"333" from The Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours rather dishwater gold with a white head. Aroma of mild - both bread and probably saaz. Med body. Flavor is something of a fruity pils. Not strongly fruity - but it’s there. Lightly bready and rather herbal hop. It’s bitter enough to push into a decent pils range, but this is an ale. Perhaps this is what happens with pils ingredients and an ale yeast. Might account for the fruit hint. Main attraction is the bitter finish - also it could pass for a clean beer. Sadly.

Travlr (9999) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Tasted yesterday in honor of Canada Day, cheers! Cloudy golden color, massive white ice cream cone head, solid lacing. Aroma of duty, earthy lemons and straw. Taste is barnyard, rising bread dough, sour citrus. Very nice.

Lubiere (9438) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 13, 2007
A light hazy golden ale with a thick creamy white head. A biscuity malt aroma with peppery hops notes. In mouth, a crisp sweetish malt, light lactic notes, herbal hops, and light berry notes. Medium bodied. On tap at Vices versa, Jan. 2007.

JoeMcPhee (8214) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 29, 2008
Tap at Spuyten Duyvil. Pale blonde beer, slightly hazy with a thick creamy head. Aroma is very wheaty and spicy. Softly fruity with a bit of light chewy character. Lightly melony and a bit minty as well. Juicy and peachy with lots of honeyish character. Lemon and a bit of soft bubble gum and bread dough. Nice, juicy fruity brew.

cloudy yellow/peach and unfiltere. Good yeast and hop and fresh. Grapefruit and some yeast in aroma. Medium plus creamy mouthfeel.Nice hopping. This is a big time upcoming brewery based on 6 months’ real time brewpub displayed here.

750mL thanks to noodleuser. The pour is a clear, light yellow/ blonde with an explosive white head. Massive retention, huge lace. Nose is sugary, sweet, lemon drop, candies, sweet dough, cidery, yellow pear. Oxidized apple slice. Weird. Taste is astringent, weird. Very strange stuff. Not a big fan. Stressed yeast profile. Medicinal lemon abound. Baby powder and mealy apple. Ick.

Bottle (brand new bottle to our market, date code seems to indicated 01/12). Pours with a lightly hazed, very pale, straw yellow hued body with a large and lasting white head. Aromas are quite estery with some acetaldehyde and straw. Lots of apple, baked bread, pear, grassy hop. Bready and toasty malt. Cidery. Flavors are malty and bready, medium sulfur and cleaner than the nose. Medium assertive bitterness with a lightly grassy hop character. Toasted and bready malt flavors compete. Carbonation is high ( what seems like above 2.8 volumes of CO2). Medium estery, lightly cidery, some alcohol. I was looking forward to this, but I am pretty disappointed. Medium-thin body. Dry.
