Golden with a white head. Aroma is rye and biscuit malt with some orange citrus notes. Flavor is similar. I get some light spice, as well as some grass and light citrus from the hops. The biscuit malt keeps the beer from being bitter, but is balanced enough so that it doesn’t make things too sweet. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Reid (1873) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAY 19, 2013
22 oz from "Lifesource" in Salem Oregon. $3.99 Pours a typical lager light golden with a large fluffy off white head. Nice aromas..of biscuit,paper and grassy hop in the background. Smooth taste..hoppy in a light grass way and smooth honeyish tones from the malts. Nice lively but at the same time smooth mouthfeel. Overall nice beer too hoppy for style but good

22 oz. bottle served in shaker- poured a transparent thin yellow with ever the slightest tint of orange. Solid and foamy two finger head formed and tried to lace upon the vessel, low carbonation. Aroma of earth, rye, apple, and grapefruit. Hits the mouth with a light body, malt is extremely light even considering the style, gentle hop wave in the middle, finish is has some resin and acidity. Welcome relief from the beta test beers that you have to pay to experience here in Austin.

Clear yellow pour with decent white head. Sweet apple crisp and noble hoppy flavor notes. Slight honeysuckle. Really smooth but with good hoppy flavor. Really tasty and approachable.

Bottle: Bright golden pour, really quite vibrant. Creamy white head. Nose is soft with florals, rye, and herbal notes. Silky mouthful with rye, floral, more herbal notes, and light malty sweetness. Finishes soft and crisp at the same time. Very enjoyable.

Indra (2604) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - MAY 16, 2013
22oz. bottle, best by dated 6/13/13. Lightly sweet, floral aroma, softly malty and hoppy, with notes of citrus, pear and honeyed biscuit. Sparklingly clear medium golden color with a rocky, foamy, lasting, white head and thick sheets of lacing, fed by plenty of visible effervescence. Flavor profile is malty and lightly sweet up front, some pale grains and honey, becoming spicier, hoppier and fruity, and finishing with a touch of earthiness and a light-moderate degree of hop bitterness. Active and well-carbonated on the palate, rather refreshing, especially for the style, with a medium-full body. Very slight warming sensation from this one, which is otherwise very drinkable and easy-going in nature.

On draught at New Belgium Hub at DIA. Pours a deep bronze color with a medium fluffy bone white head that diminishes slowly. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt and hops. Medium-bodied with flavors of biscuit malt, hops and citrus. The finish is malty up front with an earthy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.
