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.

Draft: Bubbly, hazy gold with a short, white head. Honey, grass, grain scent. Slightly bitter grain malt taste. Grassy hops. Pretty easy-drinking.....not bad.

16 ounce can, Ive 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 isnt 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 theres also a bit of apple and pear noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium, its smooth and a bit coating with moderate carbonation. I thought this was a solid overall brew. Id like to try a fresher can of this in the future. Worth a try.

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.

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... its 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

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 brewerys best.

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.

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 doesnt overpower, but it is definitely present, and is quite pleasant. Easy afternoon quaff. Recommended.
