COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Road trips are carefree adventures that usually take unexpected twists, like when we created this beer. It started out as a Pilsner recipe, but halfway through it blew a tire and Ale yeast was put on as the spare. The result was so good, it never could have been planned!

12 oz. bottle from Harris Teeter Carrboro, best by July 22. Ar: Aroma is grassy, bread dough, and a bit of fruitiness. Ap: Pours a crystal clear light copper/gold with a small frothy head that leaves nice lace. T: Slightly sweet malty flavor up front, finish is nicely bittered with grass and lemony notes. P: Medium-thin body, medium carbonation. O: Gotta go against the grain a bit on this one. This is a nice spring/summer beer.

just an average lager beer with a hoppy bitter finish. smells malty and tastes the same. very tough to drink and not refreshing. got a bottle from binnys in melrose park. pours yellow witha white head. had at home.

355ml bottle. Though it was a session lager when handed to me. Golden pour, reminiscent of a hoppy aal. Definitely crushable but not interesting.

GT2 (9064) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAR 22, 2015
[ Bottle ][ 12oz ][ Safeway ][ $1.15 ][ Mason Jar ][ 3.19.15 ]
>> Clear light golden pour, thick soapy head, good retention. Nose is lemongrass, fresh linen, mild soap. Taste is grassy, bitter, slightly dusty, good body, fairly dry, balancing sugar, fluffy white bread. Better than expected. For some reason I thought this was a witbier originally- ended up being nicely surprised.

Appealing light orange almost wheat beer color with light fruit & spice on the nose. Bitter all the way through.

Pours a clear gold. Lemon, honey, citrus on the nose. Herbs and spices, sweet citrus. Nice summer ale.

deaconmike (413) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - JUL 25, 2014
Bottle. Aroma and taste have plenty of Pilsner character. A touch of spice and dryness. Body is a bit heavier though. Nice crisp carbonation. Ok, but don’t really care for the style.

kchampagne (112) - Jacksonville, Florida, USA - JUL 24, 2014
Light golden orange color with white head. This has a light aroma with pale malt and slight hops. Simple and easy beer to drink.

labattslover74 (56) - Florida, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Golden orange color with hardly any head. Smells of malt, spice and citrus. Taste is spicy hops and citrus, with a lingering after taste of of a crisp spice. I am not as impressed with this as I thought I would be. Still better than Heineken, but not something I would put on my list of good brews

ttutony (735) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 3, 2014
Hazy orange with a white head. Not much on the aroma, a little grain and slightly yeasty funky smell. Palate has some more of a phenolic yeast note along with cereal grain and a slight citrus flavor.

tmongoose (1501) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 1, 2014
12oz bottle pours a clear golden yellow color with white head. aroma malty touch of spice and hops. the flavor a little different than what I expected it to be. medium malt backbone. with that pils flavor in the middle and then on the end flavorful hoppiness almost finished dry. not sure what you want to call this but its not bad..has more pils flavor than anything else.
