Leighton (22304) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 18, 2013
Can on the Metro North train into NYC. Pours lightly hazy gold with a big, white froth head. Nose of cheap cereal grains. Light sweet flavor with modest cardboard, cereal and hay. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish with vaguely tangy citrus. Not very good, 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.

(12oz bottle) Large white head atop clear apple juice body. Aroma is medium sweet, bread, light hay/grassy, peach. Taste is medium sweet, bread, lemon sour, light corn. Soft light body with some acidity.

Dogbrick (13761) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 28, 2004
Taken as a Lager this beer is pretty good. As a Helles it is just average. Pours a clear golden color with lots of small bubbles. Thin white head with minimal lacing. The aroma is fruity with some malt. Light-bodied with a clean palate. Flavors of fruit, malt and a touch of hops and yeast. The finish is kind of thin and lightly bitter. Overall this beer is blown away by the likes of GLBC but it’s ok.

shrubber85 (11618) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 3, 2012
Can. Lightly lactic barley malt aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Slight sweet barley malt and lightly bitter hay flavor. Okay - nothing special.

BVery (11361) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - APR 18, 2013
Can. Mostly clear yellow-orange pour with a large white head. Grain and bread, slightly sweet, not too bad for the style.

DocLock (11025) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 8, 2014
Can. Gold pour with hopcitrus and pale malt in the nose. Tastes like a helles, nothing intense, but something I’d drink a few of with a Connecticut wrapper cigar on a 95 degree summer day like today in Philly.

FROTHINGSLOSH (8142) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 3, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2011 I am generally not a big fan of this style. This came in my beer club and is a brewer that I generally am not very fond of. +++ Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a straw yellow color with a large fluffy white head that produced some lacing. The aroma is light and dominated by a yeasty bready element. The texture is light and crisp but perhaps a bit thin. There is some light malt and an interesting spice character to the brew. Drinkable but not something I would seek out again.

wlajwl (7065) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUL 26, 2013
Aroma is light yeast, pale malts and a good hint of bitterness. The flavor is light citrus, pale malts, mild sweetness and a beery/bitter finish.
