3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from a bottle into a pilsner glass. Color was caramel amber. Maybe an inch of head. Nice amount of lacing on the top.
Lots of film on the sides of the glass.
Smelled of toasty malts. I want to say citrus hops in there, too, but that might have been wishful thinking.
Tasted of creamy roasty malts.
Medium-to-full body. Creamy texture. Lively (moderate) carbonation. Smooth finish. Filled me up a bit too much for my liking.
A pretty good beer all-around and I really tried to downgrade it for some reason. Give it a try.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark amber with a large head.
Nose shows toffee, caramel, bready malt and faint citrus.
Similarly malty flavours, more caramel, bready malt, cardboard and soft toffee. Some spicy and piny hops are also present. Finishes with a sharp, slightly metallic bitterness.
Carbonation could be a little lower.

Tawny in color, with a nice white head. Solid hop aroma, very earthy. Crisp malt smell, very fresh draught. Smooth, nice bit and a classic Vienna style lager.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy light amber with a small off white head that leaves a little lacing.
The aroma is sweet toasted caramel and toffee malts.
The flavor is sweet toffee and caramel malts with a grassy bitter finish. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation and a syrupy sweet texture.
Overall, I didn’t care for it too much. Reminded me of an amped up Dos Equis.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma of malts and spice. Pours amber with a decent head. Tastes of malts, yeast and not much else. Mouthfeel is kind of harsh without being alcoholic. Meh.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
cool label led me to give this beer a shot. Pours a yellowish brown with a white head that laces nicely. Didn’t knock my socks of but is very session-able and the hops and malts are well balanced and compliment each other nicely.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear amber with a thin white head. Smells a bit like fresh corn tortillas, fresh baked biscuits, and maybe a bit of grassy hops. Taste was crisp and biscuity with rye, toast, and more rye, more tortillas...not my thing. But a good lager with a lot of flavor.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Served at 14.5c/57.9f. It’s a rather boring gold body with a semi-solid head, but you wouldn’t write home about it. Soft malt aroma of a bad cheap lager. Flavour is a mix of malts and a bit of barley and caramel; okay I suppose. Dry finish. Not a bad lager, but far from a good lager.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at World of Beer. Pours a clear copper amber color with a very small white head. Zero lacing. Fairly malty aroma with some toffee and citrus hop notes. Nice flavor with just a hint of bitterness in the finish.
