3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle - Pours clear yellow with a thin white head. Nose is sweet honeyed corn malt, sugary with some floral hops. I’m not wild about the malt, but the hops save it. Taste is soft, with mineral, corn, sweet honey, and a floral/herbal hoppiness. Finishes with a light bitterness that sticks in the back of your throat for awhile. Light and fluffy body. Not too shabby.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a bright sunny yellow. Aromas are of grains. Typical lager stuff. The flavours are nice though. Hoppy with notes of sour and bitter lemon.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz 2013 bottle served in a lager glass.
Pours golden with excellent clarity and a massive amount of carbonatoin bubbles. The carbonation level is high, but seems appropriate for style and is softly prickly. Quite true to style. So much so that I was about to point out that this "lager" was remarkably like a European Pilsner until I paused and read the back label ("... classic Pilsener-style beer") and saw Saaz hops listed in the ingredients.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bright yellow pour big head. Aroma of honey, grapes. Tastes czechy with assertive hops over the top of lovely floral malts. pretty good... for a lager.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tawny yellow with a decent, fading white head. Plasticy settled lager steelyness to the nose. Crisp, neatly carbonated mouthfeel. Cool and clean throughout, lightly grassy hop. Tasted just as good when it was warmer and flatter. No bad.

Bottle from Appellation Wines shared at home - cheers Ash! Pours light gold with a big rocky head. Lemon citrus and lager malt nose. Some very light caramel and floral notes coming through. Light bitterness. Good summer quaffing beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a shaker. Pours clear pale yellow with small white head which dissipates quickly. Aroma is crisp hops, light body, low carbonation, and some small bubble lacing. Taste is crisp hops. This is a pilsner, not sure why it is listed as premium lager. Not interested in having this again.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice refreshing and malty. Medium body and medium carbonation. IMHO too much of a macro brewery product.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
Crisp taste, nice balance of hop and malt, light enough to drink in the sun, heavy enough to let you know you are drinking a beer. One of my all-time favorites.
