2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a light gold color with a small, white head. The nose has a slight odd green hop note and a little pale malt. The flavor has a peppery bitterness, off metallic notes, some grain, green apple, green pepper, and alcohol. Medium bodied with low carbonation and an odd bitter and vegetal finish. This brew is a bit of mess.

Pours a hazy honey color with a thin white head. Aroma has some sweet straw and grassiness...faint citrus and tea. Flavor follows suit...notable sweetness...mild grassiness. Mouthfeel is light/medium and silky with a slightly hoppy bitter finish.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle, $2.55 @ Bert’s Better Beers, Hooksett, NH. Used a lager glass. Head that laced real well down the glass. Nice steady carbonation. Nose is grassy, hay like, Light malt. Malty flavor, with grassy hops, some malt backbone. Medium bodied. I drank this while making supper, so it sat a bit. And the ABV is apparent when it warms. I mean overall, this isn’t a style I drink much. If you like Pils, you might like this. Don’t get me wrong, no major flaws, but not really my thing.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice beer. Aroma was very hoppy. Fresh cut grass and hay. Pour was a beautiful clear light gold color with a thin off white film for a head. Taste was nice and hoppy. Strong bitterness with grain, light malt and grass. Nice bitter finish. Would’ve loved this beer to have more carbonation. That would’ve pulled this beer together perfectly. Never would guess this beer was 7% by the way. Hides the alcohol incredibly.

This is one of the better beers from Breckenridge. Light and crisp with a strong bitterness and potent amount of alcohol.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz. bottle. $3 at Binny’s in January. The pour is deceptively like any other pale lager: yellow fizz under a puffy head. But the yellow is a little deeper, and the bubbles have a little more trouble getting up the glass. A nice malty smell that does not betray any alcohol, and just a little hop. Taste has thick malts, and that’s where the alcohol starts to creep in. Thankfully, though, no alcohol burn, and no adjunct filler to up the amperage. A big puff of foam stays in the glass, daring me to drink around it. I just get some beer bitterness, no distinctive hops. But then, I did let this sit around for several months.
