1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Sampled from a bottle,
this lager had a clear red-gold pour with some brown at the sides of the glass, and this beer gave a one finger very faint off-white head that receded to few little islands and thin ring, there was little to no lacing on the glass,
there were aromas of toasted malt, some toasted bread, malt sweetness, and some vegetable like off-ness,
it had flavors of some thing like toasted malt, a little bread and bread sweetness, some vegetable off-ness and alcohol flavor,
there was a little hop bitterness,
the mouth feel was light with little to any creaminess, average carbonation,
the aroma and flavor of this drink were off, it had a vegetable off-ness that I noticed in this brewers other beers, it smells and tastes dirty,
the best thing about this beer is how it looks and that was so-so.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of faint caramel, fruit, and grass. It pours a transparent amber with a small off-white head that quickly fades to a thin film. The flavor starts with lightly fruity with some faint toasted caramel/toffee. The finish has just a touch of grass. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, the aroma is a little lacking, but it’s pretty tasty and very sessionable.
