3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
on tap @ Arnold’s / Cincinnati OH --- Clear light amber with a slow to drop white head, splotches of lace. Taste is simple light malt with an immediate overbalance of citrus hops early in the palate. The hops, though dominant, aren’t very strong (since the malt is light to begin with, they don’t need to be). The total effect for me is of a watered down IPA. Drinkable, especially in hot weather, but not at all memorable.

Sampled at the W&C Beer Fest 2014. It poured a blonde color with a white head. The aroma was of citrus, some floral hops, bread and yeast. The taste was of citrus hops, bread and yeast with a light palate and a crisp bitter finish. Very nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: pine, rose petal, and grapefruit on nose. Taste: bitter grapefruit and pine, bitter finish, some sweet caramel up front. Palate: Silky mouth feel. Appearance: Cloudy yellow body and creamy ivory head.
Unique and almost game-changing, this beer will have you reevaluate what a lager can be.

6oz pour at Smoke and Barrel. Pours a clear gold with some lacing white head. Nose is a mix of lemony hops, yeast, honey, corn. Flavor is solid, lightly sweet, lightly herbal, mild soap, mild honey, a little yeast. Clean finish. Fine.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours clear gold with a white head. Taste hoppy, grassy. I thought this was good. I could drink this again.

Hmmm. Seems lost to me. Not something but is something. Oh no 29 characters to go + 1.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Jerry’s. Brilliant orange-gold with good, foamy, white head, excellent fine lacing / Musty, lightly skunky nose of cream, citrus, candied sugar / Medium body, a hint thin, very hoppy but smooth, somewhat fat but lovely balance / Flavor of orange peel, hint of grapefruit, pine, spun sugar, biscuit / Drinks like a pale ale. Quite nice. For an imperial lager, probably rates higher than my score.

UPDATED: MAR 15, 2014 Had on tap at Ashley’s, pours a clear gold with small head. Aroma is hoppy up front, grassy, with malt in the back. Flavor is snappy hops, medium mouth feel, lingering hops. Really big lingering hop bitterness. Bitterest lager I’ve ever had.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated on 7-22-2010 at Ratebeer Summer Gathering in Grand Rapids, MI at Hopcat. This draft beer pours a small white head with a long retention, transparent body, no visible carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is malt, yeast, pine, crisp hops. The taste is malt, crisp, pine hops, and has a short dry finish. The palate is tingly and this beer is medium bodied. The flavors just did not come together very well and it left me not wanting this beer again. It is not a bad beer, it just did not suit my palate. To each his/her own.
