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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Transfer from BA review on 3-6-13-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a clear medium amber color with a two finger white head. The head has great retention slowly fading to leave a decent level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is light overall but is heaviest of malt and a caramel sweetness. Mixed with these are a faint whiff of a earthiness as well.
Taste – The taste starts out with flavors of a malty and bready base with some light caramel flavors. As it advances further there are flavors of a fruity nature come to the tongue. The sweeter fruit flavors however start to fade more toward the middle to the end of the taste with a light bitterness form a mix of citrus hop flavors coming to the tongue. With all the flavor combined, in the end a moderately sweet caramel and lightly hopped bready flavor is left to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is average to above average in terms of its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather average. The combo of the two is nice for the flavors of the brew and create a rather nice easy drinking brew.
Overall – For the price you pay for this one it is one good brew. There were no detectable off flavors with nice smooth transition. Not too shabby.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from the local Costco. Pours a clear amber color with a moderate frothy white head on it. Nose has quite a bit of varied grains in there, and little else to it. Taste is actually a bit toasty, with a bit of a bite to it. Nothing special, though not bad.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Unmalted barley, corn aroma. Hazy amber, big head. Honey flavor, tart lemon overtones. Mild husk bitterness in the finish. Not a great deal of hop presence and mild to be sure, but not without flavor.

12oz bottle in Seattle. Darker woody orange. Light sweet yeast aroma, bready malts. Pretty clean in flavor, nothing horrible here. Not as crisp or clean as the real thing though. But a nice enough lager.
