2.75/5  rDev -22.3%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

A: Pours a clear golden amber with a thin white head that recedes quickly.

S: Very muted aromas of grass, caramel, and grain take some time to express themselves on the nose. I'm not really picking up any toasted aromas at all.

T: Faint notes of caramel, biscuit, minerals, grass, straw, and grain wash across the palate. The finish is clipped and dry, offering fleeting impressions of grain and grass.

M: On the lighter side of medium in body and dry. Carbonation is slightly more delicate than I was expecting.

O: I'm not really impressed with this lager. I find it to be lacking in terms of aroma and flavor. I doubt I would have it again.

Good Amber lager with typical toasted bread crust aroma and taste.. Heavy piney slightly harsh bitterness for a lager.. but not over bearing.. Good beer pick up

Smell is uninspiring. Taste is indeed toasty but lacking in other flavor departments. Mouthfeel could also use more crispness. Easy enough to drink but not so much fun. Slightly sweet with a bit of an alcoholic twang. Not recommended.

Meh. Too much of an emphasis on the "toasted" for my liking. Not bad, but I wouldn't order it again unless it's either this or the typical domestic AAL.

Very similar to Yuengling with a nice toasty element to it. Not better than Yuengling in my opinion though.

Would drink again.

Not my favorite style and just didn't hit my palate right.

Nice, light lager with some flavor. Went down quickly, no objectionable flavors.

I ordered this to accompany my oysters and Manhattan Clam Chowder at Grand Central Station. It arrived wit an inch of foamy white head. The colour, carbonation, and taste all went together very nicely. I would not say there was anything particularly distinctive about this beer, but it was a very pleasant choice to accompany my lunch.

Fairly citrusy aroma, a touch grainy. Toasted malt is subtle.

Flavor reveals more toasted malt at the backbone, but it pales in comparison to the sharp lemon and grapefruit notes. Becomes a touch resiny at the finish. Has a slightly offputting grain character, reminiscent of a cheap lager.

Similar to Busch Signature Copper Lager. The flavor is a tad bolder in this one, though. Both are solid beers. Cheers!

Color is good, taste is very soft but still there, I don't feel smell of beer at all.

This beer produces a beautiful head that gradually becomes white lacing, which lasts. It's an amber color and tastes just right to me, that is the balance between malt and hops is perfectly achieved. Carbonation is spot on and the aroma is a rich beer smell. I'm really happy that my Publix carries it.

Pours an amber color with decent head. Smells of toasted malts and earthiness. Fruity sweet taste, like blueberries, as well as spices. A hop finish that is dry and slightly astringent. Smooth drinking creamy feel. Not bad.

Sub Average Lager. Toasted, yet toasted grain notes are almost unnoticeable

12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

a: Bubbly one and a half finger head over a lovely copper colored body. Very clear.

s: the slightest hint of toasted grain and hops.

t: Medium body. Crisp and clean...faint toastyness followed by grain, malt then hops. Semi dry finish.

mf: Crisp with medium carbonation.

o: Nothing over the top and nothing spectacular. A nice little beer with a bit of character that is easy to drink.

I tried this beer from a mixed 6 and I must say that it was okay. The main thing I notice about this beer is a slight after taste. I would probably try it again as a draft beer to see if there is a major difference.

Pours a light shade of orange, excellent clarity. Mediocre head that doesn't stick around. Aroma is pretty weak, just a bit of toasted grain but by no means living up to its name. A bit buttery as well, kind of off putting.

Mouthfeel is slick and grainy. Not a lot of flavor in the taste. No easily distinguished "toasted" notes. Unpleasant bitter aftertaste. Seems a bit heavier than it should be though overall it is drinkable.

Nothing to see here folks. Heck I'd rather have a Yuengling.
