2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sample at CBC. Clear yellow pour with a medium white head. Malty nose, but something is off. I originally described it as toilet water, but it’s actually more like pool water. Very chlorine heavy. Flavor is creamy and butter with some grassy hop for balance. Flavor isn’t too bad for a summer session beer, but the nose definitely needs some work.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle… Hazy, straw-colored ale with a small, fizzy, white head. The bouquet is of pale malt, stale white bread and lemon peel. Full-bodied with laid-back carbonation. The flavor is of biscuit malt and earthy hops. Mojave-dry finish. Thanks to DragonStout for the bottle!

12oz bottle from BeerVirgin72 - thanks, Dawn! I found this a very refreshing brew, almost a more clean and spicy version of the yeasty, sedimental Kellerbier I’m more familiar with. Maybe a cross with a pils if that makes any sense. Hazy pale gold, nice carbonation, medium mouthfeel. Nothing world-beating about this beer, but I enjoyed it.

Bottle Pours out a cloudy straw topped with a foam white head. Aroma of light lemon zest and some sour notes. Taste a little of the citrus along with a little wheat.

Bottle pours a hazy dingy pale yellow Spicy sweet lemony aroma. Slightly skunky lemony light grain flavor. Very high carbonation and a soft wheaty after taste with a surprisingly bitter trailer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A pleasant enough lager, smoky taste of crisp bittering hops, just enough body for a summer beer that doesn’t go all the way to lawnmowerland. They say it’s unfiltered, but you could read the newspaper through the bottle I poured... a difference between bottle and tap, perhaps?

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Brew Week in Athens. Light om color, with no head. I’m expecting the typical fruity wheat beer. But, this is actually quite smooth. Some fruity notes, but not overbearing and not cloying.
