3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle… Mostly clear amber lager with orange highlights and a small, creamy, off-white head. Good, tight retention. The aroma offers lots of Munich malt and a moderate amount of chocolate malt. Also a bit nutty and biscuity. Medium-bodied with a buttery mouthfeel and stinging carbonation. The flavor has some nice toasted malt sweetness and a bitter hop bite. Finishes snappy and moderately bitter.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Rattle N Hum. Very clean nose. Soft sweet crackery malts. Nice breadiness with a firm, spicy hoppiness. Bready and slightly yeasty. The overall character is of a fresh and well-balanced lager. In contrast to most lagers, the cask really accentuates the balance in this beer. Surprisingly tasty.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2010 I assure you I will enter my entire review as soon as possible. This beer is a slightly hazy copper color with a medium thin light beige head that dissipates steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of bready malt and hops. Light body with flavors of sweet malt, resiny hops and a bit of earth. The finish is lightly hopped with a mildly bitter aftertaste. A little better than expected, but an average beer overall.
