2.4 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a mid/light copper with a thick, white, attractive head. Aroma is sweet yeast and corriander - very much like a hefe. Moderately thick body. Flavor starts moderately sweet and caramel, but takes an odd turn towards bitterness. Ends bitter, dry, and disappointing.

Bottle: Clear gold with fizzy head. Light flavor of husk and malt. Some biscuit and up front fruity hops. Tinny metallic mouthfeel and a yeasty finish. Fairly generic.

This beer is amber in color with a watery flavor. The taste isnít that bad, very drinkable. The aroma is like a mild Belgian.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from the KIRKLAND Costco, thanks scrizz! Pours kinda dark for a PALE lager, somewhat lacy white head. A bit of bread and grass in the aroma. Nutty taste. Nice rounded body, medium carbonation and crisp finish. This beer seems to be a lot closer to a Marzen than a pale lager.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is a little skunky grassy with some sweetness and grainy/bready malts. Pours a darker golden color with a thin head. The flavor is lightly sweet and grassy with an unobtrusive crisp finish. Boring, but not the worst thing I have ever had either.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bought at the Kirkland Costco. Clear light copper, small spongy white head. Lightly sweetened grape-nut aroma. Lightly sweet, simple, sweet finish. Very smooth, lacks the yeast character I find offensive in other pale lagers. I enjoyed this beer, though it may not be in line with the style.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hmm, seems like a cross between a Maibock and a lite lager. I loved it, unlike most raters and beer snobs. We just love to crack on mass retailers and macro brews. It had a delicious malt aroma and flavor, not overpoweringly bitter or sweet, just balanced. I could drink this ALL DAY and be quite drunk and happy. Certainly better than most other "Pale Lagers." But thatís my opinion, whatís yours?

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pepper grass nose with some slight nectarine biscuits. Deep amber/gold color, thick frothy head. Slight citrus jam cracker sweetness, restrained bitterness for balance. Good carbonation, medium body, crisp, but lengthy spicy hop finish. Easy to drink, some nice features, and finish really stands out. A simple beer with some sophistication.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I have only had this once and that may not be enough to truly judge it but it was not a bad beer by any means.
Llight body, average carbonation, overall pretty good.
