    Aroma: 6 | Appearance: 7 | Mouthfeel: 7 | Flavor: 8 | Overall: 7

    Aroma is strong and crisp, malty and yeasty with a hint of honey sweetness. It pours a nice clear yellowish amber with a thick, if not persistent, white head. Flavor is richer than most golden lagers I have tried, malty and crisp with an interesting fruity undertone, the sort that I find mainly in ales. Texture is crisp and fizzy, leaving behind a nice tingle.

    Pours a dark golden color. Smell is sweet, grains. Taste is crisp, mild, some grains and malts. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.

    Pours a nice clear gold colour with a thin bubbly head. Not much retention,leaves a little lacing. More flavour than most lagers. Lots of carbonation Not bad.Could be a good beer to introduce swill drinkers to craft beer.

    This is a very solid beer. Somewhere between a rich Vienna and a crisp pils and exactly the flavor I think of when someone says "beer". A burnt gold color with a thin soapy head. Mild on aroma, malt and grass with touches of cereal/corn. Flavor is the maltyness of a Munich/Vienna style with the refreshing snap of a good pils. I could have a couple of these.

    I've been told that this is the best tasting lager in North america, and while it's up there, I'm not quite convinced this is the 'ONE'. A nice clear medium golden red colour with a rocky long lasting white head. Aroma is bread, grass, and floral hops. Flavour is a nice amalgamation of hops and malt that is crisp, clean, and refreshing as all get out.

    An orangish/amber color. Clear. Off white colored head that was small and didn't have much retention. Did have some nice lacing and several bubbles rising from the bottom. The smell had a nice bit of malt. Caramel, bread and a toasty biscuit. It smells clean and well balanced. The taste matched the aroma perfectly. Caramel, bread and biscuit. It did add an additional flavor of a light grain. Only a minor touch of bitterness. Medium mouthfeel. Dry and crisp. Left plenty on the palate. This is really a pretty nice little beer. Solid all around. Easy drinking an balanced well. Worth a try. Could be enjoyed year round. I don't think I would turn this down.

    Gold pour with a medium sized white head. Bready aroma with a subtle hint of hops. Smooth, malty flavor with just a bit of hop bitterness. This is a simple, but flavorful beer that would pair nicely with any food and work in any situation.

    This is a beer I've had both on draft and in bottle. Both versions pour a gold color with little head. The aroma is of bread and hops. The flavor is a good "beer" flavor. The only downfall is the beer is a little too carbonated for me; however, it is a beer I feel would please many different types of people especially at dinner parties.

    A very good Brew. Goes down very smooth. Thicker feel to it than normal. Mouth feel is excellent. Exquisite full flavored taste with an ever so slight bitter taste to it. I need to find me more of this. Will definitely drink again.
