12oz. Nails it. Awesome to see newish breweries like Off Color really making quality lagers like this. There is some nice zest, but it is traditional. noble hop style. Clean medium body, lots of excellent lager notes in the hay touched golden malt. Quality stuff, definitely one to scoop up if you a good Pils.

Hazy light yellow. Good carbonation. Very bright lemon bitterness and Mellon. Good sharp mouthfeel and fizzy taste. Melon, lemon and orange juice skin / zest. Piney.

Another good local lager. Things are looking up in Chicago. This is pretty clear, golden in color w/ a small foamy head. Itís nose is hoppy but subtle and not overbearing. Itís got a honey-like floral note and a bit of crackery malt. There is just a touch of bitterness in the finish. There is a bit of an ale-like yeastiness in the nose which isnít too style but seems to work here in context.

Very pale yellow. Nice straw malt. Fairly dry, crisp bitterness. Very solid pils. Would definitely put into the rotation.

Yellow pour from bottle on Lakehouse dock. White head. Lemon, grass, Pilsner and sweet. Not bad for the style

Poured from the bottle into my trusty Samuel Adams glass. The pour produced a hazy, pale yellow body, topped with a medium head of white foam (which lingered during the tasting.) Light aroma with notes of rice (I think) and malt. As light colored as this beer is, it does have a full texture, with moderate carbonation, and a bittersweet taste. The dominant note is grain, with a lingering tinny hop aftertaste. I purchased this from the gift shop at the Field Museum, in Chicago, and wasnít expecting much. Overall, it isnít bad, I would almost say this is a good lawnmower beer if it were just a little lighter in the body.

crossovert (10050) - Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2015
Draf.t Golden pour, kind of a mix between a lager and a koelsch, nice and crispy, bread notes, some yeast, and a nice bit of hops in the aroma.

Bottle. Pours a pale straw yellow, nice white head with decent retention and lacing. Nose is malty, lemon, bready, cereal. Mouth is light bodied, and pretty much tastes like the deScription of the nose. I have to be honest... having been raised on American ímacroí pilsner, this (fair or not) is pretty much is a style I donít go out of my way to find, but the occasional craft-brewed version gives me a depth of perspective. Off Color is a solid brewery and based on my trust in all things craft, this is probably what Iíd expect to find in the Czech Republic, but itís still a style Iím not really excited about or that eager talk about of, so itís hard to really say much. Decent for the style though.

HonkeyBra (3849) - Lemont, Illinois, USA - JAN 23, 2015
12 oz. bottle. Pours a pale golden with a medium white head on top. Aroma of fresh bread, crisp pils malt, earthy and leafy hops. Flavor is crisp, with mild bready pils malt and sharp hops. Lively carbonation, crisp body, finishes medium and dry with nice hop presence. Really nice.

Draught Golds!
Pours a pale yellow with a light haziness some good head and decent lace.

The aroma is clean and malty with a little honey, pretty sweet smelling with some dough and some leafy hops.

The flavor is nicely bitter and lightly sweet with some honey and herbal hop character. Finishes clean.

A little less sweet and a little more bitter and this could have been real neat, I guess itís neat enough... but itís not "real" neat.
