2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Ok, now I see why this rates so high; that big bitter personality bite that hits you on the tongue like a slap in the face. This beer starts out rather well behaved in the bottle, lager pale look and a nice friendly lager aroma. Then you taste it ....and whap. Decent amount of carbonation. Has some over the top inklings during the session. It says mild hops in the description but there is more than mild here i tell ya. Each slug is certainly an awareness of big sharp wide pilsner, light, eh? heheh. Has a much bigger impact than the 4.8% listed here.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Skunked grass aroma. Clear yellow with a greenish hue, medium head. Bitter grass, a bit of malt at midpalate, returning to bitter grass. The bitterness just seems excessive. Pilsnerish. Light bodied.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
(draft @ The Old Toad - Rochester, NY) Clear gold color with a fluffy white head. Sweet malts and a lot of grass in the aroma. Rather earthy. Flavor is sweet, corny, grassy and damp all at the same time. A bit thin-bodied with a light sweetness on the aftertaste.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling.
It pours a very pale, crystal clear gold color. A very stable, pillowy, bone white head sits on top. The nose has notes of noble hops, stale cracker, a slight vegetal note, and a hint of fruitiness. That same fruitiness comes through in the taste. Light cracker and floral notes are paired with a mild back bitterness. A light bordering on watery body blends with mild carbonation and leads to a slightly sweet but short finish. A decent session beer and not a bad Kolsch but nothing that will blow you away. Rather forgettable I am afraid.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On Tap @ Lure’s - Crownsville Md-Golden pour w/o much head. Aromas of roasted malt & yeast. Solid, easy drinking brew w/flavors of roasted malt, bread dough, yeast, & grass/hay. Had a little hop bite to it, not much. Good summer brew, not spectacular, but enjotable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
20100410 12oz bottle from Wine World. Clear pale golden color with medium sized head of white, rocky froth that fades fairly quickly to a film, lacing spottily. Aroma is slight with some green pepper, white pepper, shredded wheat, and white glue. Sounds worse than it is. Body is light, dry, and crisp, evenly but somewhat aggressively carbonated, and with an urgently dry finish but only the mildest astringency. I can imagine this beer going downhill quickly, and the best by 8/17/10 date on the neck seems overly optimistic. As it is, a decent and definitely fresh quaff. Maybe not quite twelve bucks for a second six pack decent, but decent.
