4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2008 excellent beer. I had it out of a bottle in Florida and was impressed by how well it poured and its overall light brown appearance. The flavor is strong yet smooth and has a great aftertaste. I would reccomend in a bar setting, especially during the evening.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
One of my favorites. This is for me was the epihany of lagers. I remember when I was 19 first tasting this and saying, "wow!" Really enjoyable, truly a everyday beer - great with many foods....simply put -> buy a case and never be disappointed.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle: Pours an amber gold wtih a thin off white head that quickly diminishes. Fruity aroma has hints of floral and a mild hop character. Malty flavor has hints of citrus, dry fruits with a touch of caramel. Finishes well with no lingering aftertaste like other lagers. A good everyday beer to keep in the fridge.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a honey to amber colur with a large white frothy white head. Aroma is HOPPY, citrus hops, floral hops with an outline bread and caramel malts. Initial taste is bready malts with an outpowering bitter citrus hops. Bitter hops linger on the palate with a mix of spices and other dark fruits. Good lacing of the glass with a decent head retention. Active carbonation that was perfectly matched.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a ruby color, with a mild malty aroma. With a hint of hops and soap smell. Above average overall, not a big lager fan, one of the better lagers I’ve had though. Worth a try.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is a spicy, flowery scent at first, a bready malt characteristic , and a smokey roasted nut note on top of it all. Appearance is a semi-translucent reddish/amber color with a medium sized tan head that diminishes into a soapy tan film. Taste is nice malt overtones, with a bit of really bready overtone, a nice medium to robust lager that is really exciting my taste buds. Palate is lightly bitter with a lingering bitterness that fades over time. Overall, A darn good lager in my opinion. Cheers!!
