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.

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.

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.

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.

Poured amber, no carbonation and no foam. Not really usual golden as other premium lagers have, but well, I guess lagers are still different. Aroma had some caramel and brisk malty grain character. Quite subtle. Taste caramelly, sort of what I could already understand from the colour. Otherwise quite watery body, simple and highly drinkable - word I am using not to say characterless. Volume beer, not bad but well, just not that interesting, had much better stuff from this brewery before.

2.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazed amber hued straw body fills the glass well. Smells like old socks. Light bready malt backbone. A little ripe pear. Not bad.
