Pours a golden yellow with mid-sized head. Aroma of grain and some hops. Flavor is largely malt and grain with some hop overlay. Tastes like a Grain Belt or Pabst,, but with a more intense hop profile than usual. Not really a standout.

Glouglouburp (5977) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 9, 2013
In short: A doughy honeyed pils with awkward hopping. Bad idea or bad execution?
How: Bottle 12oz, consumed 2 months after first bottle rating. Bottle sent to me by oakbluff, thanks Scott.
The look: Clear yellow-blond body topped by a medium white head with medium retention.
In long: Nose is drank fruity hops (tropical fruits), some cat urine (I often get this with citra) and some floral honey. Taste has discreet cereals that are crackery and bread dough, floral honey (very flowery), boiled egg white, pineapple, urine. A weird mix here, not an entirely harmonious beer to say the least. Not very flavorful and therefore easy to drink, however it sure didn’t win me over. Pretty lame beer, and I will not apologize for my opinion, it’s useless, because every time I apologize to people I never mean it, and I am so sorry about that.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Hazed witbier yellow with a large frothy white head that fades quickly leaving flares of lace in its wake. Aroma is spicy and semi-dank with noble hops and mild citrus. Taste is noble with caramel, lemon, and a touch of citrus. Gritty and further reminding me that fresh hopping appears to be just a big ruse.

Hazy pale yellow. Slight sweet fruit/floral like aroma.Yeast?Grain. Not really much going on at all. Taste is citrus/lemon,tart,kinda yeasty,bready. Fullish body. A little bit of sweet grain. Almost like a wheat beer,but better that alot of them.

TheHOFF43 (1749) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - DEC 30, 2012
Bottle. Pours a hazy, bright yellow with fluffy white head. Aroma is fresh hops with a bitterness in the flavor that is dominated by the carbonation. Nothing special.

zeke626 (422) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Bottle, pours a greenish-yellow body with white foam head. Aroma of corn, biscuit, citrus peel, and faint floral hops. It tastes like Grain Belt Premium with a hint of citrus. The hops seem very subdued. Sticky on the palate, lightly carbonated. Slightly dry and bitter on the finish.

wlajwl (3798) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Aroma is citrus, fruit and a very deep wet hop/tropical fruit element. The flavor is citrus, heavy tropical fruit/lime/kiwi and a mix of bitter and tangy in the finish. Interesting style for a wet hop treatment.

JK (4400) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Slight haze and white lacing foam. Hop aroma with citrus. Citrus hops in the flavor with malt and pilsner yeast. Good hops, and they are fresh. A refreshing beer.

12 oz bottle. It pours a hazy gold witha pillowy white head that sticks for a long time. The smell is sharp and grassy with some hay.The flavor is mildly fruity with some grass and diacetyl. This is not a great hop to do a 100% fresh hop beer with. And as far as the pilsener part of this, it isn’t well-executed enough for me. It couldn’t have been lagered for that long and that hurts it. It gets better as you drink it but there is just something offf about it overall, perhaps the overuse of brewing minerals.
