1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Lightly hazed straw color with a moderate off-white head. Mild noble hops surprise the nose. Hints of overly sweet malt and hay.Sharp metallic flavors dominate early and reveal little of the malt and hops character. Simply a rather harsh pale lager that does seem to get a touch worse with each sip.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottled. A very pale almost hazy greeny gold coloured lager with no head. Thea roma is sweet and buttery with maybe a little lemon. The taste is harsh lager snatch. Tastes very carbonated although to look at it youíd never think so. A bit of a struggle to consume and certainly a struggle to enjoy.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
This bottled brew from Tampa, FL poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a softly carbonated transparent light yellow orange colored body. The aroma crisp malty and hoppy. The mouth feel was tingly at the start then faded in the crisp clean finish. The flavor was made up of thin malty hoppy notes.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden yellow with thin to no head. Taste is nothing spectacular which is typical for the style. However, fairly clean, none of the unpleasant flavors persistent in some other beers of this type. Sweet, with some mild bitterness in the aftertaste. Overall, dismissable and pretty bland but not offensive and fairly drinkable.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Golden straw yellow color with a thin white persistant head. Massively skunky aroma with hints of burning embers, musty. Flavor is mildly sweet, not as much as Iíd like for this style. I get some smoke here as well, itís light but present, quick dry finish thatís reasonably innoffensive. Bland overall, but drinkable, you could do a lot worse with this style.
