DiarmaidBHK (3418) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2011
Pours golden from tap with a thin white head. Not a ton of aroma. Tastes crisp and clean. Finishes dry. I don’t know how sessionable this beer is but it works when you need a cold one.

Steeeve (327) - Ambler, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 4, 2011
On tap at Bock Fest. Clear medium-light gold pour with a foamy white head. Aroma is very similar to their Helles Bock. Sweet caramel malts are the base, but there is a nice floral hop profile. Flavor is well balanced. There is a definite hoppiness to it that keeps it from becoming too sweet. I wouldnt say the body was watery, but it was a little thinner than I expected. Not bad, really. I got this confused with the Helles Bock, but I ended up liking this one a lot more.

trans gold, thinnest white ring that goes tepid. Lightly Bitter grain nose, grass, lightly sugary dough, hints of tea leaf. Grass, grainy bitterness in flavor, lasting sharp wheat through the lightly carbonated but effervescent finish.

jeff789 (1407) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2010
Pours a clear pale yellow, small white head, quite viscous... Limited aroma, a little bready... Flavor is a touch sweet, a very small touch of grassy hops, biscuity malt... medium thin body, a little too sweet....

Capa (2030) - Manama, BAHRAIN - OCT 11, 2010
Draught at the Phoenixville location. Golden with no real head. Malty with some earty hops in the aroma. Flavor is much the same as the aroma. Fairly crisp and light overall. A decent brew.

alobar (2791) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2010
Pale yellow color with a grassy nose. Crisp, light with hops and pils on the palate. Very drinkable for the style, but uninspiring overall.

tgncc (2823) - Bellmore, New York, USA - JUN 21, 2010
The aroma is malty, some adjuncts like corn. The appearance is a clear gold, small white head. The flavor is malty, some toasted malts, some grass. The finish is purely a noble hop bittering. OK.

Draft at the brewpub. Very clear and light, fresh wet hay nose. Super-clean and crisp, light but firm maltiness, subtle finishing earthy hops. Good not great.
