this is hands down the least impressive beer i have had from these guys, a real lame lager thats flat, sweet, and completely off from what i might expect from the listed style. it seems amateur, and if they could release this, it lets me think some of their other beers must not be so hot, this is full of holes, and while i have enjoyed pretty much all the other flat earth beers i have had, this one is a real regression. a little darker than i have seen in the style, with almost no head and a lot of shine, really pretty unappealing in the pint glass, save for the high degree of clarity. aroma and flavor are overly malty, and pretty sweet for a lager, doesnt taste like the yeast has finished working yet, like an impatient brew in some ways, this seems less than all the way done. very little hops to to it, a hint of a toasted grain thing, and an overall fairly disappointing brew from an operation who has proven themselves to be capable of a whole lot better. to follow the fine winter spiced porter with this one was a real drag...

Darker that expected, amber with a thin head, smell was sweet. Drank easily and tasted alright but a little sticky and sweet on the end. Wasn't quite as refreshing as I hoped but was not terrible.

grainy, malty nose with spice, minty hops and traces of light fruit.
Pours coppery amber to brown under a rocky 2” white foam cap.
Palate: rich malt, a touch of sweetness, light fruit leading to a spicy, minty herbal hop accent on the finish. A perfect balance between the malt, yeast driven esters and the herbal hop flavors and bitterness.
Medium body and carbonation.

On-Tap at Bunny's Bar & Grill

Appearance - Dark copper/rust color with a clear and clean look.

Smell - I'm picking up yeasts, malts, and a slight cider scent oddly enough. It's simple but nice

Taste - Yeasts, malts, cider and a slight hoppy taste. Finishes quite dry with only a slight hoppy bitter taste

Mouthfeel - Light bodied with just a slight carbonated kick. Very crisp!

Overall - It's a good tasting beer that finishes really well with pretty much any meal, especially a burger!

A- Pours a copper color, almost red, with a two finger off-white head. Good retention and some lacing.
S- The aroma is bready, a touch toasty. There is a fair amount of herbal hop aromas as well.
T- There is a fair amount of herbal flavor up front, but the maltyness balances it out with a lightly toasted bread flavor and a touch of toffee.
M- Body is quite light. Carbonation is smooth, maybe a bit undercarbed. The flavors are long in the aftertaste.
O- A good beer that has a fair amount of flavor, and is super easy drinking.
