3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured into a Pilsener glass from a 12 ounce bottle best by 7-25-2012.
A: Clear golden body with lots of carbonation steadily rising to the creamy white head. Head has good retention and leaves residue on the glass.
S: Not much going on here, slight grassy aroma but overall pretty bland.
T: Mild sweetness, slightly earthy flavor and some toasted flavors, not much else going on.
M: Light crisp body.
O: Easy drinking beer, I am enjoying it, but I wouldn’t buy it again.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
355ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a small white head which leaves a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is bold spicy hops with some cereal grains. Taste is a sharp hop bitterness which is pleasing and a nice malty sweetness to help balance things out. A very nicely done lager and highly recommended.

On tap at the brewery’s pub pours slight shade darker than straw yellow capped by foamy white head, light lacing remains. Nose is clean with hint of flowers. Nice cereal anf malt body with light bitterness. Grass and flower in the finish. Quite a compliment to the flyers win, the brat sandwich, and a one of a kind tour.

12 ounce bottle. Golden pour with a thin white head. Aroma of yeast and straw. Medium bodied taste with lively yet smooth malt finish. Might be the best US lager I’ve ever had.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle. Mostly clear very pale yellow color. Good, thin white head. Good lace. Crisp carbonation, good smooth texture. Easy to drink. Nice, lightly sweet rich bready taste. Light crisp hops. Light lemon citrus. Good savory light sweet taste. Impressive and very well-put-together lager. Would be interesting to try this and Great Lakes Dortmunder side-by-side.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Malty aroma has a strong yeasty overtone. It pours a clear solar yellow with a rather average white head. Crisp, malty flavor has a grassy overtone and a firm yeasty note. Smooth, crisp texture has just a little fizz, enough so that you know this is beer. Just OK, but pick up a bottle if you have a chance.

Pours light golden and a little hazy. Aroma of grass and a little skunk. Flavor is watery, like other stoudts brews I’ve had. Not one of my favorites.

12oz bottle pours slightly hazy gold with a full white pillowy head. Aromas of sweet carmels and toffee with a slight grassy note. Flavor is sweet only cut by a bit of bitterness at the end. Body is medium and finish leaves a malty flavor behind.
