3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz Bottle via Arctic Liquors Beer of The Month Club. Pours a semi clear amber with a small white head. Aroma is subtle-a bit of toasted grain, some vanilla, and lager yeast. While I am not a fan of the style, this is one of the best i have tasted. It starts with some vanilla, toffee, toasted grains and there is even some fruity esters underneath, some apricot and melon. Light/medium body. Low/moderate carbonation. Very tastey and refreshing. A high quality craft beer that i could easily drink several of.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I am beginning to think to myself as I look at their offerings and say, why did I drive all the way out here again? Reddish auburn coloring with a small fizzy white head. Lots of honey and caramel in the nose, but the palate is quite light in body, with a flavor that matches the nose to a t. Light, with some crisp acidity, that gives the after palate a nice little bite. An interesting beer, but not something to write home about.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
An amber lager with a delightful blend of vanilla and honey to make it shockingly more pleasant than the average beverage labeled as a lager.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Had this at the brewery. Beer poured a clear, light-amber color with a small, fizzy, off-white, mostly diminishing head that left behind nice lacing. The aroma was fair: lightly malty with notes of roasted grain and caramel, lightly hoppy with a note of pine and lighty dressed up with miscellaneous notes of vanilla and honey. The flavor was lightly sweet with a trace of bitterness that had an average-length, lightly bitter finish. The body was light-to-medium, the texture was watery and the carbonation was fizzy. There was also a trace of alcohol at the end. Not a very engaging brew.
