Yellowish with white head. Bitter and slightly fruity. Haven't really liked any of their beers. Had this on tap as part of a flight at urban chestnut brewery.

2.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance is a cloudy golden with a frothy white foam cap that dissipated quickly. Aroma is all pilsner malt, with no noticeable hop aroma. Taste is a bready pilsner malt with a moderate bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium to thick for the style, with a slight creaminess and moderate carbonation. Finishes clean and crisp with a slight residual bitterness. Reminiscent of a Helles, but with a creaminess from the unfiltered, bottle conditioned beer

Nice brew! Very yeasty. Great specimen of a Bavarian lager- a nice Helles cousin! Very enjoyable. Will have to buy more!

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle... Pours clear and golden with a small, fizzy, white head. Although I’m trying really hard to pull something from the glass, I can’t smell anything here. Light to medium-bodied with a slick mouthfeel and fizzy carbonation. The flavor is mostly-balanced and a touch bitter with a hint of buttery diacetyl in the otherwise crisp finish. The diacetyl actually helps here, because it doesn’t really bother me and there’s not much of anything else going on.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour on tap at the brewery, slightly hazy yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of grass, bread, biscuit, nice honey, hints of floral and spicy notes. Taste is a mix of grass, bread, biscuit, nice crisp crackery notes, some floral notes, finishing dry, clean. Nice version.

Pours a nice amber with a couple fingers of white head. Decent lager - figure a Bud done right with a bit of a kick.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to pils glass. Looks solid; a transparent gold with foamy white head. Smells of lager yeast and mild hops. Tastes like it smells with more of a yeast presence. A bit mineraly as well. Average on the palate. Not bad, but nothing to write home about.

Keg @ Urban Chestnut. Slightly hazy gold with a small head. Nice bread and light floral hoppiness. Fresh peppery hop flavor. Creamy malt. Sharp carb on the finish. Awesome.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle sourced from one of their 4 packs. Beer wafts of bread, barley and weakly of hops. Appearance is a thick opaque blonde. Tastes like the best lager I have ever had. Not surprising, the owner of UBCB brewed a lot of AB’s best beers for Michelob. Palate is refreshing as a well flavored lager could be the only thing this beer is missing is hops has too much grain/ bread taste.
