3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
16-oz. can into a pint glass at my house on Nov. 4, 2012 (purchased at Vons in Mission Gorge (San Diego, Calif.) for $7.99 (with card) for a 4-pack on Nov. 4, 2012). Honey golden with 2-3 fingers of frothy white head. Good retention on the sides with foamy residue and pretty good on the top as well.
Smelled honey, corn, grains, cereal, skunk, grass and a hint of citrus hops.
Tasted pretty close to the nose, but more bitter. Got corn, grains, grass, honey, cereal and biscuit.
Medium-to-light body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Bitter abrupt finish.
Not a bad beer overall, especially for a lager, but I was hoping for something more.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz can. Pours a clear gold with white head, settles in minutes with thin lacing. Aroma is yeasty, mild barnyard, pale malt. Flavor is sweet, and malty up front, fading into mildly bitter, slight hop finish. Flavor is mild, sweet, fruity and overall fairly pleasant. Drinkable no doubt. Moderate carbonation, light to medium body, and crisp texture. Enjoyed this a lot more than the last few times I had it. One of the tastier premium lagers I’ve tried.

From a 12 oz can at a summer cookout. Pours clear with an off white head. A thirst quenching, nicely put together beer. Nothing offensive with this one. Bottoms up.

Can. Pours clear golden with white head. Aroma has toasty and sweet honey malt notes, floral and citrus. Flavors continue with toasted malt notes, sweet bread, surprisingly big citrusy and hop resiny bitterness. Basically an apa with lager strain. Good stuff.

Glad for the "Shift" to lagers on the micro level. This is just a very quaffable beer. This is a nice lager, workman like. Definite step up from the mass produced counterparts. I have had more interesting lagers, but this is a nice thirst quencher.

Nice session beer especially at the end of a day in the heat of the desert Southwest. Hopped enough to make it interesting.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 18/20
Solid session beer. Hoppy smell to it. Hoppy after taste but not like an ipa. Calm hops nothing crazy. Dope session beer if your tired of the cheap stuff.

12oz can pours a clear light copper with a large off-white head. Aroma of resinous hops, caramel, and sour dough bread. Taste similar to aroma light and drinkable and still lots of flavor!
