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.

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.

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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a hazy bright golden color with an enormous creamy yellow-white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was malty with biscuit, bread, and faint fruity and perfumey hops. The flavor was malty bread, honey, biscuit, faint fruity hops, moderate bitterness and a bit of perfume. Long finish with bitterness and perfume growing. Moderately full bodied. Meh.
