UPDATED: JAN 29, 2008 Bottled at Monk’s Café, Stockholm. Hazy golden, rich head. Plenty of hay-like hops up front. Medium dry with firm, soft mouthfeel. A wealth of oily, grassy, spicy hops spreads warmth and a pleasant strong bitterness. A near perfect quencher.

Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Pale malty, clean and crisp, lightly toasted bread, light floral and earthy hops, but low bitterness overall. Balanced throughout and very good.

500 ml flip top bottle. Pours hazy golden-orange with a long lasting, tall, foamy, white head. Aroma is of grassy hops and bready malt. Body is medium and smooth. Bready malt, caramel, herbal, grassy hops and hints of honey fill the mouth. Finish is long and slightly sweet. Delicious session beer.

Swing top from Port Ewen rip and run. Pours a nice burnt umber with at thin tan head. Nose of malts, malt and malt along with some socks. Body is medium plus. head is minimal. No hop...as expected. Balanced and enjoyable. Malts are on the crunchy side (not too sweet). finish lingers.

Würzig-getreidiger Antrunk, gutes Mischverhältnis. Im Mittelteil etwas milder, trotzdem überzeigt der frische Getreideton mit der dezenten Fruchtnote. Diese Fruchtnote zieht einen süßen Hauc mit sich, zudem wird das Bier zum Ende hin kurz etwas malzig, was allerdings weniger auffällig ist. Zum Ende wird das Bier wieder würziger und gleicht mit dem getreidigen Mix wieder dem Antrunk. Sehr süffig!

Sweet little keg that Sam’s Quik Stop apparently got for less than they were supposed to, so it was only $12.99... not bad for 10 pints worth. Pours a tan-tinted hazy golden with a creamy white head. Nose of fresh country bread, some mild floral hop notes, and creamy caramel. The malt comes forward more in the taste, including some corn and grain, but it’s still quite a refreshing beer with a delicate lemony note on the finish as well as a mild bitterness. Light palate. Simple and beautiful. I think I’ll go buy a few more kegs.

5L mini keg I drank with friends during my wedding. Making it simple I am just going to steal a line from mj (read more of his ratings for further detail without the whole type of glass element): a simple, sweet, yeasty German-type lager. Earthy, bready, toasty, yet a German lager yeast without off flavors. However, I enjoyed the straight forward simplicity of the beer, as well as the unfiltered aspect. Hard to find a similar product without the oxidation or skunkiness. Maybe that is why my bar is set lower.
