Bottle thanks to blutt59. I am not sure if my rating was so low because of the order in which we tasted these but I was not a fan. Tastes like over ridiculously carbonated corny trash water. Maybe an off bottle? DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - NOV 19, 2009

Some hop aroma. Golden amber coloured and fruity with a little dryness and bitterness in a crisp malt finish. Tmoney99 (14494) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 17, 2009
Draft sample at RB - Chicago.
Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate floral hoppy aroma. Medium body with a thin smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a small bittersweet finish of moderate duration.
Drinkable session brew. MrBunn (2826) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 8, 2009
Bottle that starts out looking dingy gold and ends with a color that a generous observer might call copper (on some sort of limited color wheel). Head is a small film of tiny bubbles and aromas are grassy with some caramel and biscuit maltiness. Flavor is dominated by watered down biscuit with a bit of honey and a little bit of a grassy presence in the finish. It’s good enough, but kind of boring.

This one poured as you might have guessed a copper color with an off white head. Aroma was slightly roasted malts with some sweetness. Flavor was smooth german malt with some notes of grassy and herbal hops.

This is a local beer I tried on tap at a local bar. I remember this being much better in the bottle, rather light traditional German-esque lager, very refreshing and easy to drink. I support my local brewer! drywallman (364) - Lake in the Hills, Illinois, USA - SEP 15, 2009
This one poured a dark amber or copper, with a shortlived white head. Grainy but biscuity. Just right for a lager in mouthfeel, and then the grassy finish. A good session brew. riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - SEP 9, 2009
Bottle from BeerBunker. Thanks! Toasty malt nose, caramel, and a little grass. Pours hazy copper with a lasting frothy head. Nice and toasty. Grass and a little pepper. Not complex, but tasty. Nice light lingering grass. Lively carbonation. A little lingering toast. Solid crisp finishing lager. walrussell (192) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - SEP 1, 2009
Not bad - not good. Skunky lightness in here like a crapola beer, but maltiness brought it back, and so it was decent if you just drank it and didn’t really think about it. JPDIPSO (6223) - Wauwatosa, USA - AUG 10, 2009
Lightly hazed amber to tan colored liquid. Small, but stable, off-white head. Grains and lightly toasted malt aromas. A hint of grassy hops as well. Fairly thin in feel, but doesn’t seem watery. Actually has a lightly oily feel as it warms a bit. LIght sweet start with just a bit of caramel. Herbal hops in the middle dry things out. Finish and linger are earthy and dry. Lightly astringent in the linger. The late bite takes away from the overall smoothness, but still better than what I would have expected.
