Ernest (7247) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 30, 2013
Can (canned on Sep 18). Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is hazy light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cereal), moderately hoppy (flowers, lemon oil, grapefruit, resin), lightly yeasty (cobwebs), with a light note of pepper. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Light to medium body, watery/velvety texture, lively carbonation. Fun little beer...some crude resinous hop odor, sure, but the hop bouquet offers more than just that (although I suspect if this were fresher it would be more resinous). Nicely balanced, crisp and clean bitterness. Even a little yeast character too. Can barely tell it has corn/rice, so it’s not like most of these beers that try to recreate pre-prohibition lagers. Nice chuggin’ brew.

blankboy (7150) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 24, 2014
[Can (355ml)] Pours a very bubbly hazy yellow with a large lasting fluffy off-white head. Aroma of yeast, citrus, bubblegum, sugar, herbs, some banana and light grassy hops. Yeasty and wheaty flavour, light and slightly watery, along with light herbs & spices, some light citrus and an average, short bitter finish. Average bodied. Light and easy to drink but overly simple, just good.

onceblind (6927) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Light gold with brilliant clarity, until the bottom of the can enters the glass, then it gets that yeasty haze. Big persistent foamy white head. Smells lovely with lemon rind, hay, tangerine sweetness, pilsner malts, and a certain hoppy dustiness thats also just a wee touch resiny. Semi-full flavored with a bright grainy sweetness on the front, a touch of toast, some lemon zest, a bit of tropical resin and sweetness, finishing on a semi-dry hay and barn note. Fast finish. Like a cross between a modern saison and a good quality lager.

TheAlum (6860) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Draft on tap at The Bridge (St Louis, MO). Pours a hazy golden orange hue, a bit dulled in the middle with some nice glow on the edges. Frothy offwhite head sits atop and laces ok. Aromas are a bit fruity, apple and rustic grains, a bit of crusty bread, spicy yeast and a bit of gentle funk, earthiness. Initial is a bit fruity, gentle fuzziness and mellow yeast. Touches of fruit, gentle estery and tree fruit. A bit of warmth, some gentle pear and melon, faint bubblegum. Backend is a bit of spice, faint soap and citrus. Mellow yeast, bready malt and a bit of honeycrisp. Finish is smooth, cool, and fruity. Not bad.
