Can @ The BeerMongers... Poured pale, hazy yellow with a thick forming, frothy white head. This was a nice drinking lager. Sort of drying, but ultimately very refreshing with a prominent yeast spice character in the finish. Some husky, grainy, maybe rice-like tones, but clean. Low bitterness on this one too and with 4.5% it is a great session.

jgb9348 (4490) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Slightly cloudy golden coloured body with a rich, dense, three to four centimetre tall pure white head. Aroma of very light hops, hay, grass, herbs and a bit of sugar. Light-bodied; Sharp light malt flavour with cardboard and grain with very little else on the body, just a big dose of strong hops, hay, grass and a bit of wheat. Aftertaste shows just the hops, grass and hay with a touch of sugar at the tail end. Overall, a very interesting beer - smells great, and the first few tastes are good, but then you realise there is no body and no depth at all. Still, not a bad beer, but just not amazing - great to sample and neat to try this based on the malt profile. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Belmont Station in Portland, Oregon (not even local to me/brewery) on 27-September-2013 for US$2.38 sampled at home in Washington on 07-October-2013.

Can from the Davis Beer Shoppe. Pours translucent light gold with a large creamy white head. Aroma of a floral hoppy pilsner. Med body. Flavor matches aroma - flavors are not super strong - but quite tasty. Develops a bit of earth in the finish.

Reid (1805) - Salem,Oregon, Oregon, USA - NOV 17, 2013
12oz can from "Lifesource" Salem OR $2.59 Very hazy yellow coloured beer with a sticky.clingy white head. Aroma has phenolics,over ripe pear,roses,..unusual and unexpected! Taste us different again very "bubbly",some spice,pepper and a bit of bitter apple, good but not as good as the aroma! mouth feel is overall thin very dry tangy ginger root end! weird beer a meld of different styles..still OK in my book.

Decided this would be a great Football beer. Low abv, drinkable, tasty, and cool. Straw pour. Aroma of peppery yeast with pear, lemon, and some corn pilsner pale malts. Taste was nice and mellow adding some banana and clove flavor. Light bodied with moderate carbonation.

Can. Hazy blond with a tall, foamy white head. Aroma is strong floral hops, sweet malt, soft corn notes, light grains and herbal hops. Taste reinforces the floral hops along with more herbal hops, soft citrus, corn notes, sweet malt, grains and sourdough bread notes. Body is light-medium with a bubbly carbonation and lingering hop bitterness. Ends with big floral hops, citrus, herbal hops, earthy notes, corn, sweet malt, bread dough and grains.
