2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JUL 28, 2013 Bottled. A golden coloured lager with no head. The aroma is typical chemiaclly lagerish with a hint of butter. A touch sweet in the mouth but there are some noble hops. Pretty refreshing actually as served very cold. Score 2.4
Subsequent rating scored 1.9. Average becomes 2.2

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2010 Bottle with dinner at the Dutch. Served in proper glassware! WOO-HOO! Moderate amber/gold...hard to tell in the dim lighting. I’m not complaining about the lighting mind you. Nose of cut hay. Malts dominate by a wee bit and are well balanced with the mellow hops. Some apple tone. A utilitarian brew that complimented my obligatory pulled pork sang-wich.

Draught. Pours clear deep golden yellow colour with medium dense head. Aromas of floral hops, with notes of grain/malts. Taste is dry with flavours of strong floral hops, with notes of malt and citrus. Medium bitter on the finish. A solid lager.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Mine’s a different, smaller bottle, green glass with no neck label, looks ancient and cool. Nose is malty, grassy, sweet, clean. Clear golden pour with very light carbonation and a short beige head. Taste is sweet and metallic, very sharp and lightly acidic, but not infected or skunked. Light body but not watery. Yup, sharp and attention-grabbing is right, just a touch of citrus squirted underneath the lightly floral pale malt - seems like it would gain some appreciation after a few bottles, if I could convince myself to finish that many.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pale yellow with minimal head, typical lager style. Flavor is surprisingly soft and mellow, hints of pale malts, even some floral notes within. Finishes with just a hint of German metallic hops. Smooth and easy drinking.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a hay yellow with frothy white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is a lot of earthy hay and bread with a sugary caramel undertone. Flavor is very barnyard, earthy hay. A lot of cereal/grain flavor with nut overtones. Body is creamy with fair carbonation.
