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.

Bottle. Good looking beer, pours red with thick lasting head. Aroma is caramelly. Hempy flavour in with the malt. Some pickle note in the finish. Also a bit of pepper.

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.

Transfer from BA review on 3-26-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a nice copper color with a big and billowy off white colored head. The head has huge carbonation bubbles entrapped within, which pop over time to leave a good level of lace on the sides of the glass as the head recedes. Smell – The smells is mainly of a roasted malt and a light amount of a toffee sweetness. Mixed with these are subtle aromas of a citrus hop and a bit of cinnamon and nutmeg spice. Taste – The taste begins with a lighter roasted malt flavor with a touch of caramel. The caramel gets stronger more toward the middle of the taste, only to fade again slightly more toward the end. While the caramel changes in intensity the roasted malt flavor remains relatively constant throughout and creates a solid base for the brew. Toward the end, a bit of a bitter grapefruit citrus hop and floral hop flavors come to the tongue combining with the more roasted flavors of the brew to produce a lingering, lightly sweetened, and somewhat bitter roasted flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel - The body of the brew is on the thinner to average side in terms of creaminess and thickness with a carbonation level that is rather average. The thinner to average body and average carbonation are a nice compromise between the drinkability and lighter abv of the brew but yet still can uphold the roasted flavors of the beer. Overall - An easy drinking and rather flavorful brew for only a 4 % abv brew. A nice session winter style lager.

Panzuriel (2302) - 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.

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, it’s par for course for an amber lager. Flavor isn’t as full as I’d 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, it’s above average, but no better.

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.

RSRIZZO (1997) - 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.

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.

Very red amber with lasting thin off-white head; aroma of skunk or burnt rubber; Flava is tangy and dry but not bitter or hoppy or sweet; feels very watery but with fizz; finishes dry and grainy with touch of hop
