4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at Great Taste. Said to be an old-school lager recipe from the 1860s, which gets us off on the right foot straightaway. Lovely aromatics, honest hop flowers and grain silos. Just downright farmy. Crisp grassy bitterness, a lightly sweet grainy taste, going drier for the finish. Excellent stuff.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at GT. Yellowed-tan, thick off-white head. Medium bodied, some nice easy yeast tones. Somewhat watery but that works with the style. Classic noble hops..maybe a summer Hellerbock. Simple, subtle, subdued. Some graininess, lemony. Not mind blowing, but a solid brew.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Thirsty Troll Brew Fest. Pour is deep gold with a white head. Aroma is somewhat grainy pale malt and some grassy hops. Flavor shows pretty much the same with a slight floral quality from time to time. Overall the name seemed more impressive than the actually beer turned out to be.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
A pretty standard Amber ale, some hops here, some malt there, it is pretty nondescript.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden yellow. Crisp lager malt aroma, mildest of hops. Clean pale lager malts that finish with light noble-type hop bitterness. Good presence on the palate, more dense than expected. Crisp, semi-dry finish.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clean, golden color with a modest white head. Aroma is very light as a whole but notes a grainy/light hay presence and a light flowery hops nose. Flavor has a grainy pale malt presence with a mild earthy hops middle and a very light hint of vanilla at the tail end. Body is nice and light with a dry finish. Overall an enjoyable, well balanced brew.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub, pours a clear golden with a thin head and some lacing, the aroma has a faint amount of grain and the flavor is pretty crisp and nice, easy drinking and smooth.
