3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a transparent orange bronze with a thin-lacing wispy white head. Aroma of lightly sweet toasty pale malts and a touch of floral noble hops. Starts with a decent body and carbonation with pleasantly sweet notes and good bitter balance before a smooth finish. Pretty true to style and very drinkable. A nice lager.

Draft sample at brewery. Pale gold with white head. Aromas of salty corn chips, light malt, metal, and some grassy hops. Clean, bright flavors of all of the above, very mellow, with a slightly grassy finish. Very nicely done, and seems to hold up consistently in the bottle.

This is good for a session beer, water seems kinda hard and the malts and hops are average at best, but the overall flavor is nice and refreshing.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The aroma is malty with a corn meal element and a hint of hops and cinnamon. The appearance is gold with a large head. The flavor is like the aroma and not good but not bad. The palate is watery. Overall not something I want to get.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours orange-amber into the glass, with an initial 2-finger head that tames to a nice cap, leaving chunky lace. A sweet malty nose ensues, with some herbal bready notes. Decent herb, bread and citrus flavors, with a nice earthen hop back. The finish, slightly metallic, doesn’t prolong, but lasts well for the style. This is well-integrated, and although not "over-the-top", it is satisfying. Would make for a good sessionista. An oily, smooth mouthfeel with medium carbo levels goes down well. All-in-all, this is quite good for such a broad category.
