3.5/5  rDev +6.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

I poured this into a ipa glass.
It has a golden color body with a small thin, foamy head. The aroma gives off a pale, lager malt notes, no hops present. The tastefirst starts off with a lager flavor then some citrus hop come in on the finish. Thw mouthfeel is definitely more like a lager than a ipa. Overall its good but in my own opinion it needs to be more balanced.

The appearance was an rich amber color. The smell had some fruit notes in it (apricot). . Not bitter or strong when going down, smooth. When poured a nice thick head forms. Nothing special otherwise about the beer Although I could see my self purchase another should the occasion arise.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

Tried in the middle of the day after mowing the lawn. Very refreshing for a lager style beer. Good smell and slight carbonation with a flat mouthfeel if thats possible. Slight nutty taste. Smells of a cross between IPA and dark lager

Purchased at Eskimo Hutt Lubbock

If it's from a dream machine, it must be good. From a 12 ounce bottle, on to the beer:

It doesn't look like a pale lager, as it has an amber color with reddish hues. A half-inch of fuzzy head sits on top with adequate retention, leaving a few spots of lace on the glass. It has a decent aroma, one with squirts of pine, earth, grainy, and a vague fruitiness.

This is not good. Having a bitter vegetal flavor is not a good way to be introduced. There is some toasted malt and overall some very herbal tones to the beer. It tastes "raw"; the hops aren't being worked and the malt base is mediocre. It has one thing going for it though; a soft mouthfeel.

If this is what comes out of Dream Machine, I'd be frightened to taste Nightmare Machine.
