look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A mostly clear (a few particles floating), slightly yellowish-golden color Lager with a tight, slightly clingy head with small bubbles. The smell is sweet, tobacco-like, and nutty. Oddly, the smell reminds me of something I cooked recently...sweet potatoes! The taste is mildly sweet, followed by a slight nuttiness, with a cedary/pine finish. In my mouth the body is rounded and full. Overall, not quite what I expected from a lager, somewhat different, with very separate flavors.

This beer pours a mostly clear(some particulates) slightly yellowish golden color with a small bubbly tightly formed and slightly clingy head. The mouthfeel is full and rounded. The smell is very breadlike with a slight hoppiness. The taste is breadlike with a slight alcohol middle and a piney hoppy finish. A nicely balanced enjoyable lager.

A somewhat hazy golden color, the head passive and white, the lace slim. Nose is malt, fresh, clean, and hints of citrus. Start is malt, lightly sweet, top is middling, the finish is potently acidic, sparsely hopped, bone dry aftertase. Drinkable beer, but not something that excites me or my taste buds. Ranks #971 on my current 1000 beer master list.

Clear golden color with a nice ivory head and good carbonation throughout. Nice hop aroma. Grainy sweet flavor. Maybe a bit nutty (?) and a bit harsh. Medium bodied, creamy and rich.

IMO it was unremarkable. Lightly golden hue, foamy white head dissapeared relatively quick. Smells of lemon/orange zest. What really turned me off was the finish and after-taste. Over a few bottles over a few days, I noticed each time it had a harsh finish. It reminded me of stilton cheeses that had gone a bit bad. The aroma is the high point and it is rather dry which is somewhat nice but otherwise just not one to revisit.

Gold color, small head. Aroma is malty and slightly sweet smelling. A medium bodied lager, Lots of flavor for a lager. Maybe a touch sweet. Mild malts, slightly nutty flavor, balanced by slightly spicy hops. Mouthfeel is full. Aftertaste is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet. No doubt about it, A lager is a lager.
