4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Have noted rated much other than top 50 or mead recently but this one was such a nice surprise. Pours nice and light. Wonderful biscuity malt aroma with notes of hops. Flavor was wonderful malt, biscuity, corn, and cereal with a wonderful mild sweetness. A good does of hops had to be used as there were strong wonderful grassy notes pushing through all that malt. It finishes with a bit of bitterness, in an other wise mildly dry finish. Really hit the spot on a hot Florida night. We need more lagers like this one. They are such wonderful beers when done right. Wish I had more. Thanks for the share Timo. Really really enjoyed this one.

En god lager då den har en betydande beska. Bärstensfärgad med en blommig doft. Maltig och lite knäckig smak.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 12, 2012 Vague aroma of caramel malt and grassy hops. The flavor is grainy with a vaguely stale tone of caramel malt and some grassy and floral hops. Drinkable but not a particularly good beer!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly amber beer, creamy, airy head. Spicy and herbal hoppy notes, fresh grass, some lemon. Ai hint of yeasty esters. Dry, clean malts with ai hint of caramel and breadiness. Medium sweet flavor, rich malt taste and balancing bitterness in the finish. Very drinkable oily texture. Very nice lager with rich palate.

Det här är en bra lageröl, med en relativt kraftig och skarp beska. Humlen kämns som en blandning av gamla och nya humlesorter. Slutsats: en god legeröl.

Label looks the same but the name was "East River Spring Lager". Thin body with an ample amount of grassy hops and perfumy grape fruit nuances. There is also a shy floral sweetness that is really only noticeable in the lingering aftertaste. Not bad.
