2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a crystal clear pale gold with tons of carbonations bubbles and a large white, but not tightly-foamed head. The head has decent retention actually and leaves some decent lacing.
The smell is ultra-mellow with mostly bready malt and a pinch of grassy, cirtusy hops.
The taste is decently balanced for a pils, there is an overlying bitterness over the bready malt. The flavor seems to lean a bit towards the euro pale lager, but this is still a good light lager.
THis brewery does much better for sure, but this isn’t bad.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours urine yellow with a splotchy, ugly head. The aroma was lemongrassy and hopcity, with pale malts present also. The flavor wasn’t bad, with a crisp hopc and citric presence coupled with a honey malt sensation. I’d drink this as a lawnmower beer.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Poured a clear bright golden with a towering cap of loose white head. Aroma picked up a fair dose of bready character with light spices, lemon, and nice floral notes. Flavor found sweet breadiness at the core with pleasant and mild floral bitterness eminating outward... some floral and very dry grassy notes round out the finish.. certainly solid for the style. Light-bodied but thick on flavor across the middle.. dry lemony finish. Thought this was tasty and every bit worth the $0.99 I paid for it!

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy, light yellow gold, average foamy head leaving some nice lace. Fresh aromas of lemon and hay. Slightly sweet palate of pale malt with a touch of grassy hops. So much better than North America’s typical pale lagers.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Light straw in color, very pale and clear in fact, thin white head, light carbonation. Straw and grass on the nose, slight malt flavor but mainly grassy on the tongue. Semi-sweet, not half bad for a Pale Lager. Moderate body and mouthfeel. Fairly clean finish, simple, remains mainly grassy. Not too shabby. Thanks mattbob for sharing!
