3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
~Rich bready biscuity malt aroma with light caramel and guava fruitiness. Interesting aroma.
~Pours a brilliantly clear golden color with long lasting fluffy white head.
~Bready malts with slight hop fruitiness and a somewhat off balanced bitterness.
~Medium to full bodied with medium CO2, lingering bitterness.
~Enjoyable lager for sure, just seems unbalanced. Bittering hops kind of ruin it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ Smoqued BBQ. Nearly copper in color with a fluffy white head. Sweet oranges and toasted bread on the nose. Nice pine, too. Kind of a garlic note, though. Flavor has a rather intense bitterness that I wouldn’t normally associate with a beer like this. It’s okay, except for that it’s garlicy. Lots of pine, orange, and some peach. A bit of a grassy, herbal note as well. Decent malt sweetness.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a finger of head on a clear medium straw colored body. Darker than most lagers.
The aroma is quite fragrant: flowers, grain and musty. Nice though.
The taste is grainy malt sweetness with a descent balance of mild bitterness.
The texture is a little gritty with moderate carbonation.
It’s a nice, full bodied lager.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange/copper colored with a two-finger foamy head and decent lacing, generous carbonation. Aromas of grains and grassy hops with a touch of caramel. Taste is similar, though grainy malts are prominent, and citrus notes make a strong contribution. Medium body, nice carbonation, prickly mouthfeel and a slight hop bitterness in the finish.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle from a 6 pack purchased at Bel-Air in Woodland, CA. The aroma on this is intense! Super dank and piney up front, followed by some graham cracker like honey sweetness. Transparent orange body with a large, strong fluffy off-yellow head present. Starts with a fairly hop-forward flavor. Pine and a bit of a weird green onion flavors. The middle has a nice, grainy, malty flavor. Rather cereal-like (cheerios). Finishes with a mild to moderate bitterness. Hints of white pepper. Not digging this beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at Tap 25. It pours a deep golden color with a small white head. The aroma has some fat maltiness, apple juice and light floral hops. The flavor has a little more apple and malt with strong floral/methol bitterness. A little caramel sweet. Pretty decent, but not as crisp and dry as I would like.
