2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a clear medium copper with a one finger white head. Fairly good head retention and lacing with the head hanging around for awhile.
Aroma of cooked vegetables and some corn. There is really a lot of DMS here and Iím not sure if it is intended or not. Some caramel and grassy hops are buried in the background.
The flavor thankfully has less in the way of DMS but does bring along an odd, sour tartness that really detracts from the flavor. Some toffee and bready malt along with hay in the background but again I feel like there are too many off-flavors up front. Pretty watery mouthfeel but that is not out of line with a beer that is only 4.5%
Overall, Iím not really impressed. If this was cleaned up a little it could really shine.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Gold w/ white head. Grassy hop aroma. Pretty mediocre pale lager. Nothing too special...although itís better than any macro. Notes of barley malt, grassy hops and something like black pepper on the finish. It is what it is...a easy drinking clean lager. Ok everyday drinking brew. Wonít buy again though...there are P.L.ís I enjoy more.

Clear golden color with a small white head. Aroma is grains with some caramel. Iím not really liking the aroma here. Taste is bread, slight fruitiness, touch of a caramel. Nice balance to the flavor here. Pretty light bodied. Better than I had expected. Thanks atom!

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle poured into a tumbler glass.
Clear amber-copper color with a quickly gone small white head.
Caramel malt aroma with some rotten apples and faint hops.
Sweetish malt flavors, with low bitterness and slight tartness.
Light-med body, some nice crispness and overall drinkable but far from great.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
hazy honey color with a small dense head. Aroma of sour grapes or apples, some yeast, some malt. Taste of light caramel with a very pronounced tart "twang". Bitter-sour palate. I like sour beers, so I got along well with this one, but I think it might be spoiled a bit. Or at least if the tartness is intentional itís a unique interpretation of the style.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
A clear golden orange beer with a small white head. The aroma is malt, corn, and grass. The flavor is slightly sweet corn and fruity hops. Very thin body, not a terrible lager.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle: Pours a light yellow with a thin white head. Aroma is doughy and bready, not much going on. Taste is a smooth lager with a slightly spicy side, possibly corriander. Easy to drink, but not very complex or interesting.

Yeasts, cereal grains, hops all encompassed by a slightly sour and bitter flavor. Couldíve gone without the sourness though. Itís easy to drink but there are better simpler tasting beers out there
