COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
John likes bees. John’s 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 Sue’s.

MarkSachon (1023) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2017
12 oz bottle from Liberty Beer in Pittsburgh. Love the art work on all these beers. The beer holds up very well and is above average on all counts.

bubblehouse (1531) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 6, 2017
Not very good at all. No aroma to speak of and not very hippy. Only drinkable in a pinch.

Jow (3924) - New York, USA - JUN 22, 2017
Bottle at home watching a movie. Lighter gold. Nose is faint citrus and yeast. Tastes of yeast, lemon, herbal, hay. Light bodied. Not much too this one.

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)

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.

3.1
TAR (2763) - Blue Ridge Mountains, 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. I’ll 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 it’s 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 (6437) - 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.

2.8
thegreenrooster (4402) - 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.
