1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Straw color on the pour and a white carbonated head that disappears quickly. The aroma is slightly of honey but mostly of straw. The flavor has some sort of spice in it but I can mostly only taste the carbonation. Not one that I’m going to buy in the future. It is budweiser in a fancier bottle.

Middle of the road lager...very drinkable. A little thin and watery mouthfeel. Could use a kick in the ass, hop-wise, but OK, I guess. I’d like to see a little more crisp finish in this style.

Should we herald the return of this brew as the brewery does? Don’t think so. Golden color with white foamy head. Nose is straw, honey, bread. Tad watery and thin. Flavor is earthy but dull.

Bottled. Ok beer. Tastes like a helles. Nothing really going on here. Average.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle - Pours a golden yellow in color with an active white head that quickly diminishes to a thin covering. Aroma is of medium malt with little hops. Flavor is malty with some nuttiness. Body is too thin and carbonation detracts from the experience. Mild hop bitterness helps the short finish. OK, but not a great effort.

didn’t know what to think of this brew having limited knowledge of the style. poured a straw golden color with almost no head. Taste was mainly sweet with some florial hops notes. Watery

Pours straw yellow, loose white head. Light body, with a bit of fruit and a bit of spice. Maybe even a slight hint of honey. An OK offering.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2011 I am generally not a big fan of this style. This came in my beer club and is a brewer that I generally am not very fond of. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a straw yellow color with a large fluffy white head that produced some lacing. The aroma is light and dominated by a yeasty bready element. The texture is light and crisp but perhaps a bit thin. There is some light malt and an interesting spice character to the brew. Drinkable but not something I would seek out again.
