2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at the brewpub: Poured into a Pilsener glass, this had a deep gold body and a decent white head that hung around for a while. It had a sweet grainy maltiness in the aroma with more of a suggestion of grassy hops than a real hop presence. That’s pretty much how the flavor worked, too. This seemed to be a more substantial lager than what folk had reported in the past, but I think it needs more hops to balance it out.

2.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2008 It is not saying much when I base my ratings on the ’’’’least offensive’’’’ of the group. Of the 3 I tried this was the least offensive. Does that mean it is good, no. But of the beers I tried at the brewpub this would be the one I would drink again, under pressure. Nothing to detract or enhance this beer, very average. A pale lager in all respects.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle(9/99)-A golden body with a nice white head and an aroma of light hops and sweetness. Taste of the same and finishes dry. Not the best golden.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Had this beer on 6/22/2000. Aroma is like cotton candy. Color is a hazy gold, with good carbonation and a light head. Taste is just bad. Starting with light/medium body and no flavor. Finish is like sweet plastic. Overall I rate its just bad, don’t buy this beer.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This one had the expected clear golden color with just some lacing (sampler glass at the brewpub). Very little malt note and some grassy lightweight hops and a dry finish. This was designed to emulate the biggies (bud, mgd, etc.) and it does.
