1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Cloudy orange with a meager white head. Bready, malty, hoppy aroma but of little consequence. Lots of carbonation. Some woodiness and smoke. Nice bottle, anyway.

Hazy orange with a thin white head. Both malty and hoppy and quite light. Strong aroma of wood and slightly smoky. Very good for a pale lager.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle brought back from a trip to Switzerland by my sister. - Pours dark golden hazy with a short white foamy head. Aromas of light malts, bread, and floral hops. Flavor is malty with lots of bread notes and a touch of caramel but also plenty of floral hop flavor as well. Palate is medium bodied and a touch on the grainy side. Not bad for a pale lager actually.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden color with a moderate off white head. Quite light in aromas, with pale grains, light dough and hints of light comb honey. I’d like to rate higher, but a little to sedate in the nose. Fairly thick and smooth on the palate. Light flavors of pale caramel, malted milk and a touch of pine bark. A touch of wood come in the linger. Definitely fresh oak. The linger is long and intriguing. A light lager JP Lucernaga. I like in a drinkable way.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours slightly cloudy dishwater blonde with quickly fading white head. Aroma of malt, hop and honey. Smooth mouthfeel with light carbonation. Light honey flavor with some caramel malt sweetness. Not bad, but needs something to combat the sweetness.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Blond colour, nice thick head, nice perlage, unfiltered. Nice aroma of malt, hop and honey. Good velvety sensation, some malt, a bit sweet. Ordinary palate, would improve with some more bitterness.
