3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tall boy can from Sonoma Cellars. Pours a deep, yellowish-amber color with a big white head. Aroma is malty, bready, corn. Medium on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, corn. It’s 95F outside today, and this beer hits the spot. A very tasty lager.

There’s really nothing positive to say about this beer, other than if New Belgium’s goal was to make a dumbed-down craft beer that mimics Michelob, then job well done. Really, guys. You should be ashamed. Bring your audience up; don’t lower your aim.

A nice lager in a can! A good balance of malt and hops makes this one easy to drink - a little less alcohol and it would be perfect for a summer day.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from Malt and Vine. Pours gold with a slight white head. Aroma suggests resin. Near med body. Flavor is somewhat bready, but it’s mostly about the hop. Floral, citrus, resin - I think this has it all. Wouldn’t be surprised if this is the best "Premium Lager" in the world.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can into a pint glass pours rich gold with streams of effervescence and a dense cloud-like head that stays for the whole glass. Aroma is signature NB honeyed biscuit and fresh bread with a floral woodsy and kinda citrusy hop profile. Very fresh. Taste is surprisingly similar to a Ranger IPA I enjoyed last night, very clean fermentation profile with a lingering clean berry finish. Body is medium and chewy with high carbonation and a long bready citrusy finish. Overall, I think this would be a great lager for professed ale-heads. Very delicious, will purchase again.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can and served in pint glass: pours a golden hue with a lasting fizzy head and okay lace. The aroma has notes of veggies, pale grains, slight mango, peach and lemon with a bit of metallic notes. The taste is a bit sweeter and bready than I expected but overall there is just enough hop bitterness to keep it moderately refreshing. Some acidity and fruitiness along with a bit of DMS character. The mouth feel is lively and refreshing. I liked this more at first but as it warmed it lost me. It is simply okay.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can as shown. Pours a cloudy copper with a smal frothy off white head. The aroma is floral hop and wheat. Thin mouthfeel with a sweet citrus hop and crisp finish. Easy to drink a decent lager from New Belgium.
