3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Rattle n Hum. Pours a mostly clear, sparkling yellow with a medium, fizzy white head. Quite sweet aroma with lightly roasted malts, bread and crackers, light grass and florals. Flavor is very sweet, with strong malt and bread notes and mild hops. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Finishes sweet with a nice, crisp bite. The overall impression is sweet but I didn’t find it overly so. Good stuff.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2011 Dear Pretty Things,
If you’re going to charge someone $8 for a bomber of any sort of pilsner-style lager, please make it worth their while. I bought this beer in full-support of the artisan efforts of Dann Paquette, expecting a nuanced and unique twist on a classic style, in the likes of Jack D’or or Baby Tree. Instead, I got what appeared to be a slightly boozy, hoppier than average, slightly oxidized strong pilsner. I like pilsner, especially for the thrist-quenching lawnmower-beer properties you advertise on the label. However, when I get 7% of lager sugars, the last thing that comes to mind is mowing the lawn on a hot day. Instead I think of spending time at a cold, wet German bus stop or taking a nap in the winter. Kind of insulting for $8, don’t you think?
Postscript: To be fair, Wakefield Liquors is apparently charging well above suggested retail here.

22oz bottle in a lager glass. Pours transparent golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of nuts and oats with a slight hoppiness. If you could rate this beer for being a lager, it’d get a much higher score. Flavor of oats/bread with some hops and the typical lager finish. An incredible lager, but still a little light on texture for my tastes.

A good premium lager on tap. Gave me a golden color with a 2 finger head. The aroma was a bit citrus but also got that slight skunk funk which is just kind of nice in the right kind of beer. Got more cloying in the taste but the bitterness was the main feature here. Enjoyed to the last drop.

Bottle from Capone’s and CAH. Pours chill hazy gold with 2f white head. Nose is pale malt, hopcitrud, some fruit. Tastes very malty and citric, bready, somewhat cloying, with hops, and a floral metallic slight tartness late. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle, batch 2. Clear pale amber with a brief white head leaving a film. Nose is grass and dough with a hints of toffee; subtle but nice. Medium light with crisp carb that softens. Taste is sourdough, parsley and lime peel. With the heat recently i’ve actually been craving a premium lager. This really hit the spot. Wish you could get sixers of this for under $10.

On draft -yellow with a good white head. Aroma was hoppy, followed by plenty of hoppy bitterness. I would have guessed this as an IPA or a strong, yet light colored American Pale Ale. It had a good deal of bitterness, but on the other hand, hid the alcohol well.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear gold into a shaker. Bright white head with good retention recedes to hug rim. Sweet bread and alcohol aromas. Sweet with upfront caramel turning hot in the lasting roasted hop finish.

Draught from R&H. POured an amber. SOme hops and regular taste. Kind of unremarkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear yellow with a small white head. Aroma of sweet grassy hops, bready malt. Flavor of bitter bready malts, some stale cardboard, light spices. It’s ok but not very flavorful. I guess it lives up to its name (lawnmower beer).
