3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Another one from the pack my friend gave me. Poured into a stemmed lager glass.
Pours a dark rusty orange, clear, with a small white head on top. Scents of grass, lemon juice-soaked crackers, orange zest. There’s ample bubbles rising through this beer, and this gives this beer a nice crisp feel. Light with a touch of dryness on the back end. Easy drinking for sure.
Mild bitterness from the hop presence, semi-sweet citrus add a nice balance. Easy finish with no lingering aftertaste. This beer is what it is - a simple easy drinking lager. I was in the mood for one and it delivered. I could see this pairing well with some burgers or grilled ’dogs.

Pours a light clear copper color with a cream colored two finger head. Smells of sweet malts and barley. Little hop aroma.
Taste is malty with a smooth finish. Light body and slightly sweet. Nothing impressive about it. Lively carbonation but easy to drink.
Overall it is a decent attempt and is not bad for the price.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
355ml bottle pours a very pale amber color with a finger of white head that leaves only a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is cereal grains and grass. Taste is a grainy malt sweetness with some grassy hop bitterness. Only slightly better than a typical American macro lager. Nothing special and not recommended.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Metal infused caramel malt aroma. Light copper color, and oddly enough light copper taste as well. Aside from that it’s mainly corn syrupy sweet malt. Smooth and overall refreshing, aside from pinging a tad on the finish. Passable in the Vienna range, does not stack up against favorites Boston Lager and Brooklyn Lager.
