NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 17, 2007
Draft in Jacksonville. Nice toasted grain aroma, sweet malt notes. The body is a transparent yellow/gold color and holds a diminishing, wispy white head. Fore holds malt/grain and light toasted cereal/malt notes. Lightly hopped. It really is smooth and easy to drink just as I assume they were aiming for.

Pours a light straw yellow color with a white head. Aroma is light pilsner malts with a hint of spice. Flavor is malty, grainy, with a light spicy finish.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - JUN 10, 2007
Sampler at the Nashville location - Poured ayellow amber in color with a whitish head that lasted a while. Aroma was weak, but had some malt and was slightly sweet. Flavor was also not strong, but matched the aroma fairly well, so no surprises (unfortunately). Finish is slightly sweet. Not very good, but could be drinkable if nothing better was available.

NachlamSie (2723) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 2, 2007
Draught during my NC brew tour. This is definitely a true American lager. It’s very light in every aspect with the most assertive note being that of cardboard. Par for the brewpub light beer course.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - DEC 7, 2006
Draft at Chattanooga location. Golden in the glass with a white head. The aroma was subdued but a light citrus and grain was detected. The flavor was of wheat and citrus. Light body and watery.

Sample glass at the brewpub. Not bad for a light beer. I normally dont like light beers in general, but this one didnt taste like seltzer water. Decent malt on the front end and a reasonable body given what it is. It would have rated even better except for a slight off flavor of starchy grain at the end. Low alcohol is always a negative for me, but not for some. This was easily my least favorite of the brewpub’s lineup, but not undrinkable.
