Sampled at the brewery. Mclear holden. Not what I expected from a beer featuring this hop. Lemon and limes. Fruity. I looked for sulfury notes but was surprised to not find it. Really nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a faintly hazed gold with a thin white head. Big fruity hops up front, sweetness and melon and some dusty mustard greens. Medium bodied, grainy with a nice crispness and then more sweet melon hops come through. Nothing like what I was expecting, and very pleasantly surprised. Crisp bitterness on the finish, clean and easy drinking.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Called Saaz Monster now (like the old name better but maybe they had to change it.) On tap at Church Brew Works, Hard for a hop head like myself to look at a a list of 10 or so beers and the highest IBU is 30. this was pleasant, and couple folks who didn’t like hops appreciated this as it had more flavor than other offerings, or they didn’t lke the eeissen flavors. aromas of saaz-skunk, caramel & nutmeg, Solid yellow with modest white head. Fruity fkavor with toast & oak. crisp, clean finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Saaz Monster at 6%, 35 IBU. Filtered orange-copper color. Foamy white head. Rather straightforward classic lager, nice Saaz feel but nothing "monstrous". Not really on par with a good German example. A touch grainy. OK.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sold to me as "Saaz Monster" on tap. Sampler from the mixed flight of currently running brews. Overall this appeared and tasted to be weak. Definitely compromised on ingredients and body and taste. Why do so many brewpubs continue to cheat their customers with this hogwash?
