4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled on 11/15/2013. This Premium Lager pours an orange gold color from a 12oz bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is grainy, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied lager. The malts are grainy and slightly sweet. The hops are herbal and spicy. Nice carbonation. A nice version of a ‘pre-prohibition’ lager. Grainy, fruity and slightly spicy. Nice dry finish. I think that this is what an American Lager SHOULD taste like. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly spicy and bitter.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep blond color. Aroma of grains. Same in taste with an intense malt-iness and a weird sweet aftertaste. Not my favorite beer, and not cause its a lager.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is what i think the beer that people drink in B&W movies taste like. Like the beer you snuck from the ole mans cooler when you were a kid. Same stuff. You knew it was supposed to taste good but you hadn’t developed a palate for it. i like lagers ok and this one beats the so called premiums quite handily. Not bad..Not as thin as the big boys and certainly more grain taste. Malt and hops are quite pale. Another good yard work brew.

Bottle from Sourced St Pancrass. Light amber body with soapy head. Nose is of hops, caramel, spices. Taste also nice and hoppy, with some cactus, pine and spicier (ginger) notes. Really sweet and creamy texture. Enjoyable.

Smell: Light, lightly malty notes of crustless white bread, crackers with a sliver of fruitiness, lemon, and grassy herbs.
Taste: Soft, bready barley, a bit crackery, with an ample cereal sweetness present. Scantly grainy. Lemon, herbal-toned hops, maybe a bit grassy. Further taste of sans salt saltines on the drying, nicely bitter finish a zip of suds.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355 ml bottle bought at CitySuper in Harbour City in Tsim Sha Tsui.
Clear golden orange colour; One quarter finger head and soapy white foam which fades in 30 seconds; Small sticky lacing with notable soft carbonation; Aroma of light full malt, with light honey, fresh loaf, avocado, hint of dark fruit and lemony trace; Fairly light sweet taste of malt, with moderate lemon, light yeast, fairly light liquorices, and thin grassy hops; Medium body, quite thick to oily palate; Taste profile is premium lager on the light side - full maltyness is rather thin, with good shades of buttery (not a fault) avocado, good yeast and doughty; Hoppiness is very light lemon nose and initially very low grass. Astringency gets longer and better with further sips, with light liquorices all the way to a neat, lasting finish; Slightly dry after taste, fairly easy and refreshing to mouth.
Comments: Not as big and heavy like most premium lager, this one is light, refreshing without compromising the maltyness. The Cluster hops works in hint of dark fruit nose and subtle hoppiness, which works comfortably throughout. Not a mind-blower, but more like a nice change of scenery. A pretty good one.
