2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. Poured a deep golden color with moderate white head and no lacing.
Smell is very light and almost undectable. Tastes of strong malt character is balanced nicely by a firm hop background. Leaves a nice mouth feel. An easy drinking beer. Very refreshing when drinking in summertime.

perhaps like an old girlfriend that was not bad but was not good either. She occasionally forgot to bath and now you would just as well leave her to fade from your memory.
yeh .... kinda like that.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Not a bad effort. Clear, dark brown body topped by a small beige head that leaves some scattered lace. Muted aroma has some dark toasted bread and spicy hops. Taste adds a note of faint chocolate to the dark bread and spicy hop. Unremarkable, but probably the best offering of the Spoetzl line.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz twist-off bottle. Pours clear, amber color. White head. Toasted malt aroma. Lager yeast. Smells like it’s a balanced beer. Flavor is kinda sharp. Rich toasted malt. Big bitter finish. Not what you’d expect from an American Dark Lager. Overall, it is drinkable. Not mindblowing.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
It’s pretty good. Heavy on the carbonation and more malt than bitter. Easy to drink, but not outstanding.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle...golden body with a light beige head...smells nice...nice malts...drinks pretty light...reminds me of Miller’s 1855 Celebration Lager, almost to a tee...a light creaminess to the body, not very complex....nice, nice, and nice...a fresh yeasty thing with a pleasant malt finish...lots of carbonation, even a smidge of lacing...quite easy to drink...the carbonation is a big presence here, which makes it creamy, but makes it hard to pick out much in the flavor

12 oz bottle pours slightly amber with a thin off white head. Aroma sweet malt and slight hoppiness. Flavor is sweet with some grassy hops almost like tea.
