3.39/5 rDev -10.1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
12oz bottle into pilsner glass.
A: very clear. very bright golden body. head is pretty bright white. frothy. good retention. minimal lacing.
S: very malty. not getting much hop aroma here. cant tell if there is a hint of metallic flavor or not. a rich pilsner focused malt aroma seems to be bulk of the aroma.
T: sort of metallic. minerally. lots of grain. really malty, a little corny. bitterness is plenty. cant tell if the mineral flavor is European hop derived or more metallic.
M: moderate amount of carb. medium body.
D: cant decide about this one. definitely a rich lager but I cant tell if there is a metallic off-flavor or some light dms going on here. might need some refining in the brewing process to clean this up, but has a good starting point.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours an amber color. The head is a one finger off-white shade with a nice, creamy texture. While the retention isn't the best, it does leave some lacing behind on the glass.
S: It's kind of hard to decide what's in the aroma. Okay, I pick up some floral hops, and maybe some herbs, as well. Oh, and some nondescript citrus tones. The malts in particular are too strange for me to like this aroma. A shame.
T: If the aroma was somewhat indecipherable, then the flavor is almost totally indecipherable. I get wisps of defined notes - herbs, grass, citrus, ginger, malt - in random places, but nothing that pops out. This beer is messy and, frankly, not very good. It's also metallic.
M: Full and creamy, yet not too sweet. Normally, I'd enjoy that, but since I don't like the flavor, it's hard to approve of the mouthfeel, either. Carbonation could be a little stronger.
O: Meh. Every once in a while sipping this, I'll think "hey, it's a decent brew", and then the next sip later, I go back to think "meh, don't like this very much". And there are even some sips where I consider a drainpour. Luckily, I toughed this one out - and I can safely say this is the only one I'll tough out.
