3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from Raley’s in Vacaville, CA. This is top notch for a lager. Most are jjust a corny, grainey mess. This had a decent hop presence and had a sweet and fruity flavor. Not my style so had to knock it down a bit on the overall

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Where and how: bottle 355 ml
Aromanice rounded malt approach with gentle hopping. Cluster hops? – well over reminded me of fresh polish premium lagers.
Top: large, off-white.
Base: amber gold, clear
Palate : medium thinner, soft with light carbonation. Average finish.
Taste: decent frontal feel. Soft malts with gentle herbal hops. Milder carbonation than euro brother is the difference.
other notes nice everyday choice for pale lager choice.

Amarelo claro, espuma de média formação e persistência. Aroma levemente caramelizado, cereais, pão, biscoito, mel. Paladar de dulçor e amargor leves, corpo também leve, média carbonatação. Aftertaste mantém um leve amargor lupulado, dulçor amendoado, boa drinkability.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A golden color with a white head. The aroma contains some hay, corn, and lemons. The flavor is very crisp and refreshing with a burst of lemons and spices. The aftertaste is dry. Overall this is a great summer beer. I’d probably prefer a Steam for sessions but this works well.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From M&S. Well, the faux-sunfaded bear emblazoned bottle, historical blurb and resplendent anchor crown all score bonus points as, let’s be honest, these things matter. But my overriding impression? Thank God were not trapped in 1876 with no more than Cluster to brew with. Bizarre English chipshop batter, dried tea leaf, dewy grass, fennel, marzipan nose. Drinks like a dull sunstruck pasteurised northern English attempt at lager. Stale grass, licked slate and rubber, mineral heavy water, Some redeeming toasted bread and corn-like malt softness on the swallow. A pity.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz. bottle. Aroma of spicy, lightly peppery, vegetal hop and biscuity malt, with notes of saltine cracker, faint dough and a slight herbal tone. Clear medium golden in color with a moderately foamy, lasting white head, and plenty of visible effervescence. Flavor profile is pretty well balanced with a good bit of spicy hoppiness throughout, more crackery/biscuity malt here as well as a fairly strong dosage of hop bitterness towards the finish, this straying a bit towards metallic. Palate is quite dry and high in carbonation, body is light-medium. Surprisingly flavorful. Very nice as a warm-weather quencher and all-around general purpose lager. Unsurprisingly, tastes like what you might imagine a beer from the 19th century would.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This is what a "regular" American beer should be. Average looking yellow pour, but the head is thick as cream. Tons of lacing on the glass. Unimpressive nose but nice malty, hoppy flavor. But the hops don’t over power. You can sip it, you can chug it. Good cold or room temperature. Nice mild bitter aftertaste. Bottle.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Très belle couleur blonde dorée, des centaines de petites bulles alimentent une mousse blanche généreuse et qui se tient. Nez malts, caramel et miel. La bouche est maltée et gentiment houblonnée avec des houblons épicés et herbacés. L’amertume est moyenne et le corps agréable. La carbo très bonne. Ce n’est qu’une lager mais une excellente lager ...

Bottle in Amsterdam. Nice glowing orange body. Nose is grassy, metallic. Taste of grains, hops, sweet. Bitterness. Light bodied. Fair enough.
