jmm635 (991) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2016
Enjoyed from a can. Sweet corn and bready on the nose. Bitter up front but finishes with light sweetness. Just a bit dank. For a lager, thick and chewy on the palate.

wombat23 (602) - Texas, USA - APR 22, 2016
Draft at The Flying Saucer, Nashville. Clear golden with a white head. Aroma and taste is grain, apple, and lager-like. May need to re-rate due to tap line issues.

HopTsing (546) - Sandston, Virginia, USA - MAR 16, 2016
From the bottle poured a pale, piss yellow brew with a nice white head. Fruity, malty, hoppy aroma with notes of metal flavors. Lite bodied with malt/hop balance leaning towards the hop side just a little. OK.

Radek Kliber (7113) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - FEB 12, 2016
Where and how: c. 355 ml
Aroma: medium intense, fairly forward grainy feel, mild herbal hop side to it.
Appearance :
Top: small, short lived white cap.
Base: golden with fine haze
Palate : medium, medium-thin, fairly chewy texture. Frisky carbonation. Average length of finish.
Taste: that thin in body but work was clean with good crisp character. It is softer at walls. Pleasant well made what could it be Dortmunder?

OnTheTrail (332) - Virginia, USA - JAN 27, 2016
Pale yellow, big but quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is mostly malty, maybe a bit of sweet corn. Taste is on the sweet side, maybe starchy fruit like banana? Mouthfeel is light and crisp.
