On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear yellow with a thick head. Aroma of sweet malt, lemon, strawberry, light fruits. Flavor of sweet malt and light fruits. Not too sweet though- it’s more fruity than sweet. A lot better than I expected as it has more body and flavor than your typical "premium lager." 7/4/7/4/14 (3.6/5)

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.

Acetobacter (816) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 22, 2009
Enjoyed via draft. Pours a deep golden. Nose of malt with perhaps a slight hint of German noble hops. Medium bodied- appropriate for the style. Notes of malt tend to dominate the palate.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2011
Dark yellow with a white cover. Aroma is sweet malts, some light hay, grass. Taste is on the sweet side again, bready, would like a touch more hops for balance, but it is good enough to drink by the liter.

(draft @ Hofbrauhaus Pittsburgh - Pittsburgh, PA) Clear amber pour with a thick white head. Subtle malty aroma with a very light and dry hop note. Smooth and sweet flavor at the start. Lots of caramel malts mixing with a very light dryness and finishing off with a lightly bitter aftertaste. Smooth and drinkable.
