Bottle thanks to Dan. Poured a clear gold with a white head that dissipated slowly to the edges. Aroma had a bit of a musty lager yeast note with a bit of sweet backing grains. Flavor had a combination of grass and sweet malts with a bit of a mustiness in the finish/aftertaste.

Straw golden pour, very slight malt aroma, 1f head with vigorous pour. Slight spices in taste, easy finish - sweet and slightly malty. Good for the style.

Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark amber color with a huge foamy yellow-white head that produced some lacing. The aroma was faintly, sour and tangy. The flavor was tangy, tart and nutty with notes of sourdough, lemon, toasted caramel and honey. The finish was medium length with notes of caramel and fruit lingering. Medium body. Decent.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draught. Copper with off white head. Aroma is sweet floral hops and cereal. Flavor follows adding caramel and removing some of its emphasis on the floral hops moving towards more bittering hops that last through a relatively long finish. Not that interesting, but alright.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I didn’t even realize this was a top 50 premium lager until after I was finished drinking it, but I wasn’t surprised. It pours golden amber with a tall, creamy off white head with good retention. The aroma is mostly fruity peaches, banana, and a hint of noble hops. The flavor is fruity up front that goes grainy and ends with a mild noble hop bitterness and some dry cracker like malts. It leaves a doughy aftertaste. I kind of like these lagers a little dryer and crisp, but it was still enjoyable for a style that can be really boring.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice clear dark gold/orange color with medium amount of bubbly, quickly dissapating head. Aroma is big - can smell it from table level - some mellow doughy yeastiness, with sweet grassy base and slight citric notes. Flavor is pretty dry with a nice medium bodied grain base and some floral hop notes. Overall, a very good lager.
