3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap sample under the name Westy Lager. Poured clear golden copper color with a moderate to large frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate complex floral hop and toasted malt aroma. Medium body with a dry slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. This is a solid beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Served from the growler shared by awiseman01 at DLD ’10. The appearance is a solid golden orange with a small white head. A lot of spicy mild hop characters in here, some biscuit, and toffee make for nice notes. The mouth is dry. Pretty nice.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler from Sun King. Pours crystal clear golden/orange with thick foaming white head. Nose is juicy orange hops with a touch of coriander/spice. Flavor is highly carbonated citrus hop punch with a nice tasting mellow malt backing. It has an odd taste that is different from anything they’ve put out so far. A little dry/earthy in the finish, but a wonderful citrus component throughout. Nice job on this style.
