3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Frugal MacDoogal. Pours pale amber with a dissipating ivory head. Aroma of cereal and fruity esters. Light bodied with average carbonation, and perhaps a little watery in texture. Very pale malt backbone that is a mix of caramel, pils, and toasted malts. Subtle but detectable hop bitterness brings this into balance. Actually a decent beer to pair with hearty food when you want to go lighter. By itself, not so exciting.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle from grownfool- thanks again, Brian! Pours a cloudy orange-amber color with a pretty small white head. Aroma of sweet malts, citrusy hops, biscuits, crackers, cereal, and sugar. Flavor of minerals, pale malts, straw, paper, and saltines. Light-bodied, with high carbonation and a crisp, mineral mouthfeel. Dry finish. Promising in the nose but there just isn’t much flavor here.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A little bready/grainy flavor to it, mostly a macro lager taste to it, although not too bad, probably because it isn’t nasty.

Pours a deep golden almost orange with a good head and some lace. The aroma is hay and noble hops with a mild biscut character. The flavor is very crisp with a nice hoppy bitterness and some grassy mild earthiiness. One of the best pale lagers I’ve had.

Courtesy of jdubFL. Pours clear copper with thin white head. The aroma is spoiled moldy earthiness, spicy hops and sour citrus. I like the smell. The taste is pretty crisp with modest levels of spicy hops and mild malt sweetness and seemingly little else.
