3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Taster at the Blarney Stone’s Solstice Fest, Oak Forest. Clear golden lager color, a thin ring of foam in a much used plastic taster cup. Light malt smell with a note of yeast. Malt becomes pretty prominent in the taste. Definitely in the Dortmunder category. Then a little sweetness kicks in to remind us that it is a lager without the water profile of a pilsener. But yes, enjoyably malty.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap, poured into a shaker. The aroma is grainy with a biscuit and light citrus quality that fades to mostly caramel. The beer is crystal clear and straw colored with a very dense, micro-bubble head that’s a fluffy, kinda whipped-looking, white. A medium ring is retained with a wispy surface, and a dense, runny, sheet lace tries to form on the glass, but only a bit sticks. It’s a medium sweet and medium light bitter. There’s a spritzy quality, thanks to the foamy and zippy carbonation. The texture is thin and smooth with a light body. The easy drinking beer contains notes of cornmeal, grass, light citrus, and light caramel on the tongue, with a bread crust finish. There’s grass and or a light spice to the aftertaste with some bitter herb. It’s also lightly astringent.

12/28/14. 12oz bottle from the Milan Hy Vee. Hazed golden pour with a small khaki head. Green apples and ketchup in the aroma, a bit of caramel and maltiness. Same on the flavor, ketchup, bordering on acidity, green apples, malty. Blech.
