3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
5L mini-keg at a New Year’s Party. Pours a pale, golden yellow with a white creamy foam head. Pleasant lager aroma of barley malt. Flavor is a perfect balance that I have been missing for a long time. Nice citrus bitterness flows evenly with the grainy malt character. Medium bodied at extemely easy to drink. I had more pints than I was expecting, it is just so smooth and creamy... delicious. Prost!

500ml bottle from Quaffs, Spitalfields Market. Pale gold with thick white head. Light lager aroma, bit of metallic pale malt. Very light in mouth, with a quickly disappearing flavour. Some metallic carbonated sting. Faint lemon. No off flavours, but just a lack of anything.

5L keg from Dilly Deli. Poured clear golden color with a large frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate sour citrus hoppy aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Balanced bittersweet flavor with a moderate sweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
5L keg at our Septoberfest party. This beer pours a pale yellow color with a medium thick and frothy white head that diminishes slowly. Spotty lacing. Aroma of mild hops and grainy malt. Light-bodied with a bready malt and hops flavor. Not a whole lot else going on aside from touches of spice. The finish is clean and earthy with a short-lived malt aftertaste. Average-ish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very minimally hazed straw/gold with a bright white head. Nose is as to be expected for the style. Slightly hopped and earthy. Flavor is fairly robust. Good, but not overly unique. Smooth bitter edge with a slight sweet touch. Feel is standard. Drinkable? Absolutely. This may not be the most inventive of the style, but you could certainly session this one quite easily. More of an everyday beer instead of a special occasion one.
For some reason as I drink this I have the urge to eat a big fat pork chop with this.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Crisp and grassy pils with a sweet fresh wort nose. Pours golden with a strong head. Good malts, give a honey and light malt flavor. Not as crisp as I like pils to be, the finish really lets me down. Could use more hops and more attenuation.

Mini keg on the beach in Orange beach AL - Pours golden with a big rocky white head that stays well. Aromas of frosted flakes, grains, and slight herbal hops. Flavor is grainy as well. Some frosted flakes and slight grass at the finish. Easy to drink and quite crisp and clean on the palate.

Bottle from Ron’s Schoolhouse, Exton. Pale gold pour with 2-finger whitish head. Aroma of pale malt, slight hopcitrus and honey. The flavor was pale malt, some light syrupy apricot, and mild hops and citrus. Not terribly exciting.
