2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap: orange-amber with large frothy white head. Aroma is definitely lager-like, with grass, bisquit, and some wet newspaper. Flavor is crisp with a dry bitter grass, a hint of honey but no sweetness, and bisquit. It is good for the style, but not my favorite type of beer. Good cold on a hot day.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured minimal head on a clearer, medium straw colored body.
The aroma is faint; a little grain smell comes through.
The taste is grainy, mild bitterness with caramel which rounds it out nicely.
The texture is crisp but soft with moderate carbonation.
Overall, a nice and easy drink.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft. Clear light amber pour, with an off white head. Stale malt, caramel, some doughy sweetness, and light metallic hops. This beer doesn’t interest me.

Draft to pint at Dutch’s. Looks solid; a mostly transparent deep orange with thin white head that dissipates into sticky lacing. Smells and tastes solid; doughy and malty with a nice hop presence and notes of caramel. Solid on the palate. A nice lager.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pretty good lager. More taste than the Cher ami, but still missing something. I don’t know what else to say.
