The beer pours a dark amber in color. There is a half-inch of white to off-white head, not particularly long-lasting. The aroma is malty, caramel, sweet, but also with a grassy bitterness. The taste follows the aromas, toasted malt, caramel, hint of dark fruits, sweet, but with a lightly bitter, grassy finish. The beer drinks smooth, but with some crispness of carbonation. This is a nice full-flavored amber lager.
From 2011: This beer pours a glowing and crystal clear orange-copper in color with a small and rapidly dissipating head. The aroma is malty and slightly roasted. The taste is nutty, malty, roasted and toasted. This is a very flavorful lager with a nice clean and refreshing finish.
