2.79/5 rDev -16%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3
A: Amber, clear, moderate carbonation, pours with a finger sized head.
S: Malt, some caramel, didn't get much hops. The smell reminded me a little of the Boston Lager but without the hops and other more obvious smells that the Boston Lager has.
T: The taste on this was very different than the smell. You get a nice kick from the hops and the bitterness is very obvious on the initial taste and the after taste. You get some sweetness on the mid-palate but the flavor is definitely more hoppy than what I was expecting.
MF: The beer has a smooth and somewhat dry finish. The bitter mouthfeel at the end isn't very pleasing.
O: I was really surprised by this beer because of the taste. The nose had me expecting more of a malt flavor and instead gave me a bitter one. While I don't necessarily like bitter beers (like IPAs) I can appreciate hoppy beers such as Laguanitas or Arrogant Bastard because although they are bitter, the pack a lot of flavor that gives your palate a lot to work with. With this beer I felt there should have been more flavor and instead just got a mildly bitter beer with no real malt taste. I say this is an okay beer.

3.55/5 rDev +6.9%

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.
