2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a thick well retained off white head, with some lacing, over a clear amber (SRM 10) body......nose is cereal with light malt tones....taste is light malts with cereal layers, leading to a moderate bitter finish....mouth feel light, almost watery, carbonation high. This has hints of the Vienna style but it really needs a lot more oomph in the malt backbone to meet the style parameters. BJCP 6/3/10/4/6

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Corn syrup and barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with giant head. Sweet corn/barley malt and mildly bitter herbal hay hops flavor. No surprises here.

12 ounce bottle thanks to Craig. A total farce, brewed by Band of Brewers Co! Pours a clear copper color with a small white head. A light sweet caramel nose. Smooth easy malt driven flavors, caramel, light fruity hops. Smooth and easy. OK.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Drank straight from bottle. Overall impression is that if I were back in college this would’ve been a premium kegger pour. Nose is cheap beer, a bit metallic. Flavor is fair but unremarkable lager. Minimal hops, and a cheap beer cereal support of aftertaste (makes me want patio chips for some reason). Wouldn’t turn it down but wouldn’t buy it again.

Aroma is caramel and nutty malts. The flavor is caramel malts, mildly gritty and a lightly tart finish.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle. Pretty standard-looking "amber" beer. The head fizzles quickly. The aroma is weak and corny. The beer drinks slightly better than the aroma suggests, but in the end drinks like any dozens of macro lagers. (#4943, 2/17/2013)

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
"Gold Medal Award Winner". Really? Twist top 12 oz bottle poured into straight pint glass. Light amber hue, not straw, a bit deeper that most of the conventional "national" brews. Small white head quickly disappears into the fizzy amber liquid. Minor lacing. Slight metallic scent. Cereal perhaps (might be some malt & hops hidden in there, too). Mild malty sweetness up front with some hop bitterness vaguely present on the finish. Tastes pretty decent. Nothing really stands out. I purchased this over the STANDARD "insert mass beer producers name here" beer, suspecting some trickery. Very drinkable and worth the 6 pack purchase.

Decent lager. Not great but very drinkable and refreshing. Wouldn’t go out of my way to find it but glad I tried it.
