2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle--Let’s mark Hawaii off the list. The beer is a dark golden color with a hoppy aroma. The taste was hoppy too, and that’s where it ended. The brew reminds me of a long distance runner that starts off too fast and fades at the end. The finish was a bit chewy. Produce place 1.49

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cleary orange pour with a thin white head. Aroma is light citrus and spice. Quite a spicy hop bite for flavor. Medium carbonation. Back end has some lingering cardboard. Until the finish this was an above average lager.

Nothing too impressive with this one, but I’m glad I tried it to get it out of the way. My wife likes it.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, bottled 6/2/08. Aroma intriguing with lemon, wheat, citrus, grass. Flavor boring and dull, grainy pale malts. Not unpleasant, but nothing to write home about.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, bottled 6/2/08. Pours a light clear orange with a small white head. Aroma of wheat and some faint melon rind. Flavor is also quite wheaty with some cardboard and bittery hops in the finish. Kind of flavorless. Not bad for a lager though.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep yellow with thin white head. Mild aroma of sweet malts and citrus hops. Flavor was sweet malts, dough, grains and hop bite at the finish. I liked the balance of the smooth texture and the nice lemony hop bite at the end. A nice summer session beer. It may seem even tastier because I was drinking this on the beach at the Jersey shore while watching a bunch of surfers.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a straw yellow with a decent white head. Head disappears quick. A lot of malts and water. Taste is kind of sweet but not too bad. Citrus and lemon are also present.

A Mes rate: Bottle at GBBF.
Pale gold with a reasonable white head. Slight grain, some pepper and a lot of fruit. Faint all round but a tolerable lager really.
