illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 22, 2012
Draft at Pharmacy. Pours straw golden with a white head. Lager esters in the aroma, with some faint herbal hops. Lighter side of medium bodied with average carbonation. Flavor of pale malts and biscuit, countered by a nice spicy and herbal european hop bitterness. Clean finish. Very nice, and paired well with my burger.

crossovert (7410) - Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
650ml bottle. Not the right bottle for a pilsner, and luckily its not actually imperial (thank god) but it is pretty watery and savory, not great.

Frank (2880) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
This is an example of a lager in which basically everything was done wrong. It is slightly cloudy and very pale. Nose is of yeasted bread dough and it is buttery and watery once tasted with vegetable bitterness in the finish. It is really not worth drinking.

nearbeer (3733) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Pint on tap. Clear golden with a lasting spot of foam. Nose is toasted maize, honey and dry grass. Taste is the same. Light-medium body is to the sweet side and has medium carbonation.

Strykzone (4933) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 20, 2014
Sampled on the bus during RBSG. Clear gold with a white head. Much more gentle than expected. Kind of sour and lemony with grass and citrus. Hmmm. Pleasantly surprised.
