3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft. I have to render unto this beer its props for being, usually, the best choice you have available in most restaurant bars <i color=CC0011>(and a fine Chicago pizza scarfin' establishment like Giordano's should know better than to use iced-over glasses). Has a nice dark gold color, darker than any megabrew, under the usual lager head. The malt is very evident, almost but not quite a caramel aspect, again better than megabrewed "barley pop." Hop flavor is nicely balanced, bitterness doesn't really assert itself until after you swallow. Many beer fans have kind of a love-hate relationship with Jim Koch, but this is still the beer that makes his rep.

473 ml can from the LCBO.
Appearance: Pours a
clear amber with lots of billowing white head. Retention is good and it leaves behind a ton of lacing.
Bread, malt, biscuit.
Creamy with average carbonation.
Overall: I’m not a big Lager fan but this is decent. Lots of malt coming through and it has this nice creamy mouthfeel.

Bottle from Rehills Newcastle. Really tasty lager - very malty and robust, but not too heavy either. One of the best

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The things going for this beer is a decent body and some bitterness. However the bitterness is somewhat astringent and the body lacks character. Better than the standard American pale lager, but needs more depth.

Delicious lager with plenty of taste. Fairly light, with an appealing color and a soft palate. Full of flavor and somewhat fruity.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ambar clara algo turbia. No tiene demasiado aroma, pero más que las lager convencionales: té, malta y algo de naranja. Cuerpo medio, alta carbonatación y un sabor muy sabroso y aromático, floral, naranjas, pan... Y final seco y amargo. Otro buen ejemplo americano de lager lupulada, de rico sabor.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle BBE: Jan ’16. Well-chilled. Pours a bright copper with minimal loose white head. Low intensity aroma, noticeably dank, wet cardboardy, a little metallic (iron/rust). Some toasted cereal notes and piney hop aromas prevail over time. Both a light sweetness and bitterness to taste - pleasant - a little tea-like. Not thin, but more medium-bodied than the full-bodied description. Medium-low carbonation and a smooth texture with no real finish. Overall the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Bought from a supermarket so perhaps not in the best condition.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Overly malty and sweet with a distinct bitter aftertaste. Amber color with an off white head. Not very good, but not bad.
