1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle. Pours a hazy, golden blonde with a thin, meager head that quickly dissipates. Faint aroma of white bread. Taste is light and crisp, settling into a creamy, lemony sweetness on the palate. Refreshing, but otherwise unremarkable.

Moderately bitter up front, this beer develops a grainy, biscuit-like flavor towards the back. However, itís so light in flavor, you almost miss the whole thing. They really needed to add more to this beer.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a pale yellow with a fizzy head that leaves almost no lacing. The nose is of a macro corn plasticity. Flavors are similar, of sweet adjunct corn and timid grains to finish. It "feels" like a macro lager... too "corn" sweet, fizzy carbonation, light seltzer mouthfeel and a plastic effervescence. I so wanted to like it more, but honestly, I just canít.

Poured from a bottle. Pale gold, virtually no head. Aroma is earthy with some malt and yeast. Taste is on the sweet side, but rather bland. Light to medium body with low carbonation. Goes down smoothly, but not a beer Iíd try again.

A typical lager with a slightly different taste. I can't put my finger on what the slight taste is but it isn't terrible

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from ABC variety pack. Poured into pint glass, clear pale gold color with white head. Aroma of sweet pale malt, straw and faint floral hops. Taste is malt sweetness, very little hop notes. Light body, light carbonation, crisp. Slightly better then the average macro, but only slightly.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma: Sweet grainy aroma from the malt, some noble hops in there providing a floral aroma. Apperance: Excellent clarity, good golden color and head retention. Taste: Nice, slightly sweet malt profile. Medium hop bitterness, but think it could use a little more hops to support the malt. Palate: Mouthfeel was very good and it was filled with a great malt profile. I just wish the hops were a little more balanced with the malt. Overall: Great overall drinking beer, very close to the dortmunder-export style but would like some more noble hops added so the it is better balanced.
