2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
I get this in 6 pack cans. Nothing glamorous here. Itís an easy drinking lager and I just had one right after a Tecate. Marginally better. Though I wasnít expecting to be blown out of the water either. Iíd only suggest dumbing down the price of a 6íer a little, especially if this is the intended nature of this beer. Donít get me wrong, not a bad beer for a standard lager, but for $10.99 a 6 pack, I was hoping for something notable to write about. Doesnít get me shit-housed like Big Eye, so thatís a plus. Still $4 cheaper than a 6 of Sculpin, so thatís good too. One little thing that irks me, however... the cans are packed so tight that itís impossible to crack one open, even as slow as possible, without it spraying globules of beer over everything in an 8-12" diameter. I like the beer and I love LOVE Ballast Point beers, but I canít return to this on the regular.

Better than average for the style, but not good enough to transcend the style limitations. Light, crisp and clean with a sturdy grain and faint hop backbone w some light fruit in the flavor. Enjoyed, but glad I didnít get 6."

Bottle. Pours a bit hazy, straw to gold. Typical lager aroma -- cereal grains, dough, maybe a light touch of Noble hops in the background. Taste follows, a bit sweet but pretty well balanced and clean overall. Enjoyable but not remarkable or particularly memorable.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a light yellow color with a hops aroma. Taste is clean, crisp, and very easy drinking. Very well balanced, slight hoppy aftertaste but overall is easy drinking. Similar to a light beer with more flavor and complexity. Extra points for its refeshing quality.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. can poured to a SA Lager glass, showing a clear, straw/light gold color, with frothy , white head foam, and dots & dashes of lacing. The aroma was light grain, light pils nose, but no noticeable DMS scent, a touch of yeast, light, lemony citrus, and a bit of grassiness. Light bodied, and effervescent in appearance & carbonation, with low, peppery bitterness, resulting in a clean & crisp, sessionable Lager. Appreciated this so much more after just returning from a local fest that served a lot of cold, macro brews of similar styles.
