Darker and deeper than your average lager and active carbonation, though not much head produced on draft. Smell is present (unlike many lagers), but a reserved happiness is what's there. The flavor is the rich fullness of a lager with a healthy dose of hops on the back end. Even as someone traditionally hop-averse, this is a beer I'd have a few of.

Although the price and the appearance of the pour were a bit underwhelming for the beer, it more than delivered on both taste and smell. The name is spot on because on the nose and after the first taste you are bombarded by the taste of toasted wheat and malt that I found stupendous. Wonderful toasted wheat in the beginning and then a caramel flavor to finish it. For what it is, I think that the price is a steal at about three dollars a bomber here in CT.

Sampled on 12/27/13 with Arithmeticus
Appearance: caramel/apple juice color, creamy head, nice lacing, nice looking carbonation
Smell: lotsa caramel, little apple, slight spice
Taste: slightly sour, bready, not lots of hops, cider undertones- overall not very complex
Mouthfeel: pretty decent carbonation but thin
Overall: Meh. I'm not the biggest lager guy, so would I have it again? Possibly. I might have reviewed this a bit more favorably had I tried it earlier in a session.

$4 bottle from Three Blind Mice in Mt. Clemens, Michigan. Drank straight from the bottle, so I'll skip the appearance.

Toasted lager this is... on the nose and in the taste buds, there's a really nice toast and caramel flavor that leaves a slightly sweet aftertaste. The carbonation is fairly high, which makes this really drinkable with its low bitterness. I tend to find lagers a bit boring for the most part, but something as simple as making the beer taste a bit toast-like worked very well. I'd have another one. It's a good beer to drink after you've had a few, but are still looking for something with a little bit of flavor.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: pretty clear amber/ red. Finger of white head that settles to reasonable lacing.

Smell: faint toasted smell. Bit of malt. Smooth yeastiness.

Taste: true to its name, nice toasted flavor. With bread and some sweetness and some apples in the background.

Mouthfeel. Medium body. Pretty strong carbonation. Slightly creamy.

Overall. Was pleasantly surprised. Wouldn't buy it. But would order it at a bar against
Most major beers I can think of
