Bule (765) - California, USA - AUG 9, 2014
On tap at Redwood Cafe. Pours a pale golden color without much head. Heavy on the hops for a lager, but not overpowering. Bitterness lingers after.

Homer321 (1892) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - JUL 16, 2014
Draft at Flavor. Listed as Lunatic Lager Pils. So not really a Dortmunder. Tevs. Moderate bitterness. A strong grassy character from start to drying finish. Ok but a bit too harsh for me.

adnielsen (9123) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2014
On tap in Santa Rosa. Golden appearance with a big white head. Fizzy, grainy, herbal nose with some diacetyl. The flavor is also a bit buttery but not harshly so. Herbal, hay flavor. Wish it had been clean.

This is rather hoppy for a helpless but pretty tasty regardless. It is a hazy orange yellow with a fine bubbled head and a lattice of lacing. It has a mild nose with just a touch of cut hay and citric hops. It seems like it might be a bit sweet but really doesn’t come across as such since it’s quite bitter as well. Some doughy malts come out as the beer warms. This is medium bodied but lightened by crisp carbonation. I would call this an American take on a pilsener. It has a clean yeast character but drinks like an American pale ale.

Theydon_Bois (8746) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2014
Keg at Flavor, Santa Rosa, 28/04/14. Very lightly hazed golden blonde with a good sized off white head that retains well. Nose is pale malt, light citrics, grass, cereal. Taste comprises pale malt, light bread notes, cereals, lemon rind, faint hops. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, crisp close. Decent enough helles.

AdamJackson (2652) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Burnt yellow. 2 finger creamy head. Almost no nose. Very strange cedar or walnut taste. Almost woody with pine needles and ginger root. Older fruits

Sampler at Jupiter in Berkeley, extremely bready nose and taste, lots of flavor for a lager.

brokensail (11008) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 2, 2013
On tap @ The Trappist. Golden orange pour with a rocky white head. Aroma is bread, dough, and a hint of toast. A bit of grassy hops, some nice floral notes, yeast, and maybe a hint of spice. Nice sweetness to the flavor. Plenty of bread, dough, and toast. Good malt character. Lots of grassy and floral hops. Slightly yeasty and mildly spicy. Solid.

Steve_0 (2684) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 26, 2013
On tap at Flavor in Santa Rosa. Pour is clear golden in appearance with a frothy white head and great lacing. Noble hoppy, grassy, grainy, cereal, straw, and biscuity aroma. Taste is grassy, corny, grainy, husky, crisp and clean with a lightly bitter finish. Light body with high carbonation. Not bad.
