UPDATED: DEC 28, 2013 Bottle. Outstanding for the style - deep yellow pour with a small white head. Aroma and taste feature some grassy hops and a touch of sweetness - excellent alternative to BMC.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Savannah, Ga - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 12 oz can. Murky medium gold pour with a rocky white head. Wort-like aroma with some grainy notes. Flavor has some grainy notes, cereal like blandness, pretty plain lager but not bad tasting - does not have the adjunct notes that the big macros have. Smooth mouthfeel, overall, decent.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pale yellow color. No flavor, smell or characteristics really. Just a better choice of a session beer over a Macro

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle to glass mug. Pours a clear yellow with a moderate white head. Lots of effervescence, and a scent of lemon. Has a pretty bland mouthfeel / taste. Malty notes, and pretty bland. Not offensive...just....there.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Pours golden with a thick white head, a lot of lacing and carbonation. Aroma is of pale malt and grassy hops. Medium, crisp body. A good amount of herbal hops is balanced by biscuit malt on the palate. Finish is long, clean and hoppy. I did not expect much from this brew, but I actually enjoyed it.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 11/21/11
Aroma: The nose is mostly made up of floral, citrus, yeast, and grain notes
Appearance: Pours a clear golden-orange color with a foamy white head and heavy lace
Flavor: The taste is mid sweet up-front, transitioning into a later bitterness; aftertaste is quite off
Palate: The body is light, the mouthfeel is crisp and clean, and it ends with a lengthy, poor finish
This one was a basic, rather unexciting, attempt at a lager. I thought the components were pretty decent overall, but that finish really damages my opinion of the beer. It just doesn’t leave a good taste in your mouth, and, since it is your final impression, it doesn’t leave a good feeling about the beer. Still, that is only one component of the beer, and so I will try not to let it completely affect my opinion/score.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
The aroma is dusty and metallic with malt and hops. The appearance is golden with a small head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is typical for the style. Overall not a very good drink.
