IrishBoy (3803) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAY 5, 2012

rougeau13 (1951) - Richmond, Texas, USA - APR 30, 2012
Bottle from Whole Foods. Pours cloudy golden with a huge, resilient, pillowy off-white head. Thick lacing. Aroma of lemon pepper, wheat, bubblegum, barnyard funk, and sweet bread. The taste is quite bland when compared with the aroma. Itís a little sweet and yeasty, but thatís about it. Medium bodied, ever so slightly dry, fluffy carbonation. Kind of boring.

legion242 (2143) - Richardson, Texas, USA - MAR 13, 2012
Poured a very average slightly cloudy yellow with a thick head. Really, really average beer all said. No spice at all.

cmonster (963) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 2, 2012
Bottled. Pours watery orange with a large white head of tight bubbles. Easy 4 on appearance. Good retention and lace. Nose is feathery yeast, and noteably dry. Light sweet flavor of dried grass. Tastes just like the aroma. Light body, prickly carbonation, and a dry finish. Minimal sweetness throughout. Good but lacking complexity and the yeast isnít that compelling.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Bottle from Jennifer Gottlieb, the cutest woman on the planet. Pours a dense, thick cheddar orange with a freakiní huge head of white. Aroma is field hay, barn must, and light flower bread. Flavor is buttery hay and berry wth subtle straw and musty grass notes. Thick, oily mouthfeel. Better than average, yes, but not spectacular.
