DocLock (9239) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 11, 2012
Draft notes from Lansdale Brew Fest. Poured hazy gold with white clingy head. Nose was pale malt, hopcitrus, with a smooth flavor of the pale malt, hopcitrus, complexity from the non-filtration, and this is a definite beer you could gladly drink all day.

Aroma is spicy German hops, malts and very German in nature all around. The flavor is malts, light fruit and a long mildly spicy German hops/citrus finish.

andyhwcinc (1762) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 7, 2016
Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home on a nice Monday late winter evening. Appearance is a pale yellow with a robust white head. Aroma mostly of lager yeast. Taste goes down nice and crisp with a yeasty profile. Not bad.

MetalNHopHead (1144) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - MAR 1, 2016
Urban Chestnut’s Zwickel tastes like it arrived straight from Germany. Bread-like lager yeast, sweet grains, and lingering corn in the finish. Light-bodied feel with plenty of carbonation. Not hugely complex, but enjoyable and true to the style.

HuskerTan (1420) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - FEB 28, 2016
Draft/Fest. A- Corn, grains, lemon. A- Gold color, clear liquid, white head. T- Corn, grains, slightly sweet. P- Light body, average texture, average carbonation, boring finish. O- Pretty bland. I just think I really don’t like the style. Might as well have been a PBR.

JulienHuxley (5417) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 21, 2016
On tap at the Hilton in St Louis. Clear gold pour with thin lacy white head. Aroma is grainy, light grassiness, very clean, fresh bready notes. Taste is grainy, light, malty, very light dusty hop. Palate is light bodied, dry, good carbonation. Very clean easy drinking lager.

Can at Revolution. Golden with a white head. On the sweet side with grain, grass, bread and some light hops. Drinkable but nothing special.
