Transfer from BA - Poured from growler into pint glass. Appearance - A pale straw color with a billowing white head that dissipated quickly. Smell - Not a whole lot of aroma, maybe a bit of malt and a little bit of caramel, but not much Taste - the taste matches the smell quite well. Not much about it. At the front a little bit of sweet caramel malt. Beyond that not a whole lot of detectable flavors present. Mouthfeel - For the lightness of the beer I felt it had a relatively nice body in terms of turbidity. The level of carbonation was just right. Overall - The beer could use a bit more robustness. Not the best of the brewpubs brews. It would however possibly be a good brew on a hot day after doing some good work outside. Its lightness would be fitting there.

Pawola22 (3262) - Woodridge, Illinois, USA - OCT 17, 2011
On tap at Zeno’s Pub in State College, PA. Pours a crystal clear, yellow-gold colored body with a finger-width, fairly dense and frothy, white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is grainy and crisp with some lemon and a light grass. Some bready malts and a few florals. Flavor is similar. Lemony florals up front with some grainy malts and bread. A bit of a grassy hopping comes out at the end and helps this dry with a light bitterness. Medium length aftertaste following a light, smooth body and a crisp, moderate carbonation. Overall, a solid lager. Crisp and easy drinking with a solid lemon hopping, light bitterness, and light bready malt. Very easy drinking and enjoyable.

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2011 Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a dark yellow-golden color with a medium sized white head that produced minimal lacing. The aroma was tart, tangy and a bit sugary. The flavor was tar and tangy with notes of lemon, grass and faint windex. The finish was medium length tart lemon. Medium body. Ok.

On tap at Otto’s on our way to RBSG. Pours a clear straw yellow with a thin white head. Light hops, crisp grain. Crisp and grainy, faint lemon. Decent, but standard. This could be a basic lager at a brewpub anywhere. Dry crackers and grain on the finish.
