In the style of 70s and 80s British Punk Rockers who fought the law to death and glory in the clash of the lower class leftists with limited career opportunities.

The beer is well balanced with delicate flavors throughout, using a Munich lager yeast that highlights the ingredients clearly and gives the beer a soft yet satisfying finish. Brewed with Canadian grown pilsener malt and magnum, liberty and tettnanger hops from Mt. Angel. 6.77% abv

Seems a little low in ABV to be in the SPL/IP category, no? Anyway, lushawn was gracious enough to share this in our hotel room before DLD 12- thanks again, Shawn! Pours a pale yellow color with a big, frothy white head. Notes of lemon, bread, funk, dusty books, musty grains, and floral notes. Medium-bodied, with a malty mouthfeel and medium carbonation. If this were a pale lager, which I think it is, its the best Ive ever had. Thats probably true for a strong pale lager, for that matter.

GT (10000) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 16, 2013
750mL from Brouwers cafe in Seattle. Clear, sparkling straw with massive white foam. Ridiculous volcanic lacing. A bit overcarbonated. Celery like nose with lemon, pear, cidery esters. Taste is extremely dry, mild alcohol bite, celery bite, long grassy bitterness. Huge carbonation. A good Lager attempt, but needs work. Less Alcohol to start. Yeast character being estery is off for Lager styles.

750, capped. Pours a hazy golden yellow with an absolutely towering platinum blonde head that lasts for hours and hours, whether youre lucky enough to keep it all in the glass or not. It definitely wants to be free like a butterfly--the mildest pour mounds it up and up. Nice white pepper notes on the nose. You go in suspecting saison overtones, you go in hearing about saison overtones, you get there and there are saison overtones. Orange peel, too. There go those saison overtones again. Fizzy body, just a positive eruption of carbonation down to the last drop. Crisp and light and airy. Lemons, oranges, and white pepper showing. Long peppery finish. These guys might just have this flavor profile burned into their equipment, or they might be posied to ride it to the hall of fame, or maybe both. Tasty stuff.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Bottle:   Hazy straw, huge fluffy white head, sticky lacing.   Bright grassiness, slightly peppery, zesty straw and hay.   Warming straw and hay on the tongue, minor citrus, peppery, even a touch floral.   Reminds me of a strong Pils mated with a Saison.   Somewhat dry, finishes a little spicy and peppery.   Alcohol is noticeable, and seems higher than 6.7%.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Bright finish.   Not as mealy or straight up grassy as others, seems to have this peppery/citrusy/floral spicy sort of flair.   Fairly decent.

egajdzis (6437) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 6, 2011
Hazy golden color with a large, white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of toast, toffee, honey, citrus, and grass. Taste of toffee malts, toast, honey, and a lightly bitter, hoppy finish.

Suttree (6325) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 16, 2010
Despite the rather silly "too cool for a name" posturing here, this was pretty tasty. I actually had this pegged as a saison - it was spicy and a little sweet, plus some subtle lemony notes. Some white wine, some oh, I dont know, Im gonna call it pear, too. Nice stuff...Sampled at the 2010 pre-brewers jam tasting.

Boutip (6273) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - APR 17, 2013
Bottle: Poured a hazy light yellow color ale with a huge foamy head with good retention and some pretty good lacing. Aroma of floral dry hops with some hay notes and some lightly sweet malt backbone. Taste is a nice mix between some lightly sweet malt notes with a light bready yeast with some hay and dry floral hoppy notes. Body is full with great bottle conditioning and some good carbonation. Not your typical lager but very enjoyable with nice hops profile.

Hazy yellow pour with creamy white head and lace. Dry wheaty aroma and lemon. Wheat, dry lemon, and a medium bitter. Thin fizzy and watery. Decent drinker.

(750ml bottle thanks to bu11zeye) cloudy pale yellow with a rocky huge meringue-like white head. Nose of grass, pineapple, floral, and lemon zest. Smells so good and clean! Taste of clean grain bill, lemon, very subtle earth, extremely smooth and easy to drink. Excellent lager! Id drink it all day if it was in cans.
