1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle: Unpleasant sour grassy aroma. Pours a pale yellow with a fizzy white head that diminishes quickly. Very weak and watery flavor. Just a light malt skunk finish and thatís it. Thin. 0-2 today.

On tap at the brewpub. pours a bright yellow with a white head having great lacing. Evident straw aroma. This has a really nice crisp taste. Very clean and flawless. Grassy, light and tasty. This is an example of a light subtle flavored beer that is underappreciated by the raters.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Stinky, musty lemony aroma. Clear. Label looks like it was drawn by a math club geek sitting out gym class. All thatís missing is the notebook paper lines. Brothy and tart. Funky, metallic and underbittered. Astringent, pie crust finish - greasy, pasty and bland. You know, you only get to input your 1729<sup>th</sup> rating once, and I had to go and blow it on this beer!

similar to their amber ale. a good hop content make this very drinkable. clear light yellow in color. not much aroma. a very basic lager with some good hops. cant complain.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Nice yeasty smell, almost like rising bread or somthin. Some gunk on the bottom leads to an attractive hazy swirling pour. Almost wheat-beerish in appearance. Has more bite than a pale lager. Tries to come on like a pale ale but never quite gets there. Some carbonation, just enough for a creamy sensation on the palate, could use more. On the finish the medium hop bite fades into something a little more gentleman-like. Perhaps a little better than I expected but after all, it is a lager.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
I drank this the same day as I had (a few hours earlier) had Coors and Coors Light. The comparison showed this beer to be a clear notch above the Light--no question, as one would expect--but on a blind taste test I doubt this has much on a general macro. The palate faded quickly as the carbonation burned off fast. At first glance (on the pour) there was a haziness and very light yellow color, plus a bit of aroma, that suggested a European weizen. But alas, any connection with anything Alpine must be in name only....

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Alpine-white head with big bubbles; yellow-gold hue, clear as ice. Champagne-like nose. Clean and light tasting. Starts smooth and gentle; finishes spikey with an ice-pick carbonation. A little too crisp and effervescent maybe. Finishes with a sweet maltiness... and a burp. Not bad, but definitely not exciting at all. Actually, pretty boring.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
This Lager poured a small white quick diminishing head with fine-small bubbles. The body is cloudy with carbonation and the hue is pale yellow. The aroma is fruity and sweet. There was fair lacing on the sides of my glass. It has a sweet hoppy taste and it is thin and watery in my opinion. There is nothing very special that I have to say about this brew as it lacks character.
