1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
An ok beer. better than the other crap-ola lagers i've had tonight, but still not worth drinking again. the light spiciness in the taste was pretty ok.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Comes in the obligatory 12 oz brown bottle..simple label.
Nice appearance for this lager golden yellow with a small but persistant pure white head..nice lacing.
I loved the aroma of this lager..one of the best of its class..nice spicy hoppiness..more than balanced by a a yummy toffee malt aroma..beautiful .
this is a full flavoured malty style lager..no pilsner here..and i love it the full sweetness of the malt is replaced eventually by a nice residual hop bitterness.
Very nice creamy smooth feeling on the tongue.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Rather crisp and slightly bitter for a lager. Ample use of hops, like other Otter Creek brews. The head fades pretty fast. More of a pilsner than a lager, due to its sharpness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a lightly cloudy golden in color, with a medium sized white head, mostly diminishes, leaving a fine film of lace. Aroma is loaded with biscuit malt, backed up with a good herbal hop presence. Flavor is pretty much the same, with a bit more of the hops noticed on the tongue. Medium body, very crisp and clean, semi-dry finish. A very nice lager.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours with a pale yellow body topped by a white lasting head with good lacing. Woody hop aroma well balanced with malt. Woody hop flavor wtih malty accents and notes of sweet fruitiness. Light bodied and smooth. This is a good lager that I would enjoy having on a hot summer day.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Deep, clear, light golden lager. Large, frothy, off-white head. Gone in a flash.
The aroma is of toffee and straw; vanilla and pistascios.
Lightly malty and balanced with slightly bitter hops. There is some clover in there as well.
Light-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Short, crisp, clean finish!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not bad for a summer thirst quencher. Pale yellow colour. Decent hop flavour in bitterness with an overall clean and smooth lager flavour.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
For a US brewed lager, this is pretty decent. Medium gold color - slightly amber. Nice white, foamy head - good carbonation in the glass. Nice malty body with a good dose of hops. Nice lager flavor - no off flavors detectable. Not an exciting style of beer, but this is an above average american lager.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This style of beer is seldom anything special, but this particular entry was quite a bit more satisfying than I expected. It was crisp and full, without the watery aftertaste present in other similar microbrewed "lagers." This beer is best served ice cold and out of the bottle on a hot summer day. Three or four in a row could go down pretty easily.
