2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
I guess as a bridge beer to wean people off the standard macro stuff it is okay but not much of interest here. Grassy nose with corn. Palate seems to have a bit of the nice German hops. Drinkable. Gold clear and no hear and little retention or lacing.

Draught from Habitat. Shiny yellow. Malts and grains. Bit of a helles vibe. Pretty decent

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Growler filled at Shoreline Beverage. Pours a hazy gold with a thin linen white head that was gone after the first sip and left no lace. Mild aroma of malt with a few notes of lemon as well. The flavor is grainy malt with some mild pine and a few traces of lemon. Mild-moderate bitterness at the finish. Some mild biscuit emerges in the aftertaste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear golden white sticky head. Fairly expensive for a 5.5% lager. Aroma is nicely bread, stinky grassy hops, biscuit. Flavor follows, pretty nice, easy drinking, like the balance, perfect bitterness with sweetness. Very nice beer that probably belongs on draft or in six packs.

North Star, Ithaca tap ($6): Pours an amber color with a white head. Aroma is caramel malts and a bit of hops. The hops are, however, much stronger in the taste than they are in the aroma. Taste is somewhat malty, but not that much. This was not a very interesting beer, but it was well-balanced and it did have a nice hop profile.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft. Pours kind of golden nice head smells and tastes of grass malt grapefruit. Started out sweet kind of tart lemon then about three four sips I got a lot more of the hops. It wasn’t bad wasn’t good run of the mill average beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden beneath a foamy white head. Bread-like malt aroma with some vague fruit notes. Doughy, lightly sweet cereal-like malts. Pretty well balanced by herbal and slightly grassy hops. Easy drinking, but could use more of a hop presence.

On tap at the Old Toad last night after our dinner at the Fairport Inn. I bought this for my wife because they were out of Warsteiner Lager. She did not like this too much. I had this after I finished my Mikkeller Big Worst Barleywine. My tastebuds were a bit overloaded by the Mikkeller. I’ll have to try this again sometime.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber pours a clear copper/orange with a medium white head. Aroma of sweet malt, grain and with slight hops. Taste similar to aroma with yeast and grassy hops, clean and crisp. Refreshing, perfect for a hot summer day!
