My first toasted lager and I was quite pleased with the overall experience.

As crisp as a lager but with the bold taste of an ale, this toasted lager was a good and refreshing surprise on a hot FL day. Out of the bottle it pours a dark amber color with nice head and great lacing. The smell was something more than a lager, but something less than an ale - and I really liked it. It was well carbonated but the feel was still crisp and light. The taste was distinctly "lager-ish" but had an added flavor due to the roasted malts? Anyway, I liked it and am very glad I picked up a sixer earlier this week.

Wow, I loved this lager. It poured a dark blonde basically a light brown with a foamy tan head. The aroma is initially sour musty with a sweet fruity background followed by a oaky vanilla flavor. The taste is fantastic, caramel, brown sugar, vanilla, sugar cookies are all upfront with a pungent spicy lemon citrus background for balance. This is a playful lager that tantalizes the palate with sweet and funky notes.

Pours a clear golden honey with a finger of bright white head that subsides quickly, lots of carbonation streams, and a bit of spotty lacing. Aroma is clean and moderately malty with a slight grassy hop aroma. Taste is a sweet malt, lightly toasted as the name indicates, a little grainy, with a decent grassy hop finish. Simple but satisfying. Medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Not a big lager drinker, but this is a pretty solid one. Picked this up as a single, but I might by a 6 pack for around the house.

A- Light amber with a small white head. Looks like a slightly darker yeungling.

S- Toast and cinnamon though nothing very strong.

T- The toast and spice from the nose meld with nuts and a light earthy character that seems to come from both the hops and yeast, a good balance.

M- A bit thin but it has a little more body than most light lagers..

D- Highly enjoyable and refreshing, this is definitely a worthwhile beer if nothing mind blowing.
