3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is classified as a pilsener on this site as of May 2014. It is a bit dark for that--more of an orange than yellow or golden--but the taste is kind of close I suppose. I’d say this resembles a cheap American lager as much as anything. and a good one at that. (I am a fan of the style so do not mean for that to be a backhanded complement.) It is crisp w/ just a touch of toffee like malts w/o being thick or sweet. The carbonation borders on being too vigorous but as it is it works pretty well and helps keep the palate crisp. A slight lemony fruit not comes out in the finish, which increases as the beer warms in the glass a bit. This isn’t a world beater but it is crisp and blanced, a nice choice for the summertime.

Pours a bright copper with a thin white head; sparse lacing. Nose is grainy, plenty of malt, with notes of spice and nut. Taste is sweet malt with a a nice hop bite. Slight corn and grass notes come through on the palate. Light medium body, lively carbonation. A very respectable lager.

Pours a crystal clear gold, nice white head, great lacing. Great malt flavor, clean lager yeast, german hops and a nice balance between sweetness and dryness. This is a good lager but it wasn’t what I was expecting.

A pretty easy drinking lager. Bread and cereal on the nose, with just a bit of fruit. Malty and roasty on the palate. Finish is pretty clean.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at The Spot. Classic noble hops, spicy, on top of a macro-ish grain bill. Filtered orange-tan body. Classic beer-beer in a lot of way, pretty insipid, but OK. Not off or bad, just an old school lager...don’t think this is a Pils. No comparison to the original, which was brighter and hoppier. Some decent Munich malt depth.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted from bottle. Pours a nice clear amber with thick rocky white head that really lasts. Aroma of grass, straw and hay with a little sweet smell. Taste is a grass and grains with some sweet flavors. Pretty well balanced with a nice mild bitterness throughout. Medium bodied with a crisp and effervescent mouthfeel. Definitely a good pilsner.

This beer tastes like figs, dates, prunes, raisins, some other old dirty fruits. Not my thing.

Thanks HisBoyElroy. Pours a dark amber rust color. Smell is a bit off. Taste is pretty refreshing. After taste is also a bit weird. Can’t quite pinpoint the flavor.
