Got it on tap at the Firkin & Fox in Colonie, NY.
A: Body is clear reddish-copper with a 1-finger, foamy ivory-colored head. Left good rings of lace up top, less so on the way down.
S: Not too strong in the nose -- some caramel malt and grainy malt.
T: Caramel malt, a touch of fruit, some grain and/or toasted bread and then a slightly drying, earthy bitterness on the finish, which provides some bitter balance to offset the sweeter malt.
M: Light in heft, appropriate carbonation levels.
D: Very good. Not a terribly complex beer, but an easy-drinking lager with some flavor and balance. . . .
Serving type: on-tap

A - poor was nice, caramel in color
S - Smell was lacking something, knew a watery beer was to come.
T - Taste as expected, lack luster , little to no body, flat tasting.
M - Mouthfeel was waxy-watery.
O - As a lover of ambers I was not impressed. Taste was not there, not enough body - this one just missed the mark.
Serving type: bottle
