Draft to pint (from memory). Looks decent; golden. Smells okay; bitter and a little skunky. Tastes good; bitter with a crisp finish. Average on the palate. I wish Kraftbrau were still around. This was a nice light warm weather beer.

White gold with floaters. Looks like a belgian white, frothy white head. It kind of stinks. Strong sulfur, egg odor that plagues a lot of Kraftbrau’s beers. Sour pungent odor, too bad. The taste is really awful. Quite a sour beer but does also taste like they took a bunch of lawn clippings and added them to the beer. It has a lemony grassy taste. And it counts as a summer beer. Dry finish. I cannot believe that anyone thinks this is any good. I’m sorry. I support local beer but this one sucks.

Silphium (3160) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JUL 31, 2004
This really hit the spot, even though it is light. Cloudy light yellow body (almost the color of lemonade, quite suggestive), with a thin, clumping off-white head. Grassy wet hay hops aroma with some biscuity malt, slightly tangy. Biscuity, grassy body with a touch of pepper, not tangy or sour, but crisp and light with a clean, smooth finish. Good.

Pale straw yellow with a large fizzy and fading head, some lace. The aroma hints of buttery biscuit, chalk, veggies, floral, and a touch of citrus. The taste is shockingly lemony and almost weiss like, that is almost. The tart and bitterness covers most malt and leaves you with a crisp and clean taste. The mouthfeel is fizzy and watery, but duh, it’s a lawnmower lager for pete’s sake. All thing considered, this beer is better than I expected.

Actually, this is a bit better than I expected. It's an unfiltered light yellow lager. Much better than your typical American Lager beer though. Has a light citrus flavor. Nothing to go crazy over, but definately interesting. Thanks PsychProf for this bottle!

As bad as you’d expect, some bitterness in the palate though.
