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.

Bottle. Clear orangish pour with a decent sized white head. Aroma and taste are not very good, actually - vegetables, grain, minimal malt character, hops don’t stand out. Bleh.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
5/1/11. 12oz bottle courtesy Cavie! Hazy orange pour with a small off-white head that fades to a ring fast. Light aroma of caramel and a hint of sour corn. Smooth, malty flavor that lingers sour a bit as well. Interesting, not bad.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Beer of the month club. Clear golden with a white head. Aroma has some sour fruits, corny notes, some slightly citric hops notes and a decent malt character, a bit bready, with some graininess. Flavor has some sourness, light malty sweetness, citric notes and some mild bitterness. Light-medium-bodied. Sourness seems out of place, but it’s still aמ OK drinkable Lager.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(12oz bottle thanks to Cavie) clear amber, effervescent in the glass, ring of off-white head. Nose is very sweet, oddly a bit tart, and raw grain. Taste is also a bit tart, orange, lacking in flavor overall, but some buttery components here also. Thin body and thin on palate flavor, well carbonated though.

Trade with Aurelius - thanks!- new state - Nebraska! Bright sparkling medium dark golden pour with a thin white head. Pretty much of a neutral aroma, hints of spent grain and fresh lake water. Solid, crisp lager flavor with some nuttiness, a bit of honey sweetness, some graininess. Crisp and refreshing mouthfeel. Not bad at all.
