Pouredd a clean yellow, light head. The smell is light and clean with a touch of grassy hops. The flavor is clean with light bit of lemony and grassy hops, a touch of light. Light and zipy mouthfeel. Easy and no fflaws.

drsordr (1862) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - FEB 4, 2016
Bottle provided by alexsdad06 pour clear avg gold with rapidly dissipating minimal white head. Nose crystal malt, biscuit, bready, hint of apple. Taste moderate bitter bite up front. Then crystal malt, fairly clean flavors, and sharper hop bitter like European hop. Easy to drink just not that exciting.

I thought TG would bring the pain with this common, but unfortunately it’s no where near as good as Anchor Steam. Smells like any crappy macro lager and tastes like sweet corn with a brutally bitter and unemployable aftertaste.

DuchessOfIowa (142) - Iowa, USA - JAN 23, 2016
Poured from a can made in Florida. Just got these in stores last week and dated Nov 4th. Aroma is subtle biscuit and straw. Golden hue with a slight haze and thin white head that doesn’t last long. Sweet grain dominates flavor with a trace of floral. Its a good beer.

Inbreak (3560) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - JAN 18, 2016
18.01.2016, 12 oz bottle (dated 25.06.2015) sampled @ BBGTC tasting:
Tiny shortlasting head. Aroma is slightly sweet grainy, weeds, wet grain, hay, yeast, flowers, hints of banana. Taste is slightly sweet, grain, sugar, flowers, wet hay, minerals, yeast, almonds. Little bitterness, grainy and watery mouthfeel. A boring beer in a boring beerstyle...

ClubGonzo (4998) - Bergen, NORWAY - JAN 18, 2016
Bottle, shared with BBGTC. Pours a near-clear golden body with a small white head. Nose is bubble gum, banan, floral grainy tones and hints of red berries and straw. Taste is grains, sweet banana-like estery tones, straw, red berries and hints of wet grass and minerals. Light body, medium carbonation. The sweetness is a bit too much. Not bad, but very far from fantastic.

HuskerTan (1265) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - JAN 11, 2016
Bottle. A- Straw, grassy, musty. A- Golden color, clear liquid, white head. T- Straw, bread, subtle sweetness, toast. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, abrupt finish. O- This may be their flagship beer and a nice tribute to grandma but it’s certainly not their best. Seems homage to dinosaurs showcase their best talent. It’s alright, but nothing exciting about it. I’d say if you’re looking for a leap from the macro to craft world this would be a fine place to start.

Guruhso (107) - DENMARK - DEC 30, 2015

Plovmand (7286) - Helsinge, DENMARK - DEC 30, 2015
