Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - SEP 21, 2011
Holy fucking grail of lagers big up to Andy pants for the tip off. Holy fuck this is slamming. Beautiful transparant copper body with a light off white lace quickly diminishing. Aromatically a soft pear and floral tone. Hints of agave and fresh laundry sheet like freshness. A total pleassure to sip on. Very soft blanket of carbonation. Light apple crisps, pear tones very light hay and fruit puch notes quicky give way to a juicy soft spicy hop tone. Nice tongue tigling spice with a touch of lavender grass and spice. Astonushing in its freshness n glory. I think i’m in love.

Ernest (6484) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (sugar cookie, toasted grain), moderately hoppy (flowers, herbs, lemon), lightly yeasty (basement), with notes of unripe banana and alcohol. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, syrupy texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. Surprisingly syrupy-sugary-sweet. Nose is pleasant I guess, but a little weird and not very pils-like. Ample finishing bitterness, but the sugary sweetness never goes away. A disappointment from a usually cool brewery.

Brandman (2227) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 28, 2014
500 ml bottle. Bottle says ale. Abv 8%. Cloudy golden body, white head. Aroma has some sweet buttery toast, lychee or melon like mellow fruits, some alcohol. Flavour has very mellow fruits and sweet malts. Some bitterness and some alcohol. The maltiness is quite toasty. Very soft palate. Balanced but this is just not that good.
