3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle purchased from the brewery. No freshness or ABV markings. Bronze/light gold color-very little head. Nose is honey, metallic, hay. Taste is light grass, a bit alcoholic (!), malt flavors are subdued and very little hop aroma. Nice body for a lager and easily quaffed. Well done-wish I had a few more of these.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasting at CBF. Clear golden, medium white head. Aroma of light malts and lighter floral hops. Flavor is smooth and easy, very drinkable but still has pretty good flavor. A fairly hoppy lager with a satisfying bitter finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Friend brought this back from their trip to Colorado. Of the 3 dam beers they brought back, this was the worst. Poured a golden color with a smaller white head that went rather quick. Aroma was sweet malts, corn and metallic flavors. Very thin and watery body. Not a whole lot to this one. Some caramel flavor in the finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at the brewery. Pour is amber with a fluffy white head and good lacing. Smell is nice spice, banana, bread, caramel, earth, and light hops. Taste is bread, malt, light caramel, a hint of banana, and spice. Mouthfeel is somewhat watery with medium carbonation. Very smooth and highly drinkable. Another pleasant surprise from Dillon.

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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Rating from 3/06. On tap @ DD. Amber color. Caramel, toffee aroma. Taste is caramelly, mild earthy hops, hops mostly for bittering. Not too bad for what it is, a light amber lager.

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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear orange-brown with a small fizzy head that quickly disappears.
The aroma is earthy malts and sweet caramel with a touch of spicy hops.
The flavor is rather bland. It has some sweet watery malts up front with a bit of a spicy lightly bitter finish. The flavors become more apparent as it warms. The mouthfeel is medium bodied but watery.
Overall, a nice, albeit run of the mill, beer.

Bottle at ACBF. Pours a dark golden color. Pretty dark and malty for a lager, but not particularly flavorful.
