COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

12oz can pours a slightly hazy Amber with a large khaki head. Aroma of caraml malt and bready dough yeast. Taste of dry doughy bread yeast, lightly sweet caramel malt, and light hop. Not bad for an Amber Lager.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 2, 2005
Clear, amber/copper color, decent ring of beige foam above, assuredly slimming down to a miniscule size. Aroma: Very malty, coppery, plentiful yeast in the nose, with a definite coppery feel, and a hint of fruit. Taste: very mild, with little hop presence, and toffee-ish malt tones. Mouthfeel is negligible, and the body is a little less than medium. Nothing wrong with that, though, its par for course for an amber lager. Flavor isnt as full as Id like, however, and points are lost there. but it is tasty, if a bit too tinny, and extra-drinkable to be sure. For the style, its above average, but no better.

Pours deeper copper with an off white head. Aroma is caramel, toast and light floral. Taste is mild sweetness with some light bitterness, well balanced. Light bodied with a smooth and inoffensive finish.

Panzuriel (2098) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Hazy dark copper beer with a fine head of small white bubbles. Nose is watery and metallic. The taste is sharp and malty but watery with a metallic hint. Body is fluid. Generally a watery beer.

Poured from can. Copper color with off white head. Toasted malt aroma with light citrus and herbal notes. Flavor starts out toasted and caramel malt followed with some vanilla. Finishes very clean light floral hop. Kind of a creamy vanilla aftertaste. Very smooth and clean beer.

In my whole life I have never opened anything other than a single-celled water smoking unit and smelled the aroma of bong water so stronly as my first whiff of this beer. Hazy amber, light tan smallish head. That aroma is too much. I am not sure how they managed this, especially in Utah, but manage it they did. Lightly sweet aroma that develops into... nothing. Watery body, bong water aftertaste. Ugghhh. Even if you like to smoke the ganja I bet you will not like tis one.

RSRIZZO (1977) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - JAN 25, 2012
12oz bottle poured into a Lager Glass at 42. Color is a deep golden that has a bit of amber. Carbonation is good producing a thin white head. Aroma is a slightly sour malt scent. It has a light body with a crisp light mouth feel. Flavor is light caramel and a touch of hops then a very light bitterness. After taste is clean leaving you with a smooth feel. Overall this is an easy drinking brew.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - AUG 29, 2006
I paid a whopping $0.50 for this, and might have been robbed a quarter. Coppery amber with a thin head. It looks nice, but that is where it ends. Malt with a distinct metallic odor. Somewhat sweet, malty metal flavor, seems like some sort of spice was added, a bad one at that. Almost could not finish.

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - JAN 3, 2005
Light brown. Disturbing nose. Smells more like pot smoke than any pot smoke ever produced. While I know some people on Ratebeer that would likely automatically give this one a 10 in aroma because of that fact, Im not one of those people. Flavor starts a bit sweet, then the same musty pot flavor comes on. Nasty aftertaste. As most people seem to think this beer has no scent, perhaps I just got a "special" bottle. At any rate, it sucked.

SuperDave (1932) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - OCT 31, 2008
Tap at the Tram Club, Snowbird, UT. Clear amber pour with a foamy off-white head. Aroma and flavor are all malt, with just a touch of roasty nuts. Thin bodied. Highly drinkable, but not much going on.
