3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle from Homer321 via Frank - thanks, bros! Pours a clear gold with a finger of white head that settles into a ring and an island of film, leaving some spots throughout the glass. Great big German character pops out of the glass, with straw, crackery and cereal malts, grassy and slightly spicy Bavarian hops. Light-bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and a clean but malty mouthfeel. Simple and good. Glad to finally have tried this long-time want.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy copper color with a white head of foam. The aroma is yeasty and has some banana and doughy qualities. Reminds me of uncooked bread dough in a way. A little sweet and fruity. Medium body and soft carbonation. Really nice!

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted from a 12oz. bottle. It poured a clear golden hue with minimal carbonation, a quickly dissipating, slightly off-white head, and almost no lacing. It has a grassy nose and a bland malty taste. I’m not a big lager fan to start with, but this is underwhelming.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From a 12 oz bottle poured in an English pint glass, bought at a Pick n’ Save in Milwaukee. Light wet grain aroma. Pours mostly clear copper with a thin but persistent head. Flavor is crisp and robust grain, like an effervescent multigrain loaf, with a crisp only slightly bitter finish. An excellent lager that packs a lot of flavor.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep yellow with a white head. Wonderful spicy and floral noble hop aroma. Medium body. Very slight caramel sweetness and solid malt flavor profile. Fairly clean finish with a slight hop bitterness. Really well done.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Bright orange gold pour with a quickly diminishing head of tiny white cream. Aroma is lightly grainy and yeasty. Attractive. Clean, citrusy, and lightly sweet. Tasty.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear amber with a nice eggshell head. Aroma is not strong, but tempts with fruity and yeasty notes. Apple and yeast are the main players in the flavor, while pear and a bit of hops provide backup tones. Crisp mouthfeel has decent body and lively fizz. Yokel or sophisticate, you should enjoy this one.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Pours tawny yellow, clear, with a thin but bright-white head. Clean straw, hay, and dried grasses dominate the aroma with a bit of underlying vanilla cookie malt. More chewy, moderately sweet malts come out in the flavor, especially up front, and the husky grains slowly appear as the sweetness subsides. Moderate carbonation. A nice, clean, refreshing lager.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Light gold with thick head. Nose of floral hops, light malts. Fairly clean, nice floral hop profile, medium body. No complaints...solid lager with enough hops to make me want more.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Six-pack of bottles. Creamy, fizzy, generally okay all-around, but really not a lot of flavor here -- which from the description seems to be the point. Very easy to drink and relaxed brew, but nothing to write home about.
