   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 8/20
frankenkitty (2008) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - OCT 31, 2006
A small white head fades quickly atop a mid-golden body that shows a light haze of particulate. As skunk notes fade, I find dry and somewhat stale aromatics with noticable caramel malt beneath wheaty grains. A tart flavor finds lemon and yogurt with a breadiness beneath. A thin palate dissipates the sourness quickly. A quick sniff-and-swig would’ve found this a drain pour... I’m glad I gave it a chance to open up.

Numenor (871) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - SEP 6, 2006
Somewhat cloudy golden body with a huge, frothy white head. A light fruit tinted aroma, green apple, pear and some citrus. A nice citrus body, some lemon, grainy with a nice carbonation. Slightly sweet and carbonated ending, quite nice really.

Draft sample at MBGF. Clear amber with a moderate frothy white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Light grainy citrus aroma. Light to medium body with soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of short duration.

drywallman (361) - Lake in the Hills, Illinois, USA - JUL 11, 2006
This had the dark straw look and medium lasting head I expect from a Helles. It had the adequate bready malt taste and slightly honey citrus hops effect going, with a touch of orange. Very good for the warm months.

from the bottle. poured a hazey dark wheat with no head just a small white ring. aroma some malts, honey and light orange and some other sweet fruits. flavor tangeraine with a splash of orange on it than some orange zest qwith a little lemon zing at the finish. I think this is the best pale lager I have had. good lawn mowing beer since I just finished mowing the lawn.

Silphium (3196) - Traverse City, Michigan, USA - DEC 9, 2005
Lightly hazy straw-colored body, thin/medium off-white head. Light aroma, slight sweetness (corny), bread, grassy hops and light diacetyl. Bready, grassy body, rather thin, with a touch of sweetness and a hint of butter. Drinkable.

SuIIy (1983) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - SEP 8, 2005
Draft @ Tap Room. Pours a clear gold color with very small fizzy head. Nose is something sweet, honey maybe?> but I want to say apricots or tangerines. taste is thin, semi malty, a light fruit haze in the mouth and a smooth finish.

barleyPops (1142) - Quad-Cities, Illinois, USA - MAY 18, 2005
bottle. extremely pale yellow in color with a fizzy white quickly fading head. flavor is of straw, spice and maybe a bit of honey. way too much carbonation.

OhioDad (2492) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - APR 7, 2005
Straw color on the pour and a white carbonated head that disappears quickly. The aroma is slightly of honey but mostly of straw. The flavor has some sort of spice in it but I can mostly only taste the carbonation. Not one that I’m going to buy in the future. It is budweiser in a fancier bottle.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 3, 2005
Middle of the road lager...very drinkable. A little thin and watery mouthfeel. Could use a kick in the ass, hop-wise, but OK, I guess. I’d like to see a little more crisp finish in this style.
