3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear, amber appearance, under a slim, but sturdy speckled white head.
Creamy, malty nose, quite attractive...soft and flowery, pleasant esters from yeast (?)... I like it.
Taste: smooth, clean, crisp, malty. Light bodied, but nicely textured, good grit, tight balance, tidy hops meet copious malt. A streamlined beauty, full of flavor. Blend of fruit associations chimes in, some apple, melon, grape, mixed with grain.
Quite a classy lager, this one, damned good. Almost ale-like in itís display of flavors. Just goes to show what happens when a lager is done well!
Can be drunk without disappointment, and no end in sight for the taste. Very, very nice!

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is a decent beer, but not worth the price I paid. It has a light amber color, sweet aroma, and a light crisp taste. It has a sweet taste on the front of the tongue, a clean bite in the finish, and no aftertaste to speak of. Itís a decent beer, but nothing to write home about.

On tap, this is an all around good and easy to drink beer. Well balanced with a decent amount of hops, has a slight honey taste. Pretty good lager from a great brewery

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (from Tesco, BB Oct 06). Copper coloured. Slightly floral hops against firm maltiness with a slight toasted grain feel. The graininess wouldnt work well in some beers but is well integrated here. Dry and quaffable with refreshing hop finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a lager, but reminds me more of an ale or even a mild IPA. Pours to a golden copper color, with thin, diminishing cream-colored head, and okay lacing. Aroma is citrus fruit, and floral hoppiness. Taste follows along the citurs fruit, predominantly grapefruit, and some floral, rose petal. Finish is somewhat dry, slightly bitter, but long lasting. Iím impressed with this beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a goldish-amber color with a medium off-white head. Aroma is of floral hops, toasted and sweet malts, and caramel. Flavor is very much the same with a sweet malt and caramel finish that lingers. The flavor of the floral hops and the malts blend together very nicely. Not my style of beer but I do enjoy this brew.

tap. outside of madison square garden where the Celtics put a whooping on the highest paid, and worst team in the NBA. This beer represents the people of New York. I say it represents them well. It is revolting in just about every way. Iíll take a coors please. Do you guys remember when the Sox came back from 3 down?
