3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at Johnnie Fox’s. Pours a cloudy amber into the pint glass, large white head that stays around for awhile, medium lacing. Aroma of freshly mowed hay, popcorn, black pepper. Taste is same as the aroma with a fat lager mouthfeel, short finish with some hop bitterness. Nice but middle of the road.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bread, hay, resin, floral, grass make up the initial aroma. The colour is a nice, clear gold with the head being a very clear white. A nice foamy head. The taste has light sweetness, lightly bitter, lightly sour and crisp.
A very nice and clean lager. Lager like lager should be. I’m not a lager fan but like this.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Platinum blonde with loose white froth.
Dead nose except for a distressing bit of soil.
Faint wheat cracker, a dirty mulch hit and stale woody hops.
Sour leaf finish and overtoasted bitter finish.
Light edging towards medium, too much stick, no snap.
Outright bad, possibly off. Too many "big" lager flavors jammed in that don’t fly. No hops and no crispness. They need to start over when they get their own brewery.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear pale straw gold, a frothy white head which doesnt last. Fresh hay aroma, with some grass and some doughy yeast. Quite dry on the palette, fresh and crisp with some more straw/hay in the flavour. Hint of lemon zest in there too. Decent body for a premium lager. Some hoppy bitterness in the finish. Quite flavoursome, not too bad.
