Bottle label data: none noted

The body presents a hazy, orange body with a thick, rocky, long-lasting white head; rings of white foam cling to the glass. Fresh-from-the-oven warm bread aroma. The flavor somewhat mirrors the aroma with the addition of a mild astringency and somewhat metallic bitterness. Medium body yet still feel watery despite the carbonation; generally dry finish.

An okay amber lager that lacks any distinctive qualities. The flavor is a let down, lacking some of the malt depth suggested by the aroma. Worth exploring but I'm moving on...

A: A strong glass filled effervesce shows a tawny orange coloring with a slight ghost hazing. A weak and washy head, butterscotch in color, is dismal and disappointing visually, short lived and provided no window dressing.

S: Autumn leaves for aroma, light orange, some moist grains really light in strength, really light in complexity.

T: Flavor was sweet at the start, buttery-orange, lightly toasted dry cereal grains, with some nobel flowery hops that was warming and fresh. A light yeatiness factor with a bit of a sour twang finish with some stale malt and wildflower hints.

M: starts crisp and has a pretty good malt depth per style, slippery texture with a bit of alkaline nature to it.Doesnt particularly hold well on the tongue or finish well.

O: Overall the flavor (malt and hop character) doesn't show me enough to make this a revist or worthy of a recommendation. Some sour flowery off taste and stale malt leaves much to be desired and not enought to keep you drinking after one.
