Bottle week 2 of October. Poured into lager stein.

A - Big caramel colored head. Small bubbles lie atop a red hued bright brown beer. Leaves a nice bit of lacing.

S - Quite sweet on the nose. Some toasty malt but a bit of sweetness. Clean with a tiny bit of herbal hops.

T - Pretty sweet and a little toasty. Munich malt showcases a little darker malt flavor than in the aroma, a smidgin of nuttiness. A touch short with hopping as this beer leans far onto my malty palate.

M - Medium bodied, medium carbonation. A bit too sweet of a finish.

O - Hops were relatively absent. Nice complexity to its malt but a little to off balance. Still clean and a nice lager.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Serving: From a keg into plastic cup
Served: 26 July 2014

Appearance: Can't comment TOO much about this one since I unfortunately had to use an opaque plastic cup for this one. However, it poured with a great creamy beige head that actually left lacing down the side of the plastic cup, so that gets huge props.

Smell: Smelled light and 'beery', more or less, with a soft hint of some nutty and toffee malts and just the slightest herbal hoppy funk.

Taste: Really a great amber lager. Soft malt flavors add some nice character, as the malts bring hints of light nuttiness and soft caramel. Just enough hop presence to be noticeable, but barely so. The hops are mostly floral and slightly herbal. Good lager-like breadiness on the back end. Finishes sweet.

Mouthfeel: Great carbonation makes this one superbly drinkable.

Overall: I put down three full solo cups of this one- it's a marvelously drinkable beer that paired excellent with the pulled pork barbecue that was being served at the party. Would highly recommend for craft lager lovers or new converts to craft beer, as it is an approachable style for all beer drinkers and one that really hits the style on the head. Would recommend.

3.5/5  rDev -7.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

LOOK: Pours a light brown or dirty copper color with a frothy head that has good retention. Some lace is left behind on the glass and the brew exhibits decent clarity.

SMELL: Bready, hoppy, soft caramel, malty. As it warms the malts come out more with more toffee, brown sugar and caramel.

TASTE: Firm malt notes with plenty of caramel and toffee, Bitterness is mild and the hop character is leafy, herbal and maybe a slight lemony citrus. Kind of has a noble thing going on. Agreeable amber lager that reminds me alot of an English pale ale for some reason, but this is far more bready.

FEEL: Medium bodied with a fuzzy mouthfeel from a high level of carbonation. Finishes with a bit of malt and bitterness rinsing the palate.

OVERALL: A good American Red Lager here from Lakefront that would not be out of place in my fridge. Malty, bready lager beer that drinks easy and has pretty solid flavors.
