If you can find this lager, it's refreshing & an awesome session beer. Clean and flavorful -- love it when I can find it!

Pours a light clear amber with a white head. Smells of caramel and malt. Tastes of slightly sweet caramel, malts, and bread. Medium in body and carbonation. Overall a good red lager.

From XXXII. In Teku glass. After dinne.r 6 months after bbf date (my fault). Good body. Toasted caramel notes that as warms up becomes a.bit unpleasant. To repeat fresh

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.
