12oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Clear light golden color with a huge rocky white head. Lemony nose, yeast, floral hops and some bread notes. Soft malty flavor, light fruitiness, yeasty flavors and low-med bitterness. Over carbonated, light body. somewhat crisp and dry, probably more when fresh.

DSG (5750) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 15, 2012
Bottle. Beer of the month club. Hazy yellow color with a big frothy white head. Aroma has some floral and grassy hops, some overripe fruits, yeasty notes, some pale malt and light graininess. Flavor starts sweetish with some graininess and fruitiness and continues drier with light yeasty notes and a moderately bitter finish with spicy, grassy hops notes. Light to medium-bodied with too much carbonation. OK.

Poured a pale yellow color with a thin white head. Aroma has floral hops with some grains. Taste is a tad skunky but with floral notes. Some light sweetness, not too creamy. Overall its only ok.

hypn0toad (267) - Maryland, USA - SEP 7, 2012
On the last evening of a week long OBX trip, and we decided to get a tour of some local beers instead of the crap we had been drinking. (thanks Nicky) This is tasty. Nice and mild. A relaxing beer. Better than genny cream ale.

maxwelldeux (3551) - Everett, Washington, USA - SEP 6, 2012
Bottle. Pours a very light golden ale with a moderate head. Not a lot of smell to it. Almost has a hint of lagerness to it, but it’s a very smooth ale. Really interesting...

FROTHINGSLOSH (4909) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 6, 2012
From the 8/2012 3R6P tasting +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a very pale yellow color with a medium sized foamy white head that faded quickly and left minimal lacing. The aroma was dry and tart with notes of citrus and perfume. The flavor was dry and tart with vague citrus, band aid and a touch of bread. Medium length dry, tart and citric finish. Light body. Not good.

Atom (1338) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 5, 2012
12oz bottle pours a clear golden/straw with a large white head. Aroma of wheat, grain, and fruit. Taste overall bland, grain, slight hop bitterness. Drinkable but nothing special.

Drake (8442) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 31, 2012
12 ounce bottle from Harris Teeter Crozet. Pours a hazy yellow color with a large foamy off-white head. Good head retention. Aroma of toasted malts, grassy hops, corn and apples. Almost skunky, oddly. The taste is tart malts, corn, grain grassy hops. Medium bodied and refreshing.
