Clear golden with a white head. Malty, light fruits, and some grassy, hoppy notes int he aroma. Bubbly mouth. Flavor is much like the aroma. Really not much in the way of flavor, this one seems like Cricket Hill’s shot at BMC. Decent.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours clear, light gold. Light malt aroma, some cracker and caramel. Sweet flavor, with more caramel, biscuit and some nice floral, grassy bitters to finish. Light bodied with average carbonation. Nothing to complain about here.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Old BA rate - bottle)
Poured with a thinner pure white head; poor retention; clear yellowy macro gold color. Grassy hops; freshly mown lawn; earthy; biscuity dough; mineral ending aroma. Some malt sweetness; grassy hops show up in the taste as well; to be quite honest there’s not much going on here; macro inspired, but at least a little more tasty. Light; crisp carbonation; palate cleaner. Not bad at all actually; would take this over other US/Euro macros for a lawn mower brew. Overall, bland and uninteresting, but at least no off-flavors and decently drinkable when cold.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
20 oz mug on tap at Brickhouse in South Plainfield, NJ. Pours a light golden color typical of a pale lager, no real discernable aroma except for light yeastiness until much later in the drink when it becomes mildly hoppy. Taste is sweet with a little bit of bitterness as the drink wears on. Palate is smooth, finish is crisp for a pale lager. Overall decent pale lager, much better than Bud/Miller Light.

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2010 on tap at the brewery, pours a picture perfect darker yellow. bitter for a lager. Its been a while since i had a great lager. This one wasn’t one. Not bad for a session beer!

Was not expecting the bite of hops on this. A friend sipped it and said "bitter". I said they were crazy then tasted it myself. Almost like a pale ale/lager. Nice sweet cereal taste to it. Good carbonation. pours a gold/orange.

From the name I thought it would go well with some pizza & carbonara. Unfortunately it didn’t work out,
Too hoppy for me.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours yellow/gold, with a white head. Aroma is malt, corn, and hops. Flavor is hops and malt. Crisp and refreshing, with a medium body. This is a simple beer, but pretty good.

12oz. Smells like corn and cascade. The cascade aroma is crisp and not too fruity, that comes when you drink it. This beer is thicker then feels right, it has a nice balance of flavors but it’s not as easy drinking as the flavor would suggest. I should mention the stunning clarity, I bet you can see a penny at the bottom of a bucket filled with this beer, it’s beautiful to look at. Yay beer!
