Taste is medium sweet, grassy, some grapefruit/earthy, light honey, apple. Light-medium body, some crispness, light duskiness, acidity, very drinkable. This is great!

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
1L growler from New Beer Distributors. Very pale orange-golden colour with a thick white head. The aroma shows great fresh zesty hop aroma. There is also a soft fresh maltiness. A touch of honey and lemony citrus. Lightly sweet on the back of the palate. Some lingering sweetness and a lovely herbal hop flavour on the back. Very tasty pils.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft pour at the Brickskellar in DC, where they incorrectly told me that this was the same beer as Golden Era. No, it’s not, guys. Clear medium dark yellow or gold colored body with a medium sized thick white head. Crisp and fresh, with a moderately presence of yeast but it’s mostly clean, lightly pillowy and not at all muddying. Fresh, fluffy, light, clean tasting, lightly dry on the back, moderately sweet, and then turning a small bit bitter with a husky grain flavor, but never too forward or strong. A solid pils all around.

Pours yellow with a generous white head. Smells of dry malt, lots of peppery hints, some resiny hints. Tastes lightly bitter and spicy with a dry malty finish. Enjoyable.

Draft at the brewery in DE. Pours a light yellow orange body. DFH hops the shit out of it. I more or less have a number to go on.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2008 On the beer menu, this was "cleverly" misspelled as "Johnny Rotten." Oh, well. It’s a sessionable lager having a clear yellow body with plently of bubbles and a frothy head that sheeted the glass with lace. The aroma seemed a bit subdued, some sweet pale malts and a light grassy hoppiness. The hops increased in the flavor adding a solid bittering to the beer. I’d repeat it, but wouldn’t go far out of my way for it.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler courtesy of mday. Served in a tulip.
Pours a very hazy yellowish-golden color with a big fluffy white head and a good amount of lacing. Very hazy throughout. Kind of strange for the style, but I’m guessing Dogfish didn’t really intend this to be just an American Pale Lager, so I’m going to go with it looks good. The nose is pretty nice with some bright citrus aroma and a bit of mild bready sweetness. Good hops. The taste lets back a bit from that but the combination of citrus and bitterness is quite nice. A good tone of bitterness throughout. Body is fairly light and this is quite drinkable. Solid beer.
