Solid stuff. Great flavor concentration, good hops, medium+ body. Oddly bitter finish that detracts.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle poured into lager glass. No great surprise, the appearance is golden with a thin white head. Aroma is a bit skunky, but otherwise there seems to be a decent hops/malt balance. Same goes for the taste. Not very exciting. Smooth feel, though. Overall, I’m pretty disappointed in this beer. I’d heard good things about it, but this just seemed a better version of an American light lager. Not very impressive.

From Bottle. Pours a deep golden color with medium head. Aroma was malty with bread and caramel. Taste followed but well balanced with hops.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Best before February 13, 2013.
Appearance: There’s a slight haze in the light amber colored body with only a few carbonation bubbles rising rapidly to the surface. The head is thick and creamy leaving lots of lacing. If this beer were clear it’d get a 5.
Aroma: The aroma is slightly malty with hints of caramel, the hops are present and provide a light floral bouquet with hints of bright citrus.
Taste: This is a fantastically balanced beer, the malts are plentiful providing a sweet and clean flavor that is balanced nicely by the citrus leaning hops that also provide a slightly spicy finish.
Palate: Medium bodied with an oily texture, light carbonation.
Overall: This is very easy drinking and something that manages to be interesting while not being offensive. This is a great compromise for having people over who normally drink stuff like Miller Light, without compromising your taste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance is golden like a typical pilsner with about a 1 finger head. Lacing is ver nice. Aroma is sweet, malty and strong corn presence as it warms. Taste is malt and a hint of caramel up front followed by corn and yeast in the middle finishing with very little hops that do not last. Mouthfeel is thick for a lager with very soft carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a very clear light amber/dark gold with good head and little lacing. Sweet grain aroma with barely some hops. Malt/grain sweetness with nice full toasty bread taste and a slight pepperiness. Clean taste reminiscent of a pilsner but more sweetness and I like it better. Fuller mouthfeel than expected for a lager and relatively smooth. Very drinkable. Good beer to sway macro drinkers. Josh bought in Indiana.

Bottle and tulip glass. Pours amber to orange in color with good fizzy white head. Aroma is malt and hop with vague notes of bread and citrus. Taste is pretty much the same. A funky bitterness I can't quit put finger on. Good carbonation. More hearty than I had anticipated. Good.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A golden kolsch with a thin lacing white head. In aroma, a crisp biscuit malt with mineral notes and a bit of a veggie notes. In mouth, decent biscuit malt with smooth mineral notes, sweetish, nice. On tap at Great Lakes at Cleveland Airport, Dec. 2 2012.

Not a great example of the style in my opinion. I feel the brewers have maybe tried 5 beers of this syle then decided they were experts.

The beer is almost copper colored, not quite. The hop note is strong and familiar, yet well balanced in the flavor. This beer is surprisingly thick. The finish lingers long. A stand alone beer meant to be drunk while reading or listening to great music or just sitting in front of a fire.
