Bottle at home. Pours clear orange with a medium sized, large bubbled off-white head, medium retention collecting at the edges with good lacing. Aroma is light fruity esters (roses, apple and pear) with medium earthy, minty and herbal hops and medium sweet Pils and cracker malt. Flavor is medium hops and bitterness, earthy and herbal hops, light fruity esters, supporting sweet cracker and Pils malt, balanced to the hops with a dry and clean finish. Medium-light body and moderate carbonation with some hop astringency.

Reviewed from notes. The appearance has a hazy golden colored body with a one finger white foamy head, some carbonation is seen rising, some light lacing is left. The smell is sweet, somewhat grainy, light hops, some light fruit coming through as it warms. The taste is sweet and grainy through previously mentioned flavors. The palate sits about a light to medium, sessionable, weird grainy aftertaste and finish. Overall, well, though Im not much of a fan of the style, still good for it, but for me, unsure if Id come back to.

22 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Loud crack upon opening, probably infected. Pours lightly hazy golden amber color with a 1-2 finger dense and rocky off white head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that last. Dense soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a ton of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of lightly tart lemon zest, green apple, pear, cracker, bread, light honey, hay, straw, grass, herbal, light pepper, funk, and yeast earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with balanced malt and fruity yeast ester notes; with solid strength. Taste of lemon zest, green apple, pear, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, straw, floral, grass, pepper, light funk, and yeast earthiness. Minimal bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of green apple, pear, cracker, bread, light honey, herbal, straw, grass, pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of malt and fruity yeast flavors; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly prickly mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with no warming present after the finish. Overall, despite obvious infection, this was a nicely enjoyable brew. Obviously not to style, but was tasty for what was there. Very smooth and crisp to drink as well.

kramer (4894) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear dark gold body with a large frothy white head that slowly receded leaving a lot of sticky lacing. The nose is lightly fruity with some bready malt and and a light floral hoppiness. The flavor follows the aroma in step, slightly sweet bready pale malt, more bitterness than suggested by the nose. Lingering bitterness adds a lot of character to the finish. Mouthfeel is lighter bodied with fizzy frothy carbonation. Pretty nice effort.

Bottle. Cardboardy-caramely barley malt aroma. Hazy amber with a small white head. Cardboardy barley malt and grassy bitter flavor. Light body, soft - almost flat - carbonation.

dwyerpg (4528) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUL 28, 2013
I quite like the loftiness of the aroma, which has some hops and dryness. An orangish color. This is tasty. A definitely dry body, but tasty and good. Mostly tastes like a pils to me.

Bottle. Light lemon and hay aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Lightly sweet honey, barley malt, and moderately bitter herbal flavor. Not bad.

(bottle - 22 oz) Hazy gold pour with a puffy and lasting white head and heavy carbonation. Lightly sweet aroma with a definite grassy hop undertone. Floral and peppery hop bite at the start of the flavor. Not as much sweet malt as I thought it would be. Bitter taste lingers throughout and stays on the palate in the aftertaste. Good and very drinkable.
