Think this was the best of the 4.....small head but nice and fluffy lacing all over the glass. Smell straw grain dry hops. Taste dry crisp pils with a bitter hop finish actually catch some of the alcohol in there at first. Would certainly rate this with the best German pilsners I have had. Nice mouth feel easy drinking. Some citrus in those hops as well. Damn good glass of beer.

355ml bottle into a grian belt glass. Nice gold hute, frothy head that leaves thick and sudsy lacing. Smell i light barley, hint of fruit. Flavor is a bit sweet for a bils, heavy bread flavor. Huge cutting bitterness. Wish this was 4.8% no idea what the 6.5% was for.

Crushed with Jakebra
Pours perfectly golden with a big fluffy white head that leaves plenty of lacing on the glass.

The aroma is hop forward, herbaceous & citrusy... with a light doughy malt sweetness.

The flavor has that nice herbal bitterness that just stings the palate just right, it’s got a nice citrus rind character and some grapefruit. It’s brightly hoppy, clean, and features just a touch of dusty maltiness. The beer is on the drier side, enjoyably so at that.

Overall I really enjoyed this series.

Skyview (5696) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - APR 27, 2014
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle from Heritage Liquors, in Maplewood, MN. Pours a clear golden light amber colored brew with an average sized off-white head that displaces to a thin ring and spotty lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, a hint of grassy and floral hops, and a touch of citrus. Taste is medium bodied, flavors of caramel and golden grain malt, some light citrus and floral hops. Finish is semi-dry with a floral hop aftertaste.

Clear yellow with a foamy head. Pale malts, tangerine, resiny hops, earthiness and barley make up the flavor. This one is pretty good, I almost wish this wasn’t a one time deal!

Tap at Northbound. Mostly clear golden yellow pour with a spotty white head. Nice tangerine nose and a sweeter taste. Crisp. Really nice brew.

madvike (3201) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - APR 10, 2014
Bottle - Clear golden with a foamy white head. Nose is rustic, starchy grains, gentle herbal hops, and a touch of citrus. Taste is the same--a grainy, rustic malt base, a bit of orange, and a lightly spicy herbal hoppiness. Slick and medium, with a smooth carbonation. Good stuff, though I would have liked more orange and a little cleaner malt base.
