3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a nice malt-accented lager that drinks nicely w/o being too sweet. It’s a golden orange color veering on yellow w/ a small head of mixed bubbles. Nose and flavor both are of a sort of exaggerated nutty malt character. It’s actually kind remarkable how strongly this comes through in a lighter beer. There’s a touch of sweetness here w/ just a hint of bitterness from the hops. This is an interesting take on the style. I would normally expect it to be a bit darker in color and not quite so malty but this is good too.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle. Pours light golden with a small white head. Aroma is malty, crackers and some doughiness with notes of honey and a crisp herbal hop note. Flavor is much the same, lots of caramel sweetness, doughy, some cookie and bread, with a lightly hoppy finish. Medium body and a crisp carbonation. Pretty good beer for the style.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle - Pours clear gold with a big foamy white head. Nose is light herbal, earthy hops, mixing with some lightly toasted grain and a dab of honey. Taste is the same, with a bit more sweetness. Grain lasts through the finish, with a touch of spicy hoppiness and hint of alcohol sharpness. Decent heft in the body, with ample carbonation and a bit of slickness. Real nice beer.

Bottle at the brewery. Pours a clear yellowish gold with a white head that lasts through out the beer. Aroma has a nice hay and grain note with a hint of backing grassy notes. Flavor has a bit more earthy grass upfront with notes of hay that are joined by grains in the finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a dark gold with a slightly reddish hue. Initially held a nice medium sized head that faded slowly to lacing, Aroma was of sweet malts with a fruity hop hint. Taste was initially of sweet malt followed by a slightly nutty middle, and the finish with light to moderate hop finish. Palate was nice but not exceptional. Overall, a nice blonde lager.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a clear copper with enough white head and a sour aroma. Typical of a lager. Meh. I am thinking I don’t like lagers much. Flavor is sour and palate is apple acid. I don’t think I like lagers much at all.
