Sampled at Great Taste. Said to be an old-school lager recipe from the 1860s, which gets us off on the right foot straightaway. Lovely aromatics, honest hop flowers and grain silos. Just downright farmy. Crisp grassy bitterness, a lightly sweet grainy taste, going drier for the finish. Excellent stuff. nuplastikk (6453) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 13, 2012
Draft at GT. Yellowed-tan, thick off-white head. Medium bodied, some nice easy yeast tones. Somewhat watery but that works with the style. Classic noble hops..maybe a summer Hellerbock. Simple, subtle, subdued. Some graininess, lemony. Not mind blowing, but a solid brew. dionysus (1486) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 11, 2011
Thirsty Troll Brew Fest. Pour is deep gold with a white head. Aroma is somewhat grainy pale malt and some grassy hops. Flavor shows pretty much the same with a slight floral quality from time to time. Overall the name seemed more impressive than the actually beer turned out to be.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Tap at the brewpub. Semi-hazy dirty yellow pour. Minimal head. Light peach-fruit aroma. Lighter palate with carbonation. Lemon and wheat on taste. crossovert (13909) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 14, 2011
A pretty standard Amber ale, some hops here, some malt there, it is pretty nondescript.

Golden yellow. Crisp lager malt aroma, mildest of hops. Clean pale lager malts that finish with light noble-type hop bitterness. Good presence on the palate, more dense than expected. Crisp, semi-dry finish. Narnad (1521) - Crystal Lake, Illinois, USA - JUN 21, 2011
Clean, golden color with a modest white head. Aroma is very light as a whole but notes a grainy/light hay presence and a light flowery hops nose. Flavor has a grainy pale malt presence with a mild earthy hops middle and a very light hint of vanilla at the tail end. Body is nice and light with a dry finish. Overall an enjoyable, well balanced brew. cbfobes (2891) - Quad Cities, Illinois, USA - JUN 13, 2011
On tap at the brewpub, pours a clear golden with a thin head and some lacing, the aroma has a faint amount of grain and the flavor is pretty crisp and nice, easy drinking and smooth.
