3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma has a hint of butterscotch and hops, but not much else. Somewhat dark lager with a good head. A lot of citrus hop taste, but itís a good match to the malt level. Decent mouthfeel, but lacks a good finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy amber, nice apperance. Aroma is pretty hoppy and has some caramel in there as well. Definately hoppy with a fairly good balance of sweet malts. The finish is kind of gritty and not to my liking. Not a bad lager though.

Canít believe my little local Grocer stocks this. Lager purest might not approve, cause it tastes like an IPA to me. Very hoppy. burnt toast and caramel corn. Supersize frothy blond head. Best lager.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle - Pours light amber with a substantial white head. It has an aroma of sweet malt and some light, citrus hops. The flavor is hoppier than I expected with crisp, moderately strong bitterness balanced fairly well by the caramel malts. Itís a medium bodied beer that finishes with some good bitterness. Itís available at World Market around here.

I love the packaging. Extra points for kick ass graphics! Pours amber with copper highlights. Quickly disappearing white head. Aroma of grain, lightly roasted malt, grass with a hint of sweetness. Fairly crisp on the palate with a good amount of crisp malt and grassy hops to finish it off. Medium bodied. Very crisp and refreshing. Nice!

Coppery red with a small tan head. Aroma of dry grains, sweet malt and a hint of bitterness. Flavor of grain and sweet malt with an herbal bitterness in the finish. Nice mouthfeel and not too strong on the carbonation. Not bad at all.
