Burnt Beer Night: Goldish color with little head. Vague Saaz aroma and taste. Kind of on the grainy side. Quality swill.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Color of dark straw with a pale white head. The aroma has noble hops, sulphur, and sweet, gainy malt. The sweet, grainy malt is balanced by a saaz hop flavor that creates a winy overall character. There is a big flavor up front then dries out in the finish. A solid bitterness throughout this beer. Better than many pale, craft lagers.

Burnt Beer Night: Yellow Coloring... Not a Ton of Flavor...but some Hops and a Flowery Feel To It. Good Lawnmower Lager.

Draught at Ned’s Downtown, Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Yellow beer with no head. Fresh but weak aroma, tones of citrus and peas. Quite flavorfull for a lager. Hoppy and flowery and quite bitter.

This one is better than most of this style. The flavor has a refreshing hoppy bite to it.

Not bad at all for the style. It had a distinct malt taste, slight nuttiness, with a mild hop finish. No skunk at all.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Not a bad effort. Some crisp, zesty hops, a clean taste...maybe the best "premium lager" I’ve had. This would be a great 6-pack beer if it were available here in Texas.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle Pours a very light clear pale yelow, witha small white head that quickly dissapates leaving very slight lacing evidence. Aroma is a somewhat sweet fruity, light grain and yeast. Flavor is a standard pale lager with a little more character. Overall it is a bit bitter and the uninteresting flavor leaves off with a fizzy woody trailer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(12 oz bottle) A light, mildly flavorful and somewhat generic pale lager micro; Good balance between the mild malt and hops, modest sweetness; The nose is lightly hoppy, maybe a little citrusy; The medium bodied palate isn’t as crisp and clean as you might expect from a pale lager as the light sweetness isn’t fully cleaned out by the hops; Yellow color is surprisingly light; A good amount of small but clearly visible sediment is suspended in the beer, making it quite cloudy; Hardly any head on the pour, and it soon fades to nothing; Not bad, better than a macro, but nothing special
