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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a light gold with virtually no head. Aroma is light but has hints of bready malt and citrus hops. The taste is grassy hops with a balanced bitterness and a touch of biscuit. Very light bodied but doesn’t taste watered down and is easy to drink. The carbonation brings out the hops nicely. At only 4% you could drink this all day...literally.

2.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear-amber with large gatherings. Very odd old lime lemon smell. Slides down the throat without indifference. Grassweed medicine? With as pure and fresh as it is our family loves this beer for what it is worth...a lot!

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma straight pale malt , toasted feel , malty base with light hop notes. Old traditional continental lager like.
Appearance amber gold with white top. Some lace is shown.
Flavor and Palate : Medium bodied, toasted malts behind. Generic malt feel with almost no hop presence in profile. That would be fine if malt was better (wet cloth issue). Average. Note – reminded me of many old school Russian pale lagers.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle as a trade bonus from michael-pollack- thanks again, Pollack! Pours a mostly clear golden color with a small white head. Aroma of sweet pale malts, straw, sugar, corn, grains, and grass. Flavor of pale malts, sugar, mineral notes, grains and corn, and grass. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a grassy, mineral mouthfeel. Not a whole lot to it, but certainly one of the better pale lagers I’ve had.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Half Time. Pours hazy gold with a foamy 2 finger white head. There’s a very light toffee note with a large amount of floral hop. Medium plus body with sharp, foamy carbonation. I’m getting a mild toffee flavor with a lot of floral hop. It’s lightly sweet and pretty bitter all at once. Finish seems grassy bitter. Drinks very well.
