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, it’s the best I’ve ever had. That’s probably true for a strong pale lager, for that matter. leems (406) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 10, 2011
Bottle. Golden straw with a nice solid white head. This is a good lager, flavorful enough, a little alcohol bite, but still smooth. A little on the spendy side but you’ve got to pay for good art work like this label! deyholla (12033) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 19, 2011
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.

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. bu11zeye (13140) - 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.

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.

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. SrSilliGose (3331) - pouring bus, New Brunswick, CANADA - APR 27, 2012
Bottle. Notes of grass, wet graines, burnt toast, rye, and wet cat. Real nice pale lager. lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 16, 2010
Yellow-white, clear whitish head. Pear, floral aroma. Taste is spicy, more fruit, pear. j12601 (13033) - 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.
