2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark yellow; malt, caramel and herbal hops on the nose; reasonably complex - I like the herbal hop combo, yeast accent, but it’s still a little light.

The first beer from this new microbrewery is a crystal clear, pale golden coloured lager. It has a somewhat papery nose, is light to medium bodied, rather dry, and has a big, late, rather sharp hop bitterness. Throw in more malt and make it more complex, and you’ve got a real good beer.
