2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can’t comment too much on the color because I had this out of the bottle (boo hiss, I know). There are nice caramel flavors that go well with the malty flavors present here. While this isn’t what I’d long for, I could see this being a very nice beer to have while grilling outside on a summer day. Nothing special, but not bad at all, either.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours an orange amber with a thin white head and malty aroma. Taste is of toasty malt, grain, and metallic, pretty simple and lacking anything special in the flavor. Nothing great with this brew

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a rusty orange color without an appreciable head. Mild malty nose. Absolutely no taste, very metallic... only tasting this nasty beer because I received it through a beer club. Not for me. Quaff Score 2 / 10

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at the Ping Pong, Foosball, and Great Beer tasting on 03/03/2012. Pours a slightly hazy yellow-amber color with a medium white head that evaporates steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of fruit and caramel malt. Light body with flavors of toasted malt, caramel and ripe fruit. The finish is sweet and malty with a slightly hoppy aftertaste. Pretty average overall.

Bottle shared by a friend. Pours clear amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt and earthy hops. Grainy malt flavor with a bit of fruit.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served from a 12oz bottle from Flying Noodle beer of the month club. The appearance is a pale copper with a chill haze. The nose is fresh barley and pale malts. The flavors follow suite. The barley has a nice rawness to it. Nice toasty almost caramel flavors that develop into a hard candy with some butterscotch tones. Well done lager.

pale lagers are not my thing, but this was better than most. noticeble difference in this to macros, more emphasis on the bready malts, just enough hops to balance it out in the end. not bad.

bottle: this is what a premium lager should be like, IMO. IMpressive looking pour, clear dark red with a pillowy white head. Nose is cracked grain and creamed corn. Sweet toffee and thick malts with hint of skunk on the finish, a touch of bitterness and burnt sugar

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I haven’t called a premium lager impressive yet, but this one truly is. Nice malty aroma with that tell-tale lager smell in the back. Pour was a beautiful clear amber with a one finger off white head. Flavor was big and full (especially for such a low ABV beer). Toasted malt filled the mouth with a slight biscuit and caramel flavor. Just a slight hoppiness in the aftertaste. Not bitter, just balancing. Nice beer!
