2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(US backlog 2012) 8x draught sample flight at VA brewpub 14/ix/12. Mild malty lager, refreshing enough in the late VA summer sun, but mostly muddled (underbrewed, fast-tracked vs. "6 glorious weeks", maybe this is an Old European reservation of mine?), forgettable and slightly meh.

1.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Zero aroma in this brew, and a halfway sucky pour. Amber with no head. Taste is mildly sweet, but aftertaste is skunky (albeit short).

Draft at the brewpub on 1/19/2013. Poured a golden color with a small, vibrant white head. Aroma was some light lager malts, some mild earthy notes. Flavor was crisp, lager notes, some grain in there too. Pretty refreshing.

Location: Draft at the Brewpub, 11/21/12
Aroma: This one has a nose of clean malts, light citrus, and a little grass
Appearance: It pours a clear gold color with a white head and light lace
Flavor: It has a clean malt flavor, some citrus, a little bit sweet, with a light bitterness
Palate: This one has a crisp and clean feel, a light body, and a smooth, clean finish
This is a pretty good lager with a nice flavor, and one of the best examples of this style that I have tried.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Strong caramel and hop profile, almost like a bitter ale. Amber color implies the same. A very malty lager overall, with some bitterness to balance.
