3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draught pint at Red Bones 7/6/06. Pours a hazy dark yellow color with a white fluffy head. Nose is corn and honey. Palate is nice and crisp, kinda refreshing with a light sugary finish. Flavor is honey and sweet corn notes with a nice fresh grass note to it.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Poured an amber color with an average frothy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Light sweet hoppy aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Light bitter flavor with a smooth bitter finish of moderate duration. Drinkable but not a standout brew.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Dark straw with a small white head. Aroma was subtle or faint. Malt, hops. Light bodied. Some carbonation. The flavor was weak and watery. A very listless and uninteresting beer.

I had this on tap at Redbones in Boston and it was great - good flavor, had the arcetypical lager feel, well rounded in that the malt/hop blend was balanced. Keep an eye on Two Brothers, these guys know what they are doing.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark yellow with thin lacy head. Corn aroma with slight lemon and some earthy aromas as well. Corn syrup and lemon with fresh cut grass flavors and alfalfa. Thin and carbonated, mostly boring.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden pour with a small off-white head. Aroma has spicy hops and light husky malt. Fairly light body with moderate carbonation. Flavor starts lightly malty with spicy hops. Finish has hops become more prevalent and some sourness making its way through. A nice beer.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Kane County Cougars game, served in plastic cup. Relatively faint aroma. Dark gold body, but hard to see; off-white, cream head. Wow! Really interesting and different flavor. Very good. Has the German doughyness that some of the unpasteurized helles’ I had in Germany. Dry and sharp. Outstanding and underrated.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium bodied for a lager, somewhat syrupy on the palate. ClarkVV summed up this beer very well - not amazingly complex, but cleanly done and easy to drink. The malts come through well in this beer and there is even a nice balance of mild hops to complement it. Two Bros makes some solid beers that are all worth a try. This is a nice change from all of the cardboard lagers out there.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear glassy light amber, with minimal white head. A light sweet nose. Very light palate with some carbonation. Carmel start, light citrus middle, and somewhat hoppy finish. Not bad for a lager. Would drink again this summer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
2006 bottle, best before August or some time out there. Not much head, with that slightly more glassy-than-clear appearance of a coppery-amber. Without talking about the aroma, I’m going to talk about a multi-part series with Two Brothers. Their beers are not complex, not mind-blowingly well-textured. But what they do have is a drinkability, thanks to clean, flawless brewing, that allows their simple malt profile to shine. Yes, this is not the best Dort I’ve ever had, but the hops are strong, but not overbearing, whlie the yeast is at least noticeable, more than most can say in this style.
