Crystal clear golden. Lightly worty (sweet) aroma with good size hop aromatics. Citrus and noble hops going on. Rindy bitterness, cuts through a relativly decent medium light body. Definitely not too syrupy, as many stronger lagers can be. Clean and nice.

oldrtybastrd (3222) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2010
Pours a nice reddish orange color. Aromas of nice citrus/grapefruit hops and sweet malts. Flavor starts nice crisp bitter hop and then mellows to a nice malt.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - MAR 12, 2010
Bomber courtesy of jake65. Pours a slightly hazy amber/gold with a sustained white head. Smells of wildflowers, grassy, hay, some dry hints, touches of citrus. Tastes of light citrus, grassy, semi-sweet, floral. Great beer, that utilizes some of my favorite hop varieties well.

jake65 (2708) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAR 24, 2009
Bottle: Pale golden color with a large, creamy off-white head. Thick sheets of lacing. Rich aroma of citrus and overall fruity sweetness. Nice up front taste of the hops. Citrus and florals. Strong malty presence too. Dry, yet soothingly wet. Good amount of lingering bitters. A little bit of caramel, but mostly a deeper malt profile and a ton of hops. Very nice.

Draught @ WABF 2008. Pours a hazy pale yellow color with a small white head. Has a malty hoppy aroma. Sweetish malty hoppy flavor. sweetish warmingmalty hoppy finish with a bitter aftertaste.

Aubrey (3444) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - AUG 29, 2008
Clear and light golden with many rising bubbles, like champagne. Floaties and sediment lingered toward the bottom of the bottle. Frothy, tightly packed white head. Smooth and soft texture, with weight. Grainy malts. Burly alcohol presence. Had some malt liquor characteristics to it; also elements of dark corn and sourdough bread.

skoisirius (1718) - Earth, Washington, USA - AUG 19, 2008
Taste test on tap thanks to a distributor friend in Seattle. While this definitely marks a momumental moment for Lang Creek and I, they still manage to miss the mark. Very golden and strawish in flavor/nature, this seems to be like an amplified Czechvar blended with a weak DIPA. Happy to see Lang going above the 7% ABV mark, but they still haven

stchloe (793) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 1, 2008
SBF ’08 So it is a Pilsener style ale with regards to the yeast and fermentation. It then gets a proper ale treatment with the addition of hops and malts, making this hybrid unique.

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JUN 14, 2008
On tap at WABL Brew Fest 2008. Pours cloudy light gold with a white head. Medium body & carbonation. Aroma and taste of hay, citrus toffee. Semi-dry finish.

22oz. Pours golden with a light head. Smells of fruit and hops. Taste is is fruity and citrus. The aftertaste is like chewing on crushed tylenol (pithy?). The finish really killed any attraction to this beer.
