2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Poured clear, bright golden with a stark white head. The aroma picked up dull bready notes and hay with not a lot more coming through. The flavor found light bready notes, wet grains, and honey at the core.. mild herbal bitterness around.. finished prickly with more residual sweetness than bitterness. Light-bodied with rolling carbonation on the palate.. drinkable, but there wasn’t a whole lot to get excited about.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear bright golden with a full rocky white head that diminishes significantly, but stays around. Some lace. Aroma is corn grits and a little floral hop. Clean and crisp, the taste is sweet pale malt, , breadiness, some corn and an appropriate amount of hop bitterness. Not bad at all.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a pale gold with a high, large-grained, white head that leaves lace. The nose is malty -- it’s what I think of as ’smells like beer’, but the beer my dad used to drink instead of the modern macrobrew. Very hoppy on the tongue, with some wheaty notes on the midpalate; finishes clean and dry. Quite good for what it is -- I’d drink this while using heavy lawn equipment.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sampled at an esbls. From Rob. Clear golden. Not much head to mention. Light skunk honey nose. Not offensive but too close to it. Mhoney flavor. Very soft sulphur hops and even softer fruit. A bitter after taste.

UPDATED: AUG 8, 2013 Aroma is grainy, light citrus and beery. The flavor is similar to the aroma along with a mild sweetness. Not great but decent enough.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle and rated on 3-25-2012. Pours a small smooth white head that was mostly lasting, fair amount of lacing, fast-rising carbonation, transparent body, and a yellow hue. The Aroma is malty, sweet, grassy, mildly hoppy, and semi-crisp. The Flavor is malty, mildly hoppy and a semi-dry finish. The Mouthfeel is lightly tingly and semi-oily and this is medium bodied Pilsener. Overall, this beer is easy to drink so I would put it in the Session category, but it lacks character.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Won’t waste words on the appearance - looks like a pilsner. Crisp and refreshing, hoppy - floral and maybe a bit citrusy. Evenly balanced and well rounded - medium amounts of sweet, bitter, and sour, and moderately malty. Nothing mind-blowing, but it’s a nice, easy-drinking beer. I wouldn’t say no to another six.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle from Pick’s poured into a shaker. Pours a clear pale yellow with a small bit of head that disappears quickly. Aroma of light citrus hops and a little biscuit malt. Taste is very light bitter. Small citrus hops. Little bit of a lime taste. Light bodied and thin textured. Fizzy carbonation and not much of a finish. Overall, it’s ok. Nothing really special. I’m still yet to find a Dundee beer that really stands out. If nothing else, it’s a good intro to craft for BMC drinkers.
