One of the easiest everyday beers ever found. Love this stuff and would buy it by the cartload if readily available.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I admit to liking it just a little more because I’m having it on draft at The Berghoff. Clean lager color, a thin foam ring around the edge. Light malt smell with a bit of pils character to it. Clean crisp "Special Export" taste that shows a hard water profile and puts German hops on the sides of my tongue. Hop bitterness builds with each sip. Now a much improved and very distinctive all-malt flagship beer.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
First of all, I don’t think this is really a lager. For me its much closer to an APA (which is one of my favorite styles). hazy gold with a frothy white head. decent lacing. nose is grass with some hops coming through. Taste is crisp and slightly bitter. Bitter hops on the finish with some nasal linger. I like this beer and could easily session it.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Clear yellow brew with white head, good lacing as the glass goes down. Aroma of light malt and a little grass. Taste is sweet light malt at the start with a pleasant dry grassy finish, a little crisp green fruit at the end. Not a hint of adjunct and no off tastes or smells. Enough character to rise above being merely an inoffensive brew. Simple but tasty.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a clear, dark gold with a half finger of white head. Aroma of honey and light vanilla. Slight aroma of light citrus also. Taste is medium-heavy sweet. Honey with some herbal hops. Medium bodied with a somewhat thick and sticky texture. Fizzy carbonation but a long finish. Overall, not bad. Pretty good for berghoff brews.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This was the first beer I’d ever tried from Minhas craft brewery. They do a fine job- the packaging was interesting, well designed with care and thought, thus the relatively high appearance rating. The pour itself was fizzy but not too much so, with a pale hay color and honey edges. A nice crisp finish. Not all together memorable, but a njce beer.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Poured clear, bright, honey-golden with a short-lived white head. The aroma picked up sweet honey and corn notes with touches of vanilla and dry earth around.. smelled drinkable, but not great. The flavor found honey and sweet bready malts at the core, with lightly tangy malts and a touch of apple skin around.. finished with some tangy notes over sweet honeyed malts. Light-bodied with an ok flow through the palate.. filling carbonation.. drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is a hazy bronze with a small white head. Aroma is grainy maltyness with a little burning. Flavor is a honey like other raters have said but there is a nice bready-dry malt. Finish does have some sweetness but not anything overpowering. This is OK. They were going in the right direction but it’s a little too sweet.
