tom10101 (2919) - Quebec, CANADA - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle (330 ml). Shared by JulienHuxley as part of the George tasting. Clear yellow/golden with a small white head and little lacing. Aroma is of corn, herbal notes and light sweetness. Taste is almost the same... it tasty like a Pale Lager country tick. Light to medium body. Moderate/medium carbonation. More drinkable than the other George (Mikkeller) we had tonight. Not offensive.

JulienHuxley (3263) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - MAY 21, 2014
Bottle as part of the George tasting. Clear pale gold pour with thin white head. Aroma is grainy, smells like a country tick, light honey, dusty hop. Taste is sweet, malty, not much hop at all. Palate is light, light carbonation, could use a bit more carb. Not a bad country tick.

Clear pale yellow color with a frothy white head that keeps a nice lacing until the end. Aroma is malty, yeasty, bready and some cereal notes. Flavor is quite dry and sweet, hints of paper. Low carbonation and a light body with a dry watery finish.

crossovert (7565) - Illinois, USA - MAR 20, 2014
330ml bottle. Served as cold as possible. Pours an extremely light blonde. The smell is light, subtle grains, water, and fruit. Taste is slightly fruity, some heavy water notes, some booze notes, perhaps some brett. It is not well-constructed.

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 10, 2014
Rating #957 - February 7, 2014. $4.29 for a 330ml bottle from Sherbrooke 4.5%. Bought this for the country tick, #letsbehonest. Aroma is cereal grains, corn, light hoppy whiff. Taste is more of the same, grainy, bland, and bubbly. Medium-strong carbonation. Nothing to excite in the finish.
