3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, bought from Bruisin Ales in Asheville. Pours a pale golden with a voluminous white head, like whipped cream that linger and lingers. Aroma is grainy and bready with a touch of woody/earth hops (Hersbrucker or Spalt?). Taste is gry grainy malts, some sweetness in the background and a nice tang of hoppiness. Medium light in the body, clean, long dry finish. Nice beer.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Serving: Draft at Texacali Taco & Tequila Bar. It pours a solid yellow color with a small white head. The nose has a whiff of diacetyl and grain. The flavor is butter, metal, grain, and a hint of grass. Thin bodied with higher carbonation. Reminds me of a cream ale and a bad one at that.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Mecktoberfest 2014. Clear, yellow. Aroma is pungent lager yeast with spicy grasses and herbal strong noble hops. Taste was overly yeasty and hoppy. Harsh on the palate. Overall, I was unimpressed.

On tap @ OMB. Pours a touch hazy golden appearance with a white head. Lot of Pils malt. Dry. Herbal. Cracker. Lightly to moderately spicy hops. Some lemon in the flavor. Grassy and a touch chewy. Mostly dry. Herbal / earthy hops on the finish. I’m not getting much of any residual sugar. Quite dry. Solid.

On draft from the Carolina Beer Company in the Charlotte airport. Pours a nice pale gold with minimal white lacing that retains well. Nose is not assertive, but in a bit stuffed up. Taste is grassy hops, a little bready malts. Decent pilsner.
