3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aromas of bready malts and faint, grassy hops. Gold-copper with a fully fading, white head. Earthy and biscuity. Light, cleansing carbonation, and with a slightly sweet, bready finish.

Not much to the scent light hops kinda grainy. White foamy head and golden body. Dry yeasty grain flavor. Crisp on palate.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Enjoyed at home.
A: Hazy golden color with a medium-size white head, which dissipated rather quickly.
S: Sweet-smelling with hints of citrus (lemon) and sweeter malts and a hint of toasty-ness. Perhaps some caramel and/or brown sugar as well. Aroma is pleasant, but not overwhelming.
T: Sweet and bready on impact, with some of the citrus flavors emerging in the end for a pleasant taste experience. Subtle aftertaste that resembles the front end -- a sweet maltiness.
M: Light body and sufficient carbonation. Unremarkable.
O: Solid, if somewhat mediocre, lager. Easily drinkable with limited after-taste, and the light body would allow for easy enjoyment with a variety of foods. Definitely not an irresistible beer, but certainly not bad.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured into a pint glass.
4.0 A: Crystal clear medium yellow color. Despite this not being bottle conditioned, there’s a fuck ton of carbonation in this and I needed a few pours to get a full glass. Why would they carb it this much. Big foamy white head. Retention is pretty good and lots of lacing is left.
3.5 S: Fairly potent grassy and spicy hoppiness. Grainy malts with a moderate sweetness. A touch of wort-iness to this as well. Could be a tad cleaner, but overall smells good.
4.0 T: The taste has a good amount of hops in it as well. Grassy, spicy, and earthy in that order. Low bitterness. Grainy malts with a light sweetness and a lot cleaner than the nose suggested. Very nice.
3.5 M: Lighter medium to medium body. A bit overcarbonated, but not too much. Lightly creamy and smooth enough.
4.0 D: Solid beer. ’Nuff said.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not as bad as I thought it would be. Very clean and crisp, and has none of the skunky flavor that a lot of cheap lagers have. Pours golden with a small-to-moderate head. Effectively zero smell.

Draft at Brewpub. Pours golden with a thin white head. Slight cereal note on the nose. Thicker than expected mouthfeel. Some floral notes on the tongue. Mouth has a nice coating afterwards. Solid example of style.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle, thanks Lalo. Straw golden with no head. Nose is fairly corny, grain, light bread, salty, skunky. Flavor is sweet bread, vegetal notes, grain. This is one of the worst beer’s I’ve had in a while.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Draft. Hazy yellow color, scant white head. Aroma of wet cardboard. Taste is watery cardboard and lemonade. These guys need to try harder, especially now that Hardywood Park is in town.
