Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 20, 2012
Bottled. A golden beer with a beige head. The aroma has notes of fruits, malt, and a bit of hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, fruits, malt, and a bit of hops, leading to a dry, bitter, and alcoholic finish.

KickInChalice (860) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 12, 2012
From notes. First reviewed 11/5/2011. Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a pint glass. My pour is a pure transparent golden yellow with a relaxed white cap. Not much lace, but the head retains pretty well. The aroma is relatively soft. Honey biscuit malt, a bit of clover and spice, some corn and vegetable notes as well. The flavor is more of the same. Some honey biscuity malt, then a lot of smooth processed corn and a lightly floral end. Slightly metallic and a light hay and grassy hop presence at the end. The body is on the light side. Very clean and simple with a light creamy carbonation. I wouldn’t drink this again.

Jayklew (29) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 15, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2012 22oz bomber into tulip Note: Bought this for my wife, who likes lagers, but is starting to enjoy a bit more flavor in her beers. This fits the bill perfectly. -Aroma is very slight. Nothing strong stands out. A bit of citrus. A little bit of yeast. -Appearance is nice. Pour left only a little head on top that went away very quickly. Golden color with a tiny layer of head that remains just around the edges of the glass. -Flavor is slightly bitter with a bit of sweet up front. A bit of alcohol becomes noticeable upon drinking a bit more. -Mouth feel is smooth with noticeable bubbles. Coates the mouth more than a lager would. -Overall an interesting beer that is better than most lagers or pilsner. It was well worth the try and will make a repeat appearance in my fridge.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - JAN 10, 2012
(22 oz from Oak Street Provisions) Golden, just a bit of haze. Three or four fingers of off-white head. Sweet honey-vanilla aroma with floral and fruity hops. Smooth, lightly prickly palate. Flavor is sweet and malty with medium bitterness overlaying. Honey-caramel and vanilla with hints of licorice and hay. Not really hot but ABV is noticeable. Nice bitter hit in finish. Kind of a nice, brash imperfect big lager. I enjoyed drinking it.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 9, 2011
Bottle: Pours a clear deep bronze golden with a stringy-lacing white head. Has a sweet pale malty nose with some noble hops and a touch of light fruity esters. Starts with good fullness and clean sweetness with a touch of light caramel and earthy bitter balance before a drier, slightly warming bittersweet finish. True to style and fairly drinkable.

Scubatrip (596) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - DEC 8, 2011
From the bottle, pours a clear greenish gold with a thin white bubbly head. Smells like a beer, malty and caramel. Taste is thick and of malt syrup, caramel, a hint of bitters, slightly drying toward the end. This is a fine, above average, quaffable beer.
