2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tried this at a bar last night not realizing it where it came from. It has light flowery grain aroma, with the flavor of stewed grains. Pretty dry - the feel is under fermented as opposed to attenuated though. More filling and full bodied than most lagers, premium or otherwise. Will have to try it under better circumstances.

Bottle. Golden with white head. Smells floral, slightly fruity. Tastes like honey, wheat, really easy to drink-sessionable. Not too shabby for Coors! Very decent.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
The best beer to come out BMC...maybe ever. Poured bottle into pilsner glass. Rich golden color with lasting white head. Faint nose of grain and flowery hops...not enough. Sweet rustic grain up front but finishes pretty dry. Good hop bitterness to balance out. Hop flavor is nice - a little herbal, a little fruity. Good and complex, but like nose, there could be just a little more. The beer has quite a bit of sulphur when cold. A good drinker and change of pace.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tap at some stupid bar in DC. Pours clear amber with minuscule white foam. No lace. Richer toffee malt nose with no detergent thankfully. Hints of diacetyl. Sort of an English amber ale nose similar to Newcastle. Taste is thicker, muted honey and lots of toffee malt. Palate is fuller, very sweet, honey like thickness. Carbonation is a bit prickly. Havy sugar creates a slickness. Not too bad. Feels a tad oily. Hints of vegetal DMS/ frozen broccoli. Hints of metals and malt liquor trashy off character with artificial feeling bitterness. Off flavors probably blended out in macro fashion Much upgraded from seltzer water and soap though. But for the same price as SNPA, why bother?

(draught) pale gold with white head. Malt aroma and flavor. Really doesn’t have a bold hoppy flavor, but it’s a decent lager.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Head is initially small, frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing.
Body is light amber.
Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (caramel, grain, husks), lightly to moderately hoppy (apricot, flowers), with a light note of DMS.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly husky.
Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation.
Kinda husky and clunky and sugary, but no worse than the average brewpub lager. Drinkable, but why would you add money to this company’s coffers?

Pours deep gold into a shaker. White head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Caramel aromas. Sour grass and caramel front to back. Lasting sour earth finish.

On tap: pour is fairly clear dark golden, with a modest, white head in this glass. Florals, cereal, and lager yeast. The flavor profile is cereal grains, lightly sweet, mild adjunct, florals, caramel really. This is fairly nice actually

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a light copper color with a sudsy white head. Aroma is slightly sweet with lots of grains and some caramel. Taste has an interesting earthy flavor with grains and some sweet malts. Some cheesy flavors too with some cardboard. Overall it’s not bad, but a little unusual.
