Pours a clear gold with a foamy white head and lacing. It has a light-medium aroma of pale malt and hops that give some grass, pine, and earthy notes. The flavor is light pale malt and earthy/ grassy hops up front with a bitter middle and aftertaste over a smooth, light body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is hoppy and earthy. Pour is yellow to golden with a large fluffy white head that sticks to the glass. Small bubble are riseing from the bottom of the glass. Pretty lite beer over all but still has a nice flavor and good hop profile and dryness that I love.

On draught at apex, clear golden color, white head quickly dissipates. Nose is of very faint hop. Taste is very smooth balance of hop and malt. Very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours bright lemonade yellow with a medium white head. Aroma is light honey, citrus, and an earthy hop. The taste is light and crisp with a great hop flavor and decent sweetness. Finish is ever so slightly bitter. This is a lager??? It’s light a really good light IPA.

Beer has a very nice pour, pale clear yellow; aroma centers on floral hops; taste is surprisingly bitter with smooth backbone but surprisingly thick mouthfeel.

UPDATED: APR 20, 2014 22 oz. Bomber. The beer pours to a clear slightly dark golden color. The aroma is very floral with a little citrus & grass to it. The taste is light bodied with slight hop bitter finish. Overall a very good beer to me.

Draft. Does not look real pretty and doesn’t carry a lot of aroma. That said, pretty good mouth feel. Nice strong spiciness to start and finishes sweeter. A good combo taste wise.

A straight forward but hoppy brew that’s really good. Aroma is slightly less that you might think, but the hops are there. The flavor has a rustic sweet that is really complemented by the hops that are citrusy. The finish is smooth and faintly bitter and the mouth feel is medium. This brew is certainly for the hop enthusiast...

I can smell the hops almost like if i was brewing them myself. The color is a nice pale golden color with a nice rich white head. It tastes very germanish light bogy and a nice hoppy flavor. Not so bitter but a good flavor. It has a creamy mouth feel and good carb. A decent sumertime brew. Good job on the germen theme. Worth a buy
