A- This beer has an orange body with a nice look. There is very little head but strong carbonation and lots of bubbles when poured.
S- This beer has a cheesy and slightly bad feet smell.
T- Tastes like a light caramel malt, slightly acidic and dry taste. Hops are strong but not overpowering, bitter flavor.
M- This beer has a medium mouthfeel with an acidic carbonated finish.
D- Too much carbonation drowns out the flavor over the long haul.

(Served in an American pint glass)
A- This beer pours a deep orange body with a clear but not crystal clear look. There is a think soapy head that is gone after the first sip but is supported by a strong carbonation of big bubbles.
S- This beer has a soft toasted malt nose that is more dry than sweet and leads to a soft hop bitterness that has hints of noble hop qualities.
T- This caramel malt notes have some toasted hints to them with a hint of biscuit and pale malt in the background. There is a light carbonic acid taste and sulfur note in the finish which is soon covered up by softly citrus green hops that linger as a dry bitterness just briefly.
M- This beer has a medium-light mouthfeel with a fizzy finish and no alcohol heat at all. The fizz enhances the hops bitterness while it is pretty cold but soon overpowers it a bit.
D- This beer has nice smooth malt qualities but good depth of flavor making it a solid session beer, however the fizz starts to wash out the flavor as the beer warms a bit.

12oz bottle, interesting label.
Pours with a decent white head that lasts, light caramel color looks better than most American Red lagers, I believe this should be categorized as an American lager, not red or amber.
Nose is hoppy, but a bit off smell, like spoiled hops.
Taste as expected, nice malt, a bit grainy and bready, with a decent finish.
Decent mouth feel and drinkable, just nothing special. OK lager, better than the Macros at least.

Ah, glad to have this beer in my hands it's pretty rare in that it's distribution is only in the city of chicago, so it isn't widely avaliable.
Smell: Yeasty, hoppy, beery, not too strong, beery. Hint of grapefruit.
Looks: Darker than your average lager, cloudier and darker, although not hefe cloudy, just cloudy in typical american lager terms. Appealing.
Taste: Good, very tasty, Deeper than macro, but not so deep as to offend, casual, nothing radical, but it has an atypical and slight grapefruity flavor; rare. Intresting, solid beer.
Mouthfeel: could be smoother?
Drinkability: Easy like sunday morning, but probably wouldn't want to drink it in too great amounts.
Overall: Get it if you want a solid lager, get it if your in the chicago area and happen to stop in a store that carries this beer. Distinct and well designed bottle label worth purchasing if you happen to collect beer bottles. PEACE!

One might expect from the label that this "lager" would be a light-bodied experience. On the contrary. The beer pours with an amber color and minimal head. The taste of citrus hops lingers with a slight maltiness. I bought this beer to help support the "local" beer scene in my city. This beer is brewed in WI for Half Acre Brewing Co. I hope that Half Acre puts out other beers to tempt the palate that are more to style.
