Bottle (22oz): somewhat cloudy darkish golden. Not bad for a lager, but I am not normally fond of lagers. Medium body.

Color is cloudy straw gold. Pours a thin white head with some lacing. Aroma is bread hops and some faint banana / spice. Taste is biscuity and citrus, body is thin. Has a hint of spice on the finish. Pleasant and light but a bit more bitter than I tend to like.

Draught. Pours a clear and very dark gold color with a small white head on it. Nose is very light, with just some slight corn elements to it and relatively little else. Taste has quite a bit of grains to it, and seems very earthy in the long run. Seems like a very "meh" beer to me.

Nice. Good flavor. Smooth, but has a kick. Wouldn't mind less of the latter and more of the former however. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

bitbucket (2159) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Bomber. Lightly hazy dark gold with a lacy white head. Lightly skunky aroma just after the bottle was opened, but that dissipated quickly. Aroma of grass, pine and honey. with a taste much the same crisply bitter finish.

brokensail (11613) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 29, 2013
Bottle @ Richard’s tasting. Light orange pour with a white. Sweet pale malt, floral hops, and some apple up front. A touch of yeast, biscuit, and some grass. Flavor has some apple and pear esters to go with the biscuit and bready malt. A nice yeast note, floral hops, and a touch of grassy bitterness.

nealblind (918) - Seattle, Alabama, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Amber pour slightly cloudy big head. Aroma of black pepper, apricots, wheat, and honey. Tastes of the great nuttiness of kellers. More bitter than other kellers. Grassy, piney hops blend in with peachy flavors. Palate is heavy and sweet without the payoff of big yeast flavor. Needs less filtration and hop bitterness and more yeast flavor. Pretty good for an american imitation though.

BillKismet (3360) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 8, 2013
Hazy tang color with 1" thick silk head. Breezy, refreshing bouquet of gentle citrus breeze--quite well-stated. Nice body with an orangy wheat character and a mild, orange-citrus butter finish.

I'm not well versed in the art of beer reviews so I'm not going to make up a bunch of stuff. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Yellow-orange with a white head. The aroma is full of yeast, orange and grass. I don’t really get the citrus notes in the flavor, but I do get the grass, toffee and earth. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
