2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
(22 oz bottle: $3.29 at Bottleworks in Seattle, WA) Yeah baby, a bomber of pale lager, I canít wait! It pours a slightly hazy, light golden color, and is topped by a tall, very bubbly off-white head. The occasional carbonation bubble steps on the accelerator and speeds to the surface. The aroma is so grassy, itís making me sneeze, honest. A moderate lemony, and stinky/grainy lager aroma is right behind the grassiness, and isnít bad, but not particular appealing either. The flavor is actually quite citrusy and tart though, and is the dominant flavor from start to finish. The light graininess is pretty much overrun by the citrus, and that might not be a bad thing. Still, though, Iím not really digging having a bomber of a mildly citrusy lager. Light bodied, but clean and somewhat crisp. Not doiní it for me.

Slightly hazed, yellowy orange appearance, excessively foamy. Sweet malty aroma, grainy. Dryish sharp palate, but uneventful flavor. Malt accentuated with slight honey sweetness. Pretty simple for a micro lager.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22oz bottle. Medium orange color. Medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is a touch grainy, fruity and sweet. A medium bodied Pale Lager. Malts are fruity and sweet, touch grainy and grassy. Mild hops, only slightly bitter. A touch sweet and perhaps a little cereal-ish. Very drinkable. Nothing bad, but nothing special either. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is sweet.

Stopped by the brewery. The tap room wasnít open yet so I grabbed this at the general store. Roslyn is only about one block long. Hazy amber colour with soft carbonation. The aroma has a slight malt accent. Fairly light on the palate, with subtle hints of caramel. The finish is rather quick. Nothing wrong with this beer, but nothing particularly right either.

Bottle: Amber color, creamy off-white head, light lacing. Nose of thin husky grains. Light flavor, more husks and a bit of a metallic taste. Darker than most lagers. Finishes thin. Thanks Josh!
