500mL bottle shared by csbosox. Perfectly clear pale golden color with a soft pillow-y, fast fading head. The leftover lacing is slightly sticky. Aroma is perfectly clean with light white bread malts and herbal hop touches to a perfect balance. Flavor is again amazingly clean yet vibrant. Has a nice mineral finish to go along with the malts and hops also apparent in the nose. The mouthfeel is so perfect that I could drink a whole growler of this beer, so fun to drink. I thoroughly appreciate this beer and thanks a whole lot to Chris.

hopscotch (8783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 17, 2010
Bottle… Clear yellow lager with a small, fizzy, white head. The aroma is of grainy pale malts and peppery hops with only a rumor of menthol. Medium-bodied with medium carbonation. The well-balanced flavor is mildly acidic - more acidic than bitter or sweet. Watery, tangy finish. Bottle courtesy of juiceisloose!

The Dan Journal #398. Tasted 8/21/10. Pint bottle. Filtered with a dark golden hue. White ring and web of head. Grainy cereal aromas. Medium bodied and crisp. Straight forward and simple yet very tasty! Somewhat sweet in the finish. Slight berry ester. Very nicely done! Classy!

FlacoAlto (3759) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 13, 2010
A solid pour into my large Tripel Karmeliet tulip produces a fat-three-finger thick, pale tanned head that even leaves some lacing on the sides of my glass as it slowly subsides. The beer is a nice gold hue that shows a hint of haze and a brighter gold color when held up to the light. Once the beer fully warms up it is a brilliantly clear hue. Ahhhh, what a nice pale malt character, and wait there it is a spicy, lemon-leaning, herbaceous hop note that kicks in towards the finish. The malt character contributes a significant malted cracker note, whole grain chewiness, clean wheat crumb aromatics and something that reminds me of a freshly made, white corn tortilla fresh off the griddle; this last is not meant to suggest any cheap corn notes that are found in many a cheap lager. The hop character, while not aggressive, contributes a very refined herbal character and spiciness to this beer that is much softer than the grain character.

My first sip yields firmly bitter notes, then a solid grain / malt character, quickly followed by a big, herbaceous hop note and more bitterness that adds a lingering bite to the finish. This is much more hoppy in flavor than the aroma led me to believe. Lemon like hop notes mix with a subtle pale malt grain sweetness to produce a really nice combination. This is a fairly dry beer overall; the biting bitterness of the hops ensures this. This definitely has the texture and body from the malt that is so nice, yet it remains very quaffable; it is somewhere in between a good German Pils and a Czech Pilsener in the body, but it is so quaffable; I could drink liters of this beer (though much of that has to do with the flavor and not just the texture / body. While not as apparent at first, because of the balance from the hops, the really great malt character from the nose also plays a big role in the flavor; dried grassy, huge suggestions of freshly crushed pale malt of the highest quality, suggestions of sweet bread crumb and, again, a fresh white corn tortilla flavor.

The grain character of this beer in the nose is exceedingly exquisite and something I can’t get enough of; I really can’t shake that freshly griddled, white corn tortilla comparison, it seems so apt somehow and so appetizing. Sometimes even a Lager can be quite sublime, this has to be at least a bit past its prime and it is still quite fantastic.

arkurzynski (1461) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 11, 2010
Pale gold. Aroma mostly noble hops with some pale malts. Strong, characteristic pale malt profile, with a nice, Bohemian hop finish. I think this would be even better fresh, but can tell some signs of aging and oxidation.

dionysus (1449) - Arizona, USA - SEP 10, 2010
Bottle pours pale yellow with a spritzy white head. Aroma is sweet and grainy, with notes of honey, citrus, bread and light florals. Flavor shows the same with some lemon custard. Overall body is moderate, sweet, and finishes with a clean, mild bitterness. Good session beer if this were more readily available.

coldbrewky (1418) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - SEP 10, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2010 Ahh, a Bohemian Pilsener, my favorite style. Bottle in trade with Jay. An over hyped, under hopped svetly 12 degree that any Czech or Slovak brewery regularly brews with their eyes closed. and feet up on the mash tun. Some light herbal tones at end of body. Easy to consume. Sweet finish. This is a solid beer without the hype and attempt at being unique.

emacgee (3958) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - SEP 7, 2010
Pours a translucent pale yellow with a one finger white head. Nose is bready and malty with hints of grass and hay and a mild grainy sweetness. Flavor is bready and rainy with some hay and light grass and a mild sweetness, some lager yeast in the background. Palate is soft with a mild bitterness.

Poured from 500 ml picked up from New Glarus Brewery, pours a clear golden color with a thick whtie head, has aroma of sweet malt and a hint of hops mixed within some fruit notes, the taste is very sweet with a great mixture of fruit and hops, overall very enjoyable lager!
