3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at brewpub
A drinkable premium lager is kind of what you expect for the style. While nothing fancy it delivers a little flavor in a sessionable package. Order a sample then decide for yourself if it is worth a full pour.
Aroma / Appearance - A transparent golden base bubbles under layers of stiff white head. Mild lemon zest, hops, and notes of a generic pale place it in the right ballpark but not in the ’great’ category.
Aroma / Appearance - Lemons and honey drizzled over fresh white toast are a quick treat. Things fade to a velvety soft memory in a few seconds. There are better examples out there but this one is at least average to slightly above average for the style.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a very pale yellow color with a medium sized foamy white head that faded quickly and left decent lacing. The aroma was faint tangy citrus and perfume. The flavor was tart and crisp perfumey hops with a faint nutty and bready undertone. Medium length tart perfume and bread finish. Light body. Meh.
