2.8/5  rDev -15.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

Part of the "Family Reunion" mixed six pack.
Aggressively poured into a 12 ounce hotel glass. The color of iced tea with a short-lived, off-white head. Closer in color to an amber than a pale.
Smell is caramel, malt, hops and a hint of grass. Decent balance at best.
Taste is malt, light caramel, hops and grass notes as well. The nose is actually stronger than the taste if you can believe that. Balance is biased to the malt.
Sharp effervescence, almost harsh in its presence. Medium bodied and pleasant after the harshness subsides. I suppose this would be a better received beer on a hot day but as I'm just watching football the weaknesses stand out a bit more.

3.74/5  rDev +12.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Tan, with molasses hints. Clear.

Smell: Sweet malty notes, but not overpowering.

Taste: This is a hoppy lager, but if I hadn't known that I would have sworn that it was a brown ale with a bit of zest.

Mouthfeel: A bit thin, but the end rounds out nicely.

Overall: Enjoyable and very drinkable.

3.55/5  rDev +6.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a medium golden color with huge frothy white head that slowly recedes. Aromas of earthy mineral water atop grainy sweet bread. Light earthy hop aroma. The flavor is a bit malty sweet with a light earthy fruitiness. Medium to full body with a moderate level of carbonation. So far I liked this on the most from the mixed 12 pack I got. Its a decent lager, not horribly complex or continental inspired, but drinkable just the same.
