3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
8th June 2014
Hazy amber beer, little white head. Palate is smooth and dry with light fine carbonation. Smooth light malt, dry. Touch of tangy fruits and then sweet floral candy. Light dry minerally finish. Different!

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at Churchkey. Yet another beer to capitol-ize off the Japanese gift to the District. Hazy red color, large bubble white edge head. Aroma of subtle cherry and lemon. Taste is bitter and sour cherry juice. Not a good combination. Lagers and fruit generally don’t mix.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle, purchased today from Perfect Pour. Shared with family during a seafood dinner in MD. Bottling date is kind of illegible, but it appears to read 03/17/14. Mostly clear orange amber color. Thin off-white head. Thin ring of white head. Dots of lace. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Metallic, bready malt. Some metallic. Lager base is unimpressive. Light cherry note is not bad, though. Family seems to love this. Moderate sweet, kind of tangy taste. Decent, kind of refreshing fruit lager. Not terribly out of balance.

Draft. Pours amber red with an off white head. Grainy malty base with a hint of fruity sweetness. The flavor has a light cherry sweetness, grainy malts, and a light floral bitterness. Actually quite drinkable, nothing special though.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Bit of an orange hue on this otherwise amber beer. Average to normal head. Nice, inviting orchard-based aroma, and indeed this drinks with a decent fruity character, well blended into an otherwise fairly ordinary lagery beer. Not bad. (#5199, 8/15/2013)
