3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the Schlafly Tap room. Clear gold with a two finger white head, decent retention. Lightly toasty biscuit malt and honey with a bit of grassy hops. Flavor follows suit, just a touch of sweetness before finishing dry with bitterness peaking at a 2. Moderate carbonation with a medium body. Pretty tasty.

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Judging on style, Dortmunder. A-mild bread, earthiness, some faint grass and herbs. A-rich amber gold. Thin white head. T-malt is rich bread and cereal. Earth floral notes. Very minimal hop character. Very balanced and easy to drink. P-rich malt mouth feel with medium carbonation. O- a very balanced and approachable beer. I could drink many happily.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sampled at the 2013 Heritage Festival. It poured a yellow color with a white head. The aroma was of wheat with hops and a little doughy. The taste was roasty with some ginger, a little nuttiness and vegetables. Very nice.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2013 Tasted on-tap 9/17/2011 at the Hop in the City Festival in a clean half-pint taster glass. Balanced, smooth, and slightly higher gravity than a typical lager. True-to-style but forgettable. A good gateway to better craft beers, I suppose.
Tasted again on 6/15/2013 at the St. Louis Brewers Guild Heritage Fest 2013 in a sampler glass. It poured a clear golden amber colour with white foam. Faint aromas of grain and noble hops. True to style flavours too: Pilsener malt, extremely faint caramel and fruit, nicely balanced bitterness. Light body, average carbonation, crisp and refreshing. Glad to try this one again, I think I can appreciate less extreme styles like this more than I used to.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft sample at Hop in the City 2010. Pours a clear pale yellow-gold color with a small frothy white head. Aroma of pils malts, straw, apples, grains, spicy hops, and grass. Flavor of pils malts, spicy hops, straw, white grapes, apples, and cereal. Light-bodied, with subtle carbonation and a crisp palate. Not too far off from a Dortmunder Gold, which is saying a lot.
