GT2 (7863) - Carlsbad, California, USA - AUG 22, 2011
Growler at Shenandoah Throwdown. Poured a clear golden yellow with a healthy, bright white head. Nose is pretty muted with older malt and honey. Opens to fresh dough. Taste is sweeter, mild soap, ending with some mealy apple type of flavors but nothing bad. No butter, no flaws. Extremely simple Helles lager.

3fourths (7797) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 14, 2013
Draft at GABF 2013. Pale malt expressed as biscuits, crackers, faint sourdough bread. Yeast and water give is a mineral / vitamin smell to go with faint huskiness. Comparable to Full Sail Session Lager, which i also a little husky, mineraly and sometimes eggy / sulfuric. Medium high acid, frothy carbonation, enjoyable dryness with some lemon oil hop showing through after it warms a bit.

Had this during the 2011 Shenandoah Throwdown, growler courtesy of Paul. Pours a clear yellow gold with a large white head. Nice floral notes with touches of vanilla as it warms. Crisp and clean, light grain and toast. Lightly sweet, very crisp, with a touch of grain. Clean and cool, super sessionable. Very nice stuff.
