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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear gold, with ample white head. Aroma of roasted malts. Taste is sweet and malty at first, fading into a slightly bitter palate. Still, fairly smooth and drinkable, but not my favorite lager.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A solid lager. Pours a bright golden yellow with a fizzy head that leaves a light lacing ring. The nose is toasty with honey and caramel malts and a moderate citrus hop presence. Nice crisp, full bodied lager with a solid hop backbone and light tropical and citrus hops.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle@ trailer. Bright golden color with ivory head. Nice lagered grainy pale malt, light berry fruit, mild hop aromas. Smooth mouthfeel. Crisp bready pale malt flavors with light fruits, and a drying nicely bitter finish---not bad.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From a bottle. Pours clear amber with a lasting tightly bubbled head, not much aroma, smooth with a hop hit at the back. I don’t really like lagers but this is quite nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355 ml bottle from Ales by Mail.
Clear, golden body, with a big, stable, frothy, white head, that leaves a thick lacing.
Aroma of grains, hay, grass, caramel, some bread and biscuit.
Taste follows the nose and adds herbs and some citrus.
Quite light, slick mouthfeel, with a moderate carbonation and it finishes bitter, with herbs, grass and slight sweet bready notes.
Nice one! Fresh, clean and crisp, with enjoyable grainy aromas and smooth, balancing, sweet malts. One of those quite rare Lagers, that I really enjoy drinking!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
For me this isn’t much different than a Budweiser or Coors or any other American lager. Maybe a touch better but I would have to have one here to compare it to be sure.

12 oz bottle from BOTW (Rochester), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass.
App.: Clear golden with a full, off-white head.
Aroma: Sweet grainy maltiness, a hint of peppery/grassy hops, clean.
Palate: Medium body, fairly full carbonation.
Flav.: Sweet grainy/cereal maltiness, a touch of something that seems like vodka (odd), very light grassy/woodsy hops, clean; dry with low to moderate bitterness and a grainy/cereal malt finish.
Meh. It’s fine but quite boring.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a yellow-gold with tight, fluffy head. Sulfur, restrained banana ester, and light malty character on the nose. Bright hop bitterness slightly overpowers the malt, and there’s a hint of diacetyl. High carbonation and thin-medium bodied.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can - Pours a clear, golden/yellow with a nice creamy head that left some lacing. Malt and grass aromas, semi-sweet. Has a nice tang, but the finish could be cleaner. I was expecting more.
