Bottle from local grocery (in August) so this may have been old from last fall/winter? Still pours dark amber. Malt and some caramel. Nothing offensive but nothing memorable either. Light bodied beer with wet after taste.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a dark amber color with a small white head. The aroma is malt and grains with some hops. A decent lager.

3.74/5  rDev +9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 12oz bottle into a dimpled mug.

Appearance: rich amber-red hue with no haze and a thin layer of ivory foam. I think the color is just incredible.

Smell: lightly sweet with a nice caramel character. Hops are not really present, but overall it's a pleasant aroma.

Taste: really very light flavor of caramel and just a little bit of hops. It's refreshing, but too mild to really grab me.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body but with a huge carbonation yielding a very nice creaminess indeed. Woo!

Overall: this beer's weakness, its mildness, is also one of its strengths: this beer is immensely drinkable. I could easily put away a lot of these on a nice hot day.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a pretty, dark amber color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of toasted malts, little else. Taste is toasted malts, some caramel, mild and easy drinking. Feels medium/light bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Pours from the bottle dark brown with red tint and a faint khaki head that settles to a thin film on top. Caramel malt dominates with a roasted aspect that is reminiscent of a porter.

Thanks to Mike Martinez for this one.
