick and sticky sweet take on lagers, these things should be a lot crisper. The aroma was too much caramel, the flavor followed suit. Very light toasting underneat the sweet and malty caramel, but the sticky sweetness was rather disappointing, especially with this one being labelled a godlen heroic lager?

Bottle. Golden body with a small white head. Nose is malty and sweet with soft meon notes and caramel. Taste is malty and sweet as well with a bit of citrus and lightly spiced hops. Body is light-medium with mild carbonation. Finishes with more citrus notes, sweet malts and caramel.
