Oakes (11812) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 5, 2006
Dull straw colour. Slight diacetyl, slight grain and some spiciness. A bit peanutty, and also a bit underfermented (worty). Herbal but sweet finish. Almost tastes like Delster NA.

Ratman197 (9036) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 19, 2006
On tap @ Tenaya Creek poured a clear golden yellow with a small diminishing white head. Aromas of bread, straw and light citrus. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of cereal and light citrus with a crisp clean finish.

dwyerpg (4354) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAR 20, 2006
Suprised to see that this won a gold medal. Pale yellow-watery appearance. Mostly there is just something really odd about this beer. Dry hop finish, but also lumpy. Not great for sure.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2005
Leafy, green, vegetal hop nose. Hazy yellow golden coloured body with a low white head that recedes to ring. Grainy sweet malt flavour with some herbal hops and light bitterness. Light body with crisp, sharp, overly strong carbonation and somewhat watery texture. Sampled at GABF 2005.

Aubrey (3417) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 26, 2004
Light golden and clear with a thin head. Light and lively carbonation; light body. Fairly sweet base (cereal, grains). Hops were grassy and flowery. Mild bitterness. Really missed a saaz kick.

Crystal clear straw body with white head. Aroma is medium sweet, cereal, light dough. Taste is medium sweet, cereal, with the bitterness completely lacking. Watery light body.

HighGravity (926) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 20, 2004
(Great American Beer Festival 2004) Fairly weak pils. More in the style of a continental lager. No malt hop to be found.

OldGrowth (2481) - North Carolina, USA - OCT 7, 2004
Sample at brewpub. Ok nose, litely lemon and sourdough. Clean pale yellow color. Sweet and bitter. Citrus, lemon lime, toasted malts, hint of a clove or corriander. Lite body, kinda creamy, little bite on finish. Tasty enough, very drinkable. Though it was my first brew of the day and I had been hiking for a few hours so almost anything would of been good.
