3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a translucent amber with an average light tan fluffy head. Aroma was a nice floral and citrus hop with a caramel malt balance. Flavor was malty with a light hop mix. Flavor was solid but a step down from the aroma. A very solid lager though.

Pours a clear amber color with a white head. Aroma is a bit malty with some fruit. Taste is smooth, a bit hoppy and dry on the finish. A very solid lager.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a golden amber color and very clean and clear. Nice creamy white head that dissipated slowly. Ring, with wonderful lace that left the surface covered in a thin layer of foam the whole way down to the bottom. Clean bitter hop taste to start, fading into sweet fruity flavors - such as peach - then finishing with roasted malt flavors. Dry, clean finish. Nice medium body. Balanced. Pleasant carbonation that makes it refreshing. A very solid lager. Definitely not the best lager around, but my favorite so far - taking into consideration value and quality.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from the botte at The Railway in Putney (London), golden amber with a large rocky head. quite a bit of carbonation. A fruity aroma of apples and peaches. Fruit again in the flavour - definitely peaches. The carbonations works well, a dryish aftertaste. I don’t typically favour a lager, but this must be one of the best, I see why it is so highly rated.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The aroma is a pleasent combination of fruit and malt undertones. It is a rich amber color with a frothy beige head. The head is fully lasting and the lacing is considerable. Initially there is a burst of hop flavor with a caramel malt taste coming through. The finish is dry a bitter.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
i can’t believe i haven’t rated this and i picked this up in okinawa of all places / it’s a decent brew; i like it / maple brown body, slightly hazy, tiny beads of bubbles stream upward, soft light tan head, little to no lacing; smooth, slightly prickly; slight pine and floral notes, toastiness, lime tartness with a slightly sweet and juicy aftertaste; not bad, not bad...
