12 oz bottle in NJ.
Deep amber color with a tall, frothy white head that has good retention. This lager has more flavor than most, primarily due to the generous malt load. The malts also lend some additional sweetness.
Overall: recommended version of style.

Looked like a good beer in the glass. We had it on tap at the airport in New York before flying out. What a dissapointment. A flat taste to add to the dullness of the JFK airport experience.

Had this dozens of times from the bottle but this review is for the draft. Ordered this at Peter Luger's in Brooklyn only because the other choices were dismal ABInbev. The draft arrived in a glass mug with no bubbles or head. It appeared to have been sitting at the bar too long. Otherwise, it was the pedestrian dark copper liquid. Aroma was malty with hints of nutmeg. Tasted like it was sitting in a rusty can waiting to be served to the next victim. Mouthfeel was watery to non existent. Overall the draft example was disappointing compared to the bottle version. As for the beef steak, I've had better steaks for the price but nevertheless it was a good experience.

Nice appearance,feel and carbonation. Aroma was a mix of malt,grain,hops. Taste never really came togethor in a way that was overly pleasing. A good beer for a bbq or picnic but not substantial enough to stand on its own when there are so many other better representations of the style out there

Consumed from the bottle. Best before December 2017.
3.5/3.5/3.5/4/3
Fizzy and yellow with gentle head.
Smells lightly malty with citrusy hops. A metallic, lagery tinge is not entirely unpleasant.
Tastes initially sweet and grainy, with a pleasantly metallic-lemon bit at the end that keeps it from being too sweet.
A thoroughly average beer, but a decent lager. You'll probably never be unhappy with it, but will you be happy? Not I.
