3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Poured a clear golden-orange color with a thin, bubbly white head that faded to a thin layer. Sweet, malty aroma with some light caramel and a bit of graininess paired with some faint grassy hops. Smooth, moderately sweet entry with some light caramel and a faint graininess that leads into a soft grassy hoppiness that lingers into a lightly dry finish. Moderate carbonation and crisp mouth feel. Overall, it’s a simple lager that doesn’t really stand out on any fronts, but it’s decent and drinkable.

Not much to say about this guy except that it’s a great tasting slightly malted lager that goes great in hot weather. This second edition being more crisp and less malty than the first.

bottle. Nothing much special. Light amberish pour. Malty and light hops. Flavor is pretty benign. Caramel, light hops, crackers, and some fruit esthers. Ok.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden to copper in colo with an ok white head. The smell is floral, malts, not a whole lot of hops, and grains. The taste is floral, malts, grains, and nothing else.

Pours clear amber with a medium beige head, some lacing. Aroma of citrus, caramel, apple and biscuit. Light bodied, velvety and crisp. Sweet toffee malts up front, with some hints of biscuit and citrus, some mild grass and earthy notes in the finish. Well balanced and drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours golden with small white head. Aroma is sweet metallic malt, malted barley, some dark fruit & alcohol. Taste is malty & creamy...a touch of honey, raisin, and moderate amounts of hops. A truly heavy, full bodied, full flavored lager. Fantastic.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle generously given to me by Ben. Pours dark gold with bubbly white head that recedes fairly quickly. Smells grainy and sweet. A bit metallic. Mild hops. Sweet biscuity malt. This is not remarkable, but it’s easy to drink and refreshing as hell.

12 oz. bottle served in lager glass- poured a transparent solid light copper color, medium carbonation, white ring around the glass for a head with minimal lacing. Aroma of wheat and a few floral. Hits the mouth with a low medium body, malt is defineable and pleasant, small honey note in the middle, finish is refreshing. Nice brew to put me to sleep when I couldn’t on my own last night.
