2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate lager yeast, pine, light florals, sweet cereal notes, and a touch of straw. It pours a transparent golden-orange with two finger white head that quickly fades to a thick film. There is a good amount of soapy webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of light honey and grainy sweetness. The finish has light-moderate pine, lighter citrus, grapefruit, and a touch of grass. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, not bad, but not really my thing.

Flaske. Klar gylden med et ok hvidt skum. Humlet næse, desværre i den i den græssede, let støvede stil. Der kompenseres for den manglende friskhed med en god fyldig næsten kikseagtig maltprofil. Bedre i munden end i næsen. Desværre endnu en ok, men middelmådig øl fra Widmer.

Definitely a good lager. Cloudy yellow body with short-lived white head. Pine aroma. Sweet grain and a touch of bitter hops in the taste. Achieves the crisp lager finish as described. Enjoyable.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
India pale lagers tend to be OK at best and this is no exception. I think the extended batch aging necessary for a lager tends to make them taste a touch old from the get go. This is perfectly clear orange golden with a foamy white head and some splotches of lace. The nose is mostly pine with an undertone of honey pineapple tropical fruit. This is a bit on the sweet and heavy side for my tastes but the sweetness does at least bring out some orange notes. It finishes w/ a resinous, sticky bitterness with some earthy mineral overtones. This is really just not fresh or vibrant tasting, which is really what I typically want out of a hoppy style. It does have a nice balance though for those who like their IPAs on the sweet side.
