4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: JUN 16, 2012 Pours clear light pale yellow with a white head. The aroma has light pale malt with no hops bitterness detected. It is lightly bready and smooth. Medium smooth body with moderate carbonation. The flavor starts with smooth lager malt, very light toast and a bit of citrus. The taste seems basic, but it is very well constructed. The finish has a light bit of spicy hops and a touch of malty sweetness. This is far from being a fireworks sort of beer, but a its a great no frills beer that will be a perfect summer afternoon beer. (7/4/7/4/15 - 3.7)
Feel the need to update this since the initial rating was a sample at a fest & I’ve had it multiple times since and now in bottles. I see nothing of the original rating notes that needs to be updated, but the consistency from this beer and flavors have really grown on me. The one alteration I would make to my ratings the Hallertau hops giving more of a spicy presence to the taste. This has become a bit of a benchmark for solid lagers to me.
