2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Had on tap at the brewpub in August 2009. Poured a golden color with an okay head. The smell had some hop scent, but not nearly enough to call this an IPL. The hops that were there tasted faded and were somewhat off with a good amount of diacetyl, which made this one quite difficult to drink.
Serving type: on-tap

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bronze color with a a off-white head and decent lace. Light feel. Aromas of dough, pale malt and grains. Flavors start with sweet malt and lead to some grains and noble hops. A bit biting with a touch of pepper in the finish. A typical pre-pro type lager.
