COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Blending German pils and English oats, this very sessionable brew is dry-hopped with Hallertau-grown Blanc hops, and hints of white grapes, pear, and light peppery notes, with a subtly bitter finish.

PhillyCraft (3221) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2013
On tap at Pour house with vanilla beans and oranges. Small sample compliments of barkeep. Not sure what this dogfish looking system is but I would have preferred to try the regular beer. Notes are White wine, grapes, heavy marshmallow from the vanilla bean. Not much orange, artificial tasting. Not too good.

From tap. Pours cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is mild fruity, yeasty and light peppery. Mild fruity and light toasted malty and light estery. Bitter and light hoppy, herbal finish.

mansquito (3386) - Nueva York, New York, USA - JUN 15, 2013
City Tap House, Philadelphia ($6): Pours a yellowish color with a white head. Aroma is a little winy, maltinesss, and bread. Taste is really fruity in a weird way, but a good way. Finish is winy, which is pretty nice and unique. Wicked easy to drink.

Light golden yellow body, medium sized white head, good lacing. Citrus, grass, soft green grapes, a little spice. Light bodied, moderate carbonation, a nice even texture across the tongue, clean bitterness. Nice.

ReggieDunlap (3070) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy pale yellow with a medium creamy white head...nice thick lacing. Aroma has light wildflower notes...a touch of honey and pear. Flavor has spicy pear and grassy notes. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is pear and dry spicy/grassy.

MrChopin (3280) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 28, 2013
thicker head than melon session, same pale transparent gold body, thinner lacing. Dusty dough and grain nose, ultra strong and consistent. Flavor punches orange and resin mid, thins it with warmth, but otherwise soft like Smaragd, even more doughy biscuit through the end. Unreal softness and balance

At brewpub

3) CBC Tettnanger Pils
4) Smaragd
5) Summer Love
6) Hip Czech

8) CBC Mandarina

GT2 (8427) - San Diego County, California, USA - APR 27, 2013
Growler thanks to mrchopin. Flip top growler less than 24 hours. Pours clear, sparkling golden. Sheets of white lacing. Nose is fresh herbs, lemon, lots of squashy noble hops. Taste is quite grassy, squashy noble hops, long bitter grassy hops. Palate is sessionable, tangy, fresh lemon, long grassy hop finish. As it warms it opens up, the palate goes superlative grassy Czech hop lingering, huge hoppy long finish. Palate is out of control. So soft, quenching. Really amazing.
