3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This beer has a lightly sweetish corn aroma to it, but it is backed by a solid maltiness as well. The taste is sweet, smooth an creamy. The finish then abruptly kicks in with a solid hit of bitterness that nicely balances the front of this beer. This is quite a good commercial example, it is sharp and biting yet smooth and creamy, with a hint of clean sweetness to it. This is quite enjoyable, and I wish there where more commercial example of this style out there.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Father’s Office, Santa Monica. Compared favorably with the Stillwater pre-Pro lager. Vibrant golden-orange pour with a lively, fluffy head and plenty of brimming carbonation. Nose was very inviting with plenty of bitter hops, a touch of must and tart fruit. Bracing flavors, quite sharp and grassy, just a bit of funk peeking out from the herbal deliciousness.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Hamilton’s. Pours golden with a thin white head. This is a very light beer in body. It has a certain sweetness. I can tell there’s lots of corn dextrose here. It’s sort of fun in a retro beer way.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft @ Father’s Office (Santa Monica). Pours a bright, effervescent yellow color; mixed-bubbled white head with great retention and gorgeous lacing; a beautiful pour. Very dry, crisp aroma showing herbal and grassy hop character; refreshing, light graininess; lovely crisp nose. Light-to-medium body: lots of crisp, toasty and bready malt character; juicy herbal and mineral bitterness; an absolutely lovely premium lager (evidently: pale lager); balanced, crisp, perfectly attenuated, pleasantly soft-seeming water: great stuff here. Awesome, and something that I’d love to see more of. Medium finish of toasty grains, hints of vanilla, and plenty of herbal / grassy bitterness; great ending to a wonderful surprise.
