Notes: A pale base with a dash of Munich and Crystal Malt make up this light, crisp beer. Its malty backbone is balanced by Santiam Hops which add a bright & earthy aroma.

Clear amber body with a thin white cap. Bready nose with hints of caramel and cracker, very thin. Taste is also thin and surprisingly sweet, even for an amber, with huge honey and caramel notes oozing from every cracker and toast malt flavor, no depth whatsoever though. Thin and by the end of the sip watery body, carbonation is slightly high for style, crushable

A: The beer is a little hazy yellowish amber in color. It poured with a finger high white head that died down, leaving a large pillow of bubbles on the surface, a narrow collar around the edge, and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of cracker malts are present in the nose along with notes of honey and hints of caramel and toasted malts.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of cracker malts with strong notes of honey. Bits of caramel are also perceptihle.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found the honey-like aromas and flavors in this lager to be rather interesting.

Huge rocky head, lots of lace and a lightly cloudy golden amber liquid. Not much activity.

Nice grainy nose. Healthy bread notes. Floral hops.

Sweet malt front. Some white bread and crust. A tight bitterness with a dry finish.

Crisp feel with smooth and gentle carbonation.

A good solid session lager. Highly quaffable.

Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) can into a conical pint glass; no production information, but bought it at Broken Bow Brewery yesterday. Yeast remnants evident.
A: Pours a cloudy, light copper color with exuberant head formation, a greater than one inch, foamy white head, excellent retention and lacing.
S: Very grassy, grainy aromas with spicy (?white pepper, ?paprika) notes.
T: Dry, but rich and complex. Very subtle apple and/or pear flavors, but clearly a caramel malt backbone and very nicely balanced bitterness.
M: Light to medium bodied with strong carbonation. Creamy.
O: Really a excellently well constructed amber lager. Would not hesitate to have it again or to serve it to friends.

Bought a loose single can with a dented top at Half Time Beverage in Poughkeepsie, NY. Very complex both on the nose and palate, hoppier than I expected and some spices up front that I can't identify but really like. Better as a sippin' beer than something to knock back fast. Officially on the lookout for more of their beers.
