Hmm, an interesting brew, this - light body, tangy, wheaty - a bit of honey and wildflower - squash adds an interesting sweetness to the mix - a touch of phenols add further depth - a light tingly acidity on the tail end - interesting.

Matts_Property (830) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 18, 2011
On tap at Hair of the Dog. Pours a cloudy blond with a small white head. Aroma of candied fruits, pineapple and squash. Flavour of squash, candied pineapple, spices, cinnamon - similar to a pumpkin beer. Dirty flavour, interesting, but not a fan of this style.

mcberko (11864) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 13, 2011
On tap at Hair of the Dog, split with Matts_Property, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma of squash, candied pineapple. Flavour of squash, spices (like pumpkin), with a very dry palate. Fairly simple and uninteresting. Decent.

Wombata (606) - Kobe, JAPAN - OCT 5, 2011
2009 on Draft. Aroma: Ripe, rich malt plus a little pumpkin Flavor: Rich, mild, full-bodied initially, then malt with a slight pumpkin note. Finishes very soft and round.

dchmela (2971) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 6, 2011
Tap at the brewery. Pours a light gold with a thin white head. Musty hops, squash in the aroma. Smooth malt taste, yams and a touch of hop bitterness. Weird brew.

Hophazard (193) - San Francisco, California, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Bready, slightly sweet and tart aroma. Very light clear straw color with small bubbly head. Cereal grain, flaked corn flavor with biscuit like finish. Hay on the finish. Soft and smooth and light motuhfeel. A good pilsner style that is more substantial in malt ocmplexity. Enjoyable yet approachable.

elihapa (1545) - Honolulu, Hawaii, USA - FEB 9, 2011
On tap, brewpub. Pale gold, clean. Aroma is lightly bready. Flavor has sweeter malts, light apple. Great clarity, both flavor, color, finish.

trevor211 (1529) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 22, 2011
Pours a light, transparent yellow. Grains and some vegetal notes on the nose, which really come through in the flavor. Sort of like a tea - just not my cup.

Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 25, 2010
Pours a hazed almost murkey orange with a thin yet lasting head. Aroma is sweet, nutty, grain, gritty, vetetable, squash, herbs and light spice. Flavor is a light caramel, weedy, earth, vege, squash, light metallic hint, orange zest, and light maple syrup? Finish is a bit gritty, but overall kinda interesting beer.
