2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Rated on 5-03-2013 (Can) When poured, this beer has a large very fizzy white head that mostly diminishes, pale yellow transparent body, slow rising carbonation, and no lacing. The aroma is bready, malt, crisp, hops, and spicy. The flavor is semi-sweet, bready, malt, and light spice. The mouthfeel is smooth and this is a light-medium bodied beer. This is a quaffable session beer.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lack of aroma (could be the glass) with a pale yellow color. Balanced malt and hops give way to a hop bite reminiscent of a Czech pilsner. Finishes clean.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice pour and aroma, light berry scent over lagery grains. Pours with a puffy white head and a clear rich gold. Light to medium bodied, lightly sparkling character, grainy flavour, not too light, refreshing.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from can into pint glass: Pours golden with a one finger white head. Aroma is corn, champagne, grass. Taste is more of the same with a nice sweetness to be expected with this beer, and a little bitter finish on the back end. Light body, medium carbonation, nice beer for it’s style.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: clear gold with two fingers of creamy, fizzy white head, decent lacing. Aroma: prominent aroma of sweet corn, light cracker, some grassy hops. Taste: sweet, corny and grainy, with a bit of earthy, grassy hops and just a hint of pepper. Finish: sweetness lasts a bit, and there’s a bit of minerality. Notes: This was not a bad beer, but I can’t help but compare it unfavorably to the Great Lakes Dortmunder Gold. Can from Knightly Spirits in Orlando, Florida.

Very nice for style. Pours golden blonde with OK head and lacing. Nice snap of German hops and good crisp barley. Nice, and a great lawnmower beer. Touch of bitterness. Can.
