Yorker (1351) - Herning, DENMARK - NOV 10, 2013
35 cl can @ home. Pours clear yellow with a white head that leaves a little lacing. Aroma and flavour are grains, malt, and a small hint of hops – with an ever so slightly bitter finish.

Can. Light hazy yellow with a large creamy white head. Good retention and lace. Honey, flowery, grain, earthy, light bready, light yeasty notes. Light/medium body, light sweetness with a light bitter and dry finish. Gentle mouthfeel with soft/medium carbonation. Clean, simple and easy to drink, with just enough hops to make it a bit interesting while still easy to pour down without noticing it. Sometimes my head needs something straightforward, and this does the trick.

Straw yellow, medium sized white head, spotty lacing. Biscuity malts and grassy/spicy hops. Simple, clean profile. Medium bodied, a bit sweet, mellow carbonation, clean finish that could be a bit crisper.

pinkie (470) - New York, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Pours the color of light straw with just a tint of amber. Has a finger of creamy white foam that fell as I drank to a thin ring.Nose is malt sweetness and leafy herbal. Cheerful golden scent of grass and a bit of spice. Moderate malts on the nose. The taste is perfection. A citric crispness takes the palate to a smooth and apporachable malt sweetness. Leafy flavors with plenty of earth and a a spicy bitter. The mouthfeel is exemplary. Lively and crisp like a brisk wind. It’s sweetly breaddy and fills up your mouth to finish dry and with a touch of spice and faint bitter to linger in the aftertaste.

Friendly. A lively tonic with bright and favorable aspects. Just what the doctor ordered.

Bright clear pale gold beer, little white head. Light crisp palate. Mild minerals. Clean malt, a little lagerish. Very light touch of paper, nothing serious. Forensic trace of hops. Dry finish. Okay.

12 oz can purchased at Pinocchio’s Beer Garden in Media, Pennsylvania. The can opens with a pull tab type pull-top which opens pretty much the entire top of the can (as pictured). The pour is a slight haze golden yellow with a one inch white that falls loosely. The aroma is hay malt grain and an earthy hop. The taste is the elements of the nose, malt grain and earth hops - clean and balanced. Nice bright finish. The palate is medium to light bodied with a softer carbonation. Nice one.
