COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
John likes bees. Johns like of bees led him to hanging out with other people who like bees. Some of the other people who like bees work at The Field Museum. The Field Museum was opening a bistro and bar. John was opening a brewery. And that is pretty much the story of how Off Color and The Field Museum collaborated to make this crisp, clean pilsner with a dry-hopped bite far inferior to Sues.

LilBeerDoctor (3886) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 22, 2017
Bottle. Pours a super clear straw yellow with a thin white head. Aroma of floral hops, citrus, pale bready malt. Flavor of pale malts, earthy hops, light bitterness in the finish. A nice dry-hopped pils, light palate with slight bitterness. 7/4/7/4/14 (3.6/5)

BeerdedDave (1623) - Beckley, USA - MAY 16, 2017
pale gold color; light hop aroma; a light lager with a nice, crisp, clean, hoppy character; very light, just slightly sweet malt

jkwood04 (5438) - Connecticut, USA - APR 24, 2017
On tap in a weizen glass. Pours golden with a white head. Aroma of light floral hops, some pale malts, light toast and bread. Flavor the same. Average texture. A decent beer.

TAR (2732) - Marshall (Asheville area), North Carolina, USA - APR 18, 2017
Inordinately-pale golden. Fluffy white head is quick to diminish. Mute, yet airy and clean, aroma of white cracker, pepper, melon, and lemon. Hint of spent tealeaves and wet paper. Softly carbonated. Notably soft, with dainty flower petal notes on entry. Ghostlike maltiness is subdued to a fault and also structureless, throwing some wet-paper notes which brings a limpness to the body along with some vivider dry cracker whispers. A mildly perceptible grassiness (uncured hay) from the malt is in there as well. Though the water character is admirably soft, it lacks the malty firmness that would better serve it. Sprucelike hops and some polished nectar notes abound over very subtle glazed lemon zest suggestions. Mostly clean, aside from a very minor note of saccharine and some vegetable flabbiness. Some starchiness gathers steam late, before finishing airy and dryly malty, with grass and flower notes preceding light papery shades. Ill give props to the brewers for not Americanizing this like all the cool bros are doing these days with the style, i.e. not aging it in a wine barrel or dry-hopping it excessively (with emphasis on excessively). But its just slightly too sterile and neutral and needs a bit more old world charm and character to excite me. Fermentation is clean, though, and that says more than 95% of the other lagers out there. 100% European hops is a plus, too. Sincere and serviceable, but not the most memorable.

mansquito (6248) - Nueva York, New York, USA - MAR 19, 2017
Hops and Hocks, Brooklyn bottle: pours super pale with a white head. Very faint aroma... lemony. Taste is very light. Not very bitter. Very easy.

thegreenrooster (4328) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - MAR 18, 2017
Pour is a clear yellow with a small fizzy white head. Aroma is kind of a sweet syrupy lager malt. Flavor is a heavier than usual malt for a pils then comes a small hop bite. This was not a real stellar pils. Even with the heavier malts this still turned out pretty thin and not very exciting.

alexsdad06 (10069) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 11, 2017
Bottle sample shared by Chris R. Pours a clear golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have good pils character, grassy, floral, hints of citrus, pale malts, nothing bad just nothing about this beer tells me to have it again.

Scipio (1000) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAR 6, 2017
Pours a watery, clear yellow with a thin white head. Corn, bread, floral hops, and lemon make up the aroma, which isnt all that strong. The taste has a little more going for it than the nose did, but is still unimpressive. I get a lot of corn and grain, with a little bit of honey and grass. I cant forget about bread. There is plenty of bread. Just a bit of sweetness is found in here, and it has a slight aftertaste of honey. Light in body, thin in texture, and average in carbonation. I wasnt a fan of this one.

tmoreau (4221) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - FEB 3, 2017
On tap at Ellyns Tap & Grill in Glen Ellyn, IL. and shaker served showing a clear & bright, light golden color, frothy, white head foam, and a sheet-like coating of spiraling lace. The nose was a light lager/pils scent, soft grain, and hints of honey sweetness and ripe lemon. Light to medium bodied, the taste followed similarly, with somewhat low carbonation, and modest but lingering, earthy bitterness. A sessionably accommodating Pils.

JPDIPSO (6171) - Wauwatosa, USA - JAN 25, 2017
3660 Off Color Tooth and Claw Ar- 6 Ap - 3 Fl - P - O - Rate Bright yellow color with a diminished white head. Scents of raw grain, pale malt, light citrus and grass. Light sweetness in the front, meet a rather sharp acidity/bitterness in the middle. Grassy and herbal hops (while typical in the pils, this is a little bit to the extreme not bad, but perhaps too distracting). Wintergreen and lemongrass come to mind. Could be a bit more crisp in the finish. The sweetness/citrus/bitterness all seem to clash.
