3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at a promo night at Andy’s in Bagota. Pours a beautiful amber with a clear body and minimal head. There is definitely a toasted flavor to this beer and you can smell it before you taste it. Malty enough to be called a lager with just a little bt of hops for balance.

wonderful lager. nice medium depth head, chinese chesnut color mid- autumn. recycled paper colored foamy head. sweet caramel taste sugary. after taste is sweet ice tea with lemon. blue point theme coming through - maybe the soft water? sugar?

If you take this beer in context, it is actually quite excellent. It is usually served along side Coors and Bud Light here on Long Island. Nice slight malty aroma and flavor. Nothing complex but it still has a lot more character than its competitors.

Not really a bad beer but just nothing really special about it. after reading the deScription i was expecting something wit a little more body. Not something I would seek out but ok none the less.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Poured a medium and clear copperish color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of toasted malts, light roast, and grains. Tastes of toasted malts and grains, There was something else in the flavor I just can’t put my finger on - almost a sweet, vanillish something. Thinner body.

I thought this was a nice effort. It has some really nice copper looks with a nice firm head. The nose had a nicely tamed aroma of malt. It had a fair amount of bitterness that blended out to a nice smooth palate.

Light beige head about 1 cm thick. Good carbonation. Light roasty aroma with some bready malts, vanilla and a touch of hops. Color is a orange amber. Light and crisp flavor. More tasted graisn, and more of a hops presence. Good balance between the hops and the roastyness. Finished with a little bit of alcohol presence which I am quite surprised at with only 4.8% abv. Lingering malty sweetness and a hint of hops bitterness. This is a pretty good brew and s pretty good representation of the style.
