3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with dkachur. Pours a hazy amber with a moderate yellow/white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left light lace. Mild aroma of malt along with a few notes of orange. The flavor is again mild malt with just a bit of orange. A pleasant fresh bread flavor emerges in the aftertaste and lingers for a few seconds beyond the swallow. Mild-medium bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear orange amber body with an attractive offwhite head and good lacing. Aroma of noble hops and bready malt. Light medium body is well carbonated. Taste is nicely balanced. Bready malt has an underlying graininess. Bitter hops are floral and spicy. Some fruity esters add depth. A very nice lager.

Bottle. Pours a golden orange color with a thick, soft, white head. Smells like sweet malts and some grains. Tastes grainy like a gourmet bread and balanced by bittering and some dry hops. Unusual combination but it works very well. Excellent beer.

Bottle from dkachur. Thanks man! Aroma is nice and malty with some moderated fruitiness and some caramel, light floral hops too. Pours a hazy amber/gold tone with a thin head. Flavor of moderately sweet caramel malts, light fruitiness, and crisp floral hops in the finish. Light and crisp with pretty high carbonation.
