3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle... Hazy, light golden lager with a huge, frothy, off-white head. Good retention. Grainy, slightly lactic nose with more than only a suggestion of cornmeal. The flavor’s a little on the tangy side. I get the feeling there would be more of a hop "snap" if not for the buffer (so to speak) provided by the acidity. Medium-bodied and fizzy with a crisp, modestly pungent, dry finish. With the haze, the huge head and the acidity, I’m thinking this bottle caught a little bug somewhere along the line. Oh well, it was enjoyable (maybe even more so, for me) nonetheless. A big SHOUT goes out to aofoxxy for providing the bottle of this classic beer!

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22oz bottle acquired in trade with shigadeyo (thanks!). Poured a lighter and slightly hazy yellow color with an larger sized white head. Aromas of wet grass, spices, and biscuit/bread. Tastes grapes and lemons (a little puckering) that kinda drowned out anything else going on. Thinner body.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Wooden Shoe Lager Beer, from a 22oz bottle thanks to Drew. Cereal grain and grape nut nose, a bit of some sweet LME as well. Golden orange apple juice color, looks good with a white, decent-sized head. a bit musty and doughy nose over time. Dusty dough and biscuit malt flavor, more LME flavors, slick up front, old cereal grains and maple toast... weird ginger ale and apple juice malt flavor.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
The people behind this beer handed out bottles at the RBSG Grand Tasting for people to bring home and taste. Apparently it’s connected with a restaurant and has been picked up by Elevator Brewing. Pours a crystal clear golden color with a large white frothy head. Good head retention and lacing. The aroma is nutty and grainy with some faint corn-like notes. The taste is similar... nutty and grainy with some faint grapes, green apple and other fruits. Bitter hop finish. Medium bodied. Pretty decent.

Touches of piney hops and fruit in the nose. Light body with flavors of toasted malt, mild hops, pine and fruit. The finish is fruity with a short mildly hopped aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.
