3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle, thanks to Jim. My bottle was a gusher. The beer was served in a footed pils glass that once belonged to my grandfather. Hazy golden color with a large rocky head. Sweet, bready malt and floral aroma. Full bodied would be an apt description, but the bitterness at the finish keeps it nicely balanced. Light, cracker-like malt and some pleasant floral hops in the flavor. Clean fermentation characteristics. A nice beer on a hot day. Simple and enjoyable, truly more than the sum of it’s parts.

Pours opaque orange with a foamy beige head that fades leaving spotty lacing and a small ring around the glass. Aroma of mild citrus, caramel and nut. Taste is full for a pale lager with grain, caramel, nut, mild hops. Body is more full also than a typical pale lager. Pretty good stuff.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy amber gold with an ok foamy white head. Mixed aromas of light fruit and spicey grass. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Flavor is floral/fruity/grassy over pale malt. Finishes nicely bitter. Damn tasty lager.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty floral, slightly fruity aroma and flavor. Cloudy yellow. Not bad but nothing worth noting either. A bit too lagerish.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pale straw color with a fluffy white head, diminishing head. Scents of mineral water and pale malt. Perhaps a bit if citrus in the background. Wow, who put beer in my mineral water. Lots of mineral water characteristics with a hint of malt taking second stage. Interesting quencher. Seems made for a hot summer day.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Received a 22-oz bomber via trade with 5000. Pours a semi-clear golden pale colored brew with a decent white head that even has some nice retention and spotty lacing. Aroma of golden grain malt, some citrus, grassy hops and a touch of lemon zest. Taste is light to medium bodied, some carbonation with flavors of golden grain malt, some citrus and grassy hops and a touch of pear. Finish is light, crisp, a little grassy hop character with a mild bitterness that slowly disappears.

The aroma is sweet, but the flavor is not overly sweet. This is a pleasant beer, mild, crisp and refreshing. Very well balanced. If I’m looking for a relatively light beer, this is a good choice - certainly one of my favorite domestic lagers.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden colored brew with a thin head. Aroma is rather light with touches of pale malts and grain. Crisp light grainy flavor with a clean finish. Not a lot here, but clean and better than BMC.

I had this during the World Cup 2006 in Seattle. It was a decent all around. Amber colour, large frothy white head. somewhat grainy at times but a distinct pear aroma smooth long finish with a touch of hops.
