deyholla (5972) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - MAR 15, 2014
Sampled at the 2014 Untapped festival in Fort Worth. Pours a hazy pale gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has lots of pine with a good amount of grass and a sweet grain backing. Flavor has notes of grass and pine with some grass and a touch of sweetness.

Pours a light hazy yellow with a white frothy head. Aroma of citrus, a bit of stone fruits, and light hay. Flavor is sweet with a hoppy grapefruit bite. Overall a delicious beer.

suprchunk (1952) - Crestview, Florida, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Hazy light golden straw colored pour. Medium sized white head. Some lacing left behind. A grainy lemon aroma. Taste is a bland malt. Kind of husky tasting. Finish is a bit bitter.

jcartamdg (1664) - Spring Hill, Florida, USA - JAN 23, 2014
Pours bright gold with a thin white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, lager yeast, biscuit and pineapples. Taste is slightly bitter yet, sweet with lager biscuit notes. Smooth and drinkable, citrus and tropical fruit. Not bad

tectactoe (1169) - Michigan, USA - JAN 8, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2014 Can: very muddled rustic amber color with a nice sized, chunky off white head that lasts forever as a mild skin & collar. Aroma is mildly spicy hops, grain, some lightly baked bread, a faint bit of citrus/lemon, yeast, & faint metallic notes. Taste has lots of lightly sweet cereal grains & baked bread, good amount of lemon-lime, orange rind, fresh grapefruit flesh, slight musty & leafy hop notes with a spicy, almost Saaz-like character. Finish of mild lemon & orange, bready grains, & musty hops. Very nice lager... Could crush this.

5000 (6027) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 13, 2013
Can:   Straw, a little dusty/dirty, and fiery, thin white frothy head, spotty lacing.   Very soft and sweet straw/hay, a touch doughy, smidgen of breadiness.   Soft mealy and bready start, hay and straw on the backside.   Heavier than most Pale Lagers, and less grassy.   Fairly clean.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Perhaps a touch chewy.   Sweet hay and straw on the finish.   Not a fan of Pale Lagers, but this was pretty clean and a touch bigger than most.   Thanks Bill!

Admittedly I don’t very often care for any kind of lagers. The taste just simply isn’t my thing. So that being said, keep that in mind. However, I think this is a ridiculously good beer. Way more worthy than the over all score currently. Beautiful hoppy aroma, but definitely not over the top. Crisp, Refreshing, but not bitter. I could see myself drinking the hell out of this during the hot summers. Great Job H&G!

Pours a chill hazed yellow color with a lacy white head. Notes of corn, honey, grass, ammonia.

onceblind (3673) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 26, 2013
Clear pale golden with a thin white cap head. The nose is a little biscuity but very leafy/grassy, like a craft pilsner. Tastes the same, though with a slight citrus kick. Very lovely and complex.
