Can. A deep gold with a thick fluffy head. The nose is floral hops & crisp malts. Body is light to watery. The taste is sweet, malty, honey, light hops & a hint of diacetyl. It's a decent lager.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (22oz): somewhat cloudy darkish golden. Not bad for a lager, but I am not normally fond of lagers. Medium body.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Color is cloudy straw gold. Pours a thin white head with some lacing. Aroma is bread hops and some faint banana / spice. Taste is biscuity and citrus, body is thin. Has a hint of spice on the finish. Pleasant and light but a bit more bitter than I tend to like.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught. Pours a clear and very dark gold color with a small white head on it. Nose is very light, with just some slight corn elements to it and relatively little else. Taste has quite a bit of grains to it, and seems very earthy in the long run. Seems like a very "meh" beer to me.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Nice. Good flavor. Smooth, but has a kick. Wouldn't mind less of the latter and more of the former however.

Bomber. Lightly hazy dark gold with a lacy white head. Lightly skunky aroma just after the bottle was opened, but that dissipated quickly. Aroma of grass, pine and honey. with a taste much the same crisply bitter finish.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ Richard’s tasting. Light orange pour with a white. Sweet pale malt, floral hops, and some apple up front. A touch of yeast, biscuit, and some grass. Flavor has some apple and pear esters to go with the biscuit and bready malt. A nice yeast note, floral hops, and a touch of grassy bitterness.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber pour slightly cloudy big head. Aroma of black pepper, apricots, wheat, and honey. Tastes of the great nuttiness of kellers. More bitter than other kellers. Grassy, piney hops blend in with peachy flavors. Palate is heavy and sweet without the payoff of big yeast flavor. Needs less filtration and hop bitterness and more yeast flavor. Pretty good for an american imitation though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy tang color with 1" thick silk head. Breezy, refreshing bouquet of gentle citrus breeze--quite well-stated. Nice body with an orangy wheat character and a mild, orange-citrus butter finish.
