Poured from a bottle into a Sierra Nevada pint glass. Rich, semi-opaque brown beer with a small, but long lasting tan head. Lots of lacing left behind.

Aroma of caramel and other sweet malts. The sweet malt flavors are right up front. Not much bitter or hop flavor, but they're not necessary here. The mouth feel is substantial and not watery at all. This is a really good lager. I could drink several of these tasty beers with no problem.

Reviewed on 2/13/2010. Bottle. Pours a clear mahogany with a thick light tan head. Aroma of sweet caramel malt and residual sugars. Flavor is sweet malt and cardboard with a weak palate and some sweet grains. Not very tasty at all. This is just bad...

Poured a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass.

A. Chestnut brown body with about one finger of off-white bubbly head that drops after a few moments. Light amount of carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass.

S. Roasted malts and lager yeast aromas dominate this one.

T. Sweet roasted malts and earthy bready texture.

M. Light and creamy with a sweet aftertaste.

D. I wouldn't mind picking this up every once in a while.

3.53/5  rDev +3.5%

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass

A-Clear copper with a thin whisp of an eggshell head

S-Bready malts predominate

T-Sweet malts, bread, caramel, toffee with very little hop presence. This is pretty refreshing, but not particularly wintery.

M-Decent mouthfeel, if slighly overcarbonated.

D-Pretty drinkable, if slightly unremarkable brew.
