2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tap at brewery. Sort of a cloudy golden color. Interesting... Biscuity malts with a slight fruitiness in the aroma. Taste is not so great, with the same sort of bitter flavor as all of the other beers excep with absolutely nothing to back it up. Kind of corny as well. I guess it’s a decent pale lager.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. A nice surprise! Poured a near hazy, glowing yellow with a massive off-white head and big yeast sediment. Massive lace. Apple sauce, orange peel, flowers, tamarind, Belgian yeast, candi sugar in the nose. ???? Taste is boozy, sticky, rich, dry, earthy. Overall sweet, lots of candy with a big Belgian ale characteristic.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This one resembles too many ales rather than lagers. It has a little sweetness and a background bitterness, a fairly complex but mild flavor for a lager. Would I buy it again? If it was the only beer left on the shelves, sure.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. Bottle. Pours a hazy medium pale color with some head and no lacing. Malt in the nose. This sample is on the verge of going sour but the malt is still balanced in the flavor profile. Nice beer.

3.7 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Unusual flavor, not unlike a Vienna with its thick maltiness. Very nice and caramelly with a moderate amount of hops. Enjoyable. Amber color. Bit sweet.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: Lightly hazy orange, light head and lacing. Nose of sweet cooking starches, like sweet potato or boiled peanuts. The flaovr is caramelly with a bit of bitterness, eh, a bit too odd and sweet, not crisp enough nor drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2007 This beer came to me from my beer club - I have never heard of this brewer before. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a medium golden color with a huge orange-white head. The aroma is fruity sweet malts. The flavor is fruity and peppery with pleasant tangy light malts. The finish is sweet and fruity. A very nice lager.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Aubrey. Beer is clear, light bright gold with a large, white, fuzzy-looking, mostly diminishing head.<P>
The aroma is the best I’ve smelled in this style so far. it’s malty with light notes of toasted grain, caramel, trace of cracker; Hoppy with light lemon zest, light resin/pine, flower; Yeasty with a trace of blue-veined cheese, light note of dough; Miscellaneous notes of moderate bubble gummy tropical fruit, trace of butterscotch.<P>The flavor is lightly sweet, moderately bitter with a longer-than-average lightly bitter, trace unclean finish.<P>
The body is light, the texture is watery and the carbonation is lively.<P>
I think this is my favorite PL so far.
