2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. Very drinkable lager, but a lager nontheless. Pours an attractive crystal clear rich gold with a small white head. Aroma is cereal grains. Thinner palate with plenty of carbonation, and the taste is a simple yet somewhat pleasant grain and cereal bit. Doesn’t suck.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle from a variety pack. Pours clear golden, with a quickly disappearing head. Nothing worth noting. Reminds me of a basic lager, not great. Not really even good. Won’t have again.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A - Poured a quarter-finger head. Look of the brew is completely lager. Not much going on. Head is gone after about 10 seconds.
S - Some honey, bockiness, wheat and some bread smells are coming through. None are too strong though.
T - More honey and bock tastes are coming through. The malt itself is deep but the aftertaste is like a Miller High Life. It’s a very disappointing taste but starts out okay.
M - Lots of carbonation while swishing but not much to speak of in general
O - I’d take this beer fishing. IT’s not great but I feel it would be better if served in a can.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
From notes: Pours clear golden amber with a thin, 1-finger white head. Aroma is earthy, with perhaps a touch of citrus. Body is medium-to-thin. Very mild flavors. Yeasaty, with a slight citrusy note. nothing special.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Gold pour with foamy white head and lace. Aroma reminds me of flat wheat even though I know it can’t be. A flavor I associate with corn followed by a bit of semi sweet malt and a wee tad of bitter. Light bodied and foamy. Not very much.,

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a thin white head, with some lacing, over a clear gold (SRM 5) body....nose is light cereal, hints of hop spice....taste is cereal, touch of biscuit, finishing with a light bitterness....mouth feel light, carbonation high. This is a light beer with minimal aroma, flavor and complexity and is quite typical of this brewery. The best that can be said is that it did not smell or taste bad. BJCP 4/3/9/4/4

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark amber. Fast, white head. Aroma: Grains, caramel. Flavor: Grains, malt, caramel, hops and some spices I cannot identify. Unusual to the finish and difficult to rate. Going by the ratings, this is a beer you will either like or hate and I have never seen opinions differ so much. I for one do not like grainy lagers but I like this one so I guess I have to "Drink my words!"

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear copper with thin white head and decent lacing. Aroma of malt, malt, and more malt. Taste is almost sickeningly sweet with no hoppy balance at all. Not impressed in the least.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not a bad beer. It poured a deep golden body, lively with bubbling, and a tall white head. The aroma was moderately sweet, grainy, with a quiet earthiness. That pretty well describes the flavor, as well. It finished on a dry earthy note. Repeatable.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma and appearance where nothing to talk about. Taste was typical until the hops kicked in. It’s a nice summer beer that I’m trying in December.
