COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

I say this beer lands on the ale side. Malty aromas. Somewhat sweet to dry in the taste. Very little presense of hops. Not too bitter or dry in the aftertaste. Not a bad 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.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber/orange with a small white head. Aroma of toasted malts. Very toasted! Flavor is also quite toasted--lots of bread and cracker malts. Slight hints of sweet malt as well. Light bodied, perhaps a little too light/weak. Decent but nothing I’d seek out again.

guzzler67 (1696) - Hanover, Maryland, USA - MAR 1, 2012
Clear, deep amber appearance with a small beige head and decent lacing. Muted, slightly vegetal, aroma saved by caramel in the background. Grainy flavors up front; turned sweet (as in honey and caramel) before getting to the aftertaste, where the sweetness lingered. Light-to-medium bodied mouthfeel, modestly hopped, with a short lived finish.

Bottle... Poured reddish-brown with a nice forming head. Nutty, toasted malty aroma. Quite malty. Easy drinking. Nutty, toasted grains, a mild hop spice for balance, and sweetness with cereal-grain, bready finish.

jeffs515 (124) - Ogden, Utah, USA - JUN 16, 2013
Clear redish brown thick head that diminishes quick. Mild carbonation. Smells malty Carmely and sweet little earthiness. Very light and easy to drink. Little sticky on the tounge. Not a bad beer on the back porch in the heat.

Maxbier (1000) - Maryland, USA - FEB 8, 2015
12oz can. Amber copper color with creamy tan head. Biscuit malt lemon citrus aroma. Flavor is a hint of citrus but mostly that earthy flavor you get from noble hops. Biscuity malt an a slightly bitter dry finish. Would have guessed it Bavarian if I didn't already know it was from Utah.

PorterPounder (8286) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JAN 6, 2016
Fort Myers, Fl. - Total Wine & More - 12 oz can. Slightly hazy, but mainly sparkling light copper pour. Clingy snow white head that clings to the edge of the glass. Aroma has an odd meaty essence to it, not unpleasant, some nutty accents. Flavor has some brief Christmas spices, some date-like fruitiness, some ripening vegetables. Crisp mouthfeel.
