The pour is brown with a moderate amount of carbonation. The taste is malty, brown bread crust, & caramel. Cheers! B

Left over from the Fall of 2018. Hidden in the back of my Lani Reefer this date. 16 oz, tall, poured into a chilled glass. Hazy clouded and copper colored with minimal lacy head. Smell is caramel and fruit. Mouth feel is delicious and full! I'll be looking for this brew this fall. As I'm in Central Florida it is usually found in my local Publix store.

I really liked this one from Big Storm, and being local to FL is a plus to me...

This was a really nice, really solid lager. I focus so much on bocks, doppelbocks, porters, stouts, and other styles that I really turn my nose, most of the time to lagers. But every so often, I come across one that peaks my interest so I give it a shot. This is one of those lagers - and I'm so glad I did. Nice caramel coloration, decent malty smell, and of course it was very tasteful. Maybe not the best lager I've had, but darn good.

16 oz can from Florida.
Pours with a clear copper body topped by a good beige head.
Pour aroma with obvious off-notes. The flavor is marginally better.
Gold medal and high ratings? .... perhaps this is a bad can.

Pours a very dark amber color with a small white head on top. Has a roasted malt smell to it. Has a great grainy taste earthy tones, perfect for the changing of the seasons.
