3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours: Light, clear golden yellow with a small white head that quickly disappears.
Nose: Pilsner malt, biscuit, butter, slight hops, slight sweet caramel, and honey.
Taste: Pilsner malt, biscuit, honey, and slight caramel with just a hint of hops.
Mouthfeel: Oily, very drinkable, and actually slightly viscous for this style.
Overall: Great beer for a style I usually don’t like. Thanks for including this in the trade 321Jeff!

(16oz can via trade with DalzAle, thanks Greg!) Clear medium yellow with sparse white bubbles when coaxed. Nose if herbal, fresh grain, crisp. Taste is a bit buttery, sweet grain, earthy, biscuit, easy to drink with an oily body. Nice helles lager.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Bavarian Lodge back in November 2009.
Pours a nice straw color with a bit of unfiltered haze. A nice finger-and-a-half of white head with nice legs as it retreats. Smell has a pilsner, grainy sweetness with an ever-so-slight hop presence. A bit grassy with hints of herbal earth. Taste is very similar with a tiny amount of spice thrown in there. Mouthfeel is light with a nice crispness. Very drinkable; reminds me yet again why I need to always have more Surly.
Serving type: on-tap

16oz can (thanks to Beerlando for this bonus)... Poured a clear, golden color with a white head. Aroma of lemon, sweet wheat and herbs, and clean yeast. Very bready, strong with hops. But the hops played earthy and spicy oppose to resinous, thick, and bittering. Biscuity, light fruits and a clean finish.

Golden color out of the can with a thin white head. Light grain and lemon citrus nose. Very clean, crisp and easy to drink beer. Bready notes with hints of lemon. This is a great session beer.

Can thanks to ericandersnavy. Pours a clear gold with small, fizzy white head. Aroma of light grass, light malt and some red apple. Flavor is great! Nice light malty backbone, hoppy citrus flavors and a pleasant, balanced hop bitterness at the end. Mouth feel is light body with high carbonation. Overall, damn tasty, easy drinking beer!

Thanks DC crew
transparent gold, wispy white head, dies quick. Berry, toast, weedy grass, and light lemon nose. Flavor very sweet, milky, lime, milk. Thin body, needs some carbonation, grain. A bit disappointing compared to better zwickels.
