Gregis (1281) - Stilwell, Kansas, USA - FEB 9, 2008
Pours a slightly hazy gold with a dense, frothy, ivory head that laces nicely. The haze is coming from tons of super-fine suspended sediment. The nose is a muted, yet straightforward, sweet graininess with just a touch of grassy/floral hops in the background. Light-bodied and thin with a slick mouthfeel, it reveals fine carbonation at the swallow along with just a touch of a metallic note at the crisp, clean finish. Mildly sweet, grainy malt again with a light metallic note at the quick finish. Not a bad pale lager. i could easily see myself putting away a few of these on a hot summer day. It’s worth trying, if not just to remind yourself that not all pale lagers are yellow fizz-water.

Dark gold pour with large white head. Nose of sweetness and apple. Flavor had hints of honey, with the a tartness of a grannysmith apple. Very light body, and clean clean. Thanks to cbkschubert for this bottle.

12 oz bottle via trade (thanks Hellbilly!). Pours a near crystal clear amber with a small white head. Nose is malty with a trace of honey. Taste is what you would expect from a good clean session lager, albeit a bit grainy. Not getting any hops in this.. Finish is watery. Body is light, carbonation is medium. A nice clean simple beer.

Poured a hazy gold with a tremendous white head. The aroma was strongly phenolic with notes of band-aid and some malt. Mildly tart. Hint of hops at the end.

Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - SEP 2, 2007
Thanks to maniac for this one. Medium gold, touch of bronze, slight head. Aroma lightly of bread with a bit of oat. Oat, cereal, faint floral hops on a slightly watery finish. Unremarkable.

auerbrau (3203) - Ithaca, New York, USA - AUG 24, 2007
12 oz Bottle. Particular smell of apple instant oatmeal. Curt and to the point. A hazed deep gold pours out, with a sparse bubble soap foam tinted banana. Flavor is a unique bready and peachy foam. The beer is expanding from its shake up, but still carries gentle wheats, light fusili pasta, and toothy apple pucker. Shy of any off flavors, however these flavors the beer has are a bit peculiar, however enjoyable. There’s some off hexane or Styrofoam on the back end, but it’s not too interrupting. Hops could play more. Pretty nice. Thanks Rudy!

jason (1834) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 25, 2007
Bottle. Thanks to cbkschubert. Poured a hazy golden body with huge head. Grainy aroma, crisp. Flavor is light grain, light malt, slightly bitter. Not bad for a pale lager.

2.2
5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 30, 2007
Bottle: Fiery straw, moderate sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Musty underarm grainy aroma, slight sock, a little bit of vegetable, toss in some wet cardboard, and pizza dough.   Thin malt flavor, slightly grassy, not so bad on the tongue as on the nose.   Very thin tho, finishes quick, too watery.   Only very pale malts on this one, and even then they are so very light.   Nothing I would have again.
