3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Meh. A good crisp and clean lager with a good profile but not my jam really. Pours a bright golden straw with a thin head of white, light carb. The nose is grainy and cereal malted with a bit of lemon and spice. Pretty bland profile but a good crisp and refreshing brew.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: clear pale straw, with two fingers of persistent, foamy, bright white head. Aroma: bright, clean, and fresh, full of floral, grassy hops and toasted white bread. Taste: surprisingly sweet and crackery up front, then there’s some pepper, grassy and floral hops . Finish: clean and crisp, with a bit of sweet grains, lemongrass, aspirin, and pepper. Notes: Really, really liked this. Drank it in less than a minute, I think, because the flavors and palate were so refreshing. Basically a perfect lager, but now I’m sad because I’d only bought the single can. 12 oz can from TW&M in Alexandria, Virginia.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. can from Root Cellar. Pours a clear bright yellow with a finger of white head that dissipates quickly into nothing. Notes of straw, cracker, corn, lemon and minerals - kind of bland. Light-bodied, with low carbonation for the style and a dry, malty, mineralic mouthfeel. A bit of a letdown after tasting the new Even Keel cans.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at CT Hops for Hope. Funny, was told it was an IPA. Totally drank as a Pilsner or nicely hopped and full helles. Well, there ya go, that’s what it was. The pour was very heady golden yellow, a foamy mess. Aroma was solid, great grassy hops and cereal malts underneath it all. Flavor emphasized some pilsy grassy elements with a bright firm hoppy presence over it all and in the finish. Clean, yet full malt profile and base, a big helles for sure. Solid in style, but their Sculpin is always a more exciting stand out!

Draught @ Ballast Point Little Italy, San Diego, CA
Pours clear golden with a small head. Aroma of grass, butter and cardboard. Taste is crisp, grassy and sweetish with hints of butter. Finish is sweet, malty and grainy with hints of grass. Quite bulky for a craft lager.
