COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Here is a big beer with balance. Noble hop flavor and aroma offer a perfect counterpoint to the full bodied malt character of this handcrafted lager.

(hand-bottle from BMan1113VR, sampled 3/5/10). Clear gold color. Medium off white head, which is mostly diminishing. Light bready malt aroma, with very light citrus. Moderate sweet bready malt flavor. Avg duration. Smooth finish, with light alcohol and a light lasting sweetness. Slick texture. Soft to moderate carbonation. Fair lacing.

First rate just to be a pain in the ass. Pours a clear deep straw color with a small foamy white head. Nose is lemon, honey, and clover. Taste is gress, ammonia, and sugary malt liquor. Pretty disappointed especially when the girl told me it was "too hoppy" haha. My overall impression is that this is a weird bastard beer that is confused between a tripel and a wit if that....

BMan1113VR (7867) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 19, 2010
Growler thanks to ilovedarkbeer (apparently he likes dark beer, but brings impy pilsners). Pours with a clear golden body and a white head. Aroma of noble hops, bread, citrus and earth. Taste is sugary and slightly hoppy with grass and hay. Fizzy and a bit astringent.

Mora2000 (5789) - McKinney, Texas, USA - FEB 19, 2010
Growler provided by ilovedarkbeer. Pours a very clear yellow with a white head. The aroma is grassy with an almost corn component. The flavor is malty with grassy and hay hop flavors and just a little bit of bitterness. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not much imperial about this beer, certainly not "too hoppy" as the bartender said it was.

Cavie (3808) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - FEB 19, 2010
Incredibly hoppy growler courtesy of ilovedarkbeer. Too bad the beer inside wasn’t. Clear light yellow color. Big bubbly white head. Very sweet aroma. Coconut/kiwi aroma. Nice sweet and fruity. Hops are also on the nose. Dry flavor with easy grains. Finishes earthy and small bitter.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - FEB 22, 2010
Growler thanks to ilovedarkbeer. Pours a clear gold with white fizzy head. Aroma is hard to detect, faint fruit & Pilsner malt. Flavor is kinda sweet, some pilsner malt, faint fruit and some signs of hops. Mouth feel is medium body with medium-high carbonation. Overall, it’s not all that bad.

Growler thanks to ilovedarkbeer. The look is clear, white head, and goldenish in color. The smell is alcohol, hot, fruits, floral, and hops. The taste is alcohol, hops, sort of weird, and malts.
