3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Biscuity aroma. Lemony citrus initial taste with a bready malt backbone. Nothing offensive, simple but bold flavor. Lingers on the palate.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a very clear darker amber color with a moderate off-white head on it. Nose is slightly sweet and nutty, with just a bit of toast to it. Taste is much dryer than I expected, though there is a hint of sweetness on the back end. Slight bits of toast and nuts throughout.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A copper body with a fast fading white head. Aroma had mostly sweet caramel malts upfront. Some sense of toast malts and a nutty presence. Flavor was mostly sweet malts, there was a bit of spice from the hops. Thin mouth feel. Not a bad beer, but overall it was lacking in both flavor and aroma.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Standard US longneck, perfunctory label. Packaging appearance offset by the bright, clear, bronze beer. Filmy ivory head with frogs’ eggs bubbles. Nice, dry nutty malt aroma. Toast, cereal, nutty malt flavor with light astringency and a little grass. Medium body, toasty-bitter finish. Not a complicated beer, but a refreshing one. Trader Joe’s, Tallahassee.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Fruity hops, deep amber malts, crisp finish. This is a really good interpretation of the styles. The lager balances out the taste of the traditional amber ale.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange amber pour, white head that dissipates to nothing. Simple, bready sweet malt nose. Flavor is same sweet bready malts with faint hop presence. Slightly stale tasting. Best by date is obscured (partially stamped) so I’m assuming this is old... Hey full sail, if you’re going to go through the trouble of using a best by stamp maybe make it at all legible.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber body under a small fizzy white head that faded to a thin ring pretty quickly. The nose is sweet vienna malt with a bit of light fruitiness and minimal to no hops. The flavor is fairly sweet with that little bit of fruitiness emerging on the back end that’s a bit of a problem in a Vienna Lager. Minimal to no hops to balance out the sweetness from the malt. Not quite as clean as I’d like. Light to medium bodied with a bit of cling to the finish and minimal soft carbonation. Meh, this is one I could pass on were I faced with the choice of having it again.
