4.7/5  rDev +16%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Nice copper color with a creamy white head that laces down the glass as it is consumed.

S - Nice malty aroma with a hint of bittering hops.

T - Can I just say awsome. It does vary from week to week when I get my growlers refilled but it is a great symbol of the style. The bitterness is not at the extreme end of the style guideline but is a perfect balance with the malt flavors that come thru.

M - Clean and crisp. Nice lager like qualities.

D - Need I say more? I go back week after week for growler refills. Very drinkable.

3.7/5  rDev -8.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Arrives with a clear amber color and a frothy head; leaves quite a few dots of lace

Smell: Bready and slightly grainy with a hint of fruit

Taste: Bread and caramel up front, with a fruity and grainy bitterness developing by mid-palate; after the swallow the grainy flavor persists, though there is some fruit that lingers in the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: Medium body with moderate carbonation

Drinkability: A decent stab at the style for this new brewery but a little too grainy from my perspective
