500 ml bottle courtesy of beastiefan2k. The pour is mostly clear yellow golden, with a fluffy 3 inch white head. The head falls with a small amount of soapy lacing. The aroma is full fresh toasted cracker malt, nice gentle herbal mineral character, and hint of malt sweetness behind. The taste is the cracker malt, paired wonderfully with the herbal mineral, along with a nice spice, and the dry mineral finish. The palate is medium bodied, un filtered mouth feel, and the dry mineral finish is a real highlight. This is a great beer, directly up my alley. Thanks Eugene.

Draft to pils glass. Looks solid; a transparent gold with foamy white head. Smells of lager yeast and mild hops. Tastes like it smells with more of a yeast presence. A bit mineraly as well. Average on the palate. Not bad, but nothing to write home about.

Keg @ Urban Chestnut. Slightly hazy gold with a small head. Nice bread and light floral hoppiness. Fresh peppery hop flavor. Creamy malt. Sharp carb on the finish. Awesome.

Bottle sourced from one of their 4 packs. Beer wafts of bread, barley and weakly of hops. Appearance is a thick opaque blonde. Tastes like the best lager I have ever had. Not surprising, the owner of UBCB brewed a lot of AB’s best beers for Michelob. Palate is refreshing as a well flavored lager could be the only thing this beer is missing is hops has too much grain/ bread taste.

Bottle at home. Properly chilled and served, but I had a gusher. About 30 seconds of foam pouring out. Oh well. Other than that...pours a hazy yellow. Aroma is wet grass and lemons. Light bodied. Nice beer apart from the gushing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ARH (378) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 27, 2014
16.9 oz bottle poured into a stemmed Belgian tulip glass. The aromas are a bit of wet towel, with some lemon, bread, and a salty / mineral quality. It pours a hazy unfiltered honey yellow color with a soft, pillow white head. It retains well with an abundant sheet lace. It’s a lightly bitter beer with medium amounts of dry sweet. The waxy beer has a medium light body with a light amount of fizzy carbonation. If finishes mostly clean with notes of dry minerals, light lemon, bread, and a touch of salt. The aftertaste is very light and short.

Bottle. Pours a clear(isn) gold with a medium head and aromas of dough, honey and hay. Flavor is clean... a little dough, some honey and light bitterness, but nothing too interesting. Great beer for summer.

Slight bitterness on the palate. Tons of bread, hints of apple, and lots of floral hops. Slight earth and spice. Good all around.

On draught a bunch of times this last weekend.
Pours a hazy gold with a small head and good lacing on the glass.

The aroma is dough with some nice herbal hoppiness, it’s got some wet limestone and mild malt character.

The flavor is mildly bitter, grassy & herbal hops are pretty forward. The malt has a light toastiness and a touch of fruity character. The beer is a little yeasty, but in a good way.

Good enough I bought a 4 pack of it, thought about grabbing the 12 pack, but sheesh... I’ve got enough beer @ home.
