Neolithic humans evolved from nomadic hunters into a more settled agricultural society, changing life forever. The Ďfounderí crops they raised included wheat and barley. It is little surprise that the first examples of brewing appeared during this age. Brewers owe much to the epoch. Similarly, we thank our farmer friends of today for cultivating the ingredients the are responsible for the beers we now enjoy. Their laborious days spent ourdoors under the hot sun earn them respect, as well as a mark of distinction: the farmerís tan. Yes, the inevitable red and white hallmark of hard work.

Bottle. Malty and slight hop aroma. Lots of body and sticky. A little alcohol bite. It is what it is.

Bomber. Clear orange/gold with an off white head. Super sweet and malty. Odd.

Idiosynkrasie (4234) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - OCT 4, 2013
650ml bottle [8.6% abv]. Clear golden colour with average, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, white head. Sweet-ish malty aroma, hints of toffee, a touch of almond. Taste is moderately sweet malty, hints of almond, bitter almond, toffee, bitter hoppy counterweight; soft palate. I donít like this kind of malt sweetness, that is also often to be found in Barley Wines; here it is tolerable due to the intense bitter hoppy counterweight.

4/30/2011. From bottle. Pours pale yellow with a small white head. Boozy aromas with malt, yeast, fruit and bready notes. A little buttery with alcohol burn on the finish.

Poured into a pint glass after chilling to 38 degrees. Thatís pretty cold for a beer with a 9% ABV, but that is what ST suggested on the bottle, so who am I to argue? Ap: Straw colored, perfectly clear with about 1/2 inch head. Very mild carbonation. Ar: Smells nice and refreshing - very much like a pale ale or IPA. The alcohol is definitely detectable, but not too hot. T: Not nearly as hop forward as an IPA. Alcohol burn hits the palate hard, which I did not enjoy. The taste is surprisingly thin considering the larger number of ingredients and high ABV. Itís like a watered-down Double IPA. I guess added kettle hops such as Mount Hood and Santium technically make this a lager. P: Alcohol lingers and doesnít leave ... thatís a distraction. O: I may grab this one once a year as a curiosity-grabbing summer seasonal. People who tend to like beers on the cold side may like this one okay.

Bottle 75 CL. Pours hazy yellow small lacing head. Notes of lemon, bready malts, citrus, fruity. First was pretty lame after awhile opened up more and the tastes came out. Not bad for an lager.

RexTalionis (2703) - FINLAND - AUG 16, 2013
Bottled. Pours hazy golden in color with a small head. Fruity lemon in aroma, bit of dishwasher in aroma. Sweetish malty taste, some citrus and bit of booze in taste. It aint entirely bad.

shigadeyo (3092) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - AUG 1, 2013

6/17/2010: Southern Tier Farmerís Tan Pale Lager... Aroma: Not much there... Hints of grassy hops and biscuit-like malts. Appearance: Golden color; mostly clear; off-white corwn; minimal carbonation; nice lacing. Flavor: Hints of everygreen/juniper; reserved pale malt and some biscuit; quite balanced. Palate: Medium to medium-full; smooth, but slightly thick. Overall: Not overly intense; very drinkable and dangerous considering its alcohol content!

650 ml bottle from Jungle Jimís International Market in Fairfield, OH. Rating #289 for this beer.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - JUL 23, 2013
Bottle from New Beer: Pours a clear golden with good clarity and a film of white head. Sweet aroma of corn syrup, honeyish pale malt, and a very off phenolic note. Very sweet and under attenuated. Slick body. Candy like flavor of sweet sticky sugary sweetness, It seems under attenuated, Corn syrup and off phenolics. I pick up on a hint of European noble hop spiciness, but the off flavors are too powerful. Perhaps this was a decent beer when it was fresh.

Old ass bottle @ home, courtesy of jcnielsen. Thanks Jetson!!!!!! Pours a hazy golden orange appearance with a decent sized, cream colored head that doesnít have much retention. Lemony, papery, cardboard, quite sweet, boozy aroma. Very sweet and candy sugary, lemon citrusy, fairly boozy, syrupy malty flavor. Even when this was fresh, I donít see how this could have been all that great. At this point, itís a drain pour.
