- Had on tap at Saucy pizza place.

-Appearance- A dark brandy hue with delicate lacing. BURNT looking if you will?

-Smell- The smell surprised me. Rather figgy/sweet scent hit my nose.

-Taste- Delicious. I taste toasty crackers with a dab of jam. It gets better as it warms in the glass.

-Mouthfeel- Nice light fizziness tickles the tongue. Considerably refreshing.

-Overall- I loved it and I would certainly recommend to a good number of people due to its light, tasty, and approachable flavor.

A - Served a clear amber color with a bit of orange mixed in with a finger of frothy white head. The head fades at a normal pace leaving behind some good lace.

S - Aroma is a mix of rich sweet caramel malts with a bit of toasted malt and citrus hop.

T - Starts off with some sweet rich toasted caramel and bready malt with a bit of citrus hop and a hint of chocolate. Though the middle some more toasted flavors come through with some light bitterness, some more hop flavor, and a touch of lager yeast esters. The finish is a mix of citrus hops, lightly caramelized malts, and a touch of bread.

M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth with lightly syrupy feeling and a dry toasted finish.

D - Very drinkable. Nice amber lager with good balance.

Appearance: Arrives at the bar with a cognac color and a small cap that laces very nicely

Smell: The power of suggestion in the name is very strong as I pick up the toasted bread aspect but would add that there is a fruity character to it that spread like jam on toast

Taste: Toasty, up front, with a fig and blackberry jam flavor that arrives by mid-palate; earthy hops balance out the jam and toast flavors and linger into the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: I've seen this on tap a few times when I on the west coast but was put off by the idea of ordering an Amber Lager; this beer is definitely not your father's Amber Lager and is unique in its own right; well worth seeking out

Served on-tap into a tulip glass at NOPA in SF. I love that NOPA exclusively serves Moonlight on draft, but I digress.

A: A deep crimson/amber with little head or lacing. The color is intriguing nonetheless.

S: Spicy notes, bread & yeast with a slight with the citrus of hops.

T: A wonderful balance of malt and hops. Moonlight's forte is BALANCE and this offering showcases that strength.

Mouthfeel: Creamy, smooth with a slight bite. Too drinkable.

O: A solid beer, definitely happy to try this limited brew.
