Bottle at PPSG. Accourding to my trusty over the top RB rating and tasting sheet: For aroma I circled bread and very light in terms of hop aroma, pine, orange/citrus flowers

JoeMcPhee (8214) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 7, 2009
Very pale golden beer. Very fresh crackery malt aroma. Light wheaty/spicy notes. Flavour also shows a very clean, crisp malt base with a touch of pleasant fruity estery character. Clean, well-balanced and easy to drink... just what you want in a bitter.

beerbill (3272) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUN 1, 2009
Large ceramic swing-top bottle I believe was brought by JoeMcPhee. Pours a slightly hazed light gold with a linen white head. Mild aroma of citrus and grain. Flavor is a bit more distinct than the aroma with moderate grain and light bitterness at the finish. I believe this is my first B.C. rating!

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - JUN 1, 2009
Fizzy light golden with a white head. Biscuity crackery aroma- fizzy feel, a bit thin feeling. Dry flavor with a lightly crackery background and mild bread crust notes. Simple, but nice and dry throughout.

Light hazy yellow pour with a small head. Aroma is some citrus hops and light earthy spice and grain. Taste is pine and citrus but overall a bit light.

j12601 (6585) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAY 31, 2009
Bottle at PilsnerPeter’s Spring Gathering. Pours a clear golden yellow with a medium white head. Smells of lager style grain and a bit of hops. More grain on a medium body. Bitter, tannic, lightly quinine like, but with no grapefruit character.

1L swing top. Pours a pale golden body with a thin head. Bitter grain and light floral hops and some light cheese. Okay.

Bottle. Aroma of some light red fruits, some light floral notes, toasted malt. Flavor pretty bland, not much going on but some toasted pale-ish malts. Eh.
