3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours gold with a small quickly fading head.
Nose shows honey, light spicy hops, soft vegetal notes and bready malt. Very sweet-smelling.
Flavours follow along the same lines. Quite sweet with lots of bready malt. Some of the hops show up too. Finishes with a very weak bitterness.

Good local lager, a much better alternative to the local incumbent Almaza. However not the best from this brewery: I found the Lebanese Brew much better.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very unusual aroma contains marzipan, dirty socks and sand. In the mouth there’s a very soft malt flavour with pleasant, mild hops. Not bad for a lager, the main complaint being the somewhat watery palate.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Decent Lager all things considered. According to the website, made with German Malt and Hops. Pours out a deep gold with two to three fingers of white head. Straightforward, crisp lager aromas. Clean on the mouth and very well balanced. Certainly way ahead of most of the other lagers out there.

330ml bottle from Archive Beer Boutique. Very clear in the glass, amber colour with a skinny white head. Straw and grain in the aroma. Clean crisp and refreshing in the glass.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330 ml bottle bought at Gorgeous Wine & Cigar in Yuen Long; Light golden yellow colour; Very thin head and white foam which fades in 15 seconds; Minimal lacing and notable carbonation; Pungent smell of malt, grain, corn and light grass; Very low sweet taste of malt, grains, bread, notes of citrus and very slight grass. Mid to light body, thin but crisp palate; Hoppiness is most evident and assertive than most macros but still on a pretty low level. Don’t think it’s Cascade as there’s no pine and citrus taste is whimpy at best. Very mild bitterness and not much of a finish Pretty dry after taste, very easy to mouth.
Comments: an unexpected geography tick. This one is a pretty well make lager: no obvious faults, decently attenuated, low adjuncts and crisp to mouth. If it has a more assertive hops character I will like it even more. Worth having it again.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Corn and, what is becoming clear to me is the house characteristic of this brewery, sawdust aroma. Crystal clear amber, headless. Metallic, corn and malt flavor. Like their wit, not true to style.

4oz pour from bottle. Poured a really pale golden color, with a tiny white head. Aroma was some light, pale malts. Flavor was, well, pretty much like every other pale lager - no cascade note to speak of here for me, but I suppose it was clean and drinkable.

Associated Supermarket, Bushwick sixer ($15): Pours a golden color with a white head. Aroma is bread, grain, and a bit of hops. Taste is bready, slightly hoppy. Tastes like a Dortmunder. Better than your average lager and definitely better than the terrible 961 Red Ale.
