3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from GBBF 2010. Clear mid gold, lasting white head. Some yeast, on a typical lager aroma. Touch of toast even. Slightly perfumed in mouth. Yes, some alcohol strength on swallow. Reminds me a bit of a strong biere de garde from France. It’s fine. A damn sight better than a lot of European strong lagers. Fine. Carbonation is a bit hard.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, 75cl, courtesy of fonefan. A clear, golden beer with a small, diminishing off-white head. Some cellary notes in the aroma, which is otherwise grainy and fruity. The flavor has some unclean notes, can’t really identify it. Alcohol, grains and fruity hops. Nice bitterness. Full-bodied and warming, finishing quite bitter. Some grainy, fruity flavors too. A decent one, but not a style a see any sensible use for. 100814

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A: The beer pours a clear golden straw color with a finger of white head.
S: Not the greatest nose on this beer. Lager yeast and corn with a big apple aroma. A light floral and grass quality to the nose. Very light malt character, too.
T: Fairly sweet with a lot of pale malts, bread, table sugar, and a fair amount of corn, too. Just a mild hop flavor to it and very little bitterness. As it warms up, a hint of toasted bread comes through.
M: Medium in body and carbonation.
O: Sort of a letdown for me as I have come to enjoy a lot of this brewery’s beers.

750 c&c from Ace in Boulder, CO. Pours hazy yellow/gold with a foamy off-white head. Aroma is something spice/citrus. Med body/frothish carb. Flavor is pale malt with a lot of herby/grassy/spice hop.
