2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Location: On tap at the 51st and 6th location of the brew pub
Aroma: Earthy malts/barley
Appearance: light orange color, thin/med head
Flavor: Dominated by the malts, some sweet corn, not hoppy at all
Palate: Light to medium body, leaning light
A standard, not too exciting lager typical of the lager offerings from other chain brewpubs...

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
My least fav of their ’regulars’
Poured a medium gold with a thin white head. Aroma was grainy with a light grassy hop.
Flavour was grainy sweet and pretty unremarkable.

A golden orange lager with a thin lacing white head. A good malt base with nice caramel notes in aroma. In mouth, a classic pils, czech in style, with lots of hops, biscuitty malts, and a nicely oily mouthfeel. Medium bodied. Tasted at the Union Square location, Nov. 2006.

On tap at Empire State Building.
Brewed with sweet corn, which was not a very good idea. Malty sweet, not much else in the way of flavour or aroma.

Clean yellow incolor. A light, crisp, and refreshing lager, though not entirely delicious. Light sweet malts, bread, and just the faintest citric hops.
