Drank this one straight from the bottle. Caramel, toasty, nutty taste. Has a little bite on the aftertaste. Fairly full mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nicely done!

Pours a clear golden yellow color. Aromas of grass, cheerios, and a touch of flowers. Flavor is kinda sweet to start, citrusy finish with some hop notes.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured into a perfect pint from a bottle.
3.0 A: Clear medium orange color. Two fingers of frothy beige head. Retention is a touch below average and just a few wisps of lacing are left.
3.5 S: Caramel and toastiness, mineral, nuts, apple, rust. Light earthy hops.
3.5 T: Caramel apple, toastiness, nuts. The lager yeast is a bit aggressive lending a dirty earthy component. Also has a dry champagne quality to it.
3.5 M: Heavier medium body. Good carbonation level that is fizzy on the tongue. Lightly creamy.
3.25 D: I love GL and I know everyone loves this beer, but for me it’s just slightly above average.

I poured it from the bottle into a mug. It pours a light amber color with a fluffy white head and lacing. The aroma is barnyard, funk, hay, and grass. The taste is grass, hay, earth, vegetable, and some sweet corn. The palate is light on carbonation. It’s a pretty good interpretation of the style.

Bottle. Copper with 1 finger white head. Dark fruit, nuts, malt, and an unfortunate creamed corn taste. I’m guessing DMS infection? Too bad, would be pretty good otherwise. Will have to try this one again.

Almost clear amber with a short, off-white head.

Taste is sweet orange/toffee malts....

Very malty, but a bit too sweet, however.

Clear copper-amber body, thin off-white head, spotty lacing. Bready grains, some toffee, some florals, and the slightest bit of citric hops. Medium bodied, softer carbonation, moderate sweetness, a bit sluggish in the finish.
