Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a yellow color with a huge white head. The aroma is full of lemons, with some pale and pilsner malt. There is also some strong yeast notes in the aroma, as well as some white pepper.
The flavor is malt forward with a lot of biscuit notes. I also get a little bit of lemon and pepper, as well as some yeast. The beer is very dry and the alcohol is well hidden.
Medium mouthfeel and medium to high carbonation. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 7, 2011

In short: A very sharp pilsner style beer that goes off the beaten path. A strange but very enjoyable session beer.
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed fresh about one month after purchase. Bottle sent to me by mcberko, thanks a lot Matt
The look: Mostly clear yellow-blonde body (gets partially cloudy at the end of the bottle) topped by a HUGE white head with good retention leaving lots of lacings on the glass.
In long: Nose is full of yellowed grass, some lemongrass and with some hospital gloves style phenols. The well malted body is filled with pale pils malts with a dry plain salty crackers taste. Reminds me of salted Premium Plus™ crackers. I got a lot of salt/minerals (borderline metallic) sensation from this beer that just added to the astringency and didn’t feel out of place. Then comes the hops with a strong yellowed grass and citric character. Very sharp finish that is as citric and dry as it is bitter. The last 10% of the bottle was quite different from the rest. The doughy yeast changed everything. My bottle was stored for two weeks horizontally in a wine cellar but that wasn’t good enough. I recommend turning the bottle upside-down to spread the yeast before opening. There was some plastic/phenols from start to finish that lowers my overall score but by and large this is a wonderful session beer. The scores are pretty low for this so obviously I like it much more than most people. I’m probably wrong, I have low self esteem, and that’s all my fault..
Bottle a nicely hopped lager. 750 shared by Derek i believe. Pours a pale hazy golden body with a large white head and fantastic head retention. Aromatically nice citrus toned hops, light apple like fruit bitterness, a hint of dry grass and a nice bread y and clean body. A nice strong lager beer.

Golden yellow in color, clear with a thin head. Easy drinking lager. Smooth flavors nice malt and a good balance with the hops.
Bottle courtesy bu11zeye. Pours a cloudy light golden color with a foamy white head. Aroma is faint spice and funky grains. Saison like. Dry spice and leaves with a nice tingle over the tongue. Bitter finish.

Pours a bright cloudy lemon rind yellow with one of the most stable head formations I’ve ever seen. Billowing white head. Nose is interesting, almost tart, lemongrass and a light bready sweetness. Spicy zesty flavor with notes of citrus rind, white pepper, and bread dough. Crisp palate with a a light body. boFNjackson (4201) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 9, 2010
Bottle... Poured golden/pale with foamy, rocky, white head. Aroma was grassy, lemon, hops, crackers. Dry, crisp, clean, a creamy lactose quality. Vegetable, hop tone. Mild alcohol tone. TURDFERGUSON (4058) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - APR 27, 2011
Bottle from 5000. Thanks Andre! Great premium lager, without a doubt the best I have ever had. Lots of lemon, some honey,herbal and spicy hops. This beer had amazing retention. I would play Edward 40 Hands with this. JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAY 27, 2011
750ml from Northwest Liquid Gold. Label is *just* short of being really cool, but kudos for the effort. Very pale pour, with a big rocky cone of a head. Nose is soft and fairly understated, with ripe yeast, rind, and a hint of herbal bitterness. Full carbonation makes the body almost a bit too lively, but it was nice. Flavors were still just a bit muted, making this a not quite imperialized lager that’s very heavy on the lemon zest. Works for me. chibuck (3513) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 11, 2011
Pours a light grainy gold, tons of carbonation, not a gusher but beware when you pour, bright creamy white head, good lacing... the nose reminds me of a saison, lager yeast, citrus, lemons, and hay, pretty outstanding... the taste is more saison notes, yeast, lemons, with a musky light sour finish... this is a great sessionable beer
