2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled, I was not too impressed with this one, came off as trying to be a complex lager but really all of the flavors were weak and vague.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a lightly hazed straw-golden into the glass, with a wispy thinning white head that leaves little lace. The nose has some corn, grain and butterscotch. Macro corn notes, some citrus and zest and a light hop to finish. Mouthfeel is light, and not a very complex brew here, but it’s ok for summer. That’s about it.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A golden lager with a thick creamy white head. A chalky malt aroma, caramel, butterscotch notes. In mouth, a biscuitty malt with mineral notes, light german hops, again, light bodied. Boring. On tap at Bridgetender, Lake Tahoe, August 18, 2009.

UPDATED: OCT 18, 2009 Poured from the 12oz. bottle: Moderate carbonation with notes of liquid bread, slight citrus peel and florals. Not bad for a lager. Drinkability: Binge worthy. Rebuy: Nah. #101 on 25082009, DG.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours clear golden, with a medium beige head, fine lacing. Aroma of apple, caramel, biscuit and citrus. Light bodied, and fairly dry. Tastes of caramel, bread, and a hint of spice, with some floral and earthy hop notes. Lasting medium bitter finish. This seems to be more like a pilsner than a premium lager.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Have had this on tap at the Kona brewpub and from the bottle while flying back from Hawaii. Not a bad beer, but nothing special - they have far better.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear pale lager. Decent head retention.
Aroma is lacking, very faint. Light hop aroma with white Wonder bread.
On the palate very very light in taste, body, and finish. Very "macro" for a micro beer.
Faint lemony taste is only virtue that keeps me finishing the beer.
Not worth a try.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz bottle from the local Hannaford. Pours a light straw yellow crystal clear body with a short lived half inch of off-white head. Smells somewhat bready and biscuity. Tastes sweet with some bready elements as well as an unexpected citric hoppiness supporting. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. Very easy drinker, even for the style. I’d definitely get this one again, either to have with macro-drinking friends or on a hot summer day. Good stuff.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz. Clear yellow/tan color, a minimal head. Aroma is lemon, mainly, along with grass and grains. A little bit sour, almost, in a lemon way. Flavor of slight biscuit, mostly light citrus/grain. Average body. Underwhelming.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Grainy malt and yeast aroma. Lightly hazy gold color with a thinnish white head and minimal lacing. Medium body, flavor actually has more of a neutral to hoppy character.
