Rosemary, caraway, and possibly sage on the nose. Very herbal, but a nice combination. Clear yellow, thick puffy lacing head. Distinct sage flavor with a sweet hay base. Orange peel and perhaps lime zest too. Light body. Grassy finish. Iím real hard on this style since there are so many bad examples available, but this is delicious.

Bottle of 33 cl. 7.5%. Perfect and persistent foam. The nose of fresh hops and herbal notes. In the mouth itís like I imagined: the bitter and long is impressive. Despite this it still feels the sweet presence of malt. Great beer!

phaleslu (7173) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2011
375 ml bottle from Wine and Cheese Place. Nice to see DFH anything in St. Louis, even if only because it was a collaboration brewed in Italy. Pours a cloudy yellow-gold color with a medium, even, fizzy white head. Aroma of grassy hops, faint citrus, hay, dry grains and cereal, and white bread dough. Flavor of grassy hops and herbs, citrus, melon and subtle tropical fruits, and crackers. Light-bodied, with a dry, crisp mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Really nice job with this style, which I normally donít like very much. Better than the one brewed at DFH for sure (which was also pretty strong for the style).

BeerandBlues2 (10496) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 21, 2011
Bottle. Pours clear dark gold with a large, creamy and frothy white head, long retention with good lacing. Aroma is heavy Pilsener malt and Noble hops; clean lager character. Flavor is moderate malt with medium, bitter spicy, earthy, and herbal hops, light fruit notes, a dry finish. Medium body, warmth, and carbonation.

Kinz (3410) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - AUG 20, 2011
Hazy gold, attractive creamy white head. Big citric hop nose, lots of pineapple. Flavor is very lightly of pils malt, moving into a finish that is citric, touch of pine, floral and spicy - just a load of hops. Interesting that the malt profile here doesnít seem to be quite as distinct as what I recall on the draft version I had at DFH. But still a very enjoyable beer. Same note that this isnít as "clean" as some may like in a pils.

portableparty (2000) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 17, 2011
Bottle pour thanks (DalzAle). Pours pale yellow gold with a creamy soapy white head that fades to a film. Aroma is hoppy and dry. Taste is more bittering hops and malt with some lemon citrus notes. Palate is full and chaulky and finishes dry.

DalzAle (2001) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - AUG 16, 2011
Bottle. Clear dark golden pour, little bit of carbonation and a light white pepper nose. Flavor is light fruit, honey sweet and slightly spicy on the finish. Decent.

boFNjackson (4185) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 13, 2011
Bottle... Poured golden orange with a thick white head. Really solid, lovely hop floralness and bitterness. Sweet with malts for balance and a short, satisfying finish. Hints of honey, cereal grains, rye, tea leaves, grass, and tropical fruits. Clean, smooth palate, and a decent amount of bitterness all the way through.

Pours hazy dark golden color with white head. Fruity aroma with citrus hops and bread dough. Very floral. Moderately sweet fruit flavor with some lemon and grapefruit and dough. Medium body with lively carbonation. I enjoyed this one much more than the one brewed at DFH.

TomDecapolis (4603) - Milton, Delaware, USA - AUG 8, 2011
12.7 oz bottle. Pours almost 100% flat. No hiss when opening at all, no head and no noticeable carbonation bubbles. Aroma of bready pilsner malt, great noble hop notes, spicy hops and citrus notes. Flavor of tea, bready pilsner malt, spicy, citrusy and floral noble hops. The no carbonation killed this beer. For the money I paid...kinda ticked too. Maybe itís just the bottle I had, but still...
