deyholla (11161) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 1, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has some earthy grass notes with a bit of pine bitterness with a grain backing. Flavor has more of an earthy pine that mellows to more of a grassy note with a hay backing.

DasBierChef (1083) - Hudson, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Tasty, light bodied, easy drinking. A good summer beer with plenty of flavor but a nice attitude.

Consistently enjoyable. Aroma is somewhat like fresh leather with a hint of earth (which may not sound appealing for a beer, but its actually quite pleasant). Has a smooth, wholesome taste--like a good bread--and a satisfying bitter aftertaste. Really keen on this one; tis a collaboration that that worked well.

drpimento (3528) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Ok beer. Poured at a good temprature with a smallish, off-white foamy head that settles to some swirls, a ring, and plenty of lace. Color is a clear, pale yellow with lots of bubble trails. Aroma is hop, malt, bit of skunk that mightve come from the store under flor. lites. Flavors like nose, dry, lots of carbonic tang and hop bitter, bit of lemon. Bodys a bit thin and has good carbonation. Finish is like flavor, of average length, no sign of alcohol.

Maris (1482) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAY 21, 2012
From a 500ml bottle on 21/5/2012. Pours a clear light golden with a medium head. Has an exquisite aroma of apricot, peach and passionfruit, along with strong floral and hoppy notes. The flavours include light caramel malt, citrus and stone fruits, and a firm citric hoppy bitterness with a touch of grapefruit. Has a slightly vinous character. Light bodied and very refreshing, but more IPA than golden ale in terms of flavour. Top stuff.

Bottle, as pictured. I have no idea how old this is, I bought it on a whim because I thought the label was cool. Pours a clear gold, thin white head. Spicy scent, lemony. Taste is similar. Easy to drink yet flavorful. I like this.

DeliriumT (534) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 4, 2012
This beer has an incredible hoppy aroma which smells refreshingly citric and grassy. The taste is a bit of a letdown as the bittering hops are slightly too prominent. Lose 15g of bittering hops and add 15g of flavoring or dry hops and this beer would be amazing

Tmoney99 (14277) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 16, 2012
Bottle. Poured clear copper color with an average white frothy head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate earthy hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium earthy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. Good drinkable brew.

EHopper (620) - Minnesota, USA - APR 15, 2012
I liked it. Has that farm, crisp linen flavor and aroma I so like nice, fairly dry finish. Glad I had a chance at this one.

Atheist_Peace (981) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - APR 14, 2012
500ml bottle. Clear golden pour with not much head. Has a weird briny overtone on the nose with a side over overfilled garbage can and burnt rubber. Not appetizing at all. Skanky. Not much depth on the palate with a lot of bitterness and brine and sour pinecones. Gross.
