MadRobin (1883) - Silver Spring, USA - NOV 4, 2013
On tap 6 oz. sampler at Sweetwater Tavern in Centreville, VA. Clear, pale golden-yellow with an off-white head and sparse lacing. I suspect that nearly all the head was removed before serving. Aroma of pilsener malt, sugar, light floral hops and sweet citrus. Taste of white pepper, pilsener malt, citrus, floral hops and bread. Medium body and medium carbonation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JoeMcPhee (8357) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 11, 2011
Sampled at RBSG Grand Rapids. Deep golden pour. Bright fresh saaz hop aroma. Crisp and clean with a bit of very chewy fresh aroma. Softly fruity and herbal. Dry but bright. The malts are a little it crackery. Light-bodied (but after that last one what wouldn’t be). The flavour doesn’t quite match the aroma, but it’s pretty nice stuff nonetheless.
