A meaty lager. More bitter than expected, with a bready taste. Rough mouthfeel.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Unmistakable cluster tang in the nose, also very yeast, almost banana-like, some rough cereal scents. Flavor is a dead ringer for just about any macro lager. IT has quite a bit more malt coming through and more bitterness, but the flavor itself is quite similar. I don’t know if I can say this is better aside from that it isn’t produced by bmc. I is definitely more cloying. Can’t rate it too high simply because it isn’t an amazing lager and it is aimed at replicating macro brews which I don’t think is the way to go. If I want a clean lager I’m gonna go pils or helles every time.

Rich golden color with thin white head. Very crisp and refreshing, nicely balanced. An excellent lager.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
355mL from Total Wine Rancho. Pours a clear, sparkling orange. Larger cream foam. Good retention with soapy lacing. Fresh biscuit and honey roll nose. Taste is quite soapy hoppy, sticky orange, a bit too soapy with lemon. Not a lot of quenching biscuity malt or fresh, zesty hop balance. Disappointing.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
From a 12 oz. bottle, pours a beautiful light golden color with a fluffy white head. Aroma of sweet malt and light hops with a nice lager yeast character. Light mouthfeel with an appropriate amount of carbonation. Flavor of soft malt and delicate hops lead to a subtle sulphur lager finish. Great summer beer. It's too bad it's only available in Cali.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear bright golden with a medium white head of fairly large bubbles. Aroma is grass and malt. Taste is sweet pale malt, bread, mown grass and a little hop bitterness. Refreshing and good, but nothing out of the ordinary for craft lagers.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear Golden pour with big white head and a bit of lingering lacing.
Mild dry nose well balanced light malt and faintly sweet with a slightly sticky bitter finish.
Its still a lager but well done for a heritage style.

A crisp refreshing lager. Nice aroma, smooth flavor but nothing exciting to write home about.

Draft at SFO. Pours a clear, deep golden color with a thin, white head. Nice, malty aroma with hints of grass. Smooth flavor with hints of yeast and malt. Some hops in the dry finish. Very good and refreshing!

I had heard this beer was Budweiser-ish but it’s also a revival of the original recipe of the old Boca Brewing Co. in my area. It definitely has a Bud aroma. Bright white head with a light gold color.Zesty and citrus and a light hop. Kinda grassy aftertaste. I like it! I wanna drink this while disc golfing.
