On tap at Harry’s Hofbrau. Subtle floral hops with a little earth. Slight sweet malt. Clear, pale gold with moderate white head of various sized bubbles. Taste of dirt floor, slight corn and flowers. Have a slightly stinging bite half way through. Some moderate buttering. Slightly astringent.

Darwenus (549) - Virginia, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Golden peach color with a little foam and a little lace. There’s a midly beer like aroma and kind of a malty, slightly tangy beer like taste. It made me really crave a beer.

Excellent beer. More flavor than standard "lawnmower" beer. Hint of wheat, with a subtle hop finish. Most will enjoy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle taste and smells like water and corn. Doesn’t taste good at all.

Nate (3710) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2013
From bottle. Sweet with beany alcohol-light vegetal nose and a bit of hop-fruity character. Dull muted nose. Dull golden clear with thin white head. Medium body with medium-dull carbonation. Sweet and neutral fruit character. Light to medium chalky bitterness with vegetal-metallic notes. Reminds me of a European strong lager, actually.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4909) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2013
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a slightly cloudy yellow-golden color with a medium sized foamy yellow-white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was semi-sweet and tangy with light pine and a bit of herbal hops. The flavor was tangy, bitter and a bit tart with faint citric and floral hops and a touch of honey. Medium length tangy and bitter citric and herbal hops. Light to medium body. Eh.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks Yoav. Clear golden. Yellow with a small head, aroma is sweet with malt and hops leftovers, flavor is buttery with a touch of grapefruit, light bodied, probably infected
