3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I don’t believe I’ve ever had a strong lager before. I’m a fan of well crafted lagers and this one fits the bill. Some honey in the nose and faint hops. The flavor is hay and honey. More of an amped up lager with a sweet finish.
The alcohol wasn’t too noticeable but was warming in the end. Would buy again if it was available locally.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle poured. Pours a clear golden color with no head. Looks like apple juice. Skunky aroma from.a distance. Flavor is really sweet which suprised me. Turns a bit sour, but not really in the good way. Drinkable, but not super enjoyable.

Macro strong Eastern Euro swill. Slightly skunked corny aroma and flavor. Lightly floral with vegetal flavors and a honey-like sweetness. A bit if fusel burn in the swallow. Nasty, but pretty, pouring clear golden with a small ring of fluffy white head. Somewhat clean finish.

Bottle. Pours a clear copper color with a smallish white head on there. Nose has a lot of corn on there and just a slight bit of skunk to it. Taste is also pretty skunky, and doesnt seem very good.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 500ml bottle, pours a dark golden liquid with an incredibly long lasting white small head...literally lasting 30 minutes or more. The aroma was very surprising. I have never had a strong pale lager. The alcohol was slightly noticeable with slight floral, grain, and caramel. Taste was medium sweetness, lightly bitter, with a medium body, creamy texture, and soft carbonation. The finish was slight bitterness and fading to a bit of alcohol warmth and light caramel. Not what I was expecting, but I did enjoy it. Overall, nice mouth-feel, just a bit of sweetness, just the right amount of bitterness, and the finish lingers with the warmth and bitterness dominating at the end.

The aroma is very skunky, but it doesn’t taste nearly as bad as it smells. Not much to recommend here though.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Beer of the month club December 2013. pours crystal clear yellow gold with almost no head. Aroma is grassy and a bit sour. Taste is extremely sweet with a yeasty bready backbone. I didn’t realize that it had some strength to it because it was masked very well. However, its a bit cloyingly sweet. Could use more bittering hops as well as aromatic. Seems unfinished.
