TAR (2685) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - FEB 10, 2016
Bottle at the brewpub, best by June 2016, consumed in early December 2015: Hazy golden. Lathery white froth exhibits good stability. Solid aroma of piecrust, honeysuckle and lemon. Hints of sulfur, dough and minerals. Soft carbonation. Zesty yeast and bracing minerals dovetail with scratchy herbaceous hops. The zingy brightness of the lemony and woody Spalt is softened by a splash of nectar. Yeast shows some concrete notes across the tongue and consequently renders the body fairly stark as it seems to hollow out the body and displace much of the soft malt textures. Pils malt is quite firm and refined, though, providing a pastrylike sweetness. Starchy malt finish is somewhat marred by more concrete, as a simple mixture of lemon and nectar linger alongside a slightly husky aftertaste. Easily quaffable despite a few minor flaws.

downender (7958) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 24, 2015
Bottle at the brewpub. Hazy yellow in colour, with a big, white, head. Easy drinking, with grainy malts, lemon fruit, a hint of clove spice and gentle yeasty finish. An enjoyable drink on a hot day.

harrisoni (17337) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2015
On tap at Mainlust Viereth. Hazy gold lasting white head. Yeast lemon lager malt aroma. Seems like an unfiltered version of the vollbier. Yes has same lemon curd some bitterness on the finish. Toast character. OK.

3fourths (9146) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Bottle at the Mainlust gastette. Cloudy gold with a white head of moderate retention. Yeasty and hoppy aroma is lemon pulp and flowers and dough with some understanding of the Pilsner malt beneath. It’s acidic in the way of raw yeast but it’s not ruinous for the beer. Medium-light sweetness with rigid bitterness. It’s creamy and soft and round in the mouth given the amount of yeast in suspension, and while the impression of hop and malt is muddled, the whole effects is still enjoyable in a juicy-citric-zesty way. No noticeable flaws, had good flavor balance and the finishing bitterness is nice. Easy drinking cloudy lager.

Koelschtrinker (17681) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 17, 2011
Ziemlich bitterer Antrunk mit leichten Getreidenoten, die von der Bitterkeit gänzlich gefressen werden. Auch der Hopfen ist äußerst schwach, macht sich aber immerhin bemerkbar und ist so auch noch im Abgang erkennbar. Knackig bitter im Abgang. 8/8/6/9/?/9

Pale malt-character, yeasty and slightly grainy taste with rural notes of barnyard and citrus; dry and quite bitter, slightly citric and herbal hoppy finish. Has some character. 16.XI.09
