JaBier (4983) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - AUG 13, 2009
Sampled at the imports tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 8/13/09. Pours a clear amber with a medium beige head. Floral and somewhat malty aroma with lager yeast and lightly crisp hops. Malty flavor with some yeast and a crisp and light hop finish. Not robust like you would expect an o-fest to be. Matter of fact, based on the name I thought it was intended to be a light May beer and that they were we-todd-ed for coming out with it now, but I read up on it and realized the brewmaster named it after himself. Clever, but not when your name is similar to another month in German. Either way, average beer.

Sampled at tasting at Blacklick Wine and Spirits. This one was a little odd to be honest. The title doesnt neccessarily fit the flavor. Pretty swee aroma of bread and sugars up frong. Strange lingering aftertaste that I could not quite place. Kept it from being good.
