Poured out with 1/4 of head that disapeared fast. Nice reddish amber color. People will notice your not drinking a light beer.

Smelled of sweet roasted grains.Hops.

Lightly toasted bread. Tasted of hops on the back.

Medium body. Light carbonation.

Very drinkable. A sesson beer.

I think this is a winner from leinenkugel's

on draft at Buffalo Wild Wings.

rusty red in color with a thick frothy head.

not a lot of notes on the nose but lagers are never known for their complexity: roasted grains, malts & light hoppy aromas

very light citrus taste that has a sweet and malty aftertaste. nice balance.

rich and creamy for an amber. medium body with good amount of carbonation

this is true to class and I was pleasantly surprised. glad to have it on draft, not sure I would enjoy as much out of the bottle. found it quite drinkable and would have again.

Pours a light copper amber with no head but a tiny tiny bit of lacing. Fair bit of carbonation.

Nose of toasted biscuity malts and some herbacious hoppiness. Smells slightly sweet and buttery.

Taste is lightly toasty biscuity malts. The hops shine through in this beer more than most other macro produced amber lagers. This beer was a bit similar to Yuengling but perhaps a tad more hops in this one. I still like Yuengling a little better though.

Pours a light brown/amber almost yellowish color.

Hits the palette with a good crisp feel, followed immediately by a nice flavor.

I like this beer. There is almost a sweet flavor to it, like brown sugar or something I can't put my finger on. There is a bit of an aftertaste, but it's not bad.
