2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Another day another bland lager. Golden pour, white head. Very malty nose with some hop notes. Flavor is bland and boring. NOTHING to distinguish itself from any other lager.

Bottle… Clear amber lager with a mid-sized, wispy, off-white head. Good retention. Toasty, biscuity, toffee and spicy hop aroma. Medium to full-bodied with intermediate carbonation. Like the nose, the flavor is biscuity and toasty with moderate, spicy, European hop bitterness. Lengthy, moderately bitter finish.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2007 Amber-gold with a light malty nose. Light earthiness with a touch of caramel and faint grassiness as well. Flavour is decently malty with light earthy hops. Moderately sweet up front, light graininess throught the middle with a touch of grassy hops on the back. I didn’t enjoy it all that much the first few times, but it’s grown on me lately... oh, yeah, and the label is beyond creepy.
