3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slightly hazy golden with white head and moderate to heavy lacing. Bready, yeasty and toasted malt flavors on the nose with maybe a slight hint of caramel on the back. Mildly sweet, hint of bitterness. Slight herbal hop, but this is very much a malt driven beer. Medium bodied palate with moderate carbonation. Long malty finish that is very smooth. Very drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
16.9 oz bottle poured into a stemmed Belgian tulip glass. The aromas are a bit of wet towel, with some lemon, bread, and a salty / mineral quality. It pours a hazy unfiltered honey yellow color with a soft, pillow white head. It retains well with an abundant sheet lace. It’s a lightly bitter beer with medium amounts of dry sweet. The waxy beer has a medium light body with a light amount of fizzy carbonation. If finishes mostly clean with notes of dry minerals, light lemon, bread, and a touch of salt. The aftertaste is very light and short.

Bottle. Pours a clear(isn) gold with a medium head and aromas of dough, honey and hay. Flavor is clean... a little dough, some honey and light bitterness, but nothing too interesting. Great beer for summer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught a bunch of times this last weekend.
Pours a hazy gold with a small head and good lacing on the glass.
The aroma is dough with some nice herbal hoppiness, it’s got some wet limestone and mild malt character.
The flavor is mildly bitter, grassy & herbal hops are pretty forward. The malt has a light toastiness and a touch of fruity character. The beer is a little yeasty, but in a good way.
Good enough I bought a 4 pack of it, thought about grabbing the 12 pack, but sheesh... I’ve got enough beer @ home.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
This rating is from bottle (even though I had some on tap too)... YES the bottled version is far better, no idea why.
Hazy golden hue with a fading head and spotty lace. The aroma is a beautiful confluence of pils malt, noble hops and minerally water. The taste is spot on with the nose, just bitter enough for refreshment and just enough mouth feel to make sure you know you are not drinking some blah lager. I can only imagine this is what bier was more modern advances got in the way. Glad I still have two more to enjoy... should have bought more. FYI, my tap rating would have been 3.7. I did detect a touch of DMS on tap, none in the two bottles I have opened so far.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is cloudy pils yellow in the glass with a pillowy head of foam. It has a big noble hop nose--floral and lighly grassy. Solid malt character helps bring out a bit of lemon as well. I found this a little overcarbonated but that had little effect on drinkability. The finish is nice and crisp w/ some lingering sweetness and earthy bitterness.. This is a really good beer but not quite spot on, esp. as far as the texture.
