vyvvy (4135) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 2, 2007
Pours clear bronze with a bubbly light tan head. The aroma has well toasted smooth malt, some nuttiness and a bit of hops. Medium crisp body with quite a bit of sharp carbonation. The taste starts with dark toasted nutty malt and dry caramel. The finish adds some earthy / spicy hops A very respectable lager.

Harsebrau (227) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - AUG 29, 2007
Brown and clear with an off tan, frothy head. Good lacing for the duration. Malty sweet aroma. This beer was better than I thought it would be. Clean and sweet and asking for salty foods. More hop prescense than I expected. It added a crispness that was very nice.

beastiefan2k (2525) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - AUG 27, 2007
Pours a clear dark brown, slightly orange-ish with a small head. Aroma is present with macro-corn, caramel sweetness and some West Coast citrus hops. Taste is smooth with light lagered sweetness and again some felt hoppiness but more flroal and earthy. Finishes with low bitterness and a lagered fruitiness. Lighted bodied with average carbonation. Gets some bonus points for reppin my old hood, the big C.I. in BROOKLYN!!!!!!! Iím telling you this will be a collectors item one day. 22oz bomber, Rodenbach Grand Cru smaller tulip glass.

Pour is a dark brown with a large soapy white head. Aroma is nice crisp hop with a huge helping of caramel malts. Flavor is about the same. Some pine hops with a very caramel malt backbone. Deffinatly not a typical lager but worth having around the house for a lazy afternoon.

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - AUG 23, 2007
In the bomber bottle from Beertopia. Pours amber with a medium-sized thick fluffy ivory colored head. I think that this beer might make me realize what the term "Session Beer" really means! It has a mild aroma of flowery nectar water and subdued hops. This is smooth and easy to drink. The mild hop bitterness at the finish is mildly pine-like. Has a great palate and is perfectly hopped for such a medium bodied lager. The brilliance to this beer is that it does not over or under state anything. Yummy and worth drinking often.

Ughsmash (7182) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 22, 2007
Bomber. Poured clear healthy caramel with lots of rising carbonation and a short cap of beige head. The aroma was quite enjoyable with wet grass and bready sweetness accented by ample doses of floral and citrusy hoppage.. very Czech-lagery as one might say. Flavor was even better.. crisp bread and fruity notes at the core with bright citrus and floral bitterness leaving an exclamation on the finish. Crisp and clean on the palate with a smooth flow. Didnít see this one coming!

apoptosis (1317) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 22, 2007
Highly filtered, with a big-bubbled, off-white head over a copper-colored body. Dark for a lager. Iíll start with my favorite part of this beer: the finish. It is very smooth and fruity. Crisp and clean. The flavor is mild but good. Very malty. It really does taste pretty much like a Czech-style lager. Good.

notalush (5000) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 22, 2007
Clear copper beer, with a pillowy white head that is well-sustained by the bubbly body - spicy european hop aroma, with notes of butter and bread - the flavor is fairly robust - crisp hop bite up front, followed by some biscuit and gingerbread, then some butter and caramel come into play - some light peppery hints and a long-lingering hop profile - it gets a bit sweet near the end, but the hops do a nice job of keeping it in check - this seems more like a Vienna than anything else, and a fairly tasty one at that.

sneagrams3 (2337) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - AUG 18, 2007
22oz bomber. Filtered with an evolving amber to golden hue. Finger width of creamy off-white head. Sweet citrusy cereal aromas. Touch doughy. Medium bodied with a nice crisp palate. Dry and effervescent. Good malt character. Cookie and caramel. Nice bitterness. Nice and big for the style. Great swirl around the mouth. Only down side is the soapy lingering flavor. The finish is big and bright. Spicy peppery piney citrusy hops. Iíll be having more of these!

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - AUG 17, 2007
Bottle @ the Coney Island Freak Show. Amber with a dense creamy head. Has a nice chewy body and a sweet caramel malt aroma, along with spicy hops. Has a European Strong Lager feel to it. Lots of bready, caramel malts to give it body. Along with peppery zesty hops (Hallertau) that balance it nicely. A well made lager.
