2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle into pint glass, clear amber color with off-white head. Aroma is heavy malt sweetness and some caramel. Taste adds notes of some graininess, breadiness slight earthiness and faint grass hop bitterness. Light body, low carbonation with slight sweet finish. Not too bad, a pretty malty macro.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
This lager is excellent. It has an appealing aroma, in a pilsner glass it has a pleasing clear amber color. It ours forming a neat head of about 1í, after drinking laces the glass nicely. The taste is par excellent, easy on the palate and finishes nicely, not "dry" or bitter, leaving one desiring more. Overall it reminds me of a great German Lager, but half the price. The brewer sought to mimic German Lager and he is largely successful, it is brewed in Texas and Ohio, and distributed by MillerCoors, an excellent tandem making it very accessible. Nice Website.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle from Jewel Osco (Lisle, IL). Last of the mix six. Letís see how it goes. Pours a nice dulled amber orange hue, faint haze, but near transparent. Lively carbonation, frothy tannish head atop dies to a decent layer, sticks around small and laces ok. A bit darker in the middle, some decent glow on the edges. Aromas are carmelized malts, a bit biscuity and bready. Some gentle spice, earthiness and more carmelized malts. Gentle earthy hops, some mellow florals and grass. A touch spicy. Initial is lighter end of the fold, a touch of body shows carmelized malts and a faint bit of toffee. Bready, grainy with some decent earthy hop presence, florals and grass. Some gentle body, carbonation and carmelized biscuity malts hit the middle. A touch sweeter as you catch stride, some earth, toast and caramel. Backend is a touch dry and earthy but still a bit sweet overall. A touch less malt influence would be nice. A touch of soap, spice and carmelized malts as we play out, a bit softened overall and sweet as I said. Itís ok, but not really my digs. Still, itís pretty approachable. Looks great too with that good head, lively carbonation, nice lacing and stick around.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Sweet base malt aroma with some soda crackers, walnuts, and red fruit. Clear orange amber under a wispy, white top. Nutty and sweet flavour that itís week enough to allow some ethanol to penetrate. Medium high carbonation, low bitterness, slight cardboardy oxidation note.

Ordinary beer without much taste. Nice color, but watery taste. Not offensive.
