Oakes (13154) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 13, 2014
Butt ugly dull tan from the cask. Very sweet, but for alcohol in the finish. The balance in this is just off.

50belair (2754) - Florida, USA - JUN 11, 2014
On tap at Hair of the Dog. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Big malty notes with caramel highlights. Hands down the best Lager I have ever had. Fantastic body and mouthfeel.

Sarlacc83 (1153) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 8, 2014
On tap. A: Cloudy orange with a thin white head. N: Pine, pineapple, biscuit, toffee, caramel, grain, some orange syrup. T: Very sweet with a huge alcohol. M: Sticky, medium heavy. O: I’ve never understood the point of a 9% pale lager. This doesn’t change my mind.

neepsntatties (1288) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 30, 2014
On tap at hotd. Colour...slightly hazy gold with a thin off white head. Nose...quite malty and lightly citrusy with some spent grain and stone fruits. Palate...dry, lightly tart and somewhat cloying, with a a crisp tang and burnt toast flavour. There’s a biscuit like flavour mid palate as well as toasted malt and singed Malt-O-Meal. Some dried fruits enter the picture towards the back and then a dry, oaky flavour hits at the lengthy, spicy finish.

boFNjackson (4185) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Tap @ HotD... Poured hazy, pale orange with a bright white head. Nice lacing. Definitely a sweet lager, but some balance by the earthy, resinous Amarillo hops. Some bread-like malts too. Could be dangerous at 9% with only a minor alcohol presence. Clean, but still a yeast presence similar to many HotD beers, despite being a lager.

douglas88 (6791) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 12, 2014
On tap at HOTD. Pours a clear yellow color with a large white head. A nice mellow Pils malt nose with some light fruit. The flavor is mild heat, a bit of sweet hops, more pils malt, a bit of sweeter malts almost like corn. Very clean and tasty.

marcus (7137) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 4, 2014
On tap at Fredfest 2014. Pours golden with a decent off-white head and a light floral aroma. There is a medium-bodied pale malt flavor with a firmly bitter finish.
