3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft @ Jack Russell. Pours a light-golden color; clear; fine-bubble white head. Pleasant honey, cidery character in the aroma; some sweet corniness show nicely. Medium body; moderate CO2; lightly sweet. Sweet corniness, some light toast, a bit on the sweet side with light bittering additions; just crisp enough; I could drink a lot of this. Quiet, crisp, toasty finish; nicely dry.

Picked up at Total Wine in Roseville, awesome store. The beer pours golden with a light head. The smell is sweeter than what’d you expect from a lager, very malty. The taste is a clean sweet malt that carries through the finish. I liked this beer and am starting to like these guys beers, a very easy, drinkable beer. Keep it up.

From Corti Bros in Sacramento this 12 oz bottle poured a gold color with a small white head. Nose of a wet blanket and grassy hops Very light mouthfeel and flavor is ligh caramel malts and odd tasting hops. No much finish. Not much of a beer for that matter.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle purchased from Corti Brother in Sacramento, CA. Aroma has some spicy, peppery, herbal hoppiness present. Lightly grassy and a bit of biscuit. Moderately hazy blonde body with a large, frothy, white head that leaves attractive lacing behind. Lightly sweet, lemony malts to start. Some graininess and a bit of biscuit flavor also makes an appearance. Finishes with a light, herbal, lightly bitter hopped finish. Pretty light, and quite drinkable. A baby pils.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz brown bottle from Corti Brothers. What a coincidence! It smells a bit of wet dog! Certainly the expected grain and hop are absent. The color is brassy gold, and the white head promptly ringed. Medium bodied, sharp carbonation. The instant start is somewhat biscuit, moves on to a hint of roast malt. The bitter is reminiscent of one of the older, better, American lagers that had decent amounts of hop. Olympia is the only one I can remember, and this is probably more pleasing. The finish is crisp, clean, not un-dry, and has an amount of hop for the mouth that is so much more than macro lagers from America. Maybe this is a memorial to the days before our lagers were destroyed by the advent of cheap shipping. (Got nothing against cheap shipping; helps get the craft brews closer to me). Best American pale lager I’ve had recently.

Bottle. Clear yellow with a white head. Toasted malt and sulfur aroma. More toasted malt in the flavor with a clean dry finish. Just OK.
