Nothing offensive about it. Kind of like Newcastle in that the body is nowhere near as heavy as the dark color leads you to believe. The flavor is watery with little aftertaste, actually.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Caramel malts, pale malts evident on the nose. The appearance is clear amber red, thin white head. The flavor is standard for the style, caramel malts, some cereal grains, light hops. The finish is almost non-existent. Very light hops, gone in a flash. Definitely a poundable beer. And, I now check Isreal off the list. Not bad overall.

Pours up clear copper with minute long off white head. The aroma hits first with grainy malts and cereal before noble floral and spicy hops take over. I think I get a background of earthiness in there too. The taste has a pulse of sweet sugar flavored malts first that are quickly consumed by mild grains, floral and spice hops bitterness. The floral hops and grains run into the finish with a hint of earthiness picking up somewhere along the way and hanging into the after taste. Interesting brew and pretty decent for the style.

Is indeed a dirty blond in color. Fairly standard lager aroma; hints of green apple. Mediocre bready flavor. Slightly oily mouthfeel.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Ticking Israel here. Amber, slight head. Aroma was of sweet malts with faint, undefined hops. Flavor was overtly caramel accented, with undefined hops providing some bitterness. But not enough to ward off the sweetness . Just too much caramel here for me. Shared with Mike and maniac during Cluster Brew Part Deux.
