On draft at Fair State. Gold in colour with moderate carbonation Aromas of grassy herbal hop, and very active whole wheat bread dough. Very grassy and doughy in the mouth as well, backed by some mineral and cracker notes. Mellow earthy bitterness. Fresh and moreish. trapped (3401) - New York, TURKEY - SEP 15, 2017
Can, thanks to Steasy66. Pours cloudy bright yellow with large foamy white head, malty aroma, mildly bitter crisp malty taste, smooth body, dry finish. Very satisfying. badgerben (5256) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - SEP 3, 2017
Can. Hazy light gold color with a large head. Grassy aroma with a little lime. Grassy, grainy flavor. Light lemon and vegetal hop. Dry. tennisjoel (1476) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - SEP 2, 2017
Golden pour with a hint of thin white head. Aroma is a little faint but notes of cereal grains, biscuit, hops, lemongrass. Flavors of cracker crust, sweet corn, spritzy hops. Excellent.

Pint can pours a clear pale golden yellow with a large white head. Mellow aroma of cereal grain, lemon, and resinous grassy hops. Taste of crisp sharp bitter resinous grassy hops, mellowed and balanced by mildly sweet cereal grain malt, cracker, with dry earthy pils yeast. Great balance, hits every aspect of my ideal beer, superb!!!!

Pour on tap at the brewery, hazy golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, bread, nice spice, grassy, and floral notes, hints of slight vanilla. Taste was a mix of grass, earth, spice into a bit of yeast, bread, some floral notes with a touch of grain, finishing slightly bitter. Very drinkable, yet very tasty. Sonjeroo (20) - - DEC 3, 2015
On tap at the brewery. Clear, amber appearance with a small amount of foam. Hop taste is present but not overwhelming. Complex taste and pleasant aroma. Really solid beer. Easy to drink-- could drink all day easily. Guerde (1297) - Leuven, BELGIUM - NOV 2, 2015
(growler) Pours a clear gold color with a medium and fluffy white head. Aroma instantly transports me to lager world with the requisite must and cut grass accompanied by some canned mandarin orange. Not too much here, but it’s nice. Could be a smidge of bartlett pear. Sweet corn shows up when warmer. The flavor is where this beer really shines, with a near-perfect ascension from dough to crackery malt, up to citric (orange again) and then spicy/grassy hop, and on towards gravel in the finish. The beer really snaps on the finish and cleans up nicely which merits a 5 for palate. Overall this is one of the best lagers I’ve had in quite awhile. islay (2867) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 1, 2015
Majority of 8 oz. pour, on tap at the brewery’s taproom in Nordeast Minneapolis, Minnesota. Consumed on 10-31-15. Pours a slightly hazy but mostly clear gold with a small to moderate amount of off-white to eggshell head. Not as cloudy as expected. Floral, subtle aroma. Quite pleasant but too subtle smell to be ideal. Very nice, Noble-esque European hops in the flavor. Dry, chalky, floral taste features flavors of Champagne and rocks. Greater complexity emerges upon multiple sips. Dry finish. Nice, long, dry aftertaste. Lively and frothy in the palate. Not as crisp as a lager ideally should be. The 4 I am giving for the palate is based mostly on the aftertaste. Overall good and enjoyable but not spectacular. Very likable; I like it more and more on each sip. Too subtle to be great but too drinkable to be merely mediocre. My rating rose from a 3.4 (7/3/7/3/14) to a 3.6 (7/3/7/4/15) as I drank it, and, if I had consumed a full pint, it may have risen a tenth or two tenths of a point higher still… maybe… but I prefer small pours to maximize variety, and most beers produce quickly diminishing returns after the first few ounces. Well executed and a well above average lager. Bacterial (3027) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - OCT 30, 2015
Slightly hazy yellow pour with a nice white head and slight white lacing on tap at FSBC. Bright nose with a hint of malt and a hint of spice. Super clean palate, a touch of biscuit malt moves into old school earthy and spicy hops. Dry finish, bitterness lingers. Quite nice.
