TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 11, 2007
Pours burnished golden with a fully receding white head. Aroma of fresh hops, noble, herbal, and grassy. Taste is herbal, slightly resinous, with a rich maltiness and lots of hoppy character. Mouthfeel is medium full bodied, resinous with lively carbonation. Marked as 5.5% ABV and 67 IBU when sampled.

SpringsLicker (3157) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 1, 2007
On tap at Rich O’s Publick House when I stopped on the way to Dark Lord Day. Pours fairly clear gold with a persistent off-white head. The aroma has plenty of malt and citrus hops. A dry bittereness leads off for the flavor profile and is quickly followed by some maltiness. Well balanced and not too over the top. A good easy-drinking beer, especially for someone just becoming initiated into the realm of craft beer.

On tap at Rich O’s Publick House during RBSG Road Trip 2007. Clear gold with no head. Citrus and pine over light caramel in the nose. Herbal bitter flavors, borders on IPA, IMO.

vyvvy (4025) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 15, 2007
Sampled at St. Louis microfest. A fine attempt at the style. Pours amber with a dense off-white head. The aroma has huge grassiness with lots of pale / pils malt. Medium / body with semi-soft carbonation. The flavor starts very grassy with some spiced hops - the grassiness is really just off the charts. The finish is very grainy and grassy. Easily one of the best I’ve had of the the style.

EithCubes (5024) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 4, 2007
Draught at the brewpub. Cloudy copper but looks darker. Sweet, vaguely English hops aroma with definite Cascades. Body is thin and watery, but still has a nice crisp hop bite and a good dose of dry, biscuity malt. Touch of oiliness. Very dry aftertaste. Overall, a bit thin for me, bu a good (pale-ish) session.

Draft at Keg Liqour Fest of Ale. Poured clear copper with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate malty and sour citrus aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Medium bitter flavor with a medium smooth bitter finish of moderate duration.
