Poured from the tap into a pint glass at Doc's Commerce in Milwaukee. The appearance is a clear reddish tinted amber color with a small white head. The aroma is caramel malt and some floral hops. The taste is a good mix of oranges and malt.

12 oz bottle. Pours amber with tall, long-lasting, fluffy off-white head. Aroma is of grassy hops and caramel malt. Body is medium and crisp. Grassy hops and caramel malt fill the mouth, there is some sourness. Finish is long and semidry. OK brew.

Nice copper look, lots of head that lingers. Fairly light, hoppy flavour profile and even lighter smell. Slightly creamy feel that goes down well and easy. Hint of bitterness at the back end.

I liked this beer at first and thought it could be a go to. However after bought second sixer, not as good. Easy to drink but noticed a headache each morning after even a few. I think a touch of impurity?

12oz can with no date, just a code on the bottom

Great color (darkish amber hue) but lacking in head; just a white film that dissipates quickly into nothing. Smell is of grain, malted barley, champagne and high proof alcohol. Taste is very flavorful: grain, sweet malt, wood, sweet esters, with a bitter hint of hops in the finish.

In a perfect world more lagers would have the breadth of flavor this one has. Drinks like a beer twice it's ABV - in a good way
