2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle - gift from my wife’s co-worker. Amber pour with a short white head. Aroma is malty and slightly sweet with grains and light hops. Taste is malty and grainy with a light sourish twang and soft fruit notes. Grass and straw come through as well. Body is light-medium with soft carbonation. Ends with more grains, sweet malt, a light sour fruit twang and and a touch of grassy hops.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thanks jdubfl for the share. Pours clear gold with white head. Nose is bread, corn, sweetness and a tiny amount of hops. Flavor is similar with water, hops, and sweetness. Light bodied and not bad overall.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

I’m sorry guys your IPA won me over, but this did not. The sweet taste just does not fit this beer. It hits your taste buds at a weird time while drinking it. I will stick with the IPA. I still need to try certified evil, I’m really looking forward to it.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle -
Aroma - very hard to pick-up any major aromas. Light malty grain, a little sulfur and a touch of apple juice.
Appearance - solid gold body, clear with sporadic bubbles coming up from the bottle. Head starts out about 3/4" thick, disipates to just a splatch of nothing really.
Taste - flavor is really clean, not much to hang your hat on. Kinda minerally tasting, light grass and a touch of sweet malt
Palate - light bodied, light carbonation...has a seltzer water kinda feel to it
Overall - a really nice standard lager. Not sure where the "pre-prohibition" claim/name comes in to play. No noticeable flaws, easy to drink. Big thanks to pfoxyjohn for sending me this one!

There wasn’t a whole lot going on here. I saw this beer pop up everywhere so I tried it and rated it. There is nothing terrible but it wasn’t what I was expecting. Maybe there was too much hype and my expectations were too high.

In bottle at beer school. Bright amber color. Smells like... Musty chocolate, in a good way. ?? Tastes... Like a lager.

Passable lager gotten in trade. Some malty aroma, some white head on light golden colour. A tad light mouthfeel, easy drinking. Pure example of style.
