rayOfBeer (663) - El Cerrito, California, USA - OCT 30, 2013
Tap: orange-amber with large frothy white head. Aroma is definitely lager-like, with grass, bisquit, and some wet newspaper. Flavor is crisp with a dry bitter grass, a hint of honey but no sweetness, and bisquit. It is good for the style, but not my favorite type of beer. Good cold on a hot day.

Fatehunter (1179) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Poured minimal head on a clearer, medium straw colored body. The aroma is faint; a little grain smell comes through. The taste is grainy, mild bitterness with caramel which rounds it out nicely. The texture is crisp but soft with moderate carbonation. Overall, a nice and easy drink.

Draft. Clear light amber pour, with an off white head. Stale malt, caramel, some doughy sweetness, and light metallic hops. This beer doesn’t interest me.
