3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured into a pint glass. Clear, straw color with a half finger of white head that held pretty well for this style. Good lacing.
Smells like corn husks and cotton candy.
Watery taste, mildest bitterness, ends a little sweet.
Crisp texture, light body, moderate carbonation. Fits the bill style-wise.
Maybe I haven’t had an adjunct lager in awhile but this was a decent drink. No off-flavors or bad smell.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Bottle) Clear straw with transient white head. Aroma is cardboard with hints of grass and toffee. Light body and lively fizzy in a coarse but exciting way. Taste is better than aroma suggests. There’s some pleasant toffee / candy sweetness under a nice fresh tangy flavour. It’s a little odd but quite well balanced. By the mid palate there some biscuity malt and some fairly pleasant hints of crisp bitterness in finish. I expect this would go down well in a hot dry climate. It’s not great but it’s drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle, poured into a mug at ~40 degrees F.
Appearance: Pours a clear straw gold, and forms a large, billowy head of thick white foam with good retention. Lacing was quite noticeable.
Smell: Biscuit malt forms the bulk of the smell, though oddly sweet, with an almost honey-like note to the sweetness. Grassiness is also present, with something vaguely rootlike.
Taste: Again, biscuity malt with that honey sweetness, like eating a biscuit that has honey drizzled over it. Grassy notes abound throughout the tasting process as well, alongside a presence best described as pollen. It’s a simple taste profile, though not a bad one.
Mouthfeel: Light, lively, and drinkable.
Overall: Not a bad lager. Not the greatest lager ever brewed, but the honey-sweetness adds a bit of interest that I haven’t run across often with pale lagers.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Golden colored, weak white head. Aroma of malts and grain, some grassy hops. Taste moderate sweet malts, grains, straw and hay. Low on bitterness. No adjuncts though. Light bodied. Not good but much better than the "normal" Tusker.
