BMan1113VR (7813) - Los Angeles, California, USA - OCT 24, 2009
Bottle via a trade with jsquire. Pours with a white head and golden body. Aroma is grassy and bready. The flavor is, well not typical of a pilsener. Grassy, lemon notes and even a bit sour. Infected? Fizzy and dry. Not good as a pilsener.

craftbeerdesign (2158) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 10, 2009
bottle, thanks to jsquire pours a deep orange with a nice white head... lager yeast, some malt and citrus on the nose... big body for a lager... sour / tart up front with some orange notes.... this tartness continues throughout into the finish... softer sides with a bigger malt presence... there is also a lemon laced bitterness on the finish.... nice lager.

Capa (1963) - Manama, BAHRAIN - OCT 10, 2009
Pours golden orange with a tight, white head. Aroma has a bunch of orange, caramel malts, bread dough, and little hops to speak of. Tangy fruits, oranges, bread, and some lemon in the flavor. Medium to full bodied. A fun beer- just wish I drank it when it was warmer out.

Wow this was a surprise. Pours a slightly cloudy yellow. Aroma is yeasty, funky, lemons, malt and bread. Flavor is a bit tart and a bit funky. Lemon, yeast and caramel. I found it to be quite refreshing and quite drinkabl.e

jsquire (3387) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2009
Deep golden color with a thin, fizzy white head. Thick, yeasty nose with some orange peel friutiness. Bready malts with lots of yeast and lemon/tangerine citrus notes. A little funky tang in there, but still an okay beer.

kenb (1102) - Oregon, USA - SEP 2, 2009
12 oz bottle via Mys Swap 4 (thanks alexsdad!). Pours a hazy amber with a small white head. Taste is sweet mandarin orange, salty, sour lemon/lime all at once. This is a funky brew or has an early infection. Body is medium, carbonation is high.

Pipper (325) - Ohio, USA - AUG 8, 2009
Sweet faintly belgian candi sugar aroma. Pae orange/yellow pour with medium carbonation. Tasted pale and not very complex, tasty but not mindblowing.

Bottle. Pours a clear deep orange with a small white head. Aroma of bready yeasts and light fruits. Flavor of sweet malts initially and maple sugar with a bready finish. On the sweet side but pretty decent. 6/4/7/3/13 (3.3/5)
