From a growler, pours a translucent light brown. Very active carbonation with lots of bubbles and a fizzy head.

The nose is dried fruit, dark malt, light earthy hops, and a little biscuit. The flavor is moderately sweet, caramel malt, butterscotch, earthy hops and yeast. The finish is crisp, refreshing, but a bit heavy and sticky.

Overall, not bad...average.

On-tap at Bronx Ale House, Bronx, NY

A: The beer is crystal clear amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high off white head that died down rather quickly but left some lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of earthy yeast are present in the nose along with notes of toasted malts.
T: The taste has a slight bit of sweetness with flavors of toasted malts and malt extracts; hints of earthiness are present in the finish. No bitterness is perceptible.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and seems like it would be appealing to novice craft beer drinkers.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a Will Becher glass. Bottled 26 May 2016. (OK, whoa, didn't realize this was a year old. Freaking NYC.)
4.25/3.25/3.25/3.75/3.25
A: Clear, effervescent chestnut beer with two fingers of voluminous head. Heavy lacing.
S: Smells crispy metallic with a hint of pumpernickel bread.
T/M: Hm. A touch sour on the foretaste before a more much pleasantly malty maintaste takes over. The mouthfeel is light, a touch bubbly, with an unsticky sweet finish.
F: A solid, above-average beer that is unassuming and pretty middle of the road. Not quite what I was looking for, but I'd enjoy revisiting a fresher bottle.

Pure amber color with a finger of off white foam and excellent lacing throughout. Rich bready aroma with a touch of dried fruit. The taste starts off with a bit of caramel sweetness and toasted malt, moving into a slight cherry and raisin sweetness. Clean and rich mouthfeel.

Bottle. Dark amber pour with diminishing head.

Smells of sweet bready malt, molasses, fruity esters.

Clean, crackery malt with a touch of sweetness, coupled with some fruity esters that add some complexity to an otherwise straightforward brew. Very minimal hop presence. The finish is much drier than the aroma would suggest.

Clean, crisp mouthfeel that carries the light/medium mouthfeel.

Nicely executed lager. An easy drinking beer that offers just enough to keep it interesting.

The first offering from Westchester county's newest and my hometown brewery. A brilliantly clear darkish amber with a two finger head and copious lacing. A gentle light carbonation. Slow fade leaves a light covering. Lots of toasted biscuity malt in the aroma. A lightly alcoholic sweetness. Clean with a nice noble hop balance. Taste is malt forward with a clean yeast character. Hops are well done with just enough bitterness to balance the very malty character. Finish is clean and dry with toasted malt lingering and a mild, lightly oily hop bitterness. Feel is superb. Perfectly carbonated with a medium weight and crisp drinkability. One of the best lagers I've ever had. This just blows me away with its balance, flavors, and easy drinking character. One of the best session beers I've had with its excellent combination of weight, carbonation, and taste. Looking forward to what is to come while thoroughly enjoying what is here now.
