2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not sure what the plan is here. Trying to outdo the absolute masters of the spot market beers? Impossible, except if you get really lucky, win the lottery. Aroma is odd fruit and grain. Appearance is nice head/lace, but pale yellow color. Flavor is grain, corn, carbonic tang some bitter. Body is a bit thin. Forgettable.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This is a style I rather enjoy but they try to put a craft brew twist on it and it is too much. Specifically, they went overboard on both the hops and the malty sweetness. In any case, this is an orange yellow beer and nearly headless. It smells of pine and earth and tastes sweet and lightly bitter. This is very heavy on the palate for a lower gravity lager and mild in carbonation, which just doesn’t work. I am not quite sure what they are going for w/ this one but this is just a bit off kilter and in a more delicate style that can be disastrous.

Head dissipated before I had a chance to look at it. Strongest flavor is water, but had notes of earth, citrus, and hops. Like watery Miller Lite.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap at Dublin’s. Murky golden pour. Nose is light fruity malts mixed with generic lager malt/wet malt. Flavor is typical pale lager malt with subtle fruity/orange undertones. Unfortunate finish of litght butter. Trailing lager malt/butter. Lightly slick on the palate. Meh.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a pale gold with a small white head. Aroma of grain and malt. Taste is malt, corn, some fruit, some hops, and some skunk. Not quite average.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from 12oz bottle, wierd name and wierd label, oh well I suppose, pours a pale yellow with a soapy white head, aroma is pretty musty with a little bit of metal mixed in as well, ugh, flavor is of slight cracker and a little bit of fruit in the finish, pretty bland and boring through out, Oso, you can do so much better than this.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle thanks to nuplastikk: pours a clear pale golden with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet pale malty nose with some earthy noble hops. Starts with decent fullness and effervescent carbonation with mild pale malty sweetness well-balanced with a crisp herbal hoppy bitterness before a drier finish. Pretty true to style and drinkable.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12 oz. bottle from Christmas gift sampler.
Ar: Aroma is straight corn, maybe a touch fruity? Really not at all inviting.
Ap: Pours a clear light straw with a 1" frothy head that dissipates fairly quickly and does not leave much lace.
T: Slightly fruity body with moderate sweetness. Corn and a touch of bread dough. Little to no bitterness on the finish.
P: Medium to thin body with some stickiness and strong carbonation.
O: Not into this at all, really not an enjoyable beer.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2012 Bottled at The Branding Iron in Wisconsin Rapids. Nice golden color, half inch head that does not last long, no lacing. Grainy, but slightly skunk like aroma. Tasted clean, nothing special. Easy drinking, but suspect a few might leave a pretty good headache. Clean enough, no mouthfeel, no aftertaste. Pretty average and underwhelming.

Average Lager with nothing too special to add to the party. Finishable for me, wouldn’t run out to buy. Not horrible.
