2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2016 Bottle at The Chateau in Andover, MA; on tap at Culpepper’s North Andover, MA. Mild floral aroma. Beautiful clear, reddish/copper color--its best attribute, with minimal, fleeting head. Taste is pleasant, mildly bitter and not particularly strong. Light to medium body with crisp texture and average carbonation. A highly drinkable, competent lager that is a step up from major brand lagers, but doesn’t stand out in any way.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce can into lager glass, canned on 12/11/2014. Pours slightly hazy orange/copper color with a 1 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of caramel, toast, bread, brown sugar, light nuttiness, pear, apple, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance dark/toasted malt, earthy hops, and light yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of caramel, toast, bread, brown sugar, light nuttiness, apple, pear, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness. Minimal herbal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, bread, brown sugar, light nuttiness, herbal, floral, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a short bit. Nice robustness and balance of dark/toasted malt, earthy hops, and light yeast ester flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Fairly clean for a lager, there is some fruitiness present, but not too much. Medium carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 4.4%. Overall this is a nice Vienna lager style. All around good robustness and balance of dark/toasted malt, earthy hops, and light yeast ester flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Bottle@Orbit Cafe, Kennedy Space Centre, Florida. Amber beer with a reasonable head. The aroma is hopped with dryness and yeastiness. The flavour is gently bitter with a yeastiness and roastedness. Over an average standard tasting lager.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Malty pale lager with a slightly more substantial flavor profile than others in its class. There is some of the common trashy adjunct flavor in there and isn’t as clean or crisp as I like my pale lagers to be. Overall decent.

golden brown color, medium sweetness, lightly bitter, medium body, average carbonation. Overall, this is my favorite beer. Nice smooth taste, perfect for a dip in the Jacuzzi at 1 AM. but perfect for parties, dinner, or just to chill.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a rich clear dark gold with a thin off white head. Aroma of thick rich malt, maybe a hint of dark fruit. Flavor is much more subtle than the aroma would imply. Very dry and crisp. Body is medium, very nice for such a dry beer. Finish is dry as well and perfectly balanced.
