3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the Green Leafe in Williamsburg on 5-29-05. Copper bodied with a small white head. Nose is caramel, malts, light grassy hops, and light cocoa. Taste brings out light caramel notes, creamy malts, mild hoppiness, dried fruits (for some reason I could swear I picked up melon), light cocoa and tea leaves. Body is medium with a light carbonation feel. Finishes with creamy maltiness, light cocoa, bigger fruitiness, light hops, brown sugar and thinned caramel.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper body with a small patchy off-white head. The nose has that cooked veggie undertone I have found in a few other of their beers. Some toasty malt otherwise. Same with the flavor too, I want something a lot cleaner from a Lager. No vienna malt character. Some snappy hops almost redeem the finish, but then they fade away leaving me with those cooked veggies. Medium bodied with a little clinginess and a flabby feel on the back end. Moderate fizzy carbonation. Not so good. What’s with the cooked veggies in their beers?

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
At long last, the elusive spring lager that I’ve been missing for years. Deep gold in color, decent head, clear. Aroma was sweet honey accented malts and some floral hops. Flavor matched, definitely pushing on the sweet honey side of the malt world. Hop focused with some balancing noble hops on the finish. Nicely done brew, just a touch sweeter than I like. I would have preferred things to be a bit cleaner.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle; found this in my beer stash; should have had it during the right season. Oh well. Poured an orange copper with small white head. Aroma of honey, caramel, grass and flowers. Flavor was a combination of those aromas. A slight sweetness throughout. Decent hop presence on the finish that was slightly peppery. Palate was good.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours out brownish color. Taste is sweet and fairly refreshing. Something I could drink alot of. An interesting brew to say the least, though I wouldnt recommend it over others of the style.
