4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle conditioned - pour slowly to prevent the cloudiness. Clear medium gold color, lively carbonation and thick head of fluffy white foam. Clumpy lacing. Mild malt and a little grassy hop character in the aroma. First sip was much more hops than anticipated - masking the malt. Subsequent sips still have a citrus and flowery pungency with a mellow pilsner malt character well behind. Smooth body with long citrusy and ever so slightly spicy hop aftertaste. Bottle #714 of 1000 purchased Aug ’07 in Rochester Hills.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Slightly hazy light gold in color with a medium white head. I don’t get much for aroma, just slight floral, yeast, and bread notes. Thin body and medium carbonation. A funky sweet, bready taste up front balanced by a crisp bit of citrus and short-lived bitterness. Interesting and enjoyable.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tasted and smelled vastly different when first opened, had an almost Belgianesque yeasty feel to it. I let it sit for a while and it really opened up, or the bad stuff dissipated. Big sweet light sugary maltiness with a fair amount of higher alcohols. Grassy earthy pine sol hops. Not a fan, but better the longer it sits.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a golden yellow with a small white head. Aroma is bread and grass, with some fruit. Flavor is sweet bread, some grass and earthiness, and a touch of fruit. Has a thick body feel. Decent.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has lots of straw and hay with a bit of grain and earthiness underlying. Flavor has lots of bread and straw with a hint of grass in the finish.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very mild malt aroma. Pours a clear light yellow with a thin white head. Starts with a slightly sweet malt aroma, with a big punch of hops, lots of pine and grassy notes. Very nice bitter finish, and light bodied. This is a really easy drinking beer, with the alcohol really well hidden.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A decent enough imperial lager. Grassy notes with a crisp finish. Nothing more but nothing less than you might expect

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not much of a scent. A hint of sweetness and a hint of grass. Pours a light gold where you can see the carbonation bubbles rising. No real head, just something that reminds me of dish soap, Hop presence hits the tongue first, but then finishes like bread. It is good for a pilsner or lager (not my styles of choice), but not something I would seek out.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Drakes party center. Pours golden with a white head. Leaves a lot of lacing. Not a ton on the nose. Tastes of straw on the tongue. There’s a hint of bitterness at finish to keep things tidy. It’s sneaky big at 7% and real easy drinking. Solid!
