2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A real lager - a fine beer for this category. Nice malt, well made, clean and tasty hop.
Still very limited by style, but a damn nice premium lager.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear brilliant golden yellow color with a sustained of-white head. The smell is caramel, bread a bit floral. The taste is caramel, light fruit, bread with some nice fruity dryness on the end. Light+ in body with some slickness and tight crisp carbonation. A real nice beer that has depth beyond the simple lager name.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden amber with a thin head cover and sprays of lace, Taste is full malt mixed with distinctively bitter floral hops. Both sides work well with each other, producing a srink that goes down easily. A nice simple brew.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle poured a golden color with a thin cap of white head. Aroma has grains, light hops, and some yeast. Mouth feel is medium for the style and the carbonation on the lower side. Flavor has light supporting malt, grains, mild hops, and a clean finish. Fairly full flavored for a lager with touches of bitterness poking in from time to time.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Clear gold with a large white head that lasts well, high bead. Aroma of light bread, mild floral and spicy notes. Sweet with some caramel as well as light bread, gentle bitterness teases through, leaving some spices to linger. Fair enough.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle in a DFH shaped pint glass
A - Light bronze color with a milky off-white cap. Unimpressive retention with minimal lacing.
S - Strong cereal grains, caramel, light citrus, applesauce, toast, grass, tea like aroma.
T - Firm hop bitterness transitions into a hefty amount of sweet grainy malt, tannins and minerals hit the edges and back of the tongue along with grassy and pine hops start to build into a long dry finish.
M - Full bodied, full prickly carbonation, very smooth on the finish.
If you had this blind you wouldn’t believe it was a 4.8% pale lager. This is heavily hopped, full flavored and full bodied making for an excellent session beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours golden with a white head that quickly dissipates to a spotty lace. Aromas of malt with skunky notes. Taste is crisp, like a pilsener, but maltier. Nice citrus hop bite with notes of pine. Light, peppery mouthfeel. Refreshing. This would be a great beer for a barbecue.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained white head, with some lacing, over a clear, dark yellow (SRM 4) body.....nose is cereal, minimal esters, light hop spice....taste is cereal malt, light hop bitterness, hints of hop spice....mouth feel light,watery, carbonation high, with light acid. This is a well made, but exquisitely simple and dull beer. It fits the style, is obviously session-able, but why? BJCP 6/3/12/4/6
