3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rich bready grain aroma,but of a quality bread more breadsmith then Wonderbread, also a hint of sweetness,like the bread had some honey applied to the top as it came out the oven. Flavor is again that inticing grain flavor ,which a tinge of sweetness,, that grain is comparable to the better German lagers,then any say American lager,little teasing of hop spiceness in the swallow,flavor is sustained the entire swallow,doesnt flee the third second of palate contact,remains full and satisfying throughout the glassful,surprisingly smooth all the wayto finish which gives it more of an ale type quality. Personally ,which it would finish a little more crisper, to give it a more thirst quenching completion,instead of leaving that slight ale like coat on the tongue, but its still 16ozs of summer goodness. Recommended

Can. Pours a golden with off white head. Taste and aroma don’t stray far from just regular malts.

Better than the infamous fat tire. Actually tastes pretty similar but with a lighter mouthfeel, more hops and less roasted flavor. Decent.

6/XII/14 - 12Fl. Oz. can from De Hopduvel (Gent) @ home - BB: (smudged ink)/FEB/15 (2014-1468)
Clear pale orange beer, creamy off-white head, pretty stable, adhesive, leaving a nice lacing in the glass. Aroma: malty, hay, grains, caramel, some ripe summer fruits, bit sweet, hint of exotic fruits. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: some citrus, sweet malts, more citrus, bit of caramel, pretty bitter hops. Aftertaste: exotic fruits, pineapple, citrus, grassy bitterness. Very nice lager!

Can’t argue with success, right? NB has crafted a national presence based on its unique beers. Problem is, marketing seems to dominate its more recent creations rather than brewing. Shift is way too hoppy. A lager should be quenching and easy to drink. This isn’t.

High drinkability quotient and even a little real flavor. Pours golden amber with decent head and lacing. Crisp barley finish with more hops than the average lager. Very good for a lager. Can I found in the fridge at work.
