2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle... Clear, straw-colored lager with a small, fizzy, white head. Good retention. Citrusy aroma with notes of lemon peel and a whisper of chicken broth. Malty, sweet flavor up front followed by very litght bitterness from modest hopping. Lemon, tea and light grapefruit. Medium-bodied and fizzy. Short, crisp, clean finish.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Diminishing white head topples a hazy light gold dye. Unassertive pils malt requests at graininess to compensate its lack of honeyish and bready substance. Slightly sulfury nature boosts the soapy feel. Light bodied, biting carbonation, rather tart and citric nature that does not please me much, but gently floral aftertaste. Very average ultimately.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
The beer pours a brilliantly clear, straw-gold color that sits beneath a frothy pale cream colored head that is an ample 2.5 fingers thick in my small tulip glass. The aroma is fairly clean with some spicy herbal notes, a bit of lemon and a clean, sweet grainy maltiness. For a pale lager the aroma is pretty nice, makes it seem refreshing and inviting to drink on a warm summer afternoon. The beer is quite crisp, with an astringent herbal hoppiness that moves to a nice bitterness as the beer passes through my mouth. This beer is quite refreshing; this would be nice on a hot summer’s day. It is certainly a big step up from your standard BMC; I really like the spicy, lemon tinted, herbal hop notes in this beer. The key to this beer is to drink it pretty cold, I can’t see this tasting nearly as well if I allowed it to warm up to even ale temperatures, as is it is a good rendition of the style.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear pale golden with a medium white head. Aroma of light grain and a hint of lemon. For a crappy lager, this actually has a little flavor to it; notes of grain, grass, lemon with some caramel and light hop bitterness making an appearance at the end. Light/medium body with a smooth texture and lively carbonation. I’m actually pleased with this beer because I was expecting something god awful and it turned out to be not that bad.

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Poured golden with a small off-white head. Aroma of stale corn and mega skunk. The flavor is stomach-churningly skunky, with some corn and hop notes. Taste like it was brewed with sweatsocks. This beer is crappy enough to deserve to be marketed worldwide in cases of thirty and bought by the millions.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle courtesy of Duane. Bright gold body. The aroma is cooked carrots and some fresh apples. There is a hint of celery salt. The taste has fresh green beans and some spicy black pepper in the finish. There is also a bite of grass. A nice rendition of the style.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUN 26, 2005 At NJ Craft Brew Fest 2005: A good lager that stands above most other examples. Very easy to drink with no aftertaste. This would be a good session beer for craft lovers that are just starting out.
