3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
So swamped by old notes it’s not funny. Here’s the beer I tasted in April at Cellar Door. Nice golden pils color, looks a little hazy with some thick but dwindling foam. Slightly grainy, sourish smell, perhaps. But taste is just on target for a light beer style. Slightly baked biscuit malt with a note of honey. German hops are quite sharp and peppery. Despite the light abv, a full shaker is pretty substantial. No watered-down megabrew this. I keep comparing it to a pils, but it only lacks the Czech hard water profile to make an examplar.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle. Honey gold with a big almost white head. A Euro hop aroma is light. The flavor is gently hopped with light bitterness. Soft spice and sulfur. Grain is just as light. Honey, bread, and, cereal hops add sweetness. This is on the dry side but finishes quite sweet.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours mostly clear gold with a white head. The aroma has lightly toasted malt, spicy hops and more of a richness than most pils. It has a medium body with lighter carbonation. The taste has spicy herbal hops, toasty malt and rounded lager aspect. Good.

Draft at source. Nose is clean and neutral. Sweet malt character without any off flavors or sulfur. Super fucken clean lager. Mild hop pepper but that’s about it. Very clean.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12/28/14. 12oz bottle from the Milan Hy Vee. Lightly hazed orange pour with a fluffy off-white head that cuts but laces fairly well. Bready aroma, faintly floral, mild lemon peel... shockingly mild and inoffensive compared to the other brews I’ve had from them. Muted bready flavor, muddy, doughy, a touch of apple, cream corn, lingers almost tart in a way, green apple or lemon juice in a way. This brewery has issues.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a light orangish color with a nice white head. Aroma of bready and pils malts, herbal and grassy german hops. Flavor is nice, bready, fairly dry with a medium amount of bitterness. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Finishes with more apparent hop bitterness. This is a pretty nice lager.
