4.18/5 rDev +16.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
A - Clear and a nice copper color with a persistent off-white head
S - No noticeable hop pretense...bready, cereal malt...very mild esters
T/M - Flavors match well with the aromas. A nice malt sweetness on the bready/cereal side. Hops aren't a predominant player outside the balance they provide. Carbonation is moderate and pleasant.
This is a very lovely beer, not just for the solid craftsmanship but also for being one of my gateway beers. While it may not be my favorite it is a solid goto beer.

3.54/5 rDev -1.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
Serving: On tap, shaker pint
Served: 11 April 2014
Appearance: Brownish red with a cream colored white head. Head seemed pretty intense, but the bartender poured it off the beer when he was pouring it. Left some lacing.
Smell: Soft assertion of chewy caramel.
Taste: Some caramel maltiness with a slightly bitter finish. No hop presence other than the hint of bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Light with lively carbonation. A very refreshing brew.
Overall: An unimposing beer than is sure to be a crowd pleaser. Tastes like a toned-back Maerzen, which is itself not an imposing style. I would have liked to see a fuller assertion of the malts, with slightly more caramel/molasses notes. Not a bad beer, but probably not one I would buy for personal consumption at home.
Serving type: on-tap
