2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
"same qualities (ingredients) as the ale, just a touch better from the switch in fermentation method. still not impressive. underwhelming beer. average at best."

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at The Pub Monte Carlo in Las Vegas. Very light in the mouth with caramel and nutty biscuit flavours. Clear red to amber colour wih a slight white head. Nutt malt aromas are pleasing and this is a good all round beer without being great.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2012 Bottle. Pours a cloudy orange with a small off-white head. Aroma and flavor are fairly malty, quite fruity (cherry, grape), almost no hops, a little diacetyl. For what it is, quite nice.

Bottle. Malty aroma. Smooth taste, fairly balanced. Enjoyed it quite a bit, wanna grab another one and get better notes on it. 4.5% alcohol.

simple but not great tasting. not very sweet, kind of bitter, and barley sour. weak palate: sub-par malt, apple, gas. part of that wack monthly beer club.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle. clear bronze body, white head, patchy and foamy. nose is mostly clean: toasted barley, toasted wheat, light caramel resin, light semi-dried/semi-green hop cones. yeast is very mild, mostly doughy, mostly soft. moderately chewy, somewhat resinous towards the finish, has a fullness or roundness that I typical don’t like to see in lager, but as far as crispness, the lagering is evident and for the most part adds rather than affects/subtracts from the beer. overall not too bad.

Sampled at the taproom on 8/6/10. Pours clear amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma of pale malt, lager yeast and noble hops. Flavor is malt and moth balls (!) with some noble hops in the finish.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served from a 12 oz bottle thanks to JT. The appearance is a slightly hazy gold with a light brown hue. Smaller white head. The aromas are grainy with a light hop edge. The flavors are grains, a mild grape candy, light hop doses. A better premium lager if you are into one.

Nice lager from this brewery. A distinct grainy character-- this is not a macrobrew. pretty good balance, not too bitter, but not boring, either.
