3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Another find from Silver Creek. This Lager pours a nice light amber color, with a good head that has continual lacing. the smell is slow to come, with light sweet malts, molasses, caramel, and a hint of cascade hops. The taste is totally satisfying; a great lager with sugar malts but with a good hop balance. This beer is extremely easy drinking, and is worthy to be Silver Creek’s flagship brew.

Decent, but not quite what I thought I was getting. I imagined a mildly hopped malty beer, more like a German Lager than this. Crispy hops and nice mouthfeel. From the tap at the brewpub.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Silver Creek. Hazy unfiltered orange-brown. Thin off white head. Rich for a house lager..nice. Malty, almost faint cinnamon tone. Not really classical, almost Zwickle-like ( this is before I found out it was a California Common). Good stuff, better than expected quality beer.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled on draught at the brewpub in Cedarburg, Wisconsin. Pours a clear golden amber brew with an average white head that dissolves to a fine film and white ring. Aroma of sweet caramel and cereal malts, light citrus zest with a touch of yeast. Taste is medium bodied with light carbonation, light bread dough, some yeast and a touch of fruity citrus peel flavors. Finish is slightly gritty, some bitterness and a bread-like aftertaste flavor. A decent refresher style beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2005 Served on tap. Poured to a copper/amber body with a thin, glazed looking creamy white head. The aroma almost came off as floral given the malty yeastiness. Caramel and toasted malts. The flavor is quite nice. Light floralness to it (even though it’s not hopped). A nice caramel and toasted malt. Barley type flavor as well. The palate is very slick and refreshing. Medium-light creamy mouthfeel. Good for a hot and humid day like today. A nice lager, I’d drink this again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub on 6/21/07: Pours a transparent orange bronze with a thin ring of white head. Pale malty aroma has some faint grassy hops and mild fruity esters. Body starts lightly sugary sweet with some earthy grassy green hops. Finishes a little thinner and bittersweet. Pretty drinkable and true to style, but otherwise uninteresting.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Silver Creek. Poured clear lighter-orange with a sticky off-white head. The aroma picked up earthy and floral hoppage over caramel and toffee malts.. sweet, but with nice depth. The flavor found dry caramel and fruity sweetness surrounded by mostly earthy hops.. some leafy notes on the back.. also some odd character that I couldn’t place. Light-medium bodied and dry on the palate.. a little tangy on the back end.. serviceable.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a bright golden, almost straw yellow colour. Head is small beige colour. Aroma is off hops, possibly Willamette? reminds me of it anyway, mouthfeel is full and silky, but flavors are impressive for this one. Not even in the least bit grainy, but classic PC lager style.
