2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. A dark golden beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of straw, metal, and hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw, metal, honey, ahd hops, leading to a dry metallic finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Pours clear, on the dark side of golden, with a white head. Aroma is skunky at first, but once that clears it moves into honey, pale malt, toasty biscuit, some herbal hops. Flavor is quite light at first, opening up into toasty biscuit, honey, herbal hops. This is really just okay.

Emacgee shared a sip with me. Thanks bro. Why did they change the recipe here? I liked the first one much better. This one is much sweeter and grainy, with less dry, herbal, grassy flavors that I loved in TWL#1. Oh well.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a nice clear honey color. Very little head, slight lacing. Aroma is of hay and light malt. Flavor is light and very crisp. Palate is great, some liveliness but not too fizzy. Overall a highly drinkable lager. I would love to relax with one of these on a hot summer day. Thanks to meisterbrauMHB for this!

Thanks ughsmash. Pours a sharp clean golden amber with one finger of creamy eggshell white head. Nose is very bready and malt forward. Lots of herbal hops and a little bit of saccharine sweetness. Malty sweet flavor with a slightly musty and herbal flavor. Medium body with a soft carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Shared courtesy of the kind souls in the Tampa Crew. Pours clear orange with a white head. Nose is grain, caramel, yeast, slight bread, and just a nice malt presence with a subtle hint of the lager yeast strain. Flavor is similar- nice malt profile with grain and bread in the flavor with lager yeast in the finish, but unobtrusive. I could drink this by the gallon. I guess I am finding that it is not the style I dislike as much as I dislike so many examples of the style.

Great strong sweet aroma of corn, rice, light malt, and hops. Flavor is crisp, light, sweet, fresh, hoppy. Palate is light but with a long sweetness.

Pours a clear amber orange. Slightly sweet, almost apple aroma. Soft taste of sweet malts, that fades with a mild hop bitterness. Very drinkable.
