Ernest (6199) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Rated at the brewery/restaurant Nov 2011. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, husks), lightly hoppy (herbs), with light notes of soap, metal, and sulfur. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, husky. Light body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Truly sad. Had high hopes here based on my friends’ good experience two years prior, but none of the lagers were any good on this day (the weissbier was good at least). Off notes abound here, and the finish was quite grainy. Very disappointing.

yngwie (13351) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 9, 2011
Bottle, at Plan B. A big, off-white to white head sits on top of a clear, golden body. Pale malts, fruityness and a nice grassy and flowery touch on the nose. The flavor has fruityness, pale malts, freshly mown grass and bitterness. The bitterness lingers. Dry, medium body and a bit too much carbonation, but not at disturbing levels. A very well brewed lager. 110527

Koelschtrinker (10504) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 1, 2011
Unauffällig herber Antrunk mit extrem unspektakulären Noten, soll heißen wenig getreidig und malzig. Nichts entwickelt sich, die Aromen bleiben lasch, das Bier fad. 7/6/6/5//6
