his beer is really tasty and you can taste the extra Hallertau in there. Just a great looking beer with a huge fluffy white head. Doughy and grainy and delightful.

On tap at the brewery, I was impressed by the crisp, clean and fresh taste of this pale lager.Mild but interesting hints of banana and citrus make this a very well crafted beverage. I feel like eyedrinkale and I are the only ones who ’get’ this... more for us then!!!!

On draught at Big Rock Chophouse, 5/9/10

Straw, little head, fine lacing, balanced hop and malt, mild citrus aroma, very thin mouthfeel. Mild carbonation. Highly drinkable at 4.5% and very tasty. A very good pale lager.

unclemike (2222) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - DEC 5, 2011
This one pours a clear golden color with a small, fizzy white head. The aroma is slightly hoppy and grainy with some hay and grass notes. It has a light body with medium carbonation and a smooth, creamy mouthfeel. The flavor is slightly malty with a touch of hops and grains. The finish is moderately sweet

hotstuff (4066) - Indiana, USA - MAR 21, 2008
Draft at Big Rock Chop House & Brewery.White head that quickly dissipated, no lacing, very little carbonation, transparent, and a pale yellow hue. Nose was malty and crisp.Flavor was malty, crisp and refreshing.Sightly tingly, crisp mouthfeel.Medium in body.Quaffable, easy drinking and might qualify as a decent lawnmower brew.

alexsdad06 (5359) - Ohio, USA - JUL 5, 2009
On tap @ BRCH. First sample of the day. Pours a pale yellow with a medium sized white head. The aroma was griany and bready with a touch of citrus fruit. The flavor was crisp light citrus over a grainy, bready base. There is just not enough there to grab hold of. Decent for what it is.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAR 21, 2008
This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a transparent softly carbonated yellow colored body and a fair lacing. The mild aroma was wheat. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The thick flavor contained notes of malt mild hops diacetyl and grass.

auerbrau (3164) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - MAY 9, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 12, 2008 12oz Bottle. Noses in applesauce and sewage treatment plants. Enteric and sour. Pours a lightly clouded lemon-yellow juice, with a rim of off-white. Soured, thin, lightly wheat malt sugar. Weird rocky carbonation. A little bit too much alcohol. Malts laid back and soured. Lightly lactic. Gross. Seltzer body. Meh. Thanks Steve!

beerbill (3367) - Laurel, New York, USA - DEC 6, 2011
22 oz. bottle courtesy of a trade with mikem409. Pours a clear pale gold with a moderate white head that fades to a film by the second sip and leaves very little lace. The aroma is strongly reminiscent of fermenting bread dough, but with a sour twang to it. The flavor is exactly like undercooked Bisquick pancakes. Not something I am looking for in a beer. Thin, watery body. It’s beers like this that give me pause to consider re-rating Coors, etc.

Tap: standard pale golden lager. Little head, decent lacing though. Aroma to me was musty. Almost no flavor whatsoever.
