2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle. hazed gold. first impression is nutrisweet saccharine with floral perfume esters, cloying honey malt, moderate bitterness, medium-low acid, light body but creamy / syrupy. difficult to stomach, honestly. itís so sweet, and consumed in overripe, sweet pear and apple esters, I could barely drink half the bottle before throwing it in a trash bin.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Ty (of course). Poured hazy orange with a small white head that faded within mere moments. Slightly musty smelling with slight notes of citrus (orange/lemon) and a little herbal. Tastes strongly of floral and citrus hops with some hay and light honey. Decent beer, thought I was going to hate it at first but it grew on me throughout the glass.

Drinks like a pale finishes like a lager

Pours a hazy yellow gold with an asserive full white head that lingers. Aroma is bread dough with a hint of citrus hops. Rich sweet pale malt and bisquit taste with just enough hoppiness to balance it out. Absolutely refreshing

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2012 12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy brass color with a small white head that soon dissipates to a film. The aroma is medium in strength with sweet barley, white fruits and spicy-peppery hops. The taste is similar to the nose with biscuit, bread, subtle citrus, white pepper and a touch of honey. The palate is silky smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes long and dry with lingering aftertaste of lemons and pepper. Overall: This is really good, perhaps my favorite Lager to date.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 1, 2012 It pours light amber in color and is noticeably cloudy. I could sum up the aroma with one word: fresh. It features a lemon/lime sort of scent, with a bit of spices, too, and a bready malt backbone. The taste is quite mellow, with gentle hopping and more of the citrus notes coming back, making for a mildly bitter drink that almost soothes your stomach. It is a great choice for "session drinking," or anything of the sort.

Interesting beer. Itís not all crazy strange or anything but Iím not sure how Iíd categorize it. Itís at leas as hoppy as pils but the character is really way different and more citric and American in overall character and not nearly as bitter. I might put this in the same category as, say, Prima Pils or Dortmunder Gold, neither of which are anything close to authentic for they styles they claim to be. This is a cloudy unfiltered beer so perhaps you could classify it as a zwickle or something. Its now is citric and floral hops and the taste is smooth with bready, cookie-dough malts. Very smooth, medium bodied and just the kind of thing to make you think of spring at the end of January. Itís maybe a bit thick to be truly drinkable but well put together overall.
