2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy golden pour. Billowy head, leaves some nice lacing. Aroma of citrus and malt. Sweet upfront, lots of cereal, lager yeast, lemon, the finish is slightly sweet with a light lemony acidity. Not too bad, quaffable.

Pours gold into a Sam glass. Bright white head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Sour fruit aromas. Sweet white wine and yeast upfront turning to marshmallow in the abrupt finish.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Crisp and tasty lager with nice citrus notes - almost lemon peel - flavors and aromas. Finishes with a good toasted flavor. Very quenchable - I wish it was 80F and not 15F outside right now! Reminds me a bit of Victory Summer Love.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at the Columbus Winter Beerfest on 01/14/2012: This brew is a hazy yellow color with a medium thin white head that evaporates steadily. Spotty lacing. Aroma of citrus and malt. Light body with a sweet citrus character and notes of herbs and malt. The finish is fruity with a sweet aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a light hazy yellowish gold. Aroma is slightly hoppy and citrusy, with florals. Flavor has hints of scotch and yeast, quite nice lacing. Nothing special to my palate, but was not expecting much since I am not a lager lover. Quaff score ( drinkability especially with hearty enjoyment ) 3 / 10.. ugh Jim !!

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft. Cloudy gold into an English Pint. Not much head with no lace. Real odd nose, smells of leather. Maybe plastic?? Flavor is balanced nicely with sweet grassy malt, lemon citrus and a hint of a floral hop. The malt is bread like. When I was drinking this, it felt much like an APA. If this is truly brewed in the Lagering style, then this is a nice one. Way above any other lager I’ve ever drank.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I put this in an original sam adams glass. It has a very light golden tan color. Light head with a sweet yeasty a slightly malty and citrusy smell. The taste immediate was lightly citrusy sweet, malty, yeasty, and cereal. Not sour or tangy just right. A little bit like a blue moon not as citrusy. Overall a pretty good and light. It would be a great spring or summer everyday beer.

This beer was decent but not great in just about every way. For some reason, it actually reminds me quite a bit of the standard Sam Adams.
