Ungstrup (29022) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2005
[At GABF 2004] A clear yellow beer with a small disappearing white head. The aroma is hoppy and malty with a slight hint of alcohol. The flavor is primarily malty in the beginning, to end up with a dry hoppy end.

hopdog (8773) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 8, 2008
On tap at the North Wales location. Poured a deeper and clear golden color with a very small sized head. Aroms of citrus, bread, and malty. Tastes of cookie dough, breadiness, and all around ’malty’. Some alcohol in the finish.

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2008
Tap at Lancaster location. Pale golden beer. Aroma is lightly honeyish and sweet. Clean bready maltiness, a kiss of sulphur and a light minerally bitterness. Fresh and sweet and a pretty solid bock.

DocLock (7701) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 3, 2004
Draft at North Wales. Pours deep gold with copper menisci. Aroma of malt, hops, fruit, some wheat and honey. Tastes malty, fruity, with a firm honey burst upon esophagination. Well balanced, nice complexity, and a great beer. Finished 3rd in my growler selections.

Glouglouburp (5938) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 29, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2009 In short: An highly drinkable fruity lager with a good citrusy hopping. Good beer.
How: Tat at brewpub, North Wales location
The look: Clear golden body topped by a medium white head
In long: The attack is dried fruits, apple juice and citrus fruit juice. Then the hops kick-in with an unusual (for the style) american character. Sharp bitterness. Citrusy from start to finish. This is an absurdly drinkable, any more absurdly drinkable and we’d drink it from clown flower squirt held upside-down by the trunk of a socialist pink elephant.

blipp (5830) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - JUN 22, 2013
Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Grainy malty base, light sweet malty notes, and hints of earthy hops. Not bad.

egajdzis (5253) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2004
Poured a gold color with a very little white head. Toasty, doughy, sweet and malty aroma. Taste was bready, caramel malts, and a slight alcohol bite.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 9, 2007
On tap at North Wales. Pours a bit on the light side of the style- deep gold, mostly clear- some hazy and a moslty white fluffy head. Aroma is a bit light- some sweet and nutty malts, lightly toasted wheat bread, and hints of floral and herbal hops. Flavor is again a bit light for the style, but had some nice doughy character, light toast malts, some bread, and light on the hops. Cool solid smooth mouthfeel and goes down easy. Nice spring/summer lager.

Thorpe429 (5012) - , Illinois, USA - JUN 4, 2011
On tap at the Lancaster location on Memorial Day 2011. Pours a clear golden color with a good white head with moderate retention and a ring or so of lacing on the way down. Thin white collar throughout. The nose brings light floral hops. Also, some bread and accompanying mild sweetness. The flavor brings very light floral and earthy hops along with a nice bready character and also light sweetness. Really fantastic balance between these three components. Light to medium body and a dry, crisp finish with nice bitterness. One of the best, if not the best, version of the style I’ve come across. Well done, Iron Hill Lancaster.
