3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
It had an interesting hazy appearance with lively visible carbonation and a deep or old gold color. The head builds up big, thick and foamy. It has a light creamy tan color with some speckles of brown yeast sediment from the bottle. The aroma has hints of floral and earthy hops and yeast. The flavor has pleasant light bready malt presence with an earthy yeast character. Also there is a slightly astringent hint of green apple and mild hops that adds a nice balance of bitterness. The hop flavor fades off nicely into the semi-dry finish. Its carbonation is good and lively with a slick easy drinking texture and light to medium body

12oz bottle from Wegman’s, Buffalo, NY. A golden amber pour with the fainest possible ring of white head; malty aroma; malty taste; with a sourness to finish. Very uninspiring stuff.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Transfer from BA review on 4-11-12 -
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a deep golden color with a medium white head of large carbonation bubbles. The head faded over time to give very little lacing.
Smell – Sweet caramel is the most potent and is mixed with a bit of corn aroma.
Taste – The taste matched the smell quite well. There is a caramel taste mixed with a corn and bready malt backbone. The flavor is quite one-dimensional and remains relatively consistent throughout the taste.
Mouthfeel – Very standard lager mouthfeel. A bit below average in terms of body with a slightly higher then normal carbonation level.
Overall –A very standard lager.

12 oz bottle. Nice head and golden, somewhat cloudy appearance. Tastes a little flat, almost metallic. The longer I drink it, the less I like it. Definitely not reaching for a second.

A hint darker than medium gold, with a thin white head. Not much in the nose. The bitterness, while not extreme, stands out more than anything else. A little bit of toast and malt aromas and a little hop citrus. Crisp, but not necessarily watery.

A nice clean lager from Flying Bison. Mild but pleasant flavor, without being overbearing. A notch above the mass market American lagers

Tasty lager. Not much in the nose but a nice malty flavor and not too sweet for the bitterness in the finish.

1st sample at the brewery yesterday. it is pale golden with large head.(their taps were causing all pours to be foamy) Aroma is pale malt, slight hopcitrus and honey. The flavor is pale malty, slighty crisp, with finishing hops and some citrus. Average

Bottle. Rich gold appearance. Typical hops/malt lager aroma profile, but with a surprising berryfruit accent. Both refreshing and rich flavoured, with a pleasant gritty mouthfeel and evident quality ingredients. Well-balanced hops and malt flavour with a spoonful of strawberry on top. A quality lager.

Huh...I could’ve sworn that I drank and rated this just a few weeks ago. I had it on tap at Colter Bay in Buffalo, NY. Regardless, this was a bottle. Poured a clear gold, light bubbling...nice little islands on the head. Smells of toffee, banana bread. Taste is similar, really thin mouthfeel, easy to drink.
