UPDATED: JUL 9, 2015 On tap and sampler served at the Grampfenpils Tapping at RB Yorktown. Showed a hazed, light golden hue, with modest, white head foam, and spotty lacing. The aroma was light yeast, light esters, and a touch of dank grain. Light bodied, the flavor added a touch of honey sweetness, but the earthy, lingering, rind-like hop bitterness was a little too acrid, and disrupted the finish for me. Once again available on tap at the Lombard brewpub. This time a different brewer, and dispensed to a house mug, again with a hazed look, but more orange tint to the golden hue, and a frothier layer of thick, cream colored head foam, and doily-like lacing. The nose was malt & soft grain, with touches of citrus & pit fruit, and some honeycomb sweetness. Light to medium bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste offered similar notes, with a modest, earthy, hop bitterness that tempered & balanced more successfully with the honey sweetness, lingered a bit, and then created a subtle tartness for the finish. Much better. +.5

Draft sampler pour on tap at the brewpub (Lombard, IL). Pours a straw yellow hue, touches of gold glow with just a kiss of haze. Frothy whitish head sparks on top, gentle lacing and sticks around as a film overall. Aromas are gentle grainy malts, touch of lemon, bread, dough, and straw. Gentle sweetness, crisp bready dry malts. Simple. Initial is mellow sweetness, touch of dry earthy hops. Gentle kiss of lemon, grainy malts, bread, cereal grains. Touch of honey, mellow earthy sweetness, straw, grains. Middle is a touch more fruit slanted, some lemon and mellow honey sweetness. Finish is more dry and crisp. Simple yet doable. A summer beginner’s beer. Solid and fresh if underwhelming.
