3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle purchased for about two bucks - pours a cloudy gold - so much yeast, looks more like a kellerbier - however, when you get past that, it actually looks nice, especially with the thick, frothy, lasting head it kicks up - nose has strong minerality and a lot of dull yeastiness and chalk that covers up the other characteristics of floral hops and lightly honey sweet malts - full but soft carbonation - grassy and lightly peppery hops up front - dense, dull yeastiness follows - light honey sweetness, a touch of tropical fruit, and a mineral bite follow, but much like the aroma, the yeast dulls these considerably - moderately bitter finish - tastes like there’s a damn fine hoppy pils hiding under all this yeast.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Poor Phil’s in Oak Park, IL., and dispensed to a footed ale glass, showing a clear golden hue, with a decent, 1/2" hat of white foam, and ribbony lacing. The aroma was lager & pils scent, with sweet maltiness. The flavor included a hefty hop bitterness that was earthy & rindy, and complemented well by a noticeable alcohol presence, even at 5.5%. Better than light bodied, and crisp finishing.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Grassy and sweet nose, very clean and a bit minerally. Very light straw with a fluffy head. Mild hops right away / light rhubarb pie in mid / finishes thick and hoppy, but the flavors clear out quickly. Medium body. Nice, quite bitter. The name doesn’t do it justice.

On tap @ Provisions Market. Pale golden colored beer with a white head. Nice biscuit malt notes up front. Grassy hops, a touch of citrus, and soap. Good biscuit malt flavor, too. Quite crisp and somewhat bitter. Grass, light citrus peel, and a hint of yeast.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nearly clea, yellow gold pour with a 3 finger, fluffy, bright white head. Aroma of sweet cereal, hay, toast, grass, floral and light spicy hops. Flavor is bready up front, then some cereal, grass, honey, floral hops, a little muted citrus and spicy hops. Light body, with a full, creamy entry, medium strength, slightly sharp carbonation and neutral to off dry, somewhat chalky finish, with a nice, acidic hop bite. Interesting and strange on that last note, being a 5.5%ABV Pils, but it works.
