1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
12 ounce bottle courtesy of Butters at the 14th Richmond Ratebeer Gathering, 3/19/11.
Pours a hazy pale golden color with a medium creamy white head. Good head retention and lacing. Aroma of grain, corn, mushrooms and a musty note. The taste is grant, peach-like fruit notes and some dusty, musty notes. Thin-medium bodied. Weird beer.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle from AJ’s Fine foods Scottsdale. Pours bright yellow with an inch of white foam. The head disappears quickly and it clouds up as it warms. This may be called Lhasa beer but it smells like a llama shit in it. A little skunky in the tongue with a bit of corn oil as well. Meh!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lhasa Beer has a thick, foamy, white head and a somewhat murkey, bubbly, golden straw appearance, with some sticky lacing sheen and lots of little brown chunks floating about. The aroma is of quite sweet, syrupy rice and honey. Taste is of dank, old rice and sweet bread, with a strong overall barley malt flavor and a nice mild hoppy background. Mouthfeel is medium and chewy, and Lhasa Beer finishes semi-dry, refreshing, and different. Overall, this is a very good and interesting beer. RJT

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bad ass bottle from World Market Garland. Poured a slightly unfiltered pale yellow color with a foamy white top and lacing. Taste of dough, biscuit, corn, and grains. Medium-high carbonation, thin body. Side note: this is probably the coolest bottle/label I’ve seen so far!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks to chickencoop for this bottle
Appearance is clear pale yellow with an off white head that falls to a skim. The smell is of nice delicate sweet malt with a light hop bitterness noticeable. Also a slight fruitiness. The taste pretty much follows the smell. The fruitiness is a little more pronounced. Dry slightly bitter aftertaste. Pretty tasty.
Mouthfeel is quite nice. Body is on the heavy side of light with a slight oily feel. Active carbonation - pretty smooth.
Overall I was pretty happy with this lager. Very drinkable and tasty.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A fizzy pour with a finger and half of head on a hazy, light straw colored body.
The aroma is nice. Honey and floral for the most part.
The taste is grainy with mild bitterness and a touch of honey sweetness.
A soft texture with moderate carbonation and medium body.
It’s a euro pale lager unlike any I’ve had. Quite aromatic and good flavor.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
The lightest color beer I’ve ever seen. High carbonation. White head that actually lingers throughout. Crisp with a slight malt flavor and the Saaz hops are evident.
