jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JUN 27, 2004
Clear amber body with a dense white head. Bready lager aroma. Nice malty lager flavors, bread and a decent hoppy hit. Medium bodied and goes down easy. Nice beer overall.

The body is medium gold with little flashes of amber. The head is definitely a good one. This is a moderately malty lager with an almost honey nose. I was impressed.

Dickinsonbeer (5077) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Light amber, very clear with moderate white fluffy head and good lacing. Not as hoppy overall as some vienna’s and very strong. However the strength is hidden very well and only hits you after 2 beers. Very malty and bready with a medium motuhfeel. Exceptionally drinkable for a strong lager.

pivo (2566) - GERMANY - JUL 24, 2004
TAP: light nose, gold color, foamy head. Wasn’t expecting much but this really got better the more I got into it. Light caramelly malt with a little citrus. Late-arriving gritty bitter in the center of the tongue. Smooth round edges. Pretty damn good and true to style.

TAR (2499) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - JUL 2, 2004
Draft: Ambery golden. Sticky-bubbled whisp of foam. Toasted bread, unspent malt aroma. Fairly airy with hints of pumpkin stem and peach skins. Soft, yet firm, carbonation. Slick-bodied. Frontal bready malt flavors touched with sassy hops. Lovely yeast character. Slightly tangy with roasted malts and leather hints. Hops pickup toward the finish and unleash plenty of bushy, earthy bitterness and lush toasted malts. Roasted wood and spicy hops linger amid notes of mineral and peach pit. Not bad, but I expected more from these lager masterminds.

DocLock (7876) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2004
Pours dark straw, with aroma of malt, toffee, some citrus, and some fruit. Tastes malty, with some toffee, fruit, and nuts at the finish.

axilla (962) - New Providence, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 18, 2005
sampled at brewpub. Poured light yellow with a small white head. Light but sweet carmel nose with a little citrus. Flavors are carmel, nuts, and a little dough. Not much hop flavor. Decent lager.

Phatz (225) - Paradise, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2006
This is one of the absolute most approachable beers I’ve experienced. With all the recent conversations about approachable, easy going transition beers I wanted to start off by saying this definitely falls in that category. Appearance: Typical for the style. It is a pale golden color, completely translucent. Head fades fast and leaves no lacing. Smell: Musty and sweet right up front. It is gently malty with a clear presence of some hops but it is just laid back and relaxed. Taste: The taste is the same way. Laid back and relaxed. This beer is interesting and good to taste but is remarkably easy to just drink with out thinking. The lightly toasted malts have a barley caramelized attribute to them. The hops character does not want you to notice it; so well balanced and simply supporting the overall affect of the beer on the palate. There is a bit of homemade bread or dough attribute as well, maybe that is what subconsciously says take off your shoes, sit on the porch and enjoy the hell out of me. Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is incredibly smooth. this style tends to be very crisp and this one is light crispy and only gently bitter in the dry aftertaste. A bit more slick than some. Drinkability: Many of the characteristics of this beer may seem reserved. It may not be as ‘big’ as some of you my prefer, but it is remarkably easy, one of the most enjoyable session beers I can think of. Hope this is helpful. Cheers!

Poured a golden color with a small white head, and no real lacing. Bready, light citrus, lightly malty aroma. Toasted dough, sweet and chewy malt, very light citrus malts.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - MAY 30, 2005
Draught. Pale golden, white head, aroma is slightly grainy. Flavor is similar, crips finish, with a grassy aftertaste. Simple beer, made fairly well.
