3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at brewery. Light yellow pour with a small white head. Cereal grains, musky fruit, and bread to the nose. Loaded with grains, bread, and a decent body. Pretty flavorful for a lager and a sweet finish. Light hops linger. Nice session brew.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at World Beer Festival. Pours clear pale gold. Pale grassy hop aroma and flavor. A little grainy and slightly metallic, but a solid summer beer. Doesn’t err on the side of overly corny/sweet, but still not great.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Caledonia Golf & Fish Club in Myrtle Beach. Honey gold color with white foamy head. Grassy hop aroma and flavor with a very grainy character in the finish. Decent not great, but almost any beer tastes good when you are sitting on the porch of the clubouse watching players hit over water into the picturesque 18th green.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Sampled on tap at Barley’s in Asheville. Pours a pale clear golden with a medium head. Poor head retention and decent lacing. Aroma is strongly corn with some grassy hops. Taste is grain and extraordinarily bitter grassy hops. Thin bodied. The bartender actually said "I hope you don’t like this." I didn’t. On tap for the BMC crowd I guess.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had this on tap last weekend in Charleston. Poured a very light gold, with little carbonation, and a thin white head that disippated fairly quickly and left okay lacing. Aroma was faint, and what was there was grainy and a little skunked. Flavor was more of the grain, similar like other cheap american lagers, and finish was nothing special.
Fun to try a fairly local brew, but not much else.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught at Barley’s in Asheville, left from what NachlamSie didn’t finish. Pours clear yellow with reasonable white head. The aroma is pretty sweet with quite a bit of graininess. The flavor is, well, Cheerios, with a bunch of dry, coarse, floury notes mixed in. The aftertaste is a tad carbonic. Not particularly exciting.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
draught. Yeah, this is pretty clear. It’s a little gold, but I can read the bar coaster through the glass on the other side. There is a good white head, though. Nose on this is very grainy with hints of corn and rose hips, maybe some paper. After a sip I start chuckling out loud. This tastes remarkably like cereal and it amuses me for some reason. Think Captain Crunch mixed in with a bowl of Cheerios. This is one of the grainiest, hoppiest lagers I can think of that exhibits no real bitterness. . . just paper and grains. This is an anomaly.
