30-Mar-11 (500-ml bottle, Batch L015: Purchased 01-Mar-11 for $7.99 at Total Wine & More in Tustin, CA)
Expecting a mild, easy drinking session lager, this beer is a real surprise, but in this case, that is not a positive thing. There’s not a lot of flavor here, but the gently grainy and bready malt has a slightly smoky flavor, and hops are exceptionally light, perhaps offering a touch of grassiness. Much more noticeable is the gentle lemony tartness and almost Brett-like flavor, but without any of the complexity or depth associated with this sort of beer and makes you wonder if this is intentional or not (I’m guessing not intentional). As a result, the beer tastes a bit like dishwater and just isn’t pleasant. The nose is mostly fruity, but it’s a tart fruitiness of grapes and peaches, with additional aromas of funk and smoked malt. Doesn’t smell at all like you’d expect, but unlike the flavor, it’s not unpleasant. Light in body and light in carbonation, but again, the gentle acidity seems out of place. When in the glass, this beer is the antithesis to most English beers, pouring fully hazy with suspended particles dancing around, but the head is nothing more than a thin wisp of off-white bubbles that dissipates quickly. Indeed a "real lager" as the bottom of the bottle is lined with yeast. Overall, not the worst beer I’ve had lately, but with the odd tart/funky character, this beer seems to have gone south and ends up being a drain-pour.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The aroma is pretty weak but seems to have the herbal/floral type of hops with malt and a touch of paper. The appearance is slightly hazy gold with a small but foamy head. The taste is like the aroma with a dry finish. The palate is right for this style. Overall I love organic products but this is only a decent lager. Sadly the case with so many organic beers.
