Just happened to get a growler of this Iron Hill offering the other day...

Appeared a nice copper color with a thin lasting head and very little carbonation noted in the beer. Produced light lacing as well. Aromas of bready malt, all the way. This followed through in the flavor which was an airy bready malt with slight roasted quality as well. A little sweet too. Mouthfeel was nice and full, but not overbearing. This was a perfect summer beer, consequently, I think I'll have some more!

Serving type: growler

3.53/5  rDev +2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

An under appreciated lager style in my opinion... looks the part with a clear copper tinted amber body, minimal head. Scent is pale with notes of caramel, dried malt, light toast, faint earthy hops. Taste follows suit, maybe a bit too clean lacking a little bit of malt depth and sweetness preferred in the style. Lighter bodied, could use a tick more carbonation. Fresh and decent, but lacking something that even some of the Mexican macros offer in the style.

Serving type: on-tap

On tap in Media.

Lovely appearance. Clear amber body with a small, slowly settling head and lace sticking in patches to the sides of the glass. The whole thing has a really attractive, shimmering quality that makes you want to drink it. I found this to be the best aspect of this beer.

Mild aroma, smells of toasted bread, caramel malt; faint honey; hints of floral hops. Nice enough. The flavor follows suit but is a bit blander than anticipated. Again there is a gentle maltiness; lightly toasted bread, caramel and honey lending sweetness; finish is thankfully fairly dry; floral, grassy hops, with restrained bitterness, emerging mostly in the finish and aftertaste.

Medium-light bodied, medium carbonation; the feel is smooth enough. Decent session choice, I suppose. This beer has a lot going for it in terms of feel, appearance, and even aroma, but ultimately winds up a little bland and muted for my tastes with just a smidge more sweetness than I'd like.

Enjoyed at the Wilimington, DE location brewpub.

A: thin head on a amber and brown clear body. decent lacing.

S: aroma is light with sweet caramel and toasted malts, even a slight burnt toast note. Minimal mostly earthy hop notes.

T: toasted caramel malts, fairly sweet with brown sugar, light toffee and bready notes.

M: medium body and moderate carbonation.

Overall: The malts in this one are very flavorful. I would like a little more out of the hops however.

Serving type: on-tap
