The first offering from Westchester county's newest and my hometown brewery. A brilliantly clear darkish amber with a two finger head and copious lacing. A gentle light carbonation. Slow fade leaves a light covering. Lots of toasted biscuity malt in the aroma. A lightly alcoholic sweetness. Clean with a nice noble hop balance. Taste is malt forward with a clean yeast character. Hops are well done with just enough bitterness to balance the very malty character. Finish is clean and dry with toasted malt lingering and a mild, lightly oily hop bitterness. Feel is superb. Perfectly carbonated with a medium weight and crisp drinkability. One of the best lagers I've ever had. This just blows me away with its balance, flavors, and easy drinking character. One of the best session beers I've had with its excellent combination of weight, carbonation, and taste. Looking forward to what is to come while thoroughly enjoying what is here now.

On-tap at Bronx Ale House, Bronx, NY

A: The beer is crystal clear amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high off white head that died down rather quickly but left some lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of earthy yeast are present in the nose along with notes of toasted malts.
T: The taste has a slight bit of sweetness with flavors of toasted malts and malt extracts; hints of earthiness are present in the finish. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and seems like it would be appealing to novice craft beer drinkers.

The beer poured just as described. Amber in color. The taste was also as described, smooth and slightly malty. Toasted even.

Very refreshing on a hot summer day. I can definitely drink a few of these. Not many people attempt lagers and this one is way more than an attempt it is an accomplishment.

For a novice craft guy, this was a great beer. Two thumbs up.

Pours with almost no head. Light carbonation but it keeps the carbonation rather well throughout.
Sweet aroma.
Deep amber color. Very clear and filtered.
Clean tasting with a bit of hops, could drink a few of these.
Toasted flavor, somewhat like bluepoint. Bit of a dry finish.
Good first start.

09/25/13 On tap at Rattl n Hum, NYC. I'm surprised to find a lot of dried cherries. Don't get me wrong, I happen to like it but it's not like any other lager I've ever had.

Pretty darn heavy on the palate and filling to boot. It's Sept. & this fits right in.
