Gold, thin white head. Musty, earthy aroma. Surprisingly bitter up front - kind of woodsy - followed bu a definative cereal flavor. Finishes clean. Nicely drinkable with enough bitterness to keep it interesting.

thanks to jcwattsrugger for this one. Aroma of corn dominates but has hints of maltiness in there as well. Pours a golden clear. Flavor is cornish as well with some an almost straw or hay flavor. Medium palate for the style and a tad on the foamy side. Not the best PL I’ve had but not the worst. In my book it is very drinkable if your gonna drink a PL.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
75th rating for this brew, and my personal 25th from Jersey. I’m beginning to like this brewery. Bottle. Sweet floral hops nose, malty. Pale, pale golden pour with a soapy off-beige head. Taste is lightly sweet, touch of grass and honeyed bread, citrus and light hops in the bg, but there’s a slight (non-grainy) )off-note. Low bitterness. Crisp body but not harsh, light but not too watery. Nice soft malts. Clean and gentle, refreshing and harmless; yes indeed one of the East Coast’s best lagers - which is actually saying something!

Bottle courtesy of Duane. Bright gold body. The aroma is cooked carrots and some fresh apples. There is a hint of celery salt. The taste has fresh green beans and some spicy black pepper in the finish. There is also a bite of grass. A nice rendition of the style.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Brewer said this was brewed in the helles style. Pale gold with small head and moderate carbonation. Aroma is initially much more hoppy than a traditional pale lager or helles. Slightly floral and earthy hops, but then a firm toasted malt aroma is noticed. Flavor is balanced pretty well between hops and light malts. Slightly toasty, sweet, light caramel, and bready pils malt. Moderate crisp and bitter finish.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized tan colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a transparent and an excellent lacing. The mild aroma was dough lagerish and fruity. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of malt and was very typical. An OK brew just nothing special.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly pale golden coloured body with a medium sized dense white head. Aroma of cardboard, light skunks, some fresh hops and a stale lemon scent. Light-bodied; Sharp taste of fresh hops along with some nice pale malt. Aftertaste showcases the bitter hops along with a faint sweetness, mainly from the citrus. Overall, a nice lager that would be great in the summertime, but I’m sampling this thing near the beginning of Winter. Good to try if you can find it! I sampled this 12 ounce bottle purchased at Chevy Chase Wine & Liquors in Washington, D.C. on 28-November-2005.

12oz bottle from jcwattsrugger. Pours clear gold with a white head. Nose is slight malt, sweetness, and some more sweetness with a hop or two. Flavor is similar with sweet, malt, and a few hops. Clean finish, not a lot of yeastiness. Good starter, very sessionable.
