12 oz. bottle poured into a shaker pint.

A--Medium brown caramel/copper body with a nice finger and a half fizzy white head. Lacing and retention was better than expected for a lager and held through the tasting, leaving sheets.

S--Very floral for the style. Definitely some fresh hops or something late added going on here. Strange--unexpected for the style, since usually you get clean, nearly mineral sniffs from amber lagers. But invitingly different. Definitely smelled like roses at points, with a slight honey brush of sweeter malt.

T--Solid. Very balanced, with the expected beefier than pilsner grain bill shooting through to give some breadcrust and light toffee flavors. Nothing overwhelming or lingering in the flavor profile. You get a burst of malt and it moves to a burst of hop bitterness, and best of all, the floral hoppiness makes its way into the flavor profile as well. Welcome addition. Not sure about their being any "toasted" flavors, though.

M&D--Both are decent. The mouthfeel was a bit rocky from the carbonation, which is a bit, um, enthusiastic. Nothing horribly offensive, though. I'd definitely throw a few of these back if I were in the mood on a warm day, outside, with a bbq.

One of the better examples of the style. I like it a smidge more than Samuel Adams BL or Brooklyn Lager, though I think Great Lakes' Eliot Ness tops it by a nose. Great gateway beer for beginning beer drinkers or those transitioning into craft--stock a cooler, have some folks over, and see what they think.

Pours a clear amber with a fairly thick creamy white head. There was quick dissipation and minimal lacing, left, though. It has a lighter aroma but with nice toasted notes and some hints of fruit. The flavors match the aroma and it was a good beer with brunch. There was also a nice weight to the body. Overall, this is a pretty good lager.

Serving type: on-tap
