2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from wine warehouse Charlottesville. Pours dark golden with a quarter inch of white foam which leaves a slight amount of lacing. Not much on the nose except for a faint malt smell. Fairly thin on the tongue witha bit of a citrus thing on the finish. Not as crisp and clean or as flavorful as I’d hoped.

On tap for growler fills at Half Time. Pours a clear gold with a medium to thick white head. Sweet corn and grain on the nose. Weird grain. Strange, almost chalky bitterness. Sweet and grainy on the finish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
It’s got the slightly sweet maltiness of a lot of lagers, but is fairly easy to drink. Pours cloudy with no head. OK, but nothing remarkable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From notes: Poured hazy straw color with a small, thin white head that was gone quickly. Aroma was light, with grassy and yeasty notes. Body is a touch on the thin side. Flavor was very light. Grassy, with a touch of yeast and maybe a touch of citrus.

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
