Dark red in color, german style lager with a kick of hops and lots of sweetness, beer tastes great, but is a little lacking in complexity, perhaps a little more could have been thrown in but this is an adequete offering. Still a decent Red, the taste hides the alcohol well and is fairly smooth, went well with my dinner.

Dark, coppery color, thin ring of head. Scent very light with only a touch of sweetness and grain. Flavor expands a bit with more caramel malt sweetness and grassy hops. Light medium bodied, bubbly and crisp. A straight forward, lighter style lager with mild taste.

This beer is red in color and has a grassy/hay hoppiness. It is medium bodied with a caramel maltniess and a slight taste of apple. It finishes bitter to help round out the malty body. This not a bad beer, I am not sure it should have the apple notes that it has, though.

Had this at their Urban Table location in Morristown, NJ with pork ribs. The style pairs well, but this beer was just too bland/plain to stand out. There was no complementary qualities.

This is beer isn't bad. It just isn't special. They make better beer, which makes it disappointing that this one goes to all of their restaurants.
