3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Nose is lightly lemony-citric but leans more toward the pale malt and herbal hop character. Pours clear deep golden with a soapy off-white head. Taste relatively dry with good, firm bitterness; lightly mineral, some fruit rind, herbal and earthy character, clean malt if simple. Has a nice lager character even if it doesn’t bring too much carbonation. Medium body, maybe a bit fuller, and I like the hops here as a change of pace, reminds me a lot of Germany

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours amber into a shaker. Off-white head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Sour biscuit and butterscotch aromas. Thin and soft with butterscotch and caramel upfront turning to rancid sour butter in the lasting bitter finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is medium amber leading up to a lingering off-white head. Great clarity. The aroma has a pleasant citrus hop character mingling with the sweet caramel malts of an amber lager. The hops tend to take control but only in a subtle sort of way. The body is about medium. The taste begins with a mildly sweet caramel malt character but the citrus, grassy hops roll in quickly and smoothly. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear light amber and a little bit of white lace. Smell of corn, malt, molasses, cinnamon and other spices. Taste is a sweet and spicy pine like. Too much treacle for my taste. Alcohol and yeast lingers. Just ok.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear burnt gold with an off white head with lots of lacing.Nose is hops. Palate is lager body and crispness with hops dominating. Indeed, it all about the hops.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12oz bottle. Pours a light amber with a white head. Not as much hops as I was hoping for but enough to qualify for the style I guess. Goes down easy and non-offensive though nothing spectacular.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a copper color with a thin off white head. Grapefruit aroma. Citrusy hop flavor throughout but lighter than a normal IPA. There was a bit of a metallic taste in the middle. Similar to Sams IPL and an alternative to sweet IPA as this one finishing a littler drier.
