2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear pale gold with an average white chunky head. Aroma of grain, malt and floral hops. Not much bitterness. Not your typical lager.

light golden color, minimal white head. aroma of cereal and wet paper sack. flavor had more of a nice hop bite than the aroma would have indicated. hops even lingered through the finish. not bad at all for the style!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rather good aroma for a pale lager, bready and slightly sweet. It has a rather simple but effective pale lager taste to it, it has a light bitterness to it, the label doesn’t lie. Pretty good pale lager.

Clear gold pour. At first i thought this kinda smelled like shit, then I realized with some help from Walter that it actually smelled like STALE shit. Tasted not much different. Why bother lager should be the name. I just dont get it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle received as a gift at RBWG -- thanks! Pours a filtered golden color with a fleeting white head. Smells of potassium and mint leaves -- odd. Nice malt backbone in the flavor with notes of salt and waxy grapefruit rind from the hops. Not bad at all.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 ounce bottle - $5.75 at Taco Mac in Canton, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a clear, golden body, a bit stingy on the head size, with only a slim, white head that fades quickly.
Smell: Cereal-scented malts, grains soaking in tepid water, and the meagerest hints of florals and citrus.
Taste: A sweet cereal maltiness greets the tongue, followed by a small hint of crackling graininess. Lightly floral, lightly spicy with a minor touch of bitterness. Smallest trace of citrus lurking in there as well. Sweetish, ever so slightly crisp finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: It’s drinkable, it’s decent, easy on the flavor, but goes down easy, too.

4.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
12oz bottle. Pours straw yellow, decent white head. As expected. Welcoming aroma of bread and grassy hops. Amazing flavor! Malt body puts me back in my seat. Full of bread and malts. Perfect malt character, perfectly lagered. Three sips and the pint was gone! Amazing. I loved this Lager tremendously.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
What an incredibly Lager. I wasn’t expecting this at all. It has an out-of-this-world hop aroma almost akin to a Pale Ale. I love it. It is creamy and has a wonderful body, not too light or crisp as some Lagers get. It’s pale in color, like a bright straw yellow with white head. Super easy drinking but very flavorful at the same time. Might be my new favorite.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale golden colour. The nose is lightly grassy with a touch of pale malt character. Very fresh-smelling with a little bit of wheaty spice as well. Clean yeast. No sulphur but a nice fresh character. Solid lawnmower beer.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft at Southwind Cafe Mathews VA: Weak corn aroma. Clear amber, medium light yellow, some glass adherence. Grainy with lemon zest at midpalate. Better than the macros, but still rather weak.
