2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden in color with some light white head. Maltier in both aroma and taste than expected; fairly full bodied. Lagers still rarely impress me.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This is not a good lager. There’s way too much kilned and caramel malt in this lager. Almost tastes like a brown ale. Overall, I wish brewers would stop falling in love with crystal malt.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Malty and slightly sour lager, overall body is on the watery side. Dark amber with small foamy head, initial sourness in the aroma can be off-putting. Finish is mix of sour and bitter. This one may be a matter of personal taste.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Amberish, small sudsy white head, little lacing. Sweaty stale bready aroma. Touch nutty, touch biscuity. Really nutty up front, no real sweat to speak of. Slightly bready as well. Moderate body and mouthfeel, however leaning thin. Finishes quick, very soft nutty notes linger. Pretty boring overall. Develops a mealy background after the finish that ain’t all that pleasant. Meh...

12oz bottle, thanks to my parents for picking this up for me during a road trip. Clear amber orange color. Good thin khaki head. Leaves good spread of lace. Smooth, crisp lighter carbonation. Medium body. Easy drinking. Caramel malt, hint of honey, light toast. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Good, kind of sweet amber lager. Surprised at the low rates.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This has a pretty strong caramel aroma. The body is also carmelly and sweet, really thought this was an Amber lager more than a California Common. I liked it.

On draught at the taproom. Pours a clear amber color. Rich, malty flavor with slightly dry character. Solid hop presence. Clean and nice.

Slight toasty malt and cardboard aroma. Light amber in color. A slightly less spicy version of the Desert Pils. Overall, it’s drinkable...
