On tap at Erin Rose, NOLA, 29.4.16. Served in a plastic cap, of course! Clear-to-hazy gold with a white head. Hoppy aroma of cut grass and flowers. Bitter, malty taste with fruity undertones. Medium body, fizzy, bitter finish. Very good!

Cajun (291) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - JUN 24, 2016
12oz can - Pours golden yellow, big foamy white head. Aroma of hay and mild citrus. Flavor of grass/hay with light roasted malted grain, some bitter hops. Drinkable, meaning watery. As pale lagers/pilsners go, this one is decent.

Leighton (18075) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2016
Can drank at the hotel in NOLA - picked up at Stein’s. Pours clear yellow-gold with a creamy, white head. Pleasant biscuity malts in the nose, some hay, ripening citrus. Light-medium sweet flavour with fairly rich and bready malt character, moderate grassy bitterness, lemon and orange rind. Light bodied with average carbonation. Finishes with more biscuit character, grassy and rindy bitterness, pale bread, straw. A nicely balanced and very drinkable lager.

3fourths (9064) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 18, 2016
Draft at Avenue Pub. Clear gold with a short white head. Clean fermentation allows both malt and hops to be expressed well, the former as toasted grain and warm bread, the latter as lemon zest, cracked pepper, and dandelion. Light bodied, lightly sweet with moderate bitterness and intense hop oiliness and juiciness in the mouth, finishing lip smacking and just salivating enough to demand another pull.

wombat23 (538) - Texas, USA - JAN 7, 2016
Draft at Superior Seafood, New Orleans. Pale straw color with white head. Aroma of malt and grains. Taste of malt, hay, with some light hops bitterness. Okay.
