3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle shared thanks to stevencon! Pours a clear golden brown with thin off-white last head that sticks lightly. Aroma is bready malt and slight alcohol, lager yeast fruitiness. Taste follows, clean and crisp, easy to drink. Medium carbonation, pretty solid beer, but nothing crazy.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours deep amber with thin head. Nose is malt forward with notes of caramel, toastiness and mild berry-like fruit. Flavor is very rich - a very full palate for a relatively light beer that is composed of a range of lightly sweet caramel flavors and very nice bread-like character. Malt notes in the taste are followed by a good amount of mildly bitter noble-like hop flavors and a lasting slightly resinous hop finish. Great stuff.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark copper body under a small fizzy off-white head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is the nose is nicely malty with some light caramel sweetness and a minimal hoppiness. Smells really well lagered, so clean and just a minimal huskiness. The flavor bears out the well lagered aroma as well. Malty without being overly sweet or husky and grainy, just really simple and straight forward. Finishes with just a light hint of bitterness on the back end. Light to medium bodied, very smooth, perfect soft light carbonation. Really nice beer. Not sure what makes this so unique that it demands it’s own style, but whatever, it’s delicious.
