Bottle post Thanksgiving dinner. Pours dirty blonde with fluffy bone white head. Nose and taste of lemon, grassy hop, spicy malt, celery salt, peppercorn and toasted grain. Medium body. brokensail (16648) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 7, 2011
A: The beer pours a pale, hazy straw color with a huge white head.
S: A weird, but not awful, aroma that is just full of apples. There is a lot of yeast and some cracker malts as well as a light pepper note. Some light grassy and floral hops, too.
T: The beer is lightly sweet with plenty of more of that green apple character. In addition to the apples, there are some other light fruits such as pears. Really weird esters on this beer... A touch more sweetness from some bread and cracker malts.
M: This beer is medium bodied with a very high level of carbonation.
O: While this is apparently a lager, the yeast profile was more in line with a lot of their saisons. A strange beer... bhensonb (15760) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 31, 2011
Capped 750 from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy gold with a white head. Med body. Flavor is earthy/fruity like a saison. Finishes with earthy hop bitter. Just excellent. bu11zeye (13215) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 2, 2011
(750ml bottle) Pours a lightly hazy yellow with a rocky white head. Aroma of florals, grass, white pepper, and light orange. Flavor of florals, grass, earth, and lemon with a dry, bitter finish. j12601 (13114) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - MAR 17, 2011
Bottle at the hotel tasting after Night of the Barrels at EBF. Pours a clear golden yellow with a thin white head. Big sweet grain. Huge carbonation. Sweet musk. More of a saison than a lager I think. Crisp grain on the finish. Nice stuff.

Bottle thanks to Ben shared at the post NotB tasting. Poured a clear pale yellow with a white head that dissipated slowly to the edges. Aroma was full of sweet grains with notes of grassy hops and a slight apple note. Flavor was full of sweet grains throughout with a hint of apple and crisp grass hops rounding out the beer. hopscotch (11236) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - OCT 23, 2010
Bottle… South Florida Throwdown 2010… Hazy straw-colored lager with a small, creamy, white head. Great retention. The aroma is very, very hoppy – a seeming potpourri of varietals. Sorachi Ace isn’t one of them, but I’m picking up lemon peel, green apple and white pepper. Light-bodied with prickly carbonation. Nicely bittered and refreshing. Low sweetness. Finishes bitter, coarse and dry. Different. Thanks go out to DA for the bottle! marcus (10680) - Sacramento, California, USA - JAN 31, 2011
Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours cloudy yellow with a generous white head and a light floral aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor with a yeasty bitter finish. Stays on the palate.
