JDBaker11058 (1572) - Maryland, USA - JAN 25, 2013
Appearance: slightly hazy light gold, with one finger of bright white head and minimal lacing. Aroma: a bit of grass, with some honey smacks cereal, biscuit, and creamed corn. Taste: very fresh-tasting, with semi-dried grass providing a nice balance to sweetish cereal grains. Finish: clean, crisp, and extremely refreshing, but not long lasting. Notes: This was an outstanding classic Dortmunder/Helles lager. Perfectly balanced, very fresh and lively in the palate, and refreshing. Couldn’t ask for more.

Bottle shared with McTapps. Just another simple and easy going lager. Nothing special and very average.

McTapps (5853) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - JAN 17, 2013

KyotoLefty (7879) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 28, 2012
Bottled. Cloudy gold with a low head. Malty, fruity aroma, over ripenfruit and some veggies, some esters. Sweet malty flavor, veggies, peaches, grass. Probably not in prime shape, very vegetal, cabbage and such. Lots of DMS going on too. Could be nice, though out of shape.

Skinnyviking (7905) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle. High and lasting white fluffy head leaving nice long curtains. Clear yellow golden body. Sweet weak barley malt aroma and flavor. Little hops bitterness, low carbonation, short sweet finish. OK but just one of many, soon to be forgotten.

77ships (5561) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 3, 2012
Big solid looking 500 ml. swing-top bottle split with Dylan / Kraddel - thx. to myself - high-five myself. Crystal-clear pale golden with a smaller white head. Smells like sweet bananas, corn, straw, white bread and a nice dash of cleaning agent. Tastes like chemical lemons, banana, white bread, corn puree, flowers, white sugar, straw, cleaning agent and the fine taste of windex. Super easy to drink - quite sessionable - those are some pretty odd flavours I am getting but I still rather enjoyed this one - it is very drinkable and far from a bad trip.
