bitbucket (2164) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - JAN 7, 2016
Can 8 of the Costco Advent Calendar. I’m liking this a lot more than I thought I would, as several of the previous cans in this collection were underwhelming and this one was a gusher. Fairly prominent malt character, somewhat sweet taste with nicely bittered finish.

Bockyhorsey (2626) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - DEC 13, 2015
Can 8 of Advent Calendar. Yeasty grain aroma. Yellow body with white head. Flavor is bitter and texture is rather mild. Easy on the plate not over malty for me with the style.

maxwelldeux (4272) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - DEC 10, 2015
Can from day 8 of the advent calendar. Pours a very clear golden color with a moderate light tan head on there. Nose has quite a bit of corn to it, with the classic lager smell. Taste is slightly sweet with a hint of earthiness. Nothing remarkable at all.

chinchill (3592) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 30, 2015
Mainly yellow 500 ml can labeled "Unser Original". It’s stamped on the bottom with a production date of July 2015 and a EXP(iration) date of Sept. 2016. 4.9% ABV . Appearance: pale golden body; clear and topped with a large, frothy white head that makes me think of whipped egg whites. The head is very durable and plenty of sticky white lacing is left on the glass. Aroma: Lightly sweet; mix of mild malts and stronger, spicy hops; hints of biscuits and lemon. Flavor: Lightly sweet. Spicy hops with lemon and hints of baked bread and caramel. Light body and medium carbonation.

Frank (3721) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 30, 2015
This is a pretty solid Bavarian lager. It’s golden w/ a huge head. This is definitely very much bready malt forward w/ just a twinge of grassy hops. It’s nice and drinkable w/ fairly light body and vigorous carbonation. It finishes w/ some grassy bitterness in the finish. I am not strictly in love w/ the hop character on this but it is otherwise a good beer.

StueyD (1549) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2015
A mid gold coloured beer with a frothy but weak white head. A light, mid roasted malt aroma, deceptive, nutty and caramel, brown bread. Dry mouthfeel. The taste is quite strong and roasted for the style. Brown bread, grainy, caramel and nutty, there is a mild bitterness in the background, bringing a zesty flavour to a well balanced finish. Bottle from Getränke Center, Freising.

reebtogi (5192) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 3, 2015
500ml can pours a clear golden color with a generous white head with decent retention that settles to leave only a few spots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is grassy with some spice and grains. Taste is a grassy and spicy hop bitterness with a malty sweetness. Grainy mouth feel. Light bodied with good carbonation. Overall, a typical helles lager with a bit more bite to it. Recommended.
