Bottle. Pours golden orange with an off white head. Light sweet malty aroma with some spicy hints and a light must. The flavor has a sweet malt base with some spicy and herbal notes. Pretty good.

TheAlum (5530) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - NOV 11, 2010
Bottle courtesy of deyholla (and I’d be blacklisted if I didn’t specifically list his girlfriend, as the contributor). Pours a golden bright hue, a bit dulled, no haze, frothy filmed whitish head laces small, films. Aromas are funky skunky grains, a touch of pear, apple, grains, bread, faint sweet honey. Initial is light bodied, fruity tartness of pear and hardcore apple juice, touch of bread, grains, faint honey, vanilla, no real hop bitterness. Mellow sweetness, tart fruit, light funk or skunk. Mellow, slightly tart, a bit of skunk and shelf wear is evident. Dissappointing for it’s ranking, but not bad by any stretch.

A light ale throughout, a little bit of yeast in the flavor, but rather boring and simple otherwise.

rubbishystuff (1795) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 3, 2011
At Beckett’s Pale yellow color. Sweet. Didn’t have a lot of complexity. Very minerally. Serving: Bottle

Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - APR 22, 2005
Sample courtesy of Wohlfs. Golden yellow in color. Aroma and flavor of euro-lager skunk. Not too overwhelming though. Finishes with a unique sweet-bitterness. Just o.k.

GJF (1217) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - MAR 9, 2008
Poured a hazy gold with almost no head at all. Aroma was grassy with some fruit. Flavor was spicy with a bit of bubblegum to it. Body was a little thin and watery. It’s OK, but certainly not a standard of the style.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 14, 2002
Hay, alcohol, malt. That’s what I taste. Not good. The body looks light, but malty metallic tones make for a bad brew. Not recommended.

badgerben (4385) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUN 11, 2005
Dark yellow color with a medium head. Aroma of oranges and dust. Tasted like a slightly spiced vegetable smoothy with an ample supply of hay thrown in. Not necessarily terrible, but not my cup o’ tea.
