Pours pale gold and mildly hazy. The head puffs up big and white even with a gentle pour. Good lacing and retention. It faded to a few centimeters of foam after a minute, but that stuck around for quite some time. The aroma is delicately hoppy. There’s oranges, lemons, wildflowers and grass. Mild but fresh pale malt. The taste has a lager-ish character that grows on me as I make my way through the bottle. The hops add a bit of lemon-orange flavor and some gentle bitterness. Mouthfeel is light but pretty full. The bitterness keeps things refreshing and fairly crisp. It’s an easy drinking, sudsy beer, good for a hot summer day.

Poorer from taproom. Pours hazy light amber with a slight white head. Aromas of citrus and light roast malt. Med body. Flavor is light roast caramel and maybe more grassy hop than citrus. It’s making me think of something from N. Germany - not kolsch though. Whatever it is smooth and very nicely bitter in the finish. Maybe more of a UK bitter? Nice drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sammy (8095) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle from last week’s NorCal trip, from the Bottle Barn. This It has a small retained head and fresh slightly hoppy aroma. It has a soft mouthfeel, with a moderate citrus taste. Just a nice bitterness and terrific drinkability. It is akin to a cross style with a kolsch, light wonderful...bomber finished. Not an off note.

Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours hazy light amber with a slight white head. Aromas of citrus and light roast malt. Med body. Flavor is light roast caramel and maybe more grassy hop than citrus. It’s making me think of something from N. Germany - not kolsch though. Whatever it is smooth and very nicely bitter in the finish. Maybe more of a UK bitter? Nice drink.
