3.68/5 rDev +2.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
A: Arrived a deep amber/ruby color. Very clear. I like the color a lot. Not much as far as lacing or visible carbonation go. Very little head which did not appear to be an issue with the glass, but may have been due to the pour.
S: Not much is noticeable here, a vague sweetness is all.
T: Sweet malts dominate, but not in an overbearing way. Caramels and toffee type flavors, with very little apparent contribution from the hops. There is also a very mild spice flavor that actually adds to the beer. This is rare for me, as usually all I can taste is the spice.
M: Very little above average by way of mouthfeel. On the light side of medium bodied. Just a touch of texture.
O - Nice crowd pleaser for the winter months. Not a lot to get excited about here, but certainly nothing to complain about. May pick up a 12-pack for the wife and guests, and the occasional bottle for myself.
Serving type: on-tap

Transparent copper color with a thick head with medium retention.
Predominant aroma of caramels and white bread.
Sweet flavor of caramel malt, licorice, cinnamon and just a bit of soap, nutmeg and earthy and citrus hops (maybe just the orange peel). Wheat gave it some good roundness. Mildly dry aftertaste.
Medium body with low carbonation.
Decent beer for who likes malty beers with lots of caramels.

3.56/5 rDev -1.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75
Appearance: Dark amber color with an off-white head.
Smell: Typical lager maltyness with hints of sweet hops.
Taste: Sweet start with a malty bite and finishes with a sweet/malty/hoppy balance.
Mouthfeel: This is probably the best part of this beer as it is incredibly smooth and well carbonated.
Overall: A good "anytime" lager that isnt too special and isnt too heavy, but very drinkable.
Serving type: bottle
