look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Bottle poured into pint glass
no freshness date

A: light brown, no head retention, there was a two finger head for almost a half minute
S: Good, hops and dark malts most evident

T: Miserable, water with some weird grasses

M: Water

This is a beer I would not have again. I would accept it if it was on draft to see if there would be a difference.

Decent smell, I like stronger beers so I was looking forward to it. But after I tasted it I was disappointed. This was not good at all, bad after taste too. I was tasted much smoother beers at much higher alcohol concentration. So overall I see no reason to buy this beer.

3.18/5  rDev +14%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

pours a 1" frothy off-white head with moderate, lasting lacing. from the bottle a slimy yellow turns to a proper, full golden body.

smells like your typical hoppy, boozy, "green" lager. strong.

tastes might pale and mighty hoppy. pungent. dense like a euro lager it's suppose to be.

mouthfeel is mighty boozy. tantalizing, bright on-bringing to a crisp, dry finish.

boozy beer. in the smell, taste, feel, and after effects.

3.08/5  rDev +10.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A - Solid yellow with a thin, if any head. Hazy but otherwise your normal looking beer.

S - A bright hoppy initial whiff that gives way to a malty-ness

T - Tastes like the smell of an American adjunct lager brewery. Lots of barley and a touch of alcohol with a tinny finish.

M - Big time carbonated and fairly thin with an aftertaste that seems a touch bitter and slightly soured.

O - not nearly the crisp and light beer that it's brother is.
