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 that’s my opinion, what’s yours?

Meh. A definite step above a macro but a step below what I usually drink. Crisp and bready, not much else going on. High carbonation.

341 ml bottle poured at home. Copper in color with a creamy beige head and decent lacing. Not much to smell here at all. Quite carbonated. Has a toffee or a molasses taste with a slightly bitter finish. Overall pretty drinkable beer.

Bottle.A: Semi-clear copper with an off-white head. Light lacing.N: Biscuit, touch of toffee and sweet grape. Some husk, corn, and a touch of hops.T: Quite bready. No hop presence, but not top sweet. Not the cleanest beer in the world. M: Light body, foamy carbonation, no alcohol. O: Could use some tidying up in the palate, but overall, inoffensive and with some

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

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.
