2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pretty decent summer lager, on tap at the Happy Gnome. Just a little better than a run of the mill lager but nothing special. Small white head, typical light amber color and a bitter finish. Decent carbonation.

Nice low hop aroma. Tasted like a flat domestic lager (Budweiser), although much smother. Easy to drink.

Bottle bought at GBBF and drunk at home. Clear gold lasting white head. It’s a half decent lemony citrusy lager. Good aroma, good mouthfeel, good lemon. Very drinkable. Good beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Malty eurolager aroma, lightly sweet. Clear, very pale. Ok label, standard US longneck. Crisp bittering, a bit of citrus pith, dry, slightly tangy. Long bitter finish, biscuity mouthfeel, though generally crisp. Just OK. ABC Liquors, Betton.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. Hazy orange-tan. Foamy, steady, glass lacing head. Bready, medium body. Spicy noble hop finish. A little more of an American feel than a German..bigger malts, bigger hop bills, and a less sublime lagering tones. Earthy, fruity character brings to mind English Ale as much as German Lager...maybe my palate is off. Either way, a nice enough session beer.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Somewhere between straw and copper. Bone white head. Aroma of pear, malt and a bit of corn. Not too far off a pale lager. Light noble hop spice. Flavor is slightly sweet malt, and that's about it. No hops or any complexity really. Maybe a touch of noble spice in the back. Crisp and spotless. He more I drink the more I feel the bitterness lingering on my palate. I would love the malt to be a bit dryer. Not bad for the style though.
