3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I thought this to be a pretty good lager. It was nice and light, crisp, etc. It’s a little overpriced IMO.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy pale yellow with a thick and fizzy white head. Citrus aroma smells of mandarin oranges, banana, wheat, and grassy hops. Delicous, almost hefeweizen taste. Very creamy with a slight sweetness. Grassy hops and earth tones also dominate the palate. Nice crisp finish is dry and slightly bitter.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour is bright golden yellow straw color with a big dense beautiful white head that faded into a bright white skin...smell is nicely hoppy with dry grassy notes...taste is indeed breadlike, almost with some pumpernickel notes with a lightly sweet quality fading into a bitter dry finish....

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Golden pour with a sizeable head. Interesting, the foam was grouping together unlike any other beer. It almost looked like a smiley face in the glass. Totally weird. Aroma was lagery - malty. Hints of bread and earth, but overall I wasn’t a big fan of this. I’ll stick with their Celebrator.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big malty aroma, some floral hoppy notes. Light yellow, pours a large, long lasting, rocky off-white head. Flavour is sweet malt, hint of fruit, (green grape,) unsalted cracker, some fine hops also. Light bodied, crisp, clean, wonderfullerly bitter, loads of carbonation. Terrific! I feel this style is very much under-rated.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500mL bottle. Label is slightly different than that in the picture. A fairly clear pale-gold pour with a thick and fizzy off-white head that leaves some slight rings of lace. Crisp aroma of lemon, wheat, yeast and some cream. The taste is definitely bready and malty. A little one-dimensional. I wasn’t expecting this taste at all from the aroma. Quite perfumed. Grainy body with the slightest hints of orange and lemon. Not a style I think much of, I guess. Fairly bland and boring. Still, it’s a refreshing and solid beer.
