A little hoppy - below average taste. Fizzed over when opened for no apparent reason.

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tall pilsner glass.

Appearance: Pale, straw yellow color with thick, lacy head that persists for several minutes.

Aroma: Underwhelming with slight hints of floral aromas.

Flavor: Somewhat bland hops with grass and straw flavors.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied, minimal bitterness with lots of carbonation. The carbonation lingers more than the flavors.

Overall, this lager is not very distinctive from the domestic mass-produced standards. It's easily drinkable, but probably should come in 30 pack cans.

12 oz can. Pours clear light golden with a medium pillowy white head that retains well and leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is sweet bready caramel malts and noble hops and a little fruit.

The flavor is sweet bready toffee malts with a medium spicy noble hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with some spritzy carbonation and a little watery.

Overall, a decent fairly well balanced lager - still a little sweet for me.

12 oz bottle into Flying Dog chalice. some date on the label states 01xx13. I assume its a best before...?

A: a blond brew. a bit hazy for a lager. unless this was their intention...bubbly bright white head. retention is good, with some frothy lacing left behind.

S: cardboard. smells stale. lots of oxidation going on here. virtually no hop aroma. let's see how this translates to the flavor.

T: as suspected, very oxidized. lots of stale flavors, cardboard, spent hop flavor, there is some chewy pilsner-like grain, but unfortunately the oxidation is the main player.

M: average amount of carb. light bodied.

D: I suspect this thing was close to its expiration date, however I don't thing this oxidation happened overnight. come on flying dog, you're better than this. pass.
