This medium-bodied springtime lager is a jewel-like deep golden color. With its strong malty aroma, creamy head and rich flavor, this beer is truly May in a glass!

Malty sour and sweet. A nice long bitterness.Caramel malted. Apple and a tad harsh. Lots of lace.. Perhaps a week or so beyond when it would be best freshly served. Suitably carbonated, at the brewpub

Very clear orange body with a small white head and decent lace (3+). Wine like aroma, muted alcohol. Caramel, alcohol is mild considering the abv but oddly prominent. Average to thin palate. Did not do much for me.

b3shine (8108) - Indiana, USA - MAY 1, 2014
Draft to taster at Kuhnhenn. Looks good for the style; a transparent golden orange with eggshell head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes mildly sweet and malty with notes of soft caramel. Average on the palate. A decent example of the style.

4oz pour at Churchkey DC. Pours a hazy orange with some spitty, white head. Nose has orange, soap, yeast, grass, some tangerine. Flavor is a little better, fully oily, orange, yeast, soap, mild herb, a little lavender. Oily finish.

jredmond (7460) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 24, 2012
Draft at pOny for Brendanís CFA celebration. Pours a deep amber body with thin White lacing. Aroma is sweet malts, light nuts, light hop. Mouthfeel is medium wih notes of malts, fruit, syrup and light fruit hops. Somewhat plain, but not a huge fan of the style so itís okay with me.

Draught at Kuhnhenn. Pours a clear golden-orange with a small diminishing white head. Nice mild aroma of caramel malt, fruit and hops. Flavour is predominently caramel malt followed by some fruit, hops and alcohol. Alcoholís pretty well hidden. Nice medium to full body. A really good version of the style in my opinion.

JaBier (6976) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Sample at Kuhnhenn on 5/16/14. Hazy amber pour with a thick white head. Aroma of malt, graininess, caramel and some yeasty esters. Malty and caramelly flavor with lager yeast before an orangy finish.

Pailhead (6404) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - JUN 11, 2005
On tap: Caramel and light apple in the aroma. Transparent orangish-amber with a small white head. Flavor is opposite of aroma with more apple and only light caramel. Some other fruits hide in the background, but Iím having a hard time telling what they are. Becomes a lightly sour and tart apple in the finish.

HogTownHarry (6375) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUL 24, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 26, 2006 Draught. At the brewpub with blankboy, GregClow, jerc and tupalev. Poured clear gold, white-ish head. Light herbal, slightly sour/funky hop aroma, some toasty mild, a bit of alcohol burn. Taste follows on, quite herbal-bitter, finishes quick - decent body, a little astringent - pleasing, bock? well, Iím no expert, maybe not on-style, but I liked it.

ClarkVV (5787) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 17, 2004
2004 summer batch on tap. Light golden-yellow with some mild oranges, small foamy white head. Aroma is very light of malt, some hops spiciness and good crisp lager yeast. Flavor is similar, dry and crisp yeast mixes with some mildly earthy and spicy hops. As it warms and finishes, more malt sweetness emerges, but this is a very dry example of the style. No alcohol apparency, moderate complexity, mild carbonation with a medium body.
