mabel (8321) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 8, 2016
[8067-20160130] 12floz bottle. Sweet grainy light corn aroma has a strange interesting spice to it. Slightly hazy, pale yellow body with a quick foamy white head. Straw spiced grains flavour. Medium body. Good, simple. (7/3/7/3/13) 3.3

On tap at DeSoto. Super solid Pilsner. Not lacking in flavor. Crisp and dry at the end. Screams noble hops- spice and grassy notes. Malt is biscuity. Bit of an odd finish- overly floral. True to style and very drinkable.

3fourths (9015) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 16, 2016
Aroma impression is lightly hoppy with the signature lemon and "spicy" / pepperiness of Saaz, with a quiet note of cheese rind / must (guessing old hops). There’s a small dose of DMS in the aroma as well, giving it an iceberg lettuce unpleasantness. It’s medium-light bodied, lightly sweet with mild bitterness, showing off-notes of chemicals and soap in the finish. It’s not strongly offensive, the off-notes are pretty mild overall, but there’s also little clear impression of the hops and the malt is completely forgettable.

JStax (4637) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAR 12, 2016
Draft pour into a pint glass. The beer is a clear gold with a white head of foam. The aroma has grassy and herbal notes and bready notes. Almost lemony. Refreshing and super bready. Medium body and medium carbonation.

rgf001 (301) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAR 10, 2016
Aroma is grassy with no noble hops. Flavor of astringent hops that mask the malt. Malt flavor is grainy, simple and clearly not decocted. Rather underwhelming.

jercraigs (9447) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 17, 2016
2015-01-30. Yellow body, small white head. Aroma is oddly floral and grassy. Flavour is lightly bitter and quite floral, in a way I don’t care for unfortunately. Average bodied palate, moderate carbonation. 5/3/5/3/12 Bottle shared by Sammy.
