2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nice pale and clear colour. Decent head from the pour and retains well. Good Belgian lace as I drink the pint.
Aroma is on the lighter side. Faint grassy sweetness with malty notes.
On the palate the beer is light, sweet, yet refreshingly crisp. Very thirst quenching for a hot day, but don’t worry - there’s enough in this to make it a worthy beer. Maybe a gourmet lawnmower beer? Finish is short and somewhat malty sweet.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle purchased at the brewery. pours a straw colored fluid with a decent head. Has an awesome honey sweet smell which I haven’t witnessed in a lagar in some twenty plus years( Rhomberg All Malt ). Has a full bodied, sticky sweet honey malt flavor . Finishes with a light fresh floral hop bite. Super fresh and highly drinkable. Man, I wish I had more of this brew. I know they serve this in Valhalla.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle poured a light to medium golden color with an averaged sized white head. I’m really searching for some araoms here, some grain, toasted malts and honey. Tastes of honey, grain and fruity. Thinner and weak body.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dull gold. Creamy white pillow of foam. Wort, hay, and apple jam scents fill the nose. Muted blend of spicy and floral hops. Loose, fuzzy, and acidic carbonation films the palate. Light acidity braces the cheeks before a mushy honeyed hay sweetness ensues. Much-needed crunchy husks lend firmness and are accentuated by the doughy, haylike malt elements. Body’s limpness remains, however, namely due to the apple fruitiness. Deep and vivid malts provide lots of dusty and bready textures, but even the caramelized Munich sweetness fails to squelch the fruitiness. Finishes sweet, wet, and persistently mushy with overripe apples and unspent grains. Started out fairly nice, but grows less pleasant as the flavors evolve. Has a lovely deep malt character, but the aroma is very worty and there’s too much fruitiness in the flavor. This also has one of the more peculiar mouthfeels I’ve ever encountered, as the carbonation simply falls apart on the palate. Lots of potential here, though.

I dont beleive I really cared much for this beer. Not very interesting is flavor. The only thing enjoyable was somewhere midway in the pallate. Other than that, not worth anything.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
*Head* - short, foamy. *Color* - hazy ruby gold, darker than most lagers in its class. *Nose* - citrus, warm, sunny. *1st taste* - clean, brief. Not much flavor or interest. *Middle* - sting of lemons. *After* - slight bitterness, very little residue. *Overall* - I would describe this as significantly improved piss beer. It goes down smooth and simple, but without the horrible artifacts of Bud, etc. Very enjoyable on a hot summer day.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice sweet mellow caramel malt aroma, with subtle hints of spicy hops, and yeast. Appearance is very clear, wildly carbonated, darker straw color, with a medium volume white head. Very smooth balanced taste with a full feeling palate. Starts with a caramel sweetness and finishes with a slight hoppy bitterness at the back of your tongue. Also has subtle hints of strawberry and ginger. Nice medium body with a full carbonated mouth feel. This is an extremely drinkable, refreshing beer; Perfect for a hot day.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This was something I tried at the brewery that was supposed to be only for the beer club. Has a bit of spicy mustard seed thing going on. Fresh biscuity bread notes, and a little bit of honey. Clean, with some spicy, bitter hops in the finish.

Nothing special here. Not terrible, but not great either. This one was only slightly better than a domestic macro. I helped to put away a six-pack and it went down easy enough, but I can say I wouldn’t bother with it again. Don’t go out of your way for this one.
