4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours like a glass of iced tea, with a frothy, disintegrating head. Nice whiffs of biscuity malt, honey, almond, and tangy Cascades. Startling complexity for a lager, with different aspects of this beer calling for attention at each sip. Seems to defy categorization, sometimes like a bitter, sometimes like an Oktoberfest, maybe even an APA? This rating is for the superb bottled version, but it is even better on draft in Milwaukee.
Also, a very neat, colorful label; in fact, one of my favorites in recent memory.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This beer is a clear amber filtered product with a quickly fleeting head. The aroma is has a bit of apple scent, but not much. It does not have a very strong flavor either, but the little flavor that it does have tastes like shredded wheat.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark copper in color, with little head. Malty aroma with a little yeast in the background. Good bitterness yet still malty. This is a beer I could drink all night.
