3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transfer from BA review on 9-2-12-
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a medium golden color with a one finger white head. The head fades very fast to leave a very light level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is light and is of a bready smell mixed with a light caramel smell.
Taste – The taste begins of a malty breadiness mixed with a light caramel flavor. As the flavor advances some lighter earthy and herbal hops and a corn sweetness come to the tongue. These flavors mix with the bread and caramel to take the taste to its end.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather light with a higher level of carbonation. It makes it rather drinkable and is good for the style.
Overall – OK, but nothing special here.

Bottled. Gold pour white head. Some straw and light fruits. OK but not too charismatic.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Drank from the bottle. Aroma is hay, corn, and a trace amount of lemon. Taste is a little grassy, with focus on bread. Light body crisp beer. Okay, not my favorite style

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Straw yellow. Finger of white head.
I had to assume it was a lager from the aroma, which is more crisp and light. Touch of that lemon-zing.
The flavor is actually pretty good for a lager. It’s got a touch of honey, with sweeter barley malts. The hop is very subtle, strictly for accent/balance purposes.
Creamy feel, very thick. THAT part isn’t lagery. It’s like some kind of lager/ale hybrid. It’s flavorful but also rather refreshing. Not nearly as horrible as I thought it would be!

transparent gold, fizzy white head, decent lacing. Nose is dusty grain with light syrup sweetness. Grainy metallic flavor, light estery but decent dryness.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Tasted two of these as part of a beer of the month package (generally a bad idea it seems). Beer has a light hoppy start and then a mid soapy range before finishing like a generic ale. Don't know if these bottles were bad but not likely to try a third
