bhensonb (10688) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 17, 2012
Bottle from Half Time. Pours slightly hazy light gold with a slight white head. Aroma is mildly bready with herb/grass/citrus mild hop. Med body. Flavor is hoppier than the aroma suggest. Pale malt, quite clean, with a bready touch. For me it is quite bitter - likely noble considering the Saaz, but I can’t easily put a word to it. Grassy is probably close. It drinks very nicely. It’s really good.

Leighton (10419) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 5, 2010
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2012 Bottle at the Funky 6. Pours light gold with a modest, white head. Lovely, crisp malt aroma with some faint, grassy hops. Fairly sweet flavor with bread and a grassy bitterness. Light to medium in body with lively carbonation. Finishes very crisp, lightly dry and sweet. Very, very good. (3.9)

Bottle shared at Sander’s in NYC on a night of aggressive drinking. Pours clear, yellow-gold with a fine white head. Tangy white bread nose. Light to medium sweet flavor, a bit of faint hay, some dry white bread. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation. Somewhat dry on the finish with mild grainy malts, hay and straw. It’s an OK American-made lager. (3.5)

Bottle. Poured a clear pale color with a moderate frothy white head that lasted and had good lacing. Medium floral hop and sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. This beer just met my expectations.

TwoSipDip (8880) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - SEP 8, 2013
Bottle @ home, courtesy of a neato trader. Thanks! Pours a fairly clear yellow appearance with a white head. Fairly dry pils grainy malty, noble floral hoppy, basic but good aroma. Just a bit sweet malty, lemon, vanilla, pils malty flavor that finishes moderately dry with some herbal/floral hoppy elements. Solid.

JoeMcPhee (8302) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 15, 2011
Tap. Deep golden pour - hazy with a thick white head. The nose is lightly crackery. Distinct pilsner malt aroma. A lightly spicy aroma with a distinct Saaz bite. Peppery and floral with a light citrusy character. Zesty and spicy. Excellent mouthfeel with a nice soft lingering bitterness. Peppery and crackery. Great stuff.
