This is a great classic lager with a little twist on the American style.

Pours a dirty brown color.

Smell is amber lager typical with hints of earthy undertones.

Taste is very smooth, a little hoppy and some cinnamon notes. Really smooth taste.

Goes down easy, but certainly a heavy lager than say a Yuengling. A little tougher drinking than other lagers, but worth it. Great lager.

Serving type: on-tap

3.4/5  rDev -7.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours hazed ruby to garnet with a thin bubbly head. Some lacing sticks.

The smell is of caramel and smoke.

The taste is of caramel with some earthy notes. There is an odd smokiness to it. Not as clean as a lager should be, in my opinion. Finishes fairly dry with a hint of alcohol coming through.

It is medium-bodied with medium-to-high carbonation.

It's decent, but has something odd about it and has almost a burnt tinge to it.

Serving type: on-tap
