Unique in its dark amber color for a regular lager. Smell and color I think are of fully malted barley. Very mild and balanced. Smooth palate and slightly sweet finish. No hopps bitterness in finish. Segue to another one without having to fight after-taste of the last one. Superlative session beer. Wait...Noticed a little molasses smell and mouth feel. This may be part of the karma. This beer may be molasses finished. Subtle.

I was expecting a slightly bigger beer for a winter lager but this is a nice sessionable red lager. Notes of bread crusts, mild caramel and a touch of spicy hops on the finish. Light bodied but tasty for the ABV. This has less alcohol than your typical light beer and has tons more flavor. Would be a great beer when watching calorie intake but still wanting a real beer flavor.

Tough to rate as it is in the red lager category but really is much lighter and less assertive than most in that category..

Poured from a can into a pint glass. Pours orange red with a small off white head. Smells of sweet grain, slight spiciness. Tastes of darker roasted grain with slight caramel and very slight spiciness. Beer is light bodied and very easy drinking, good carbonation. Overall, an above average beer.

Can poured into a Mountain Rambler Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours golden copper amber with a frothy light tan head that settles to a light layer and leaves some spotty lacing.

S: Toasty malt, earthy spice, slightly herbal, dried fruit, and toffee sweetness.

T: Toasty, mix of Ritz and graham crackers, earthy, slightly herbal and spicy, kinda woody, some dried fruity notes, prune, raisin, and apricot, and finished with some toffee sweetness.

M: Light to medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Suffers from session beer syndrome. Yes, there's flavor there, but you wish there was more, as well as a bit more body to carry it. That being said, if you wanted something to crush while hitting the slopes, without ending up like the dude on the label, there are worse options.

Pours a good looking reddish in the glass but has no head to speak of. Feels very good on the tongue but once you drink it you realize it's not got substance and tastes nondescript. It's like a poor copy of Nordeast if I had to compare.

Pours reddish brown with nice creamy head. Has nice body and malt character. Because it is a Utah session restricted to 4% abv it fall short in taste/ flavor rating. Not a bad choice if you are in a Utah restaurant that only sells 4% beer. If you go to a State liquor store try some of Uinta Brewing Company’s non 4% beers. They are so much better that this beer.

Light copper. Thick head. Somewhat metallic taste. Mildly malty. Not bad, but nothing special about it either.

Poured into a mug: color is dark copper/light amber, head is light tan with fine bubbles, head presents about 1/2 inch thick then dissipates to a thin top with some lacing on the glass sides.

Smell is toasted malt, a good toast with a more nuanced caramel/toast aroma maybe toffee like - good especially at 4% and for a lager.

Taste is similar to the aroma with a bigger toasty/toffee like malt flavor, good flavor, then moderate earthy hops, herbal at times too.

Mouthfeel is moderate with a bit sharp carbonation, and maybe a touch off due to its age (best by date is 4/6/17).

Overall a good amber lager with a greater than normal toasted/toffee quality.

12 oz can at the Spring 2017 ASMF.
Clear copper colored body topped but a fine white head. Plenty of lacing.
Way more spicing in the complex nose than in the more bready flavor.
Medium-light body with lively carbonation.

I really don't have much to say about this beer; it's a solid lager, but nothing to really make it stand out, in my opinion. It's main appeal is the fact that it is so sessionable, a characteristic not featured in most winter seasonal brews.
