GABF 2014. Opaque yellow color. Malt and lager yeast. Decent palate, but rather underwhelming for GABF, with relatively mild flavors. This is similar to the Gettelman $1,000 beer.

UPDATED: OCT 24, 2014 Sample at GABF 10/03/2014, thanks to my sis for assistance with note-taking. Clear pale golden color with a thin white head that burns away quickly. Spotty lacing. Aroma of grassy hops, fruit and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of spicy hops, sweet malt and fruit. The finish is mildly bitter with a short grassy hop aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Much like original recipe beers of the champagne variety, this one was carbonated, super-dry, grainy and had a minerality that reflected the water-centric nature of these beers. Not the worst of its kind, but little better than a curiosity.

3.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light clear golden straw color with a medium white head. Corn and malt flavor. Nice clean tasting pilsner. Corn is so much better than wheat in a beer. That could be the Hoosier in me.

On tap at the Pine Room Tavern. Clear yellow color. A mild sweet lager aroma. Mild carbonation. Wow--unexpected honey-sweet finish. The sweet finish calms down a little as it warms and pairs with food. Nice.

Draft at Dutch’s. Pours a clear yellow golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor are pretty standard pale lager, grainy pale malts, mild hop character, pretty clean, just not very exciting.
