This beer is a little difficult to rate, after every sip my opinion of it seemed to change. I like what was attempted here, but there is just something about it I don’t love. There is something that is hard to pinpoint that is clearly off with this one. It doesn’t have the best aftertaste either. Not a bad beer, but I have to deduct a bit for that "off" feel I am getting.
A hazy golden pour with a very small white head. The aroma is Saaz hops with light malt and some grain. This beer came in a beautiful 750 ml. bottle with a cork and cage. Excellent marketing but the product inside doesn’t come close to matching it. Some light spice is a dominant theme but is not big at all. Unfortunately, that is the biggest and best thing going in this beer. There is some grass and some grain. Alcohol is overdone. GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - NOV 12, 2010
Not bad at all and very drinkable. Excellent head retention. Bright golden yellow in color. Smells and tastes fresh. This is masterfully brewed to perfect balance of all components. 17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 12, 2010
Bottle. Pours a viscous clear glowing golden yellow with a fizzy bubbly head. Aroma and flavor is muted by the alcohol, although the alcohol is not abrasive, very floral, syrupy sweetness, lacks brightness and depth. rlgk (18851) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 9, 2010

75 cL bottle, courtesy of cgarvieuk. Pours clear and golden yellow with a small, white and lacing head. Aroma is mild fruity and citrusy hoppy. Grassy, sweet malty and light citrusy hoppy. Bitter and dry into a bitter finish. cgarvieuk (25391) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 6, 2010
Bottle at home from my 60 bottle GBBF 2010 haul ... crisp pale yellow ... thin white head ... light grassy lager hop nose ... sweet hop front .. then that grainyness... really not my thing ... quite sweet linger Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 5, 2010
In short: A gross yellow beer of some kind. A mess.dmac (6395) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - NOV 4, 2010
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed fresh soon after receiving it from footbalm as a bonus.
The look: Clear yellow body topped by a quickly receding white head
In long: Nose is some kind of cross between an Asian deep fried banana dessert and candied apples with a band-aid touch. Taste is yellow jelly beans, sponge cake, white sugar, ripe bananas, canned pears, band-aids, candied apples. Annoyingly sweet. Body is extremely oily and the mouthfeel is sickening. That beer is a total trainwreck. I really didn’t expect that. I haven’t been so simultaneously surprised and grossed out since the day I accidentally sat on my blind-date’s colostomy bag
750 ml cork and caged bottle from Jonathan Ron Brielle. Poured a dark copper with a very full foamy bright white head. Aroma has lots of notes of grape juice with some wet bread. Medium/full body with average carbonation and a disipating head. Flavor is grainy with some dough and bread crusts along with you guessed it, white grapes. This is just an odd style, pilseners don’t need to be imperialized.
