12oz bottle poured into snifter. Opened next to the Yeast American Style. Comparing them both side by side I’d have to say that I enjoyed this one a little more. Seemed to have a better balance and drinkability. nick76 (4399) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2012
The aroma is yeasty and hoppy with pine, citrus, and herbs along with yeasty bread and caramel. The appearance is hazy amber with a foamy head. The taste is bitter and unimpressive but like the aroma. The palate is smooth for the style. Overall pretty much on par for this brewer but so-so.

11.2oz bottle from Gomer’s Lees Summit, MO. Totally forgot I had all these. Pours a cloudy, orange-amber-gold colored body with a finger-width, creamy, beige head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma has some nice orange hops with a medium sweet, bready malt backing that has some caramel to it. A bit of a grassy spice and fruity apricots as well. Flavor is bready caramel, orange hops with some grassy spices, and somewhat piney towards the end. Finishes clean and dry with a medium-high bitterness before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Smooth, medium body and a creamier, moderate carbonation. Overall, clean and smooth with some nice fruit notes, but a bit too bitter. My favorite of the series so far, but haven’t had the Brett yeast yet. mcberko (18441) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 6, 2012
11.2 oz. bottle, pours a murky, opaque orangey brown with a medium beige head. Aroma of grassy hops, herbal notes, earth, and some feint tropical fruits. Flavour of earthy dry hops, grainy malts, rye-like bread, and finishes with a very slight fruity tinge. Nice dry body, though a little dirty and messy. Decent.

from Erzbierschof - hazy dark orange-blond beer with a persistent foam; chewy malts and some fruity notes; full-bodied, sticky and corny; solidly bitter; quite dry and with a long fruity hoppiness

12oz bottle 7/22/12 (Binny’s Naperville)-41° in Lager Glass-Pours a hazy amberish golden with a small white head. Aroma of hops, caramel, and sweetness. Taste of hops, citrus, malt, caramel, and bread. This medium bodied brew was not bad. I don’t know what I was expecting but it hides the ABV very well. beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - JUL 19, 2012
Sampled on 5/5/2012. This “IPA/Strong Pale Lager(?)” pours a slightly cloudy orange gold color from a 330ml bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, caramel and sweet. A medium bodied ale. The malts are caramel and sweet. The hops are herbal and earthy. Decent carbonation. Not a whole lot of that typical pilsner spiciness. A touch of sweetness at the finish. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet. madmitch76 (25101) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUN 25, 2012

UPDATED: MAR 16, 2012 Bottled: Pours hazy murky amber with a huge fluffy, off-white head with excellent lacing. The nose is with piney, earthy hops and caramel. The flavor is medium sweet with bitter hops, with citrus fruits and caramel notes. Medium bodied with a bite, oily texture and lively carbonation. Solid bitter and more dry finish. OK.
