2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle shared on the brew bus by my adopted parents, Tibs and aobecksy. Grainy, light toasty, but mostly sweet malty nose and flavor. Still don’t care much for this style.

Bottle from aobecksy, thanks! Pours light golden, frothy head. Smells of dough, dust, citrus. Taste of bread, hay, metallic and dusty notes. Light to medium bodied. Ok beer.

12 ounce bottle from aobecksy, poured a light golden yellow color with aroma of biscuits, toast, light hay, and some dough. Flavors are the same, basic lager taste, decent beer overall. Thanks for the extra bottle or two, I’ll make sure they will get good use.

2/24/13. 12oz bottle from Tibeerious and aobecksy! Thanks for coming down to FL! Clear golden pour with a small frothy white head. The aroma shows bready malts, biscuit, apples, and butter. Sweet malty flavor with more biscuit, a touch of caramel, apples, and butter. Eh.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle to taster (thanks Tibeerious). Looks decent; a transparent gold with thin white lacing. Smells and tastes of dough, mild sawdust, and mildly bitter. Average on the palate. Tick tock.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 24, 2013 Bottle at RBWG. Pours clear fold with a mellow, white foam head. Lots of sugary pale malts, dough and cereal. Mesium bodied with fine to average carbonation. Sweet doughy malt finish, light spiciness, some straw. Simple but very drinkable. (3.6)
Bottle at some other point during RBWG 2013. Pours clear gold with a fine, white cream head. Simple pale malts, cereal, light paper, white sugar. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish, light hay. Easy. (2.8)

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. Mostly clear pale orange color, nearly no head. Moderate crisp carbonation, but something sharp about the texture.. A bit chalky, maybe. Impressive malt / hop balance and presence, for a lager, though. Nice slightly tart bit of sweet taste, too. Good flavor, weird body.
