Nice golden color, with a light, vaguely citrusy smell. Tasted of citrus and honey. Not a lot of flavor, but what was there, I liked. I can only describe the mouthfeel as soothing. I really enjoyed drinking this beer.

Tap at brewery. Golden color with great lacing. Very malty and somewhat grainy tasting. Bitter aftertaste.

On tap at the Brewpub. Rich gold color with a white head. Good lacing. Aroma is malty and sweet. Very close to a helles. Maybe a cross between that and malt liquor. Interesting and flavorful. A good beer made by some good people. friendly and fun place to visit.

Harsh and grainy flavor yet smooth mouthfeel. Hints of corn and dry bitterness. Deep color. Dee says: grapefruits! and nuts!

Golden body. Below-average amount of carbonation from what I’ve seen in the style. Minimal aroma. Bitter, dry flavor with unripe peach notes. Field corn starchiness underneath. I can appreciate how this beer has noticable flavor - it just isn’t that good.

The first beer I tried from this establishment (of a samplier), and hopefully my least favorite. Not real bad, but nothing special.

StewardofGondor (1934) - Washington Heights - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 14, 2005
Clear pale orange in color with some rising fizz and virtually no head. Nearly a pils aroma, with some accents of buttery biscuits, lemons and sourdough. Refreshing, but that’s as far as I’ll go. Pils musk, paling lemon briskness. Staunch, moth-like characteristic that I can’t place, nor do I want to.

JPDIPSO (6223) - Wauwatosa, USA - FEB 24, 2003
Golden color with a off white head. Slight sour mash aroma. Feel is fizzy. Somewhat dry/sour malt flavors.

Clear gold body with small white head. Aroma is faintly sweet. Taste is sweet, light grassy, minimally bitter. Light body.

2.2
heemer77 (5357) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 22, 2006
The body was medium gold. The aroma was ham with some grass and raw potatoes. The taste was dirty potato skins with some sweet raw banana peppers. A strange beer.
