2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Costco. Orange gold color with a decent white head. Aromas of grain and fruit. Near medium body with mild carbonation. Flavor is a bit weird. There’s fruit and hop spice, and malt, but there’s something extra. Linoleum paste came to mind. Quality product, but hard to pin down the extra flavor.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle from Costco - Cincy. Poured a clear copper color with a large frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate tart citrus and sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium malty bitersweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Clear copper color with a medium thin off-white head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of toasted malt and hops. Light-bodied with flavors of grainy malt and herbal hops. The finish is semi-sweet with a caramel and stale malt aftertaste. Slightly below average overall.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle thanks to billshmeinke. Pours with a clear golden hued body with a small white head that fades. Aromas are grassy, grainy, floral with mild sulfur. Flavors are sweet, grainy and oxidized with mild DMS. Lively bubbles and thin. I think this bottle might have some age on it.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Bright bronze body, tight white head. Grainy aroma, very plain. Sweet grainy palate with a whiff of bittering hop presence at the back, but really dull. Not something that makes me think of Germany at all.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle - Overall a dissapointing beer that is only barely better than the huge macro’s. Not really worth the work to describe in that I would avoid.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bouteille @ OTH.
Troisième d’une série qui ne laisse rien de mémorable.
Arôme de malt grillé, grains, en bouche, savonneux et sec, malt et grillé avec ce qui parait sembler être du malt Munich et malt noir donnant ce petit goût grillé et métallique. Au fini on note une fine amertume.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This reddish gold lager poured with a bubbly off-white head and a floral aroma. There is sufficient caramel malt to make this brew flavorful and the Hallertau hops are evident at the finish. However, there is an unusual spicy taste, probably from the yeast, that is not entirely favorable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Kyoto Cosco. Deep gold to light amber. Fine, medium head. Malty nose, some caramel, a bit of diacetyl, light hop. Sweet and malty, but not overly so, grassy hops complement., with nice bitterness. Actually, it’s pretty decent. Full bodied. Balanced, great for the price.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear copper with weak white head. The aroma is lager-y , sugary, a bit earthy and with sweet apples and prunes in the background. The taste goes from mildly estery to sweet lager-y, sugary, fruity to faintly spicy. It ends a touch on the dry side.
