1 pint, .9 fl oz of lager poured into shaker pint glass.

A-Pours a hazy walnut brown. 1 finger off-white head. Appealing color.

S- Raisins, cherry, plum, dark currant, fig. The smell is intoxicating, very nice.

T-Raisin again, bisquit malt, bready, sweet but not cloying, moderate to heavy bitterness but not puckering.

M- Full bodied, moderate carbonation. Everything you would want is here.

O- A very tasty brew, 10/10 would buy again. Would like more flavor on the hop side, the malts shine here.

500ml bottle served in pilsner glass. Pours an amber hue with a translucent clarity and a creamy, two-inch, tan-colored head. Head eventually settles into a half-inch, rocky cap, leaving delicate strands of textured lacing as the brew recedes. Nose expresses cereal notes - sweet and biscuity, as well as a suggestion of citrus. Taste consistent with nose with the addition of a slight caramel character and a light bitterness towards the back. Mouthfeel is light-medium in body with a pleasant, even carbonation and a touch of oiliness and citrus astringency. Overall, not my favorite from this brewer, but a decent offering for the style, nonetheless.

Bottled November 2012.

Pours a nice bronze color with a finger thick foamy head that leaves chunks of lacing on the glass. Smell is melon and spring flowers. Taste is light citrus with a mild bitterness on the finish. Feel is medium with a light, fizzy carbonation. Very smooth. A little hoppier than a lot of lagers I've had, but still with a nice maltiness.

Quite good overall.
