3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted 8/15/10. Sampler from the Brewpub. Filtered with a golden hue. Trace head. Toasty aromas with undertones of caramel and mild esters. Medium bodied with a toasty malt bill and a dry finish. Good malts and crafted just like it should be!

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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer pours a golden colour, with a big white head. Aroma is pleasent, fruity and smells very fresh. Scattered lacing all around the glass. Flavors are of apple, pear and lemon. I thought it was a great heavy lager, lots of flavor and it definately fills you up.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle on the RBSG 2012 bus. I get a weird apple juice character from both the aroma and flavor. German malts and noble hops? Not so much.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at 3 Cellars, I enjoyed this. I was very thirsty at the time ,and this went down as nice as could be. Grainey aroma and flavor of a good German lager, slight bit of honey sweetness to make it interesting and insure that you don;t chug it,clean satisfying aftertaste. Whats not to like

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.

UPDATED: OCT 13, 2010 I do not for the life of me remember ever drinking this one. But the bottle was in my collection, so I must have, a long time ago.
