Single bottle poured into a Shaker pint glass. No date anywhere on bottle or label.
Appearance: Poured a 1/4" white head that died down to a very thin skin across the top and a ring around the edge. Some small amounts of lacing noted. Beer color was a clear orange-copper color with more in the orange range of color.
Smell: Metallic and grainy with some corn noted after swirling. Sadly not great.
Taste: Nice toasted malt with a mild bitter hop finish. Just enough flavor to be notable, but not a lot going on otherwise.
Mouthfeel: Highly carbonated, almost scouring of the tongue. Thicker than water but otherwise not much to remark on here.
Drinkability: Despite my comments about the smell and this beer being just about average, this is actually a quite drinkable beer. It goes very well with food (LaRosa's pizza in this case) and quenches nicely and doesn't get in the way of the food. It's like this beer was designed to be had with food - complimenting what is there but not getting in the way or clashing. So I could easily have another...but with food. By itself I can think of other amber/red lagers I would prefer to have instead.

This is a GREAT lager. I am a lager fan and think that this is the true German brewing tradition of Ohio. This is my grocery beer and am very excited that I can hop down to my local Ingles in Knoxville and pick it up.
It does pour very nice and has a great head... but, I am a bottle person on this one. It is an easy drinking lager, not too heavy, not too light. Perfect with meals and anytime really.
