2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear but robust golden orange colored body with a thin filmy head. Nose is full of acetone and chemical scents. Flavor is initially crisp and slightly sweet, turning to sour grains and corn husk over the middle and into a sour and semi-dry finish. Body is fairly well weighted, with some chewy, slightly thick cracker and biscuit malt flavors. Leaves a plasticy sour residue in the mouth. Unoffensive but lacking anything worth interest.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is one of those brews that I stayed away from because I knew it was good, but I figured it wouldn’t knock my socks off, so I didn’t bother to drink it again. Well, that was an exercise in poor judgement!! The beer pours a golden tan, with a nice head, especially if the beer is poured at 44 degrees or so. A sweet-n-sour aroma. A very smooth taste, and not over-poweringly " European ". If there’s corn in it, then it’s a good example of why the Big Four as far as ingredients go is obsolete. A very crisp, and refreshing beer, with a nice aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Bilbo Baggins in Alexandria, VA. Pours a light yellow and golden color. Smells sweet and citrus-y, hints of lemon. The same thing can be said of the taste. Very sweet. Hop finish balances out the sweetness upon swallowing but this does not make the beer bitter. A very good, different beer.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
This is a mild lager, but very well done. A clear, golden color with a firm white head. Taste is on the malty side but an appreciable amount of hops. This is my type of golden lager, not dominated by skunky Bohemia hops.
