3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Drank @ a bar while visiting DC a few weeks ago. On draught. Clear golden amber pour with a tiny head. Aroma was of grainy sweet malts with a small hop presence. Flavors were right on par with the aroma although there was an odd sourness in the finish, light bitterness. Decent hop flavors just a bit odd. One taste is enough for me.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Well on Wells in Chicago. Pours a medium glowing golden with a small white head. Aroma of pale malt, some sweet caramel, grainy and a touch of honey. Flavor is much of the same, a bit of honey, pale grain and slightly bland. A fairly strong metallic flavor I wasn’t big on. Finishing lightly bitter and a touch of grassy hops. Light to medium body and a fairly high carbonation. Interesting what they are going for, though could have been better still.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled on 9/16/2010 at the brewery. This Premium Lager pours a medium gold color. Small to medium sized white foamy head with decent retention. The aroma is cereal and grain, with a touch of hops. A medium bodied Lager. The malts are cereal and grain. The hops are floral and spicy. Nice carbonation. Very fresh tasting, well it was sampled at the brewery. Crisp and clean. Touch of lingering hops at the finish. Its still a massively filter lager, but its very drinkable. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Much more solid grain aroma then the other macros,like some of the better craft lager aromas,color a touch darker then your standard coors,flavor is noticable grain malts ,a definite bitterness of hopping in the finish,all grassy type hopping,flavors dont linger long,you really couldnt gulp this brew down because of its slighter fuller body,but those hops still make it thirst quenching. A well done surprise from a sample not to be resold bottle

4.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
I am not going to try and sound cool by rating the appearence or look. This is a damn good beer. It is not very strong in flavor compared to some other BS beers that people love. This is a good beer to drink any time. It is a lighter beer that is easy on the stomach. I love it but good luck trying to find it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at World of Beer. Poured clear, brighter golden with a well-retained white head. The aroma picked up sweet honey, caramel, and pale malty sugars with earth and fruity hop accents.. very fresh. The flavor found basically the same blend of sugars at the core, with light-moderate fruit and berry bitterness around.. finished with more adjuncty sugars and unidentified residual sharp stuff. Lighter-bodied with high carbonation on the palate.. somewhat clean feel, save for some of the adjuncts and sharpness.. OK finish.
