2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours golden with next to no head. Aroma of apple cider and prunes. Tastes like lager with a stewed apple kick. Mediocre at best.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a pale yellow with a quickly dissipating white head. The nose is sweet cereal. The palate is medium thin body - lager body. The taste is light malt with some bitterness. So, it’s "organic" and then it’s pasteurized. How "organic" is that?

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma: Semi-sweet honey cereal without much hop presence; maybe a little lemony. Appearance: Still yellow pour with a ring of white head. Flavor: Sweetness pares back a little with slightly toasted honey cereal; just a little lemon towards the finish. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, flat carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Liked this alright, but actually preferred the regular organic lager.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A very simple and average piwo with some yeast and rye upfront. Watery taste with nearly no taste. Some butter in the back rising the potential. Still a simple one.

Has a light straw golden appearance - fizzy initial appearance, nice aroma, taste very refreshing and very enjoyable for a lager as not my usual choice

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Every country makes ’em it would seem. Even a legendary brewery such as this can’t make it taste much different than typical Macro fare. It’s cleaner and less corny, shitty and terrible but it still hearkens towards that classic bland taste. Being shallow gained this beer some points because it looks as good as a typical Lager, premium or otherwise, is ever going to look. Lightly spicy and grassy hops, cereal and some nondescript malt sweetness round out smell and taste. I would take this over a Macro any day but let’s be honest, it’s still a Lager-Boy football beer in a fancy bottle.
