COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer may have a cheeky name, but don’t be fooled; it is modeled after fine European pilsners to be light and crisp. Aromatic Noble hop varieties, 2-row malted barley and European style pilsner malt contribute to this pale beer’s smooth character.

Bottle from 99 Bottles (Federal Way, WA). Meaty, chicken stock nose, or maybe cat food, with lots of yeastiness. Pale straw color, big creamy head. Heavy grassiness, yeast, and some assertive bittering, and more yeast. Thin-medium body. Tastes like a grassy meat stew with some candy mixed in. Overall, not really as bad as that sounds. Way too yeasty.

bottle - Pours clear gold with a small, white head. It has a grainy, cereal malt aroma. It tastes of sweet, grainy malt and mild noble hops bitterness. It’s a decent light bodied beer, but not something I’m likely to look for again.

Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pilsener. Why? Well, its a pilsener by style, why would it be in any other glass. The appearance was a slight hazy yet tried to have a slight transparent yellow color. Light carbonation was seen rising to fill a two finger white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. The smell was somewhat grassy/yet grainy with a light sweet malts. The taste was basically the same and it left a quick dry sweet finish. On the palate, this one sat fairly light and came across fairly sessionable. The carbonation finished smooth and crisp and felt exactly like a pilsener should be. Overall, good job Southern Tier, I’d have this again.

Sweet, smooth, and a flavor I can’t quite place. IS the flavor a genuine lost ingredient? Some grain forgotten by the ages? Some morsel from a garden that never was and a soil that cannot be? What are those lost tastes? And WHERE ARE THEY? Do they fall out of existence like crumbs in the cracks of a cushion? I searched out this beer. I remembered it fondly from a cold basement in February. The beer was paid for by someone else and I sipped the beverage as I also fiddled on my yellow gibson les paul. 6 months later I stumble into a random liquor store and suddenly remember it as the only place in town that carries the eurotrash. Perhaps I wanted to go back to the cold cement basement? Perhaps I wanted to venture beyond that, to that realm where forgotten flavors float just out of tongue space?

(bottle - 12 oz) Clear gold with a white head. Light grass and malt aroma. Flavor is a very subtle grassy hop note with some dry and stale malts. Unimpressive.

I picked this one up simply for the name. Pours a clear golden color with white head. Cereal grains on the nose without much else; same for the palate. Finishes fairly clean.
