3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Starting Christmas off light and easy - hazy gold pour - well-retained head - aroma is bready, yeasty with a little tang to it, toasted grains, light grassy noble hops - very full in the mouth - tastes like liquid bread - yeasty, grainy, toasty - moderate honey sweetness - hops are a bit subdued; must be a somewhat old bottle - still, a crisp bitterness develops - a previous rater says this is "like food" - very much so.

Gold, loose foamy head. Look, this is one of those cases where I try my best to appreciate subtle nuances but Man this just tastes like beer. Oh, sure I get a little bit of fruitiness, and I suppose I could try to find a fancy word to describe it, but this just seems like, y’know, a beer...

Bottle from Half Time. Pours amber with a foamy off-white head. Aromas of bread and grass/herb. Med + body with thick carbonation. Flavor is bready, with some citrus and grass. This stuff is like food.

Translucent orange with small off-white head. Nice malty aroma. Flavor is a good mix of malts and hops with the malts giving it a nice smoothness.

12oz bottle from BOTW. Pour is a nice golden color with a thin white of cream. Aroma is clean, with some nice toasty maltiness and just a touch of cleansing european hops. The flavor is much the same, the malts are the body of this beer, but they are effortlessly drinkable and not overly sweet or sticky at all. The dry grassy hops are just there in the finish and add a little character and finish. A really nice little lager.

There is a bitter flavor to it... dark piss color to the beer. Nothing special, but grows on you after time.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy gold that eventually becomes mostly clear with a thin white head that lasted through the first two sips and left scant lace. Mild aroma of malt with some slight breadiness. The flavor is malt, bread and mixed fruit (mostly pears and apples). Fairly smooth mouthfeel. Slight bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied. No problems here.

A very nice lager/dortmunder. Just tapped the keg at my local watering hole and this stuff was really, really good. Hide the 6 percent alcohol extremely well. Extremely drinkable. Great summer/session brew. Nice work.
