MarinEvelyn (542) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 19, 2014
Has been cellared for a while so the hoppiness has dissipated some. very strong citrus, sweet, yeasty aroma. Caramel. A little crispy bread. Very fruity taste, hard to pick out what exactly. Sweet, malty. A fairly dry, bitter finish, but it dissipates rather quickly.

Marduk (2637) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 11, 2013
330ml bottle (shared by FatPhil, thanks). Clear amber color. Small size, white head, stays. Fruity, hops, sweet aroma. Sweet, hops, caramel, candy in flavor. Crisp mouthfeel. Refreshing brew, but bit too sweet to enjoy properly.

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 8, 2013
Rating #774 - Nov 18, 2013 - 8 oz e at Beer Revolution courtesy of plunkie. Hazy golden pour, medium white head. Aroma is disinfectant soap, bubblegum, and buttered corn. Mouthfeel is clean, medium carbonation. Quite complex, not anywhere as funky as a sour ale, mild malty sweetness. Sessionable (damn near freakin’ crushable) and delicious.

FatPhil (9271) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 7, 2013
330ml bottle (Ale House, Riga)
Very pleasant fruity hop aroma. It was many months ago that I had the saison, and I forget exactly what that was like, but from those notes, I guess this is pretty similar. Not saying "lager" as such. Slightly thin palate, but not watery. Sweet caramelly retronasals. Dry old nut-paper bitterness. Some resiny hop bitterness. Quite refreshing. Covers the alcohol well. Plenty in common with an American pale ale.

TBone (12541) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 17, 2013
Bottled 330ml @Beer Hunters (blind tasting of Yeast Series)
Hazy orange color, small white head. Fruity, a bit grainy aroma. Light bodied. Fruity, light resiny bitterness. Light malty notes. Easiest from the yeast series.

VertBaconStrips (2069) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 14, 2013
Tired and I really overate thanks to the freakishly ginormous bowl. Incredibly floral and fruity due to a 30 min warm up. Mango and lemon candy nose. Taste = yummo. Mildly bitter, slightly tangy. I’m going to explode. Too full to finish. In the end I like this less - a lot less.

JanLaursen (3063) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 8, 2013
Bottle, 33 cl. Almost clear amber with a lasting off white head. Massive US-hoppy nose. Pine cones, grapefruit, resin, graas, earth. And caramel. Easy to drink, quite bitter, not exactly your average lager. But very good.

Hazy amber beer with a big fluffy pale cream coloured head. Palate is crispy. Mild minerals. Juicy orange hops with touches of grass and skunk. Little grapefruit bitterness. Finishes smooth and semi dry. Decent bitter linger. Nice hoppy beer but did not come over particularly lager like.

Good sharp tang from the hops which sets this aside from a regular lager without hitting IPA heights. Also very smooth, softly carbonated from the yeast. A little sweetness - caramel notes - from the malt.
