superspak (3412) - Michigan, USA - JUL 13, 2015
12 ounce bottle into dimpled mug, bottled on 3/19/2015. Pours lightly hazy golden yellow color with a 1 finger dense white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of light lemon, cracker, bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt and earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of light lemon, cracker, bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light-moderate earthy/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of cracker, bread, herbal, grass, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance and robustness of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness after the finish. Incredibly clean on lager flavors with zero estery yeast notes present. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and slightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish as expected of 5%. Overall this is a damn nice kellerbier style. All around great robustness and balance of pale malt and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Yeast. It's lager bro! Crisp, little fruity. But tastes and smells an above average lager. Overall okay! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle:   Whitish yellow, soft sudsy white head, little lacing.   Doughy nose, slight grassiness.   Soft sweet grassiness on the tongue.   Very clean and crisp.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Soft grassy finish.   An unremarkable beer, but clean for what it is.   Probably great session beer for a hot day, or mowing the lawn!

Light wheat, lemon and a bit of orange, and a bit of lager yeast. A little bit of peppery spice comes through as it warms.

12 oz. bottle from jwLgd. Pours a clear dark golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma is grassy, lightly herbal, light citrus with some pale malts. The flavor is the same; grass, citrus, herbal, bready malts. Another beer that probably tastes better because I just finished mowing the grass.

DrSilverworm (8558) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 25, 2013
On tap during Ohio Brew Week 2013, taster from Lucky’s. Served in a plastic cup. Clear yellow color. Thin white head... Leaves good lace. Bready, lightly peppery lagery aroma. Lighter body. Lighter, crisp carbonation. More dry finish. Lightly citrusy light bitter taste. Lighter sweet. Good, drinkable, sort of refreshing hoppier summer lager

Nephilium (1498) - Ohio, USA - JUN 23, 2013
Starts with a lager aroma, and pours a clear light yellow with a small white head. Mild malt flavor, with some bittering hops in the finish. Very light body, and easy drinking. Not a bad summer beer.
