3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours a crystal clear yellow color with barely any head. What head there is collects around the glass in tiny white bubbles. Slightly bready notes in the nose. Medium mouthfeel. Slightly sweet start. To me it almost has a plastic like taste, not sure what that is about but I don’t really drink lagers all that much anymore. Decently smooth. Ends rather clean and dry.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of frothy medium sized light ivory colored bubbles that were and left behind a uncarbonated hazy dark orange colored body and no lacing. The mild aroma was musty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The nice flavor contained notes of mild citrus hops and malt. Delicious and one I would certainly buy again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from Total Wine, JAX. Bright light gold pour typical of the style, with medium carbonation. Slightly grainy nose, with some sweet malts and more hops than I expected (a nice addition). Mouthfeel was a bit on the thin and bland side. And while it was an enjoyable quaffer, those hops in the nose were all but indetectable to taste, and the brew ended up a bit washed out and indistinctly malty.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden beer with a thin, white head. Aromas of corn mash, and some skunk funk aren’t very appealing. Tastes better than it smells though. Tastes of some barley, bread/cereal malts, and fresh dough. Finishes bittersweet with some mild floral hops. Very refreshing, and enjoyable enough. Not bad.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can thanks to a trade! Pours a clear gold with a that dissipates quickly and completely. Aroma has a good amount of sweet grains with a bit of a sweet bread note. Flavor is quite sweet as well with sweet notes of bread and grains with just a hint of light fruits. Too sweet for me.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can from trade with Tricyclist. Pours about as light a golden color as any beer I’ve seen, with low head, and light, lager aroma. Taste is very traditional German lager with crisp, clean, sightly grainy malt being the main feature with this. There are minor flavor notes of lemon, and just the right amount of hop bitterness to balance this out. This is a pretty decent lager; easy to drink, and a great summer brew. Glad I have two. Thanks, Matthew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from trade with OmegaX. Pours a slightly cloudy pale yellow color with a small head. Aroma is very grainy but there are nice lemon and grassy scents too. Taste is very grainy and bready too. There’s a slightly sweet fruitiness and a touch of bitterness too that helps to bring everything together. Highly drinkable lager. Crisp finish with a little spiciness. Great helles lager.
