TheAlum (5530) - Lisle, Illinois, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Sampler flight on tap at the brewery (Las Vegas, NV). Pours a gentle pale yellow hue, crisp straw, subtle faint haze with lively carbonation. A small frothy bright white head atop dies to a filmy layer, laces ok. Aromas show gentle bready malt, a gentle spiciness, cleaner sweet elements. Bread, straw, some grass. Gentle spiciness. Ok, a bit vague. Initial is well carbonated and a bit fuzzy up front. Bready malts meet a ton of green apple, a bit tart, some florals, gentle spice. Odd soapy feel. More green apple, a bit tart. Middle comes a bit back to life. Lighter end of the fold, well carbonated, dry and straw feel. Crisp bready malt, a bit crusty. Firmly dry. Backend and finish is a bit spicy, some straw, grass, and mellow dry elements. A bit odd at times, especially up front. A green apple and soapy harshness at times. Not my thing.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2010
GABF 2010. POurs a pale yellow golden with a thin white head. Aroma is grassy crackery pils malts, some straw and husk dustiness with light herbal hints. Flavor is light pils malt, cracker, some white wine hints, mineral light metallic, grass, earth and a dry mineral finish with a bit of astringency. A bit off.

decaturstevo (4869) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 12, 2009
Golden pour with creamy white head and lace. Corn, light malt, and a hint of hops. Light corn, very light malt, and a light bitter. Pretty foamy but not thin. A beer close to being real good.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4785) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Sampled on draft this beer poured a yellow-gold color with a medium sized foamy white head that left good lacing. The aroma was tart perfume with vague fruity hops and a bit of chalk. The flavor was tart, sour and a bit off with notes of fruity hops and egg white. Medium length finish. Light body. Not good.

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.

dwyerpg (4436) - 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.

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Draft at GABF. Pours a mostly clear gold with a nice white head. Nose is grainy, lots of pils malt notes. Crisp and clean with some light herbal hopping. On taste, it’s clean and simple. Easy drinking, balanced. Nothing really shines, but not a bad beer at all.
