3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at brewery: Slightly hazy pale golden color with a medium white head that sticks with a good amount of lacing. The aroma is subtle overall, but shows scents of floral hops, grains, and yeast. It’s slightly sweet overall, but again we’re talking subtle here. The taste is quite crisp from start to finish. There’s notes of mild yeast, grains, sweet pilsner malt, biscuit, and floral/spicy hops. Light bodied, medium-lively forced carbonation, very crisp.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draught at the brewery, 4/13/05. Hazy white-gold color, but still quite bright and pleasant looking. Large white head is slowly dissipating to cover, with plenty of lace. Smells of crisp yeast, fresh, floral hops and honey, with a hint of earthiness. Flavor, from the start, integrates the crisp lager yeast, pilsener malt and rustic hops well, with no wateriness and a good medium body. A touch of graininess on the end, mild astringency, but overall a true, if somewhat light, flavor. Some notes of saaz perhaps, with a touch of oranges. Mouthfeel is bubbly and sharp at times, but nothing out of style. I really enjoyed this one, yet it is such a challenging style to brew and even a well-made, enjoyable brew like this does not begin to measure up to the better examples of this style, IMHO.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
3 oz sample. Fruity phenolic sour aroma with hints of grass. Smell is just...off. Horrificially sweet and candy-like to start. Mild hoppiness in the finish with hints of licorice. Orange citrus notes are also sprinkled in there. This was transparent blonde color with small which head and very cloying.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at the brewery: This pours a golden color with a big white head. There were some notes of beer in the aroma. Maybe some citrus in there also. The taste was pretty typical of a Macro for the masses. I’m sure that they sell alot, but not to me. A slight hint of butteryness in the aftertaste.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A perfumy, lightly chemical lager aroma with light orange and talcum powder notes. Pale yellow and clear. Fairly sweet, not very edgy, and somewhat starchy (as I found many of their brews.) A bit of fruity hopping. Finish starts to build after a while.
