2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Deep amber, quite hazy, moderate fizzy sand colored head, spotty lacing. † Grainy nose, slightly nutty. † Dull sweet malt start, slightly roasty, becoming more grainy and nutty as it progresses. † Body and mouthfeel are average. † Fairly clean finish, given the graininess that starts out up front. † A bit of tang on the exit, even seems a tad bit citrusy. † Not half bad, but not really my favorite style. † Thanks Jordan for the bottle!

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft at the tiger. Pours an amber body with a small pale head. Aroma is pale malt, a bit of Sweetness and wet paper. No etoh or hops to boot. This was a pretty plain beer 22 percentile is about right.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pellucid amber color, thin head and light lacing. Nose of light cinnamon, crystal malt and a snappy grassy hop note. The flavor has a decent body with lightly metallic caramel malts and a bit of cold carbonation and hop bitterness; not very pronounced though. The finish is metallic and a bit skunky and showing more of the adjunt side of lagers. You need a very fine and/or clean palate to really get anything out of this. Light, uninspiring and low alcohol. Bad combination.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle: Dark woody amber with a thin head. Little to no aroma. The flavor is quite tart ... hint of ashen smoke, maybe, but almost puckeringly tart predominately. Not a fan.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Medium amber color, small head. Aroma is malty and appley fruity. A medium bodied Vienna. Malts are mild yet flavorful. Hops are also mild. Mild tasting beer, yet it does have some flavor to it. I do wonder how you can get ANY flavor out of a beer that’s limited to 4% alcohol. Nothing really good or bad to say about this beer. Drinkable but nothing special. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean. Aftertaste is malty.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pour out of 12 oz bottle is dark red with creamy white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, slight grain, hints of spice and a slight off note, some minerals as well. Taste is very watery with slight caramel and spice notes that donít quite work, some slight biscuity notes with a hint of vanilla, finish very watery as well.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours and orangish-amber color with a white head. The aroma is very malty with some corn. The flavor is malty with some sweetness, but the corn is still there. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
