3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the Crescent Moon. Pours a dark straw color with a medium bright white head. This might have been Storz reborn, except that it lacks the corn and has an unexpected dry hopping finish. Not a smooth beer, but definitely has a manly grainy flavor. Mild citrus tartness is an undercurrent. A good tailgate beer I suppose.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft at GABF. I was very excited when I saw this one, just because you don’t see many pre-pro lagers out there. Pours a gold with stiff white head. Nose is vegetal, cabbage and maize. Some faint herbal hop notes come through, but the DMS is a bit offputting. On tasting, it’s a bit cleaner, but still vegetal with maize being a driving component. Bitterness works but the hops that they are proud of seems really restrained. I dunno, maybe a bad batch?

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep golden almost orange with a good head and some lace. The aroma is hay and noble hops with a mild biscut character. The flavor is very crisp with a nice hoppy bitterness and some grassy mild earthiiness. One of the best pale lagers I’ve had.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Gold body that has a slight haze to it. Average sized whitye head that falls quickly.
Light malt aroma, sweet corn and faint hops.
A watery palate delivers a brew with little flavor. Some sourness. Effervescent.
