Crystal clear, golden lager with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention and good, cumulus lacing. The nose is sweet and malty with notes of toffee and caramel. The flavor is sweet caramel, toffee and corn. Medium-bodied and creamy with mild carbonation. Lengthy, sweet finish. Overall, it’s cloyingly sweet. Not really my thing.

This one had a strange mouthfeel to me, hard to describe but I had trouble getting it past my tongue (?). Honey colored with an amber hue. Very syrupy malty flavor.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Great beer. Nose of apples, snappy biscuit and pear hops, wheat, corn cob and stewed peaches. Thick, hoppy and sweet, then it turns just the slightest bit sour (yeast?), before finishing as a gooey old apple and pear thing. Great stuff.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Jesus Jumpinz, is this one underrated or what?!! Deep gold/straw pour with medium, white head. Aroma of big honey, corn flakes, hopcit, apricot. Tastes very honeyish, with emerging apricot, hopcit, and karo syrup as it warms. A great golden lager. In fact, one of my top 10 golden lagers of all time.
