3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Picked up a can at Julio’s on my way to EBF. Served in a Hill Farmstead wine glass.
Pour yields a bright yellow beer with a very nice white head and quite a bit of lacing on the way down. The nose brings forward mild grain plus a touch of light Noble hops. The flavor is slightly bready with some grain and hay. Not too much spicy hop flavor, but there is a decent amount of bitterness in the finish. Feel is light and only moderately crisp, though not as much as I’d like for the style. Fairly drinkable and a nice brew on a rather warm Spring evening.
Serving type: can

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A - Pours a bright hazy golden yellow color with a finger of frothy white head. The head has pretty decent retention and laces nicely down the glass.
S - Aroma is full of bread/yeasty elements mixed alongside a bit of grassy/piney hops for balance. Just a touch of malt comes through beneath.
T - Starts off with some light malt flavor with some bread flavor mixed in. This develops a bit and some spices join. Through the middle a bit of the hops come through and with some spices The finish is a mix of some hop bitterness and some yeasty flavor that lingers nicely. Very nicely balanced.
M - Medium-light bodied and fairly carbonated. Super clean and crisp mouthfeel overall. Very clean finish.
D - Very drinkable. Clean and crisp from start to end, but still enough flavor to keep it enjoyable. The flavor is really nice all around.

Aroma muted by this excessively massive head after waiting a minute,got an almost wheat like tang,almost suckerish,some grain,flavor is upfront bitterness with some floating grain again,again a wheat like tang in flavor,doesnt taste like the good German pils I’ve had,would have like to had a little more malt,I know the German style emphasizes the bitterness, but this was just to much hop

(12oz can). Pours clear golden with white head. Aroma of florals and grass. Taste is a sweet malt backbone with a definite hope bite up front and at the end. Medium bodied with slick texture. Finish is slightly bitter and has a bite. Not bad.

Pale Lager light colored light bodied beer with German nuances. Definitely a lawnmower beer, maybe the wrong season for me to sample.

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Head is white and quickly dissipates leaving almost no lacing. Color is medium hazy yellow. Nose is citrus and hops. Body is medium with a slightly oily texture with soft carbonation and an astringent finish. For those who prefer Bud, Coors, or Miller, try this. It is quaffable and a good session beer for talking sports or even theology. Enjoy!

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a slightly hazy yellow with a huge white foamy head. Aroma is slightly skunky with spices and lemon. Taste is also a bit skunky with some lemon and fruity notes. Pale malts are present, and there is a decent amount of flavor. Slightly grassy finish. Not bad, but not great.

7/14/10. My 10th in this style finally! 12oz can into a pint glass. Cloudy yellow pour with a fluffy white head that fizzes away fast. Dry grainy and slightly metallic aroma that leads to a sweet pilsner malt flavor again with a metallic hint. A bit sweet, but not bad.
