Ernest (6728) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is light to medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately to heavily hoppy (lemon oil, lemon cleaner, flowers, resin). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium body, velvety/watery texture, lively carbonation. Rather one-dimensional nose, huge dose of lemon oily hops, which even have some west coast US floor cleaner character. Gets a bit tiring quickly, but fairly clean and enjoyable. More bitter than the 42 IBU might make you think, and blinded I would honestly think this was made in the States. India Pale Lager, anyone? One of the more unusual breweries in Franconia...this and Smokey George seem to be aimed more at American beer geeks than Germans.

Bottiglia. Color oro pallido con un’ intensa persistente schiuma bianca. Al naso estremamente erbaceo. Al palato ha un’appagante lunghissima luppolatura.

Tasted in the past in bottle, it was very metallic. Now on tap: clear golden colour, white head, very persistant. Aromatic hoppy flavour, grassy and resiny. Wonderful bitterness, grass, lemon zest. Very nice

kappldav123 (5484) - GERMANY - JUN 10, 2015
Bottle looks very simple. Beer in the glass deep golden, small head. Starts mild, more and more hoppy-dry, bitter background. Light fruity notes of lemon. Finish dry and bitter. Okay.
