A very good lager. Reminded me of the Czech pilseners Pilsner Urquell and Czechvar. Very easy to drink, with a decent malty flavor and notes of grass and hay. Good hop presence gives it some citric like bitterness. All round a very drinkable beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Medium golden color with a big time head and pretty good lacing. The aroma was mild but pleasant with a hint of caramel and a meadow hoppiness. The first thing that struck me was how sweet this beer tasted for a lager. Slightly acidic on the tongue with the hops catching up with the malt and a dryish finish. I have mixed feelings about this one-it was sorta interesting but seemed thin. Came in a brown bottle though, which is a step in the right direction for this brewer.

Nice, light golden pour with a small, lingering white head. Bubbly. Smooth aroma, somewhat citrusy. Light dry taste, but some floral hops as well. Cleam and crisp, nice finish as well.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice golden color, ample white head. Attractive bubbles throughtout. Aroma is of dry grain dust. The flavor is better, starts with a very gentle pale malt sweetness and finishes with an understated zest floral hoppiness. This beer is way too weak for me, if I was eating something right now I wouldn't be able to taste the beer at all.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Straw color with abundant carbonation. Aroma of butterscotch and grassy hops. Buttery flavor as well. Lots of diacetyl in this puppy. I enjoyed this less than any other brew from Samuel Smith.
