To me this beer is pretty standard. But I gave it high remarks because I'm one of those people that believes aluminum cans adds it's flavors to beers. But with this one it isn't that detectable. Maybe that says something about lagers that are normally canned.
Nice brown color that has an unusually white head. A little cloudy too. Notes of brown sugar, yeast and roasted malts fills the airways to the lungs. While the tastebuds dance with joy as a sweet sugar wakes them up, followed by a crisp sourness and leaving them used and bitter. Awaiting the call the next day. Good life in this beer as the carbonation from the light/medium bodied beer passes through the mouth. Very enjoyable beer and one that is good for today, a wet-rainy day.

Appearance: Excellent white lacing and decent white foam. Carbonation is extra active and bubble. Bright beautiful ruby Red. My only issue is that it is red and not brown...
Smell: Roasted toffee and nuts. Very fresh as well and slightly mineral-like.
Taste/Mouthfeel: Bitter lemon rind with a sweet caramel finish. A bit too bitter and first, but it mellows out nicely in the finish with a honey-like mouthfeel. Overall, the mouthfeel is a tad thin, but much better at the end.
Overall Drinkability: A beer that just gets better.

This is only available in cans. For this review I poured it into a pint glass, but I often drink from the can and it is just as good.
A - A nice copper/brown color with a little bit of head that eventually disappears.
S - The description on the can itself says that it has "hints of caramel and chocolate" and you can certainly detect hints of them in the aroma.
T - The taste is amazing, there is no bitterness at all, it is very smooth. You can also taste the chocolate and caramel that are noted as ingredients, along with the obvious nut flavor that a brown should have, making this not only a very easy drink, but a very delicious one too.
Overall, this is the best beer I've had. The taste is the best part, as it should be. I love that there is no bitterness and that it has hints of sweets to give it such a good flavor.

12 oz. can given to me as a sample from a distributor. Aggressively poured into a shaker pint... really more of a very dark amber than brown, with a thin off-white head and little retention. Decent amounts of thin lacing.
Aroma is very light. Caramel/maple, roasted grains. A little bit of a crackery type flavor as well. Even these are pretty thin.
Slightly sweet, mildly nutty flavor. Profile is very thin. Hint of spicy hoppiness.
Light-medium body, well carbonated. Very slick and oily mouthfeel that's just a tad chewy.
Meh. This isn't a bad beer, it's just not a good one. Very thin in flavor and mouthfeel. Easy to drink, but then again so is water. I'm glad this was a free sample, because I wouldn't pay for it.
