4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured out of bottle into pint glass. Clear with slight yellow color. Developed short head on pour that lasted a minute or two after.
Smells good for an American Lager. A slight note of apple or pear. It doesn’t have that harsh smell that accompanies so many of the lagers made by others.
Taste: Soft and smooth. I can’t pick out any distinct flavors though.
Less carbonation than other lagers, which is good. Goes down easy.
I could drink this all day long. It’s a session lager, so it’s doing its job well. Personally, I would tend toward with their Session Black Lager because of it drinkability combined with a little more flavor.

11.2-ounce stubby bottles. Feels a bit thin, has a poor aroma, and is a little more carbonated than I would like but it has decent taste and has a pretty high abv for a "session" lager. Not great, but not bad either.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from City Beer. Light hop, grass, hay, grainy nose. Pale gold with a low, bubbly head. Sweet, somewhat grainy, a bit corny, light hopping. Faint Bitterness. Very boring, actually. And thin.

This is a good basic very drinkable lager. Inexpensive good taste would recommend.

Better than most lagers. They call it a session thought it is almost 6 percent abv. Very malty and bitter. Meh. Had at a party. Best option available

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I just didn’t really like this beer. Maybe it was too watered down for me. The malts gave this beer an off taste, possibly due to the weakness of the hops. I would not have this beer with any kind of food as that just amplifies the off taste.
