Clear light golden pour with filmy near white head. Grainy nose with toasted vanilla. Flavor is a little butterscotch and corn and honey. Pretty meh.
Earlier Rating: 11/27/2009 Total Score: 2.9
Pours a very clear pale copper with fair ring of offwhite head. Nose is weak and a bit corny, but not unpleasant. Flavor is a bit doughy, a bit floral, with a caramel, toast, and citrus bite. Medium soft body with fair carbonation. Decent offering for an american take on the style.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft. Dark amber with little head. Typical lager aroma. Overly sweet taste. Palate is a little thin. I suppose it's fine for what it is but I didn't particularly enjoy it.

Tasted at Blacksburg Brew Do - this has a malty aroma with subtle hops underneath, malty taste, not a particularly long finish, but easy to drink.
