Presentation: Poured from draft tap into Rahr Stormcloud IPA 20oz imperial pint glass.

A: The beer pours a really nice red and amber color, but without any head and very minimal lacing. Color is great though.

S: Maybe some cascade hops in the taste, now that I'm reading it is also a lager I'm understanding the flavor profile a bit more. Nothing really stand out in the nose, but it smells like a good beer.

T: Taste is very odd. As with all Rahr beers the malt profile is bitter and I don't like that about them. It stays on your palette for a while. This is not one of their better offerings because the lager bite hurts the bitterness further. Maybe some cascade hops in the taste too though, not my favorite variety.

M: Really average in every way. Carbonation, weight, are all just average. Not bad or good in any way.

D: I couldn't have more than one of these unless it was the only beer left at the brewery.

The beer poured into the glass slightly hazy golden copper with and off-white head which lasted well to lace the glass.

The aroma was caramel with a light spice and earthiness.

The flavor was astringent with light caramel and a decent hop bittering. The tannins in the flavor were not good at all.

The finish was more astringent mouthfeel with a lasting grainy and husky flavor into the aftertaste. The body was medium light. This was a very poorly crafted brew that while supposedly a lager was not clean at all and was not very tasty. Skip it.

12 ounce bottle.
