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 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Pours a rusty amber with a small passive white head. Itís gone before you know it! Aroma seems faint. Light fruit, perhaps, and a mild maltiness. It barely has an odor. The slightest loss of your olfactory senses would render this the beer odorless. Taste is a bit better. Some floral notes, more fruit and a pleasant maltiness attempt to balance it. Itís actually pretty flavorful for 4%. Body is a bit thin and somewhat carbonated. Finish is more fruit and malt. Thinned, however. Lacks a decent finish. Not horrible though.

Keg @ Sedona. The pourís medium amber with a small head. The nose is of strong caramel. Hints of cocoa. Pain au chocolate. Bready body. More cocoa. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Light body, moderate carbonation. Solid.

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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Not a whole lot of aroma comes from this beverage, slight malt smell. Flavor is a little to be desired. Malty, hoppy, flavor is a little too watery for my tastes. Not awful, just not great.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber body with a small fizzy off-white head that faded to a thin wispy film. The nose is fairly dry and toasty with some light graininess and husky malt. The flavor is pretty dry, which is nice, but thereís a dusty graininess throughout that is a bit of a detractor. The finish is equally husky and grainy. Thereís a slight undertone of crystal malt throughout thatís a bit of a problem for me as well. I think that this could do with a little more sweetness and body. Dry mouthfeel with soft fizzy carbonation, quite a bit of graininess. The more I have of this, the more I dislike it.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
pours clear dark golden-orange with a small yet persistent off-white cap, some lacing traces. toasted spicy maltiness, few well-dosed caramel and nutty malts, noble grass and savant pepper, soft rounded lager fruity notes, light earthy and floral notes. moderate carbonation, light body - never watery, dry crisp herbal-grassy-peppery finish. circumstantial appreciation: itís the first day of spring and itís sort of snowing. highly quaffable and very well crafted.

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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled on March 8th - yea, Iím drinking a winter lager in late spring - whatís it to you, huh? - pour is amber with a light haze - nose is lightly estery, with moderate husky graininess, toffee - a bit watery in texture and thin in body - carbonation is moderate and beefs up the mouthfeel somewhat - flavor is somewhat dry, with a lot of the huskiness from the aroma, a touch of roasted nuts - a touch of spiciness on the tail end - not that good, but not as terrible as some of the ratings suggest.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle best before 03/13/13. Nose is lightly grainy, definite German lager yeast, a little sweetness with the pretzel dough and probably some Munich. Pours a beautiful dark amber-brown body and a short tan head. Very crisp full body, dense (and essentially impenetrable, simple) malt, mostly dry with a spritz of citrus on the back, hops are minimal but not absent, and thereís stability despite the light edge forward in malt. Water seems extra hard.
