03/28/12 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. When I saw the dark color I thought it would be more Hoppy or bitter then it was. Very enjoyable.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

Appearance - Deep amber color; translucent. Large 3 finger cream-colored head when poured; dies down quickly leaving an uneven layer of foam on the surface of the beer. Lots of medium bubbles.

Smell - Interesting very malty aroma. Slightly nutty.

Taste - Begins with a very nice malty flavor, followed by a smooth medium hoppy flavor with a mildly dry finish. Nice and refreshing. Full flavored for a lager.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Medium carbonation, somewhat effervescent. Nice.

Overall - Very nice lager, flavorful. I enjoyed it and would gladly have another. While it did not blow me away, it was a very solid basic craft beer.
