12oz bottle thanks again to Bu11zeye. Pours a hazy, light honey-colored body with little head. Aroma is lightly grainy/corny malt and "blech". Taste is corny sweet and somewhat sour(?). Thin mouthfeel with active carbonation.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap. Pours an amber color with a thin head. Aroma of grassy hop and some light spicy notes. Flavor is lightly metallic with malts, and hops. Overall, flavor is weak. Nothing to write home about.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured a deep amber/copper color with a huge creamy head that lasted to the bottom of the glass. The nose was very fresh and clean to the senses, mostly roasted malts and slightly citrusy. The taste starts with big, lightly sweet malt, and the finish has a piney pleasantness to it. The aftertaste is dry and crisp. A quite drinkable beer and at 4% ABV, something that would make a nice session beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 ounce bottle. Bright copper color topped by a small bubbly off-white head. Grainy, earthy toasted malt aroma. Mild toasted malt flavor with a very light biscuit, caramel backbone. Dryish grassy hops are indistinct. Finish is dry and uninspiring. Lacks complexity or depth. I was hoping for more.

Deer Valley Resort. Bottle. Nice reddish color with smell of sweetness to it. Malt was there along with some dried fruity taste. Not much of head retention. Thin mouthfeel. Not bad, but not great either

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. No clue who sent me this... maybe I bought it. Pours a cloudy amber with a medium head and a little bit of lacing. Looks rather boring. Toasty, malty nose with slight hop, but not much. Flavor gets much better with 2nd and 3rd drink. Nice and biting with a dry finish. This is a good and crisp beer that I believe fits the style well and is a fine brew. Body is of course light, but nice brisk carbonation. Good stuff.

Carmel and fresh dough on the nose. A really pleasant beer overall. Slightly dry yet creamy, very drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is an interesting red winter lager, yeasty and a bit of chocolate. Bottle pours a dark red-brown with a medium white head. Taste is nutty-malt and finishes almost like a light stout.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
What can I say? It’s a bit toasty lager! Its nose is full of caramelly and malty sweetness. It has a beautiful color: golden-amber with barely off-white head. Mthere is no hop aroma and not much bitterness, though it does have a slightly vegetal kick(...my first thought was ’asparagus’). But it is what it is, a lager.
