3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours polished pale yellow, mediocre head - I usually pour straight down to get what is there but this was not all that excited to be there - and mediocre lacing; the hype - bursting with hop-fueled taste? These guys brew Mayhem and Armageddon. Who do they think they are kidding? OK, not wild. Tart-ish and sem-dry; nose has hints of fruit and earth; medium body and slightly oily
Mayhem and Armageddon are hard acts to follow - especially in the IIPA starved desolation of the Long-ish White Cloud. But this is a decent Pale Lager. Iíd call it a good session beer - there are trains home and lots of taxis

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle. A clear, bright bronzed straw colour with a small, slowly disappearing white head. Green, slightly grassy and almost vegetal hop notes coupled with subtle grain and biscuity pale malts. Light to medium body and medium carbonation with a clean, low to medium intensity though moderately protracted finish. Solid lager with decent hop presence without being out of character for the style.

A nice enough brew (that is handily eclipsed by many of its Epic brethren).

The head is good, the body is blond. It smells sweet, hoppy, fruity,malty. The taste is hoparomatic, fruity, refreshing, bit alcoholic, bit bitter. Very nice for a Lager. 11/12/11/12/12/12

Brilliant clear pale straw color with snow white cap of foam. Nose very familiar and pleasant yeast/Co2 w/ slight fruit notes. Taste has a very well orchestrated yeast to toffee sweet to slight fruity finish. Smooth and decently crisp. Love this lager itís definitely a brew for the man that spends his days in brewery collecting yeast out of fermentation tanks. I say that cause while enjoying brew in kept bringing me back there and to appreciate the fruits of the labor...especially in hot summer day. Cheers Epic job well done!

A decent lager here. Nice malt hop aroma. Taste Is fruity, tangy with a mild toffee sweetness. Not crisp or refreshing, but full flavoured for a lager.

Bottle from mane liquor. Drunk from the stubby. Aromas of biscuit malts and subtle grapefruit/tropical hops. Pleasant light fruity smell. Taste is really easy going. Nice blend of caramel sweetness to go with the biscuit malts and light tropical fruit presence. Nice session beer!

I had the misfortune of picking up an aged bottle, I think. The mustiness and the muted hop character arenít in keeping with what Iíd expected from an Epic beer. Iíll have to give this one another shot in the near future.
