2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale gold with decent white fully-diminishing head. Mild hops in the aroma and flavour and some light bitterness. An unexciting thisrt-quencher.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured a nice golden yellow, with a white foamy head. The first few sips I had a hard time getting past - it tended toward the bitter taste I associated with beers I drank in college or high school. But over time it did develop some complexity of taste, and was a very enjoyable beer which I enjoyed. A definite step up from the big three - more body, more flavor, nicely hopped. Definitely detected some fruit.

I remember a recent RB poll asking if you knew a beer sucked, would you drink it anyway, just to rate it. Thats the thought that went through my mind as I opened this puppy up. Looks like budweiser, smells like dough. Head settled a bit too quick for my liking. Can ya tell Iím stalling till this warms up a bit? Not bad as lagers go but this isnít far off from the Big 3 either. Otter Creek ought to be ashamed of themselves. Thats all Iíve got to say about this stuff.

Bottle, from Julioís. Bottled 7/12/04. Good nose, biscuity,yeasty,toffee,fruity maybe apple or pear. Clear pale yellow gold color. Small head that faded quickly. Sweet flavors, same as aroma, but with a little bitterness. Thin body, kinda creamy. Clean drier finish. Some linguring fruity maltiness. Not bad. Easy drinking. A definate lawnmower.Give to someone who is ready to try more than the big three.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
The hopping is perfect, giving just the right amount of refreshing aroma in the aftertaste. It finishes beautifully. A crisp clean lager that Iíd drink any day. Iím perplexed by the existing ratings, donít believe them. Try this beer or you will never know what youíre missing. Even among other craft brewed all malt beers, this stands out for its enjoyability, and isnít that what beer is all about?

Dark gold, sloppy white head. Spicy, bready aroma. Clean and citrusy flavored, with a slightly herbal hop bite. Nice and easy to drink.
