From draft sampler at Great Crescent sometime during 2013. Somewhat muted pale lagery aroma with a spicy note, predominantly sweet flavor, a tad syrupy, not much balancing bitterness. Not bad but nothing to climb mountains for either. Patrickctenchi (6750) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAY 19, 2015

Bubbly, hazy gold with a short, white head.
Honey, grass, grain scent.
Slightly bitter grain malt taste.
Pretty easy-drinking.....not bad.
16 ounce can, I’ve had this in the fridge for a while so I have no idea how old it is or when I bought it. Head retention is decent, and there isn’t much lacing. Served in a pilsener glass, the beer pours a slightly hazy dark gold color with almost an inch off-white head. The brew smells like bready and caramel malt, along with some light herbal/minty hops. Taste is pretty much just like the aroma, but there’s also a bit of apple and pear noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium, it’s smooth and a bit coating with moderate carbonation. I thought this was a solid overall brew. I’d like to try a fresher can of this in the future. Worth a try. shigadeyo (3797) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 2, 2013

4/13/2011: Great Crescent Brewery Aurora Lager... Aroma: Interesting... Herbal and citrus peel. Appearance: Large, fluffy off-white head; cloudy orange color. Flavor: Bright citrus peel and plenty of floral nots with a mild bitterness. Palate: Medium-bodied; soft, but nice mouthfeel. Overall: Nice Summer-y beer.
1 pint can from Pour House Bottle Shop in Aurora, IN. Rating #9 for this beer.
Solid very drinkable lager. I liked the clear brilliance and clean finish. Have one.

From on tap at the Brewriver GastroPub as one of their "Flight" sampler serving. This one is a golden lager with a touch more heaviness due to the aging... it’s yellow with a white head of foam and nice lacing, but I found the finish watery.

16oz can. A little pool of foam forms on the top of the can when I open it. Over-filled? Huge foamy thick off-white head, little bubbles on the side of glass. Surprisingly soft carbonation. Clear golden color. Medium body. Some sparce lace. More dry finish. Nice lemon taste, light spice notes, grains - pretty flavorful for a lager. Nice zesty sweet taste, a little tangy. Maybe a little banana or kiwi flavor in there. Better than expected. Nice to enjoy with my subway sandwich olsonerr (90) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2012
Clear appearance with slightly fuller color than anticipated. Soft, pleasant hop aroma, mostly floral. Drink is crisp, with morw hop bitterness than expected, and a minty-ish finish. Really impressive for this style and, I think, the brewery’s best. Tmoney99 (15040) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Draft at BrewRiver. Poured hazy golden color with a large head that lasted with a good lacing. Medium balanced aroma. Light to medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor and medium bittersweet finished of moderate duration. Soft drinkable beer. rondphoto (4494) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUN 30, 2012

Can shared by shigadeyo. Poured hazy golden color with a large head that lasted with a good lacing. Medium balanced aroma. Light to medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor and medium bittersweet finished of moderate duration. Very drinkable.
Clear medium amber with a full, long-lasting head and splotches of lace. Taste and smell unite into a clean malt with grapefruit citrus overtones, followed by a light, but distinct, hop finish. The flavor doesn’t overpower, but it is definitely present, and is quite pleasant. Easy afternoon quaff. Recommended.
