3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from bottle. Pours dark gold with a lasting creamy head. Aroma is mostly sweet malt. Some floral hop notes present. Flavor is well-balanced and clean with some spicy hops. Medium-bodied and quite smooth. Excellent for what it is and a good beer all-around. I’ll certainly buy more of this.

This remindsof the beers I have to buy when I am eating at Indian restaurants. Musty grass on the nose. Light straw in color with a quick white head. Decent hop presence for a swiller, but sweet maltness, like wheaties, dominates. Interesting. Thnks Jamie.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear medium yellow with smallish bubbly head. Nose is slight floral hops and musty lager yeast. The flavor is mildly sweet and has a little mustiness to it. Some rather subdued hops flavor and bitterness in the end. Mouthfeel rather filling for a light bodied beer. Bubbly. Refreshing. Good pale lager.

Stubby. Pours dull straw color with a little filmy ring of white head. Soapy bread on the nose. Light body, medium carb. Timid sweetness on the attack, with a hint of bitterness that somehow seems not to come from hop flowers. This is a moderately sweet, slightly fizzy, rather misguided nod to a style best left to the macros.

11 oz. bottle from Lewis. Drank 5/17/06. Pours super clear yellow, maybe a small tint of orange. Very small white head goes away immidiately. Cool bottle. Aroma - not strong, but good. Maybe some noble hops. Definitely some malt sweetness, and maybe a little yeast? Flavor - carbonation and bitterness immidiately in the start. Cool and smooth on the tongue and then just a tad of sweet malts balanced by some slightly spicy noble hops - all in the swallow. Crisp after the swallow. Palate - light with just a tad of medium. High carb. keeps it light though. Crisp, slightly dry finish. Overall - a pretty nice "session" lager. Way more character than BMC. Definitley different and more "american" than a european lager, but similarly interesting - A little more sweet. Good lawnmower beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
I liked the bottle. Interesting in that it will not allow you to "glug" the beer when pouring it. Pours a slightly rich straw color with thin pellucid head. Lots of effervescence nucleates on the sides of the glass but it doesn’t turn into head somehow. Lightly malty, doughy aroma, with slight hint of mini-wheats. Vague, ever-so-slight hoppiness, but not enough to actually assign descriptors. Flavor is acidic at first from the lively carbonation but kind of flattens into a dull maltiness. Mostly a cereal-like taste. Ever so light herbal quality to the bitterness. Finishes with sharp bite from the carbonation, making this quite pleasing as a post-run libation. This is ok, but not any better than something like a Heineken or Grolsch. I’m pretty sure it’s rated higher because it’s made by a micro, which is BS.
