3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Grassy nose, bready, some pine. Gold/amber color, 1-cm head. Thin pleasant malty initial, lightly sweet, gentle grassiness, and tiny lingering bitterness. The gentle dry-hop bitterness is the high point. Thin-medium body. A bit thick for a lager, but it is tasty stuff.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours clear golden with a white head. The aroma has pine, cream, citrus, bready caramel and some floral notes. It has a medium crisp body with lots of prickly carbonation. The flavor starts a bit sweeter than the aroma with sweet toasted caramel and nicely balanced spicy, piney and zesty hops. The finish is clean, hoppy and bright. Pretty nice.

Pours a deep golden hue with a small fizzy head that fades quickly. Aroma is citrus, tangerine, hints of caramel. Starts off with tangerine, light bread notes, lemon and leads to hoppy notes followed by a quick, bitter finish. Mouthfeel is light and crisp. This is a nice lager. Great nose and an excellent finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a clear yellow with a large white head. Aroma is a super piney hop with pale malts in the back round. Flavor is clean dry malt with a bitter hop and an almost wintergreen mint like finish. Really hoppy even for an IPL and almost drinks like an IPA. I think I just found my highest rated lager.
