2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours an orange copper color with little to no aroma. Taste is bland, simple malt flavor. A mild bitter aftertaste that had little to no flavor. A dry beer witha decent drinkability but no complex flavors at all

Typical grassy, bready lager, but doesn’t really work for me. First sip OK, but goes downhill fast. The finish is watery and sour.

No. Now I need 73 more letters. Clear orange. Funky aroma. Bitter funky taste. Will not buy again.

POurs hazy straw with sweet notes of malt that show off very light hints of hops. It drinks smooth and has a flavor from the malt that seems distracting. Better than your mass lagers.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: MAY 10, 2014 Definitely a letdown. While it’s ordinarily futile to have high expectations for these types of beer, they still can be fun. Sadly, this one didn’t have a lot to offer. The taste is even enough, but it’s underwhelming. This beer claims to have a lot of hops but they’re positively tame on the tongue and virtually nonexistent in the aroma. If you want to enjoy a "Pre-Prohibition Lager," Coors does it better with Batch 19. It pains me to say that about a beer from my home state, but there it is.

Hazed amber hued straw body fills the glass well. Smells like old socks. Light bready malt backbone. A little ripe pear. Not bad.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Darker gold with white head and visible carbonation. Malty nose but I also smell something akin to rotten fruit (very very faint), or could it be a Bret influence?. There is a toasty malt flavor, almost dry flavor upon first taste. It’s almost smokey and a bit odd, although I can appreciate this unique twist. Some citrus/lemon flavor (the hops?). Doesn’t really go together but separate it makes an interesting experience. Given you don’t drink flavors in silo’s I find this a bit of a confusing beer. Upon further tasting, this really does seem to have a bit of a sour Bret side to it. Not sure what to make of that interpretation.

Pours a clear gold. Aroma is malty with a slight hint of pine and citrus. Taste is quite light and malty. Overall a nice lager.

This is the kind of beer you drink hoping for Matt O’Hanlon to make a play. I was expecting something terrible, but instead it was a very middle of the road drinkable beer. Not much flavor, but not offensive either. I would never seek this out, but if someone hands one to you it is acceptable to drink.
