A fair type; a little watery.

Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a dark bronze color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is very mild, a bit of malts. Taste has some toasted malts, not much else. If a light version of this style were made, I imagine it would taste something like this. Feels watery in the mouth and overall, nothing offensive here, but just a bland and boring beer.

my first beer from these guys. first impression is that this may be a little gimmicky, labeling and all look pretty goofy. the beer is crystal clear and looks exactly the right color, orange rusty with a white head on it. the smell is a little bland, but its the right munich type malts and plenty of lager yeast doughy aromas. the flavor is real clean in the back for how much malt sweetness it first presents. notes of maple syrup and yellow squash are there, and a slight tinny metallic property where hops should be as it finishes. not the most artfully made example of the style out there on the market, but a reasonable beer overall. a good gateway craft type, its familiar enough to BMC guys but definitely a step up. still not particularly impressed, but its cool to see something from these guys for sale in colorado now.

Dark caramel color, beige head. Somewhat sweet nose, but somewhat plastic-y and mineral-y. There's a fair amount of noble hop taste that's almost minty, with a astringent malt backbone. Medium body, but a bit creamier than I like my Oktoberfest lagers. It was kinda a mess. Glad I was able to share the whole 4 pack with coworkers and not be stuck with any.
