   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
TAR (2490) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - JUL 12, 2014
Bottle purchased at brewery, best by Apr. 2014, consumed Nov. 2013: Decent aroma of lemon zest, fresh pastry pils malt, breadcrust and minerals is marred slightly by a presence of DMS. Firm carbonation. Thin bodied. Brightly hoppy and nectary with proceeding peppery spice and well-pronounced herbality. Pleasant mineralic firmness provides a bit of grip which aids the thinnish body. Lemony hops gently lurk in the background, though much of their subtle tang is eclipsed by a note of DMS (lettuce). Moldy dish rag and a yeasty B-vitamin astringency further underscore the lack of cleanness. Sound malt structure exhibits some cookielike depth. Finished woodily hoppy and hay-dust malty with delicate lemony hops and some metallic flavors. Shows some promise, but ultimately the yeasty foulness renders this unenjoyable.

Ernest (6216) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain, husky), lightly hoppy (herbs), with notes of egg, concrete, metal. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter, very husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, slightly metallic. Pretty clunky/dirty and husky. Very hard to enjoy.

3fourths (8017) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Fresh bottle from the brewery. Clear gold body with a short white head. Toast, lemon and spice, good expression of German noble hops. Mostly clean, light silt / chalk yeast character, quenching acids, baguette / sourdough notes develop as it opens. Good mineral content, gravel and mineral water and such. Decent enough lemon / floral hop vibrancy, though husky / grainy with some raw malt smells and minor accents of cigarette ash.

Koelschtrinker (10636) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 21, 2011
Herber, deutlich fruchtig-süßer Antrunk mit aufkommender und von nun an wichtiger Getreidigkeit. Im Mittelteil wird es dann würziger, die Basis hierfür bildet der Süße Hopfen in Verbindung mit der nun trocken erscheinenden aber dennoch aromatischen Getreidigkeit. Der Hopfen verkümmert mit der Zeit leider und verliert deutlich an Intensität, zum Ende ersetzt eine mittelstarke Bitterkeit eben diesen. Süßlicher Abgang, der etwas unpassend wirkt und die wenig vorhandene Bitterkeit verschluckt. 9/9/9/7/9/9

yngwie (13555) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 11, 2010
Bottle. A clear, golden beer with a white head. Wet, pale malts and some fruits on the nose, some wet cardboard, but just notes. Dry, medium body, and a flavor of pale malts and some bitterness. Bitter, grainy finish. A rather boring one, but I guess it quenches the thirst nicely. 100813

Christian (11092) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 15, 2010
Golden with a small white head. Aroma of grainy malt with a touch of cardboard. Sweet grainy malt flavour
