3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Received sample 12-oz can from distributor to try. Pours a clear golden straw colored brew with a creamy white head that slowly dissipates to a cream top and minimal lacing. Aroma of lager yeast, bread dough, a hint of floral hops and a touch of honey. Taste is light to medium bodied, flavors of bread dough, floral hops and some mild lager yeast. Finish is semi-sweet with a lingering bread dough aftertaste.
Now why does the Atwater’s Lager beer can design remind me of a 1970s era Stroh’s Bohemian beer can?

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pretty close to your typical light lager. A strange green hue to this though, similar to Badass Lager which makes me question Detroit’s water supply.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden-amber pour with moderate but not excessive head.
Sweet aroma and sweet flavor. Hops, malt, and a hint of the advertised caramel. Very soft mouthfeel.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Poured a hazed yellow with a HUGE white head that stood an inch and a half over the rim. It wouldn’t die down and made it hard to pour the rest of the beer. The aroma at first smelled like honey malt but then came some tart vinegar. The flavor was also pretty sour as well. Poop that sucks. It was the only beer in the fridge. I couldn’t drink it. One of only three or four drain pours out of well over 3000 beers.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This beer first distinguished itself by the amount of head present - it seemed to sort of gush all over the place. Body seemed a bit thin and was a clear (but not brilliant) yellow. Aroma was slightly sweet; not quite corny or grainy...almost mediciney, although I read soap in another review and could agree with that too. Flavor is slightly sweet but rather metallic and soapy. Mouthfeel is OK.
I won’t be driving any great distance to have this again. I bought this 12oz single at Brew&Brew in North Ridgeville, OH.
