Bottle sampled. Pours copper with a small white head. Aroma of slight fruit, hops, caramel, and toast. the flavor is semi-sweet, caramel, fruit, toasted malts and a good amount of bitterness.

Tangy malty lager aroma, malt beginning with a zingey spicey hop finish, Slight sweetness in the aftertaste. Tastey enough to be above a lawnmower brew

Off taps at Capital Ale house. Clear copper color with tiny head. Aroma may be vienna style malts but was hard to get in a smoky bar with odors of pickles and perfume wafting by. Fairly hoppy flavor with some yeast fruityness and moderate malt backbone. Reasonably light mouthfeel with moderate arbonation.
Good light drinking beer that might be a good introduction to craft brewed beers.

12oz bottle. I’m not huge on lagers, but I’ve been loving this one. Pours a dark/reddish hay with a slight head. Smells and tastes more like a toasty pilsner. As a "Spring" beer i think it does the job perfectly. Light, refreshing, nothing offensive.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reddish-bown body with a light white head. Grassy and corn-on-the-cob aroma. Heavy grasses and hops in the taste, the hops mute the grasses somewhat. Corn-on-the-cob ending. Very nice for a lager.

Was pleasantly suprised at the nice hop balance of this beer. Generally i would have thought of a spring lager as a being crisp, light, and malty, but this takes that and adds respectable hop backbone. Cheers.

As luck would have it!! At my local Navy package store, I grab the last dragon pack and low and behold, the only St George brew I have not sampled. Pours a golden amber, average head, thick lacing. Nutty caramel sweet malt aroma, notes of pancake syrup. Bitter malt flavor, thick body, semi dry, nutty and honey notes. Earthy finish.
