Atheist_Peace (968) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - MAY 9, 2013
650ml bottle. Pours a lightly hazed yellow with below average white head that laces out quickly and leaves a thin ring. A lot of grain with the faintest wisp of something hoppy. I want to say there’s something chocolaty about the nose...Remarkably nondescript stuff on the palate. mostly grain with that same chocolaty edge and a faint hint of lemon. Boring.

A thin light head, with a great golden color and a malty aroma. Beer has very subtle hops overtones, with a mild body. Overall, very light taste. It’s a great option for powering down beers, and having some class while doing it.

VT (1413) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - APR 29, 2013
650 ml bottle from and shared with Albatross. Pours a golden, sediment-filled straw with a thin, yet long-lasting white head. Aroma is pils malt. Flavor is wheat flour, butter, cereals, some fruits, yeast, white bread...and, dare I say, potatoes ? (or is it just the name influencing me?) Finish is earthy and herbal hops. Medium body, soft mouthfeel, weak to average carbonation. Very solid lager.

pdx76 (629) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 26, 2013
On draught at rogue airport - slightly cloudy gold. Small foamy head. Nose of faint citrus - really have to sniff hard to even find a smell. Taste of hint of lemon, some pine. Not much flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jcr (2220) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - APR 21, 2013
Draft. Yellow body, clear. Frothy white head, diminishing. Aroma of toasted grain and herbal hops. Note of pepper. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Light taste of grain, biscuit and herbal hops. Light bitterness lingers into the finish. Fairly clean and crisp. Inoffensive, but not much flavor.

Patrickctenchi (3847) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Nearly clear gold with a puffy white head. Aroma is bready, malty. Taste is sweet malt, dough. Earthy, grassy hop bitter. A nice, pleasant lager.

BrewBoxer (2063) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 23, 2013
Tap at Ulysses in NYC . Gold bronze color. Light hue with a smooth easy drinking taste , but boring like a micro. Why this served in a 12 oz glass? I have no udea ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

GT2 (8536) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Tap at Penn social in DC. Clear straw pour. No head. Bubbles. Nose is lemon, cinnamon, fruit cake. Taste is essentially Bud Light - seltzer, metal, hydrogen peroxide. Palate is extremely weak to non existent. Not sure why this even exists. Bad.

JDBaker11058 (1322) - Maryland, USA - MAR 22, 2013
Appearance: clear medium gold, one finer of bright white head, minimal lacing. Aroma: toasted white bread, fresh-cut grass, a bit of honeysuckle and lemon. Taste: ritz crackers, a bit of white pepper, lemongrass, and a bit of floral honey. Finish: crisp, with lingering white bread/cracker flavors, and a surprising hint of green apple. Notes: Really enjoyed this one. Clearly a top-shelf lager.

ellolovey (464) - Georgia, USA - MAR 19, 2013
22 oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden honey color with a thin white ring. Aroma of dish soap, pilsner yeast, and grass/ earth. Taste skunky. Sour/tart watered down malts. Good carbonation and refreshing. But nothing going on here. Not an enjoyable taste at all. Disappointed.
