Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: pours a thick off white head that falls moderately with some very light lacing. Head retention is good throughout the drink. Color is clear reddish-amber with moderate streaming carbonation.
Aroma: malt is quite dominate with whole wheat bread and caramel. There is an earthy hop presence in the background.
Mouthfeel: fairly light and frothy with a quick somewhat dry finish.
Flavor: caramel and a strong bread presence with a mild earthy hops in the finish.
Overall: a decent and drinkable brew.

Delicious and underappreciated. Biscuity breadiness and easy to drink. Slightly one dimensional but I'm never disappointed with this.

Dad was a beer drinker. He was easy to buy for: beer. We'd always get him something interesting for his birthday like Tsing Tao or something with a strange name. This was one of his favorite beers. When he discovered this, he raved about it. At his 60th birthday party, he had a keg of this. That was a good party.

As the name suggests, this has a reddish tint in its color. It's a great lager, and it has a wide appeal. Sophisticated beer snobs won't look down their noses at it, and less experienced beer drinkers will love it. It's perfect for a birthday party. Times have changed, and our favorite beers of yesteryear just can't compete with today's full flavored beers, but this is still great stuff.

An amber colored lager that has a pretty good looking color to it and a nice aroma. Comes off clean and crisp after a sip which is to be exoected for a light bodied beer.
