Pours a murky golden brew.Looks okay and has a lot of funk going on with the aroma action,not unlike old unwashed socks.Musty, and yet sweet, sweet and then again sour.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2008 Honey yellow color with hardly a head at all. Aroma is lightly citrus. Taste is like pure malt extract with some fuggle juice. Medium bodied and somewhat dry and light bitterness.

Tap: golden color with a white head. Sort of skunky euro lager aroma and flavor to it. Not my favorite. Probably true to style, but my taste buds aren’t into it.

Golden clear body topped by a white head. Grainy toasted white bread aroma. Minimal sweetness. Lightly dough medium sweet and lightly bitter. Dry medium body. Alcohol is totally hidden. Intersting stuff.

very enjoyable pale lager. quite light for a bock, but still tasty. more like a "lager" than a typical cider, but more flavorful than a "lager" is supposed to be. definitely a fun winter seasonal. very drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewery. Clear golden color with a fast diminishing white head. Slightly sweet fruit smell(apples or pears) but sort of weak and also a hint of corn. Sweet fruity taste dominated but a bit of corn bitterness found its way in the end and kept this from being a super tasty and drinkable beer. It was still tasty and drinkable, just not super. A clean finish as well.

from the tap at my favorite brewery. poured a cloudy golden with a nice white head that hung around for a while. aroma, hops, corn, as it warmed the aroma got a litlle more pronounced. flavor corn, hints of lemon, hops. this is one of those beers that should be sold in the summer

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep yellow-golden color with a good amount of white head. Very lagery aroma of sour hops, slightly metallic aroma as well, but not in a bad way. Starts out quite reserved and picks up in strength as it warms. Good clean lagered flavor of barley, some corn, lighlty sour, lightly bitter, medium body. Alcohol is not perceptible, has an almost syrupy feel to it. Something like lemon in the flavor as well. I will have to try more, quite good though.
