2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle at LIC Craft Beer Festival. Dark gold pour with standard white head. Unpleasant aroma of red wine, grains, and corn. Flavor is corn, diacetyl, and rice. Soft and crisp but a bit too much corn sweetness. No flavor qualities to write home about, but I could do this at the ballpark.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear garnet with almost no, white head. Toasted malt aroma, with some ripe fruits and faint hops. Sweet, wimpy flavor, with some grape and cherry, along with pumpernickle bread. Very faint, earthy hops are barely present. Light to medium in body with lively carbonation. Finishes lightly sweet and very short, with some crispness. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at the local. A sweet medium bodied lager with a touch of spiciness near finish. Some nose of fresh bread. Well balanced and even toned. Overall it does not stand out in a crowd.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle [12oz] shared with HogTownHarry & garthicus -- c/o HogTownHarry. Pours a clear amber-gold with an average size off-white head. Aroma’s very sweet and sugary -- yuck. Flavour’s sweet and grainy along with caramel malt and very light hops. Average bodied. So average in every way, quite boring really.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice ruby amber color. I didn’t notice any aroma at all. Pleasant flavor and very easy drinking. An overall likable brew, though never anything really overly memorable. A good beer for everybody.
