3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bright amber-copper color, nice white foamy head that leaves a nice lacing in the glass. Has burnt roasted, malty caramel aromas, sweet and roasty malt flavors, medium bodied with a full and rounded mouthfeel, finishes clean with a nice sweetness. A pretty good fall brew, definitely worth a try.

4.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
I believe it is the lager yeast in this one that sets me on fire. I am so used to ales, but this one knocked me on my backside.
Filled with flavor, this would be a nice offering year-round. Seems to age well in the fridge, I'll buy a little more next year.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12/3/03. Poured out of 12 oz. bottle, obtained in a trade with Indra on RateBeer 11/18/03. Light amber color. Pale malt nose, not much. White fluffy head dissipates. Light malt and hops on a medium body. Nice texture but not much flavor going on. Finish is smooth but short, not too exciting. Very surprised to see this one score so high with the gallery. I found it pretty mediocre all-around.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 17, 2005 Bright, copper body with high carbonation and a sudsy white head that faded away. Buttery toasted malt aroma and a hint of hay. Fresh, moderately sweet nutty malt flavor with a touch of spicy herbs. Some tartness in the finish. This is a tasty refreshing lager and another solid Boulevard beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange-amber pour with a thin head of small white bubbles. Buttery malt aromas, some citrus and hops. Floral hops stand out the most in the flavor. Caramel is present as well. Followed by some malt and a bitter finish. Creamy palate and a medium body.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Copper color with a light head and light lacing. The aroma is buttery (diactyl) and malty. The flavor is light and creamy, slightly nutty, lots of caramel. How is this a lager? This has lots more specialty malts than I'm used to in a lager. Finishes light and nutty, not too bad.

UPDATED: DEC 2, 2005 Nice caramel color. Nose very malty, a bit sweet. Huge malty flavor, nice caramel tones, nice hit of bitterness at the end, sort of a faint Cascade-esque citrus bite to it. Quite creamy. Really, really good stuff.
