Picked up a growler on my way home from work today. Much anticipated tasting of the beer.
Pours a pristine polished copper color, nice head the leaves ample lacing as is vanishes.
Smells of a good mixture of malt and hops. A bit grainy in the nose, floral like a spring day.

Taste is very clean and smooth as a lager should be. Smooth and full on the palate, with a long lasting bitterness that leave me wanting more.

Carries the house flavor characteristic of the brewpubs beers...and I mean that in a good way.
Very good seasonal...maybe with encouragement, it will be on tap all year long

Light copper colored. Not much head on this one. Mild aroma, maybe a little bit of caramel and some local water character. No noticeable hops.

Taste is very clean. Some hop notes in the flavor and this finishing bitterness. Good caramel malt flavor. Also the "house" flavor is present, and I am loathe to use the word that comes to mind. Not unpleasant just noticeable.

This lager has some body and is eminently drinkable.

Pours an excellent dark amber color with great head and nice lacing. Very well-mixed scent, an nice malt/hop combination. Great taste! This is a wonderful hoppy lager, a nice smooth lager with excellent bitter tastes and aftertaste, an excellent blending with malts to keep it from going too far over the top. Goes down extremely smoothly for a hoppy beer.
