BeerBlitz (72) - Roslyn, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 19, 2010
On draft at The Drafting Room, Spring House, PA. Aroma is of grassy hops and toasted malt. Maybe a little bread in there also. Color is a little too orange, with a minimal white head. Taste is fairly sweet, with the alcohol way too forward. Not tight and refreshing, like a Dortmunder.

Bottle - Light grains and some skunk. Clear gold with a decent head. Sweet and malty with some residual sugars in the finish. A bit sweet.

phaleslu (6335) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 6, 2014
Bottle at Wunderbar. Nifty shape; haven’t seen many like it before. But it’s a bright, totally clear green one. The beer itself pours a clear, bright gold without much head at all, just some negligible wisps of film and a partial, razor-thin ring. Aroma of toasted and doughy malts, grass, straw, and bits of nuts and earth. The flavor is way sweeter than anticipated, just really sweet and malty; some balancing straw, earth, almond, and a dash of spice. Medium-bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and a malty, sweet mouthfeel. Not bad, but too sweet and not really my thing.

Abijen (1415) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - AUG 3, 2014
Pours a golden clear beer with a good white head. Smells malts, honey. Tastes honey, malts and yeasts. Very sweet. Average carbo, thin body and a sticky texture.

Bork (122) - Rockmart, Georgia, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Slightly flat, sweet and malty with a notable alcohol presence appearing in the finish. Not bad but looks better than it tastes.

KoNrRiI (455) - Århus, DENMARK - JUL 31, 2014
0.33 bottle. Clear, dark amber color and a medium, white head. Simple, delicate aroma of hops and malts, seems very much like a typical pale lager. Taste is malty but with some slight, hoppy bitterness. Medium body, creamy texture, and soft carbonation. Finish is much sweeter and somewhat fuller than the flavor. Overall the beer has a nice palate but other than that it seems hackneyed and mediocre.

geologyguy (675) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - JUL 5, 2014
light pilsner smell....very malty taste....bitter finish...hard to tell if it’s the hops, but if so I don’t like this kind...sort of wet cardboard taste...poor

alexsdad06 (5359) - Ohio, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Bottle from old backlog notes 07. Pours a clear dark golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have caramel, honey, moderately spicy hops, some back fruity notes, finishes soft.

33cl bottle from Biernavigatie. Clear golden with a medium white head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Bitter with some sweet tones. Malts, yeast, grass and hops. Not my brew.

RobertDale (3391) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Sample at Hopfest 2014. Comes golden red with a nice white head. Aroma of grass, grain, and malt. Taste is the sample. Simple, but very drinkable. Nice.
