Pours a cloudy golden yellow with almost no head. Nose is a vegetal/DMS bomb, spicy and mildly phenolic. Bready with a mild bite and spicy hop feel. Medium body and bitterness.

TURDFERGUSON (4050) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - AUG 25, 2011
Bottle from LtDan. Thanks! Hazy orange with a thick white head. Nose is nice and surprisingly dry with fresh saaz, honey, some sweeter malts as it warms. Flavor is sweeter, some chalky notes, saaz, grassy and sweet finish.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - AUG 22, 2010
On tap at the Beachwood BBQ - Seal Beach, CA. Soapy pilsner malt aroma, thick with sugars and yeast. Pours a coppery dark golden, clearish with minimal whitish head. Flavors of not-crisp pilsner malt sugars, lots of malt creaminess and some distant hops. Ragingly and punishingly sweet. Just too much. I want bright fresh crispness out of this, with nice bright hoppiness, but it just isn’t there. Soapy in the finish.

well.... sorry distracted by crazy stories.... Poured with a nice head that pretty much lasts the whole bottle (bomber) and lots of lace. Color is a clear golden amber with some bubble trails. Aroma is malt, hop, dry leather, a little pine. Flavor is like aroma with great carbonation. Finish is like flavor and has medium length.

From a bottle poured a light amber color with a small amount of head. Sweet malty flavor with a quick finish.

Bomber from BevMo. Clear dark golden in color. Somewhat grassy nose with a little bit of sweetness. Sweat and grassy flavors. Decent hoppiness. Pretty interesting. Pretty much tastes like I would think an impy pilsner would taste. Everything is pretty much taken and ramped up.

I had this on tap at Pizza Port San Clemente I thought that this was a very nicely done beer. Good maltiness balanced with grassy hops.

22oz bottle from BevMo. Pours a crystal clear deep gold with a nice frothy 2 finger thick white head, some sheeted lacing was left on the glass. Light flesh fruits in the nose followed by some lightly roasted malts with a kind of lemon grass like finish. Damn tasty and very drinkable.

Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - SEP 5, 2010
22oz bottle. Rating #21. Dark gold and clear as can be with a nice moderate lacing white head. Light toast and a bit of caramel, very clean aroma, nice. Light grass and a soft sweetness, a bit more caramel, pretty good. (1392)

Tasted from a bomber bottle purchased at Beverages 4 Less. Pours clear light orange with an average white head that leaves a solid collar of lace after a slow recession. The nose is interesting, starting with a pretty straight-forward hops and pilsner malt, but there is also an underlying sort of plastic aroma that I also get off of some single malt scotches. The flavor has some sweetness, but is dominated by the kind of hay-like pilsner flavor and some hoppiness to round everything out. The body is medium with average carbonation and a medium hops and malt finish.
