3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice looking 12 oz bottle pours hazy golden. Tons of sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Tried to pour slowly to avoid it, but pretty sure some got through. Tons of damascenone in aroma and flavor. Just grape big league chew all the way through. Pretty dry finish. Definitely full-bodied for a lager. Pretty nice.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: copper and gold under a voluminous white head which lines the inside of my glass with lacey fingers. A slow stream of bubbles keeps the head afloat in blotchy beauty. Swirls thick and full.
Nose: bread crusts, saltines, green grass, key lime. Brisk – dry then zesty, zesty then dry. Lemon zest. Tropical zip in the back – papaya and star fruit. Floral and herbal esters weave in and out. Dandelion and white flower petals.
Palate: sweetness along the edge leads into crisp, dry, bitterness. Papaya and banana skin. Greenness of flowers, stems and all. Key lime and sweet mown grass. Smooth mouthfeel and gently mouth-coating with subtle sweet grains. Pineapple, coconut, and star fruit. Tickle of spice in the back – grains of paradise.
Final Thoughts: delicious! I was worried the bottle was going to be a dud seeing as months had passed from when I bought the bottle to when I actually drank it. Thankfully the beer deities were friendly and the beer delightful. Another winner from Breckenridge.
