3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting.
Body is dark yellow to light amber.
Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain/bread, cookie), moderately hoppy (apricot, flowers), with notes of pear syrup, gum, and honey.
Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter.
Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly to moderately bitter.
Medium body, watery/syrupy texture, lively carbonation.
A bit sweet and fruity, but it seems clean and the nose is pleasant. Rather ale-like.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Got this in Wenatchie, WA at Sticks. Pours hazy orange with a big white head and good lacing. Nose of light roasted malts, some floral hops, and tropical fruit. Medium body and very smooth and clean mouth feel. The flavor is rich for a pale lager, and the floral and grassy hops, mixed with the fruit flavors, and nice bitter finish make for an outstanding lager.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transparent orange. Mild, slightly grassy hops, with a decent balance. Malt profile (oats, maybe some rye?) comes through a little more in the flavor. Quite mild, but with a good flavor. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. from chuck’s @ $4.59. This is an adjunt lager? Could have fooled me. It tastes great and the Hallertau give it a nice peppery flavor in contrast to what I would typically think of as an "adjunct lager". This is a damn fine beer.

Deep blond color; creamy head. This beer has some malt character and some dirty water too, both aroma and flavor; ordinary bitterness.
