ClarkVV (4348) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - AUG 27, 2015
Draught at Atwater in the Park, Summer 2014.
Clear, very light golden body has lazy carbonation coursing upwards to form a small, poorly-retained white head.
Well, looks like another terrible bottled product from Atwater Block. The draught version was passable, though thereís really no comparison between the beers brewed at the Detroit location vs. the beers brewed at the In the Park location. Very dry, grassy, leafy hops with some biscuity/grainy maltiness, maybe a touch of corn-like character and no alcohol.
Dry, at least, with soft herbs, minimal spiciness and pretty straightforward white bread-like maltiness. Ample, yet loose carbonation dosent really add much crispness and it does come off a bit fizzy and very watery. Eh, had worse, but will stick to the Park-brewed beers next time Iím there.

bottled (variety case) - pale golden color. Not much aroma - smells like a wheat beer. Flavor is just ok. Nothing special.

czar (5843) - Quťbec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 6, 2014
pours hazy pale yellow with a thin white cap, some retention and lacing. crisp pils with a touch of bread, other cereals, faint fruitiness - hint of white grapes, lemon, pepper, grass and herbs - nobleness, sulfur. moderately low carbonation, light body - tad watery, dry grassy-herbal finish. relatively clean and tasty enough.

ARH (861) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2014
12oz bottle poured into a stemmed tulip. The aromas are a notable bread and straw with some mineral-like notes and a touch of lemon. Itís a clear, effervescent pale with a puffy white head. The head leaves an abundant messy lace. Itís a medium bitter with a light sweet and a touch of salty. The creamy, soft carbonation, has a grainy, creamy texture and a medium light body. A spicy, buttery toast, mineral, and lemon peel finish leaves behind a clean spicy and buttered toast flavor.

alobar (3128) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Clear straw yellow pour with no head. Aroma of grain and must. Mediocre flavor of grain and lemon. Not much to it.

Bottle. Clear yellow with a white head. Sour malt and sweet grain. Pretty clean and neutral.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - OCT 7, 2013
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2013 Bottle: clear straw with some lighter yellow hints, capped off with a very small grazing of thin, white foam. Aroma is heavily loaded with a raw graininess, mild metallic notes, and a very faint dusting of some leafy hops. Light mustiness, but mostly loaded with a strange grain-y note. Taste is very watered down. Not much to it, at all. More grains, kind of metallic-y sweet in a weird way. A little bit of grassy/leafy hops, but they donít command the presence Iíd like. The malts themselves donít show up too much, either. Just a bland, pretty boring beer that doesnít really deliver at all.

Alextricity (509) - Michigan, USA - SEP 9, 2013
Drank straight from the bottle at Green Dot Stables in Detroit, Michigan. Appearance: As I said, straight from the bottle. After a few glass swirls, there was a pretty impressive head going on in the glass... minimal bottle lacing. Appeared to not be hazy through the brown bottle. Smell: A lot of hay aromas out of this ... some sweetness. Not much of a malt presence, in my opinion. Really just smelled slightly better than an adjunct lager. Taste: Meh. Semi-sweet hay and maybe corn flavors. Iím not sure if adjuncts are used here, but itís not all-too impressive. Half way through the bottle, I had basically had enough. Itís drinkable and fine, but thereís nothing great about it ... thereís not much to get excited of in terms of most pilseners, but this was ESPECIALLY one to be unimpressed by. Decent. Drinkable. Alright. Not something Iíll seek out again, but itís definitely not terrible.

jsmerig (1357) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Pours a pale yellow with a foamy white head. Aroma of light grain grass an lemon. Taste is sweet and mellow up front with a nod towards noble hops in the finish. Mouthfeel is smooth. Could use a bit more depth in the flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
