draft at bar great harry, brooklyn- no wonder i was a bit more buzzed than usual- pilsner at 7 percent- thought it was quite tasty though- very nice hop profile, and better than average body- enjoyable.

thegreenrooster (3930) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 30, 2016
Pour is a cloudy yellow with a large white head. Aroma is a nice bready malt and a decent grassy hop. Flavor is and equally nice dry bready malt with not as much pronounced hop as the aroma led on. Finish is dry but there is an odd burning aftertaste after the swallow. It is very minor but it’s there. This is probably one of the most malt forward lagers it ever had.

Quick3Beers (840) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Pours a clear amber from a bottle. Nose of pear, a little lemon. Flavor is a very nice hoppy lager, everything very well-balanced, starts off sweet, ends rather bitter. An excellent representative of the style. Very good beer.

Jow (3314) - New York, USA - JUL 30, 2015
Tap at The Jeffrey rating #2700. Golden beer normal white head. Nose is grainy and cereal. Tastes of Irish soda bread, the non marshmallow part of lucky charms, grainy, lemon, and florals. Bitter and hoppy. Crisp with a biting finish

Ragnampiza (751) - Rome / Lecce, ITALY - APR 27, 2015
660ml bomber from Belivio. Dark gold, perfectly clear, with a big, fluffy, forever lasting bright white head. Lots of bubbles streaming up, great lacing. Looks lovely! Malty and toasty upfront, quite bready/biscuity, a mild whiff of grass, nuts and earthy hop notes. Quite traditional overall. Taste pretty much follow suite. Herbal and grassy bitterness togheter with a honey like sweetness, mild astringency without being unpleasent. Crisp and refreshing as expected, goes down rather smooth. Same nutty and slightly toasty reminiscence in the aftertaste, mildly soapy too, togheter with a lingering fruity (strawberry, peach) sensation. Average carbonation, medium body, creamy texture. Not bad at all!

halfonit (1313) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 27, 2015
Pours a clear golden color with a white head. Aroma is of hops, grass, hay, soap, grain, and a little yeast. Heavier palate. Flavors are of hay, hops, malts, grain, and other farm flavors (yes I know how that sounds). Leaves an earthy malt and hop finish. Not that bad. At first I wasn’t too big on it but as I drink this it starts to grow on me.

bubblehouse (1246) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - FEB 18, 2015
Not to bad but has a little bit of a funky aftertaste. Still very drinkable especially for price.

danielecamo (839) - ITALY - FEB 9, 2015
In bottiglia. Colore ora, limpida, schiuma fine e persistente. Aroma di cereale, miele millefiori seguito da erbaceo e leggero resinoso. al palato corpo leggero, quasi watery. Sentori di miele e cereale con finale erbaceo che sembra essere un pò spento

22 oz bottle from the Party Source. Pours a hazy golden color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have grainy, bready malts, grass, light citrus, lightly toasted, a light floral character, mild bitterness, nothing bad, just nothing exciting either.
