1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Fresh bottle. Pale yellow with initial white fizzy head. Gazzy overcarbonated, with metallic in aftertaste. The lagerish taste is overwhelmed by the process, much like a macro.

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.

An average score is 2.75, and this is an above average lager. Pours canary, with a good head. Aroma of malt and slight hops. Tastes malty, with some slight honey and citrus at the finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Courtesy of jcwattsrugger. Thanks John. Pours clear deep gold with white head. The aroma is solid for the style with ample amounts of floral and spice hop notes to go along with a malty sweet backbone. The taste has up front spicy, floral and lemon like hop bitterness that refreshes and gets your attention. It then smooths out and thins out to midway. As the finish approaches notes of sweet malts and touch of lightly roasted malts round things out. The hops persist into the after taste. If I were to have a refreshing lager on a hot day this would be a nice choice.

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.

2.9 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.

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.
