2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle to pint, bottled under the name "Lager of the Lakes." Clear golden pour with white head. Classic pilsner scent, however not offensive like many of its peers. Taste is grainy, crisp, not bad for a lager but certainly nothing special.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured an unclear light golden. (Was warmed and cooled a number of times) Small tight creamy white head, fairly lasting with lace. Aroma is yeasty, pale malty. Grassy, light citrus, soft grain, cracker, tipping to sweet. Quite aromatic for a lager. Flavor follows. Crisp, creamy, and refreshing. Almost medium body. Nice bit of earthy grassy bitterness. Balanced sweetness. Finishes dry. Tasty. Easy drinking. Great lager.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Yeasty, citrus aroma. A little malt, crusty/cracker-y. Taste is a little sweeter/more citrusy than I expected from the aroma. Light, sweet, citrus, very refreshing.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Small sized white foamy head. The aroma is cereal and grass, some hops. A medium bodied pilsner. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are spicy and a touch floral. Lively carbonation. Nice pilsner. Clean and crisp tasting. There are enough hops to balance the cereal malt. Would make a good summer session beer. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. "

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Save On. 3.5 months old. Very pale golden straw with slight chill haze flat white head and lace. Slight skunky hop aroma almost like Saison Dupont (saaz?) with some grass and bread. Dry grassy crackery with minimal sweetness and medium assertive lingering grassy bitterness. Very good.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear light pale straw color with a thin white head that fades into a spotty film. There is a couple spots of lace. The aroma is lightly grassy and makes me think of macro or mass produced lagers. The flavor is similar. The only difference is that there is a little bit of a grassier finish to the beer, but it's really, really thin. Reminds me of Third Coast Beer, only with slightly less lemon zest

Bottle. It is what it is and its pretty good for what it is. Clear light yellow pour with large white head. Wheat and grain aroma. Slightly bitter in the finish. High on my list of "premium" lagers

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: NOV 3, 2013 Bottle: bright goldenrod, with only a mild chill haze obscuring it; topped with a thin, bone-white film that is gone in a few moments. Aroma is plentiful on the grains, light bread notes, toast, and even a dollop of sweet-ish caramel/toffee. Musty and metallic, dried up hops hit in the finish. Taste contains grain, bread, a very small hint of sweet toffee, some musty hops, a finishing hint of lemon zest, a touch of lager yeast and a slight metallic tone. Not the best lager out there, but not bad. Refreshing.
