On tap at Hofbräuhaus Pittsburgh on our way to RBSG. Pours a clear light yellow, watery looking, with a medium sized white head. Skunky sulfurous grain. Medium bodied, grainy. Lightly dry bitter finish. The best thing about this is that apart from the nose, it was not offensive. Bleh.

On tap at the Brewpub Christmas Eve. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. A smooth grainy honey nose. The flavor is nice; a Euro lager, grainy, some sweetness akin to honey, fairly clean. Enjoyable.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7619) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2014 Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a light golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma was tangy and sweetish without a whole lot going on. The flavor was tangy and sweet lager with a crisp floral hop note and a malty undertone. The finish turned a bit dry and bitter. Decent.

This poured a golden yellow color with a large white head. Aroma was very grassy and malty sweetness as well. Flavor was grassy and sweet and skunky malts. Not good by anymeans, but great for the style.

Draft sample at the source. The beer is a pale yellow with a white head of foam. Good retention. Bready aroma. Some lemon, dried grass. Sweet and doughy taste. Light in body and with medium carbonation.
