Delicious and smooth. Pour is cloudy with floaters. Nice white head on this brew. Taste is a bit lemony.

Grassy golden color with abundant bubbles. Spicy, earthen and grassy aroma and flavor. Tastes like a spunky, peppery pilsner. Not bad. The fact its a bit stronger explains why its automatically better.

Glowing orange body, lively white head, spotty lacing. Citrus, fruity yeast, bready malts, some yeast spice. Medium bodied, creamy carbonation, light bitterness, nice finish.

I find that I concur with all sentiments expressed by Mr. Ashton McCobb. That is all.

55cl bottle from Appellation Wines. Pours a bright orange golden with a nice fluffy head. There’s an orangey malt thing going on for the nose. The taste vanilla, lemon-citrus and the combination of the malt and hops is producing something akin to wood spice. The palate is medium bodied, slightly sweet but with a crisp finish that makes you want another drink. Overall, great beer!

Lukaduke (1998) - Portland, Maine, USA - JUN 11, 2013
Pours a hazy yellow with a finger of foam that settles out quickly. Lots of biscuit bready malts, touch of herbal tea and honey, grassy floral notes. Pretty nice but could use a little more carbonation to pick the flavors up a notch.

Draft. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. The aroma is herbal, light citrus, grass, floral, with some pale malt. The flavor is floral and herbal hops, grass, lightly toasted malt, a touch of caramel with a soapy note to the finish. Decent enough, not my thing though.

On tap at the Common Table. Golden pour with a white head. The aroma and flavor are very pleasant. I get a nice touch of biscuit and light toffee, as well as some lemons and a bit of orange. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Nice work. Slightly high gravity pilsner with a bit more viscosity than usually. Great brine and hop aroma with just a hint of pineapple in the finish. Right in between common and imperial pilsner.

Bottle; Pour is slightly murky golden with a two finger, fine bubbled creamy head in this glass; there is some light spotting present here, with average retention present. The nose is floral, spicy, caramel, and grain. The flavor profile is initial modest bitter, cream, floral, a modest spicing, more bready malts. The mouthfeel is somewhat thick, and it is sweet, like candied sugar. Its a decent drinker , different of course -
