3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Part of the Shock & Awe Variety Pack - $16.99 at Bullock’s Wine & Spirits in Marietta, Georgia.
Appearance: Pours a light golden body with a slight haze to it and a sufficiently-sized, white head.
Smell: Softly toasted grains and hay, some pilsner-esque hints with a little edge of caramel that doesn’t come across for me in the taste. Lightly floral with some citrus akin to lemon zest with some pith taken.
Taste: Light hay-like character to the modest pils maltiness. Floral tones, minor lemon. Acceptably bitter. Minor toasty grains on the back half. Drying, gently bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium carbonation.
Overall: Thirst: quenched! A taking-it-easy, refreshing, relatively lower alcohol lager.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 Oz. Can. Poured golden, hazy with a large white head. Aroma is mostly yeast; you also get some fruit and hops hints, not much going on in this department pretty faint. Taste is also cereal (yeast) kind of hoppy; starts sweet and rolls into a light bitterness towards the end. Very Drinkable, goes down quick and easy, nice beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to taster. Looks solid; a transparent gold with fluffy white head. Smells and tastes doughy and hoppy with a nice snap that’s good on the palate. Better than I expected, and a solid example of the style.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle 0,33 L. A bit hayz yellow colour with big frothy, fully lasting, white head. There’s also very intensive carbonation going on. Mostly hoppy aroma of grapefruits, grass, herbs and some yeasty soapy and earthy notes, too. Taste is fruity sweet at the start, but it quickly turns into heavy bitter. Good, refreshing, summertime beer.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: Yeast aromas--cheese, perhaps--and hints of dry cereal. All very faint.
Appearance: Straw gold with a thin, white head.
Taste: Light sourness with hints of sweetness at the edges for balance.
Palate: Light body, thin texture, soft carbonation, long finish.
Overall: Meh...I’m really not blown away by this. It’s drinkable, and obviously some thought went into it, but I wouldn’t seek this one out again.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Világos, aranysárga színe van, habja vékony, buborékos, fehér és gyorsan búcsút int nekünk. Illata vizes szalmás, élesztős, zöld komlós, malátás. Ízében is ugyanezeket a jegyeket mutatja, szóval egy lager a sok közül. Könnyű, kissé vizes teste van és közepesen szénsavas. Utóíze kesernyés, száraz. Egy a sok közül, ami talán azzal hívja fel magára minimálisan a figyelmet, hogy kesernyésebb, mint az átlag lágerek.

3.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This pretty and tasty lager pours a very light yellow with plenty of bubbly action. Not much aroma here but that is the only weakness that I detect. Robust and effervescent and a little dry too. Nice cereal taste as well.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks Ogreface for sharing. Poured clear yellow with a small lacing white head. Some aroma of hay, malt and sourish yeast, light european hops. Medium bodied one with light malt, grains and yeast, some herbal-grassy hop in the finish.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from beernavigator. Pours golden and clear with white head. Herbs, citrus and brett on the nose. The surpricing slightly tart bretttaste puzzles me, herbs, flowers, limezest, little bitterness, dry finish, fresh, lots of carbonation. Not a hoppy beer, but crisp and refreshing with that herbal/bretty twist.
