3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16 oz. can from TheHOFF43 - thanks again, Kyle! Pours a lightly clouded yellow-gold with a small white head that lasts for quite a while. Notes of bready and crackery pils malts, grass, straw, and faint citrus. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a a smooth, malty, very mildly bitter mouthfeel. Pretty dry, actually, and mostly clean. Glad I finally got to try this. Really nice American take on the style.

Easily one of the best lagers I’ve had. Incredibly, incredibly flavorful. And at a session ABV.

Thick white head that wants to hang out for a while. Not much aroma, pretty easy going down. Decent lager.

16 ounce can courtesy of AWISLguy, opened Halloween 2014. Trick or treat! Pours a slightly hazy amber with a medium sized foamy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of doughy malt, spicy and grassy hops. The taste is grainy malt, doughy malt, apple, grassy hops. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, decent balance. Nice beer.

Tap at Pub 42. Pours clear golden color with minimal head. Smells of wheat and grass. Taste a little sweet with the hops in the backround. Dry finish...easy drinking. Good beer.

Can thanks to Will. Poured into a red solo cup. Ice cold cooler temp. Banana lager esters on the nose. Freezes my nose the harder I inhale. Crackery malts. Nice carb. Slightly dry. Looks cloudy. Tastes like a dry biscuit without butter or jam. Did I mention it’s cold?

Draft. Light golden body with a frothy white head, rapidly diminishing. Aroma of grass, toasted grain, herbs. Hint of floral hops. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Clean malts, grass taste in finish. Solid dortmunder.

A little sweet on the profile, thin body, doesn’t seem to take advantage of the fresh hop nature of canning such a beer. However, kudos for packaging it in pint cans, and a clean refreshing finish. Sessionable.
