Bottle. Yellow beer. Greasy hop aroma. Fairly conventional lager but with slight more alcohol sweetness and viscosity. Sneaks up on you. But i don?t really like it. Would much rather drink a My Antonia. Pretty Things is awesome though. tcane7 (1674) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2012
22 oz bottle. Pours golden with fluffy off-white head. Nose is pilsen malt, mild grassy hops. Mild bitterness, light citrus. Conceals the ABV well. Decent lager, which is not my favorite style saxo (19531) - Højbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 4, 2012
Tap @ The Pony Bar, NYC. Nice head with good duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste are malt, grass, soap and hops. Soft carbonation. Semi bitter finish. bottleforager (3211) - Gray, Maine, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Pours a clear golden straw color with fluffy white head that rides along for the first few sips then laces out nicely. Aromas are subtle with traces of light malts, bready yeast and grassy hops. The palate follows the nose pretty nicely witha nice refreshing start... traces of honeyed malts, white bread, grassy hop bitterness and traces of alcohol on the finish. Nice lager with a pretty big abv for a lager. Great strong lager for sure. jredmond (8770) - New York, New York, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Draft with Linh and Scarlett at picco in Boston. Pours a clear yellow/orange body with thin white head. Aroma is pungent grass and bitter hops. Mouthfeel is bitter, crisp with notes of grassy hops, bitter citrus rinds and a light zesty spice.

Pours a golden color. Smell is of grains and malts. Taste is alcohol, some grains, light hops. Overall a decent beer. Onenote81 (1002) - Winston-Salem, North Carolina, USA - APR 30, 2012

22oz bottle poured into a pilsner glass. Pours an uber-dark yellow/gold. Great transparency. Lots of visible bubbles rising through. An enormous bone-white head caps it off. Great retention. This head stays thick and lustrous for the entirety of the drink. Scents of honey-kissed breads, sourdough, and lemon. Not a whole lot going on in the nose.
Great crisp and clean body. Lots of carbonation play on the tongue. The alcohol sort of mellows out the mouth a bit. Gives it a creamy finish. Great crisp taste right away. Grassy notes noted. Hops make themselves known a bit, but hold back from showing true colors. The alcohol comes forward a smidge in the flavor, which I guess is expected for the ABV level mixed with this style. Can’t hide much here. Refreshing.
I would have liked this with a little lower ABV I think, but all in all, this is a great beer, and great representation of the style. One of the best!
Crisp, slightly hazy golden coloured body with a wheatie, unfiltered glow and a thin, one centimetre tall white head with bunches of bubbles coming from the bottom. Aroma of nice pale malt, strong citrus, metal, sweetness and a touch of grass, herbal notes and hay. Medium-bodied; Assertive malty notes with a little metal, some alcohol, citrus, caster sugar and fruit noticeable. Aftertaste is a bit deeper with a lot of alcohol burn noticeable for the style, some metal, a lot of malt and some lighter herbal and grassy hop flavours to finish it off. Overall, a nice, but relatively strong beer showing mostly good flavours, but some deep and strong flavours that don’t work great for a summer beer - good thing I’m drinking it on an almost 60 degree F WINTER day! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from K&E Discount Beverage in New Paltz, New York on 09-September-2011 for US$8.39 sampled at home in Washington on 18-February-2012, bottled in June 2011. beerfest5 (1207) - Cloneen, IRELAND - FEB 14, 2012
Old rating from this past summer. Smell is bready, some caramel, citrus zest, taste is pretty similar with a little booze. phaleslu (10747) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 6, 2012
22 oz. bottle via trade. Pours a clear golden color with a moderate off-white head that fizzes into a small film fairly quickly. Aroma of lots of grains, particularly wheat, with crackers, grass, sugars, and faint citrus. Flavor of bready, crackery malts, sugars, grass, cereal, toffee, and light citrus. Light-medium bodied, with medium carbonation and a crisp, malty mouthfeel. Dry finish. ABV doesn’t come through at all. Really nice lager.
