3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught. Amber-orange with a fine, low head. Malty nose, a bit of caramel like in Vienna malt, some citrus hop. Fruity, grainy caramel flavor, a bit sweet. Drinkable and nice, but not special.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Deep golden color. Flavor is of good balance leaning to the malt side. Aroma is the usual lager aroma but a tad more pleasant. This is actually a better tasting the normal lager.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle. Another ’beer of the month’ beer. (ugh, lagers...) Pours a light bronze color with no head. Smells of malt, water, drop hops. Tastes of malt, kind of a dark lager body, but no real character to it...

1.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Amber-gold pour. Not much aroma. Not much flavor either.
Brewer’s description claims "aromatic" - far from it.
The fourth and most disappointing selection from the beer of the month club. Probably time to cancel.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Dark gold pour with a thin foamy head.
Something might be off here.
Aroma is maly, grainy and slightly acetic/vinegary.
Flavour is tart, getting a fair amount of vinegar which shouldn't be...carbonation seems more effervescent than what I would consider normal.
Will consider a re-rate if I can find a single some time.
