jcr (2112) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUN 19, 2010
Bottle. Clear, golden body. Frothy, white head, rapidly diminishing. Aroma is sweet, grassy. Notes of cookie, hay and toast. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter and lightly acidic. The finish is lightly sweet, lightly bitter and lightly acidic. Medium body, thin, watery texture, lively carbonation. First whiff leaves the impression of a promising aroma. But that’s about it. Balance is off. Aftertaste is vegetative and grainy.

5000 (6031) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Bottle:   Pale straw, very light, very clear, a few bubbles of carbonation, moderately sized frothy head, white, decent lacing.   Grainy nose, some straw/hay, but mainly very earthy.   Doesn’t seem to have any sweetness.   Dry on the tongue, very very earthy, grainy, yeah, certainly seems Organic.   No sweetness at all, none.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate, a little airy.   Big soily finish.   Maybe its just me, but organic lighter beers shine so much of that earthy/soily character that it just detracts.   A bigger beer with more hops and some sweetness can counter that, but as this is just way too soily.   Not clean, crisp, or my kind of drink.   Lingering cereal on the finish.   My only advice, try something hoppier and/or sweeter such as an IPA or Amber.   Meh...

TheBeerGod (5053) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 13, 2009
Bottle courtesy of maniac at the 8th Richmond Gathering. Pours blond. Short white head. Aroma is cereal, light honey and stale malt. Taste is malty with more cereal notes, light honey and grassy hops. Body is light and bubbly. Ends with more malt, cereal, faded honey and grassy hops. Not too terrible.

Cavie (3672) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - MAR 4, 2009
So right before I sampled this beer, a comment popped up that likened it to earwax. I wish I hadn’t read that because I think that ruined it for me. It does have a pretty nasty bitterness to it. It’s even the same color too!

Did not enjoy at all. No flavor to speak of, and way too much soapy white head. Take a big pass on this one.

notalush (4640) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 3, 2009
Thanks to cbkschubert for the bottle - pours a fizzy, semi-hazy pale gold, but fails to kick up a head - strong noble hop aroma, bordering on skunky, but never quite getting there - rather strong, dry, grassy hops combine with crackery malts to create a nearly chalky, tongue-curling dryness - but somehow the strong hop profile makes this much less unpleasant than it sounds - however, there are other flaws - flavors of metal and pool water arrive late, detracting from the relative tastiness of the hops - man that is sad - oh well, another crappy organic beer.

highibus (699) - Vail, Arizona, USA - DEC 29, 2008
Pours a semi-clear straw color and white thin head leaves some decent lacing. Aroma of light grass and a touch of sweetness. Flavor is mellow but not missing. Straw with a touch of hop finish. Not bad but a style I don’t really care for.
