Bottled May 2010; Sampled October 2010
Not even a hiss as I pop out this bear-to-remove cork, and a solid pour barely produces some scant bubbles to top this hazed, gold colored brew. The beer smells up front of sweet grain, but the dominant note is that of crushed wheat, or really flour. A touch of spicy hop character adds a little something, but not nearly enough.

This is fairly sweet tasting, but more because it is flat than it is overly sweet for a beer of this strength; in fact it is actually quite dry considering it is 9%. This has a very soft bitterness to and only a touch of herbal / grassy hops. The lack of carbonation really kills the texture, but likely makes this seem a touch lighter bodied than it would be otherwise. The finish has a dominant grassy note that seems to be a combination of the malt and the hops found here. There is also a touch of lemon zest towards the end that mixes with a light, pale malt sweetness that suggests of honey.

Bah, I am quite disappointed that this was so disappointing; I wasn’t expecting much, but I was expecting a carbonated beer and this doesn’t even deliver on that. Well that is $8 dollars down the drain, but there might actually be some potential here.

Thanks IBrew2or3 for the share. Pours translucent yellow with a white head. Nose is corn, sweetness, white grape, and peach/ apricot with some slight bits of berry. Flavor is similar with corn, sugar, cotton candy, peach, berry, and all manner of insane sweetness. It would be terrible for BJCP, but I am a big fan.

Ibrew2or3 (7050) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - OCT 9, 2010
750mL courtesy of douglas88 pours deep gold with thin white head. The aroma is sharp spicy hops, floral hops, then apricot / strawberry / pear cotton candy and then followed by more floral hops. The taste is big rich floral flower pedals then lesser amounts of spicy hops, sugary malts and sweet fruity cotton candy. Nice rich noble hop brew.

This is a tasty pils upfront. A good hop bite right away. A little bit fruity in the finish. Good, but not quite as good as a top-notch regular German pils. Unfortunately this downgrades as you go along.

Clear golden. Foamy white head. Biscuit and noble hops. Smells a lot like a Pilsener Urquell. Flavor is a bit of a let down. Alcohol is not overt, which is good, but neither is anything else. It is kind of a wash. Med palate. Does not seem nearly the 9% ABV advertised. Will be able to tell after the I drain this 750 empty.

750 ml Corked and caged from my rip and run. Pours a honey gold with a slight chill haze (my bad). Thin pimply head, bright dense lacing all supplied by relaxed carbonation. Nose of Bohemian lager...grassy malts with some musty funk and the normal skunk. Latent heat and malt complexity along with a light lemon tone bring me to reminisce of some light radlers I had in Karlovy Vary. Body moves in gentle waves from moderate to full to a light easy finish. Alcohol is subdued.
